Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 design revealed in a video

This is the best and most genuine look we can get ever at Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 prior to its release. A video has been uploaded on Facebook showing the upcoming flagship product from all angles. Coming from Phillippe Starck, the French designer behind the Xiaomi Mi Mix concept phone, we believe this could be the final version of Mi Mix 2.

A new video of a bezel-less smartphone, with the text Mi Mix 2 conceptual product design, has been shared by Starck via his Facebook profile. On first look, the phone with stars-filled sky background might fool you to believe that it is a Samsung Galaxy phone. It looks very very similar to Galaxy S8 and upcoming Galaxy Note 8.

But as the video proceeds, showing the Mi Mix 2 from all angles, the beauty of the device surfaces gradually. The video shows the bezel-less display with curved edges and over 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. The bezel at the top is almost zero while below there’s a slight bar housing the selfie camera.

The bottom end is seen carrying a USB-C port in the middle and a pair of external speakers towards its right.

If this is the conceptual product design of Mi Mix 2, we are too excited to see what the final product will look like. To recall, the Mi Mix 2 phablet is touted to feature a 6.4-inch dual curved AMOLED 2K display, octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor, Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS with MIUI 9 skin on top. It is tipped to arrive in two storage versions – one with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage with $600 price tag and the premium variant with  a price tag of $750 packing  8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is expected to don an integrated fingerprint module and released in Q4 this year.

Meanwhile, in yet another leak, images of Mi Mix 2 (as seen above) appeared on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. These images are an exact replica of the Mi Mix 2 conceptual product design shared by Starck. There are  three images with different home-screen background.
