Update: Apart from the panel leak, another unrelated post on Weibo has leaked details regarding the Mi MIX 2’s specifications.
From the above screenshot, we can see that the device will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 SoC and feature 256GB of internal storage out of which ~245.07GB is user accessible. The display is slightly smaller than last years handset at 6.2-inch’s with a resolution of 1440 x2960 confirming the “tall” aspect ration claims.
The device is running on MIUI v.9 which is built on top of Android Oreo and is powered by a 4400mAh battery.
Xiaomi’s original Mi MIX was the smartphone that revived the whole minimal bezel movement. It is no surprise then that the entire smartphone enthusiast crowd eagerly awaits news regarding its successor. The Mi MIX 2 has been leaked earlier but it is only recently that the information has gotten more and more credible.
Today’s leak is courtesy Chinese microblogging site, Weibo where a user has posted images of the upcoming handsets front panel.
This follows in the footsteps of an earlier leak in which the rear panel of the MIX 2 was leaked which itself was preceded by a concept video from Mr Philippe Starck confirming his continued involvement in the design process.
Apart from this, most of the information at hand about the smartphone is still rumoured. Allegedly the smartphone will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The display might be a smaller 6.0-inch panel from JDI with a “tall” 18:9 aspect ratio and a screen-to-body-ratio of ~95%. Finally, the ceramic chassis might give way to an all-metal body. There is also ongoing speculation that there might be a Prime variant of the Mi MIX 2 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Powering all this hardware is a 3400mAh non-removable battery unit. Out of the box, the Mi MIX 2 is expected to run Android v.7.x, Nougat under the company’s proprietary MIUI skin.
The Mi MIX 2 is slated to be revealed on the 11th of September so we should see the number of leaks surrounding the handset to increase.
