This is probably the last leak of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 you’re going to see, because in a matter of hours the device goes live. This handset has an edge to edge display and it may even go past 91% screen to body ratio this time.
It feels like the Galaxy S8 on steroids, with those ultra narrow bezels you can barely see. The front camera is there, in the very small chin and the handset has gently curved corners. 18:9 aspect is a given and the curvature of the front panel is visible if you look closely. I can only imagine how immersive watching video on this beast is, plus the gaming.
The back may end up as the deal maker or breaker here, since it can make the whole machine slippery, or aid its grip. The implementation of the frame is vital, since it can either grip onto your fingers and palm or simply be rigid against it. If the back is also glass, a slip is guaranteed. I can’t quite make out a speaker, so maybe we’ve got the piezoelectric thing going on. Now sit back and enjoy the launch of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 in a few hours or so.
