Retailer listing suggests the sequel to the Mi MIX will be a specs beast
The Xiaomi Mi MIX was one of last year's great surprises, and its welcome reception demonstrated the tech world's keen interest in (almost) edge-to-edge design. Naturally, there's been quite a bit of speculation as to what the device's successor may include, with a recent rumor suggesting the so-called Mi MIX 2 could offer an even more impressive screen-to-body ratio than the first iteration. Now, a rather premature GearBest listing suggests the next-gen model could arrive with up to 8 gigs of RAM.
Of course, this information is not confirmed, which makes sense given that the Mi MIX 2 has not even been made official as yet. Nonetheless, this is potentially exciting for those chasing the higher-end specs, and fittingly, the Mi MIX 2 will apparently be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor and Adreno 540 graphics. If the details are correct, the entry-level model will include 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, with a mid-tier version to be laden with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM. The top-end, 8 GB RAM version, meanwhile, is said to be furnished with 256 GB of internal storage.
The display is touted as a 6.4-inch, 1440 x 2540 AMOLED offering, while the 19-megapixel main camera could be accompanied by a 13-megapixel selfie shooter. Firmware-wise, GearBest's listing has the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 running MIUI 9 atop Android 7.1 Nougat.
Without any concrete leaks or solid information, we're going to take this with a pinch of salt for the time being. The image accompanying the listing has clearly been whipped up with some haste, and doesn't really try to appear official. Thus, we'll reserve our excitement until we have something a little more substantial to mull over.
