Et tu, Xiaomi? There isn’t much context to these photos but they allegedly show the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s – a reworked version of the bezel-less phone that now features an iPhone X-style cutout on top.
This moves the selfie camera to a more natural position and should help reduce the bottom bezel, though that is not clearly visible in these shots.
The “horns” around the cutout are wider, leaving more room for icons in the status bar compared to the iPhone. Still, if the Essential Phone is any indication, Android apps don’t play well with such cutouts (developers explicitly need to support it, otherwise the top of the screen is a dead area).
What do you think? Will such a redesign by Xiaomi prove popular or do you like the classic Mix design better?
