Xiaomi has officially launched Mi Mix 2 as expected today, the company’s next-generation smartphone with ultra narrow top and sides bezels. This comes with a 5.99-inch FHD+ display that flaunts the now-trending 18:9 aspect ratio, unlike its predecessor.
It has a curved ceramic body design with aluminium frame around the edges, measuring 7.7mm at its thickest point with the weight pegged at 185 grams. Xiaomi is offering a Special Edition with full ceramic body that is slightly heavier at 187 grams. Due to the lack of top bezel space, the front camera is embedded on the right bottom of the phone display with supports of facial recognition, which provides additional security when combines with the phone fingerprint biometric authentication provided via its rear-placed fingerprint sensor.
The phone utilize cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic system in delivering callers voice during voice call without using an earpiece. This technology is used on its predecessor as well. The standard version is equipped with a 6GB of RAM while the Special Edition comes with an 8GB of RAM, both powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipsets.
