Description

The Mi Mix 2 is Xiaomi's follow up to the futuristic Mi Mix bezelless, limited edition phone. Its standout feature is its design - a highly scratch-resistant ceramic body houses a 6-inch displa that nearly fills the entire front side. Specs like the Snapdragon 835 SoC and the plentiful memory cement this phone in the high-end category. A standard 12MP camera is at the back, along with a fingerprint scanner, while a selfie shooter is positioned at an odd position - below the display.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 403 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
