Photo of Xiaomi Mi MIX 2's rear panel allegedly leaks out

We've known for quite some time that Xiaomi's planning on releasing a successor to its much-lauded Mi MIX handset from late last year. But apart from an official 3D concept video, we haven't seen pretty much any news regarding the Mi MIX 2.

Today this might change, however, as an alleged photo of the device's rear shell has just surfaced online — and it's in a tasty white color to boot. The photo shows a pretty similar back panel to the one in the original Mi MIX, with the most major differences being that the panel is now made up of only one piece with no seams, and also features somewhat softer edges.

On the bottom edge sit a USB-C connector and a dual speaker, while the top part of the panel has two visible cutouts — presumably for the camera and fingerprint sensor. And if you're asking yourself why the panel looks so weirdly shiny, the answer is that it's most probably made out of ceramic, just like the Mi MIX's was.

We've previously heard some fairly impressive rumored specs about the device, but those were almost definitely just wishful thinking on a retailer's part. Still, we imagine the phone will once again come armed to the teeth specs-wise, though this year its bold design will face some stiff competition from the likes of Samsung.

And also, don't get your hopes up for a Western release this year, either — the phone will most likely only make its way to certain Asian countries once again.

Agree with you. Too gay phone. Also without metal frame will break after first fall. Ceramic is fragile. Also fingerprint on the back is not comfortable. Prefer side like Sony if under screen technology is not ready yet.

Hope it's around 7 mm thin. Thin and a juicy fat battery and bezeless is all it needs to be!
