Report: Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 could share its unveiling date with the Apple iPhone 8
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.
