The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is finally official. This is the highly anticipated follow up to the original bezelless phone and Xiaomi has gone smaller with its successor.
Instead of the 6.4-inch 17:9 display of the first-gen Mi Mix, the Mi Mix 2 opts for a 5.99-inch 18:9 FullHD+ (2160x1080p) making its overall footprint smaller and bringing a higher screen-to-body ratio. Xiaomi boasts of a 12% reduced bottom bezel too and the front glass is curved on all sides.
The Mi Mix 2 naturally gets the top of the line Snapdragon chipset – the 835. It can be paired to 6GB or 8GB of RAM – the 6GB model has either 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage while the 8GB model is dubbed Special Edition has 128GB storage and a ceramic body.

There is a single camera on the back – the same a 12MP Sony IMX386 module, identical to the primary camera on the Xiaomi Mi 6 back and features 4-axis OIS. The front snapper has a modest 5MP resolution.
Power is delivered through a 3,400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 – that’s a drop of 1,000mAh compared to the original Mi Mix, which handled itself brilliantly in our battery life test. It’s interesting to see how the Mi Mix 2 fares.
