Alleged Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 goes full-frontal in new leaked picture

We've had our fairshare of leaks related to Xiaomi's forthcoming Mi MIX 2, so one morewouldn't hurt, especially that we're less than a day ahead of itsofficial unveiling.

But first let's point outthat the alleged live picture of the phablet attached to this articlehas recently surfaced on Weibo in China, which is why we recommendtaking it with a grain of salt. Luckily, we won't have to wait toolong for a confirmation since Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will be introduced onSeptember 11 along with the Mi Note 3.

In case the image islegit, it confirms Xiaomi managed to shrink the bottom bezel evenmore in comparison with the original Mi MIX model. The device in thepictures looks like a true bezel-less phablet, something that only afew smartphone companies have been able to achieve.

Once again, the selfiecamera has been moved to the lower part of the front side. The bigvolume key and the power on/off buttons are on the right edge of thephone, while the left side is completely bare.

Since we're not offered aview of the top and bottom sides of the Mi MIX 2, we don't know forsure whether or not Xiaomi decided to remove the headphone jack port,but chances are the phablet will only pack USB Type-C.

Other than that, therearen't any new details revealed by this alleged image of the XiaomiMi MIX 2, at least not something that hasn't been leaked until now.

Looks beautiful, but I'd like to point something out to those interested: The Mi MIX is still stuck on Marshmallow. If you buy the MIX 2, expect ZERO support.

Well, Marshmallow isn't bad by any standard... but yeah, that's a very valid point you bring up.

As long as Apple sucks, who needs the latest version of Android?

No it's not... You can get MIUI 9 (7.9.7) on the Mi Mix, which is Nougat. Global ROM too.

Wrong. The original Mi Mix is on Miui 9 which is Nougat. Almost all Xiaomi phones ever made are upgradeable to MIUI 9 Nougat and also backward compatible to any previous version you wish to use. Xiaomi support their phones forever which is one of the things they're known for.

Gorgeous! Love the screen-to-bezel ratio. IMO, this is what Apple/Essential should have done.

The original Mi Mix couldn't even survive a 60cm drop. That's the thing about Chinese phones, they don't give a crap about reputation because they're selling hard and fast. The other guys care about durability and will always be slower to release a design or spec.

Still think the bezels should be symmetrical until you can completely remove both top and bottom. Samsung nailed the design. And LG. I hope the Pixel XL 2 is exactly like the V30 hardware wise.

Would bum me out if they got rid of headphone jack. If they improve that camera and a fat battery, this'll check all boxes for me.

Now this looks almost truly bezel less... Hope Samsung shrinks the top and bottom bezels on S9 too coz I hate the notch on the IPhone X screen even though I'm buying it...

Actually, the iPhone X has the least bezels out of them all due to the notch not going all the way across. This phone basically did the same but ran the bezel all the way across at the bottom.
