A bezel haters' dream phone!
Remember the Xiaomi Mi Mix? The living concept phone from 2016, with that crazy 91% screen to body ratio?! It just received a sequel. And yes, it's called the Mi Mix 2.

The original Mix was a terrific smartphone which didn't receive as much attention from buyers, as it deserved. Xiaomi wants to do something about it with this iteration.

They've done a few changes onto the design, and hopefully make it more appealing to the average consumer.

First of all, the Mix 2 is smaller than the original Mix. The display is reduced to 6 inches (QHD) from the original 6.4 inches.

It's an AMOLED panel this time, with punchy saturated colors and deep blacks. It looks fantastic.

The fingerprint sensor on the rear is even faster than before. It's always nice to see great stuff get even greater!

Smaller and faster!
Speaking of design, the back is still made out of ceramic. But the frame on the standard edition Mix 2 is made our aluminium.

There's a special edition of the phone with a ceramic uni body and 8 gigs of RAM. The standard version has 6 gigs of it.

Other specs include a Snapdragon 835 CPU, 64/128/256 GB storage variants and the new Adreno 540 for graphics.

The camera has got some improvements as well. The rear camera is a 12 mp ensot this time, as opposed to the 16 mp of last time. The aperture remains at f/2.0, but it has OIS.

The front camera is the same 5 mp standard angle sensor. There are no gimmicky add-ons here, like dual cameras or futuristic autofocus systems. Just plain old optics.

Ceramic beauty
The battery size has dropped this time. It is a 3400 mAh unit, coupled with fast charging over a USB type-C port.

The other aesthetic features remain the same, like that 18k gold ring around the camera, the front camera on the bottom right corner of that chin, the bezel less body and of course, MIUI.

There's one major change though. The earpiece is not a piezoelectric vibratory anymore. It's a traditional speaker, tucked on the top edge of the frame. It's somewhat similar to what Essential have done with their PH-1.

So there you have it. A first look at the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. What do you think? Will you actually buy this real life future phone? Or are you just waiting for the next iPhone or the Galaxy?

Let's chat over at twitter. Feel free to share this post with your friends, and remember to come back next time.
