Report: Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 could share its unveiling date with the Apple iPhone 8
Last week, we showed you a video made by the designer of the Xiaomi Mi MIX and the Mi MIX 2, Philippe Starck. The concept video showed a phone with very thin side-bezels and minuscule top and bottom bezels. Even though the device in the video is a concept, it very well could be giving us an advance look at the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2. After all, when the person behind a concept is the official designer of the real phone (and its predecessor) you have to take that concept more seriously.

Earlier this week, a report out of China claimed that the MIX 2 had received its necessary China Compulsory Certification‎ (CCC or 3C), which could mean that the handset is closing in on an official introduction. And the latest rumor being discussed around water coolers throughout China is that Xiaomi will unveil the Mi MIX 2 on September 12th. If that date sounds familiar, it's because that is the same day that Apple is rumored to be introducing the 2017 iPhone line.

Frankly, we can't see Xiaomi taking a chance on having media coverage of the MIX 2 wiped out by Apple's introduction of the tenth anniversary iPhone. Don't be surprised if the actual unveiling of the MIX 2 comes before the introduction of the new iPhone models. This would guarantee the fullest exposure of Xiaomi's latest MIX handset on the day it is announced.
