The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is finally official. This is the highly anticipated follow up to the original bezelless phone and Xiaomi has gone smaller with its successor.
Instead of the 6.4-inch 17:9 display of the first-gen Mi Mix, the Mi Mix 2 opts for a 5.99-inch 18:9 FullHD+ (2160x1080p) making its overall footprint smaller and bringing a higher screen-to-body ratio. Xiaomi boasts of a 12% reduced bottom bezel too and the front glass is curved on all sides.
The Mi Mix 2 naturally gets the top of the line Snapdragon chipset - the 835. It can be paired to 6GB or 8GB of RAM - the 6GB model has either 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of storage while the 8GB model is dubbed Special Edition has 128GB storage and a ceramic body.
There is a single camera on the back - the same a 12MP Sony IMX386 module, identical to the primary camera on the Xiaomi Mi 6 back and features 4-axis OIS. The front snapper has a modest 5MP resolution.
Power is delivered through a 3,400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 - that's a drop of 1,000mAh compared to the original Mi Mix, which handled itself brilliantly in our battery life test. It's interesting to see how the Mi Mix 2 fares.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 comes with MIUI 9 based on Android 7 Nougat.
The standard aluminum Mi Mix 2 comes in black, while the 8GB RAM ceramic Special edition is available in black or white. The 6GB+64GB Mi Mix 2 will run you RMB 3,299 (€420), the 6GB+128GB costs RMB 3,599 (€460), the 6GB+256GB is RMB 3,999 (€510). The 8GB+128GB ceramic unibody special edition is €700.

They did last year (mix 1). That is what / most are complaining about. They could simply rerelease mix 1 and it would still be a better phone... all they managed with mix 2 is/was to find a reason to drop support for mix 1...
Well it didn't, it is actually more bezeled than the original, in absokute numbers too (upper bezel is bigger for example)... Nobody told them that they should decrease the internal volume of the phone.
