As reported earlier, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 smartphone is expected to be announced sometime in the second half of this year. Further, a new report has now surfaced online revealing a bunch of interesting features.
As per the report from GizmoChina, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is expected to come with a curved AMOLED display that offers a screen-to-body ratio of 93% of the device. The existing Mi Mix comes with an LCD display covering 91.3% of the front panel. It means that the Mi Mix 2 bezels will be thinner than Mi Mix. Moreover, Mi Mix 2 will take the ceramic design from its predecessor and the in-display fingerprint scanner from the recently launched Mi 5c. In other words, the smartphone has its fingerprint sensor placed underneath the display panel.
For the design, Mi Mix II will be designed by the same French designer Philippe Starck who designed its predecessor Mi MIX. The company is aiming at a smartphone whose screen can cover the front panel of the phone. Also, the smartphone will not be having any physical buttons. The Mi MIX II will be the first Chinese phone to not have a physical button if this comes into reality.
