First, recently Japanese JDI announced it had officially started making 6-inch 18:9 LCD screens. The official statement also says those screens will be used in a new alignment layout and mobile assembly technology. Apart of this, the JDI screens will support Pixel Eyes technology for higher contrast, wet hand touch operations and many more. As Xiaomi has previously used this screen (in its Mi 5C), it’s assumed this new display will come to new Mi devices as well. The most possible version is the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2. But if the Chinese manufacturer decided to pack its next-gen MIX handsets with this screen, the Japanese JDI should provide a few enhancements such as under-glass fingerprint scanner. If not, Xiaomi should think of iris/face recognition systems. At last, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 screen-to-body ratio is assumed to be at 93%. This is a big step forward in comparison to the current model’s 91.3% ratio.
As for the overall appearance and key features, the Mi MIX 2 has been leaked via GearBest. Accordingly, it will sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel with a 2560×1440 resolution (Quad-HD or 2K), Snapdragon 835 processor with 4/6/8GB RAM and 128/256GB ROM, 19MP rear camera and 13MP front-facing camera, a 4,500 mAh battery, and MIUI 9 out of the box. But it’s also rumored this phone will come with a dual-camera.
Well, there is no official statement concerning the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 features and design. So we only can enjoy the 3D renderings made by Concept Creator. As you can see, the Mi MIX 2 can come with narrower borders, larger screen ratio, but most likely it wouldn’t use a dual-camera module, and the fingerprint scanner is on the back. The overall appearance is acceptable and this concept looks pretty nice, but whether the final version of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will look so still remains a mystery.
