Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 front panel emerges, design coincides with alleged live pic

The announcement date for Xiaomi's Mi MIX 2 is just around the corner, and, as usual, more and more leaks are starting to come in. We've already seen alleged images of the phone's back and front, and today, we have another leak for you coming straight from Chinese website Weibo.

As you can see, this new photo pretty much coincides with the supposed live image of the device's front - there are three extra thin bezels on the left, right, and top, while a slightly thicker chin is situated at the bottom. Up till now, the general assumption was that the Mi Mix 2 will boast a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, much like the original Mi MIX. However, there are speculations that version 2.0 of the phone will have to make due with a smaller 6-inch screen.

Rumored specs for the new Mi MIX include a Snapdragon 835 chipset with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. Three versions of the phone are reportedly on the way. The base model will have 4GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. A mid-range variant is expected to feature 6GB of RAM along with 128GB of native storage, and the top model is said to be equipped with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage. A 19MP camera is rumored to grace the back of the Mi MIX 2, with a 13MP front-facing selfie snapper.

Mi mix 2 looks drop dead gorgeous. The new meizu and ZTE Nubia look great as well. Many many choices to pick from.

I've owned every conceivable Chinese phone and starting with my oppo find 5 and ending with my Vivo xplay 6, none of those phones stuttered to become a problem as many state. My LG g6 on the other hand did stutter a few times already

Well not completely bezeless as the concept video but still nice. I'm just glad the screen is flat!

Just another copy of the S8, but maybe less bezel to try really hard to impress it's buyers. Lol. Copy cats never learn.

keithtae, try educating yourself. The original Mi Mix was the phone that started it all, not Samsung.

Xiaomi came out with their bezel-less Mi Mix last year, a long time before the S8. So how the heck can their second one be a copy now?

The original Mi Mix was by far the first to release a small bezel phone. Their tremendous success was what led to many other companies following the "bezel-less" bandwagon

In that case, let's agree Xiaomi copied the bezel-less concept from Sharp... Fair enough.

You could argue that. But I look at it like the horse and cart. After a while someone decided to replace the horse with an engine and that eventually evolved into modern day automobiles. They both serve the same purpose but far differently.

Bezel-less hmmph. Someday u won't be able use your phone normally, you'd have to lay it on one palm and punch it with the other, I guess they'll be called 'punchphones' then.

Agree. I love having some bezel, I love this s8+ but almost not enough bezel. I loved the bezels on my note 5, it was just right.

We can't just judge its outside look. I mean it does look great in spec, but the most important thing is how is it efficient in user experience? Those Chinese phones are prone to lag, stutter, unresponsive, bug, freeze, force closed,... the overall performance is very unstable, not to mention the quality doesn't deliver as it suggests, for example 20Mp camera phones from this cheap Xiaomi equals only to 5Mp selfie camera from Samsung's.or LG's midrange phones. We need a complete different approach in this 21st century. A phone that only can makes a phone call doesn't mean it's a phone. The Galaxy line products are the definition of positive change. People have loved what they got from Samsung's hardworking and unique ability. And all these Chinese copycat are trying to be fake reality by taking Samsung's approach, yet their quality are nowhere near the authentic ones. Want to live in a world without corruption and set yourself in a standard level? Start cleaning up those cheap counterfeit copycat Chinese junk products.

Most phone innovations of the past few years have come from your so called junk, copycat Chinese phone companies. Try a high end Xiaomi, ZTE, Oppo (One Plus) or Huawei before you talk crap.

All those problems you mentioned about Chinese phones are exactly what I experienced in all of my Samsung phones. After I had to return my Note 7 due to the safety hazard, I bought a Google Nexus 6p and OMG I was surprised that Android phones can run at near the level of smoothness of Apple phones. Previously all my android phones were by Samsung and that's why I had the misconception that all Android phones were buggy as hell compared to Iphones. I had so many problems with Galaxy phones such as GPS randomly dropping and doesn't automatically reconnect on several Galaxies, camera on Note 3 after a year is unusable because the screen creates a jello wobbling effect and becomes unusable, crash and freezes, battery draining in less than half a day of usage, and horrendous lags after installing a few apps. Same apps did not cause any issues on my Nexus 6P. I have friends who's been using Samsung phones for a while and are planning to get the IPhone 8 because they are sick and tired of the lagginess and many other problems they experienced with Samsung's phones. At least when IPhones have problems, Apple addresses them right away and releases updates to fix them in a timely manner whereas Samsung, known to be one of the most unethical companies in the world, don't give a s**t after they take your money. I've been reading professional and user reviews on the Chinese phones released in the past few years and they have been very positive and if they actually did release them in the U.S., I would consider buying them over Samsung phones, unless they are the same price of Iphones, then I would get the Iphone for sure.

Most people are ok with Chinese phones. Don't forget Samsung also sells low-entry trash.

Xiaomi has started it all. They made bezel less phone concept famous. Then Samsung and LG followed. Don't forget that Mi Mix last year has started it all single handedly.

"Xiaomi has started it all. They made bezel less phone conceptfamous." Ever heard of the Sharp Arquos Crystal released in 2014?

Yeah , everyone is following everyone, and I mean EVERYONE with the almost non existent bezels even IOS so what's your point. It's not just Android.

Who wants big bezels?? Apple will copy this just like they have copied every other Android device, then claim its their idea and charge twice the price

Everyone and their bezel-less designs. Not to bad. I think the Samsung one is better, only because the sides curve away from the view and are nearly invisible in certain conditions. This looks pretty decent though. I wouldn't mind trying it out.

I think this is better, as the screen seems to remain flat which is preferred over curved.

Not preferred by everyone.
