A year ago, in the presentation of Xiaomi Mi Note 2, the company had an ace stored in the sleeve. Presented as a conceptual cell phone we would later know how Xiaomi Mi MIX was shown before our eyes as a design exercise, but one with some very real details.
We thoroughly analyzed the Xiaomi Mi Mix, one of the cell phones of the year. Powerful, with a great screen, innovative … It has almost everything.
When it was announced the price, we all realized that it was something commercial. And that was the time when the brand changed the idea that we would have high end phones, at least in terms of front design.
A year later, the tables were changed and the absolute protagonist of the Xiaomi event is the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 a terminal extensively filtered by both the company and other sources. And we have already seen it, we can say that it is able to return to lead another year of Android phones, again at least in terms of design.

A screen of infarction
The central aspect of this model is undoubtedly its huge screen that reduces its frames. But this statement is taken to a new level and is that although Philippe Stark is in front of us, the new Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 reduces all frames in the front which makes the size of the terminal more content than that of his predecessor. For this, new technologies were used that allow the screen to pass over some components.
In addition, now the corners have a much more pronounced curvature, which gives a more fluid and comfortable image.
The resolution will be FHD +, that is, the 18: 9 screen variant of the traditional FullHD resolution. These 2,160 × 1,080 px will be mounted on a 5.99-inch IPS panel .

You will have a fingerprint sensor located in the rear area just like the original Mi MIX, and we forget futuristic security forms like the sensor under the screen.
The battery will be 3,400 mAh and will have fast charge technology Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. As expected would come with the new interface, MIUI 9, which will run on Android 7 Nougat.
