Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Concept Render Shows 93% Screen to Body Ratio and Dual Rear Cameras

Xiaomi’s Mi MIX is still an awe-inspiring device. Just a few months after its release, the company announced that the concept-phone will get a successor called the Mi MIX 2 this year with Philippe Starck returning as designer.

For the Mi MIX 2, the focus is on how to further increase the screen-to-body ratio followed by the inclusion of flagship worthy specs. Xiaomi’s plan is to raise the screen-to-body  ratio to 93%. To achieve that, the lower bezel will have to be shrunk further.

A new set of renders have been posted online showing what the Mi MIX 2 might look like. The renders which were put together by the guys at TechConfigurations shows the Mi MIX 2 sporting dual rear cameras and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of the in-display fingerprint scanner it is rumored to come with.

The full specs list says the phone sports a 6.4-inch 2.5D QHD AMOLED display with 3D touch, a Snapdragon 653 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of ROM. The dual rear cameras are also said to be 16MP sensors with laser autofocus, OIS, and PDAF. The camera up front has been bumped up to an 8MP sensor while the body is still made from ceramic. At the base there is a USB Type-C port flanked on both sides by stereo speakers.

The renders look nice but they are still just renders. The final device may look different and even have a different set of internals too.

    A weaker, mid-tier version, huh? I’m hoping this would be half the price of the original Mi Mix, but heck that is some wishful thinking…

      The original Mi Mix was nothing more than a concept phone, and very few were actually made. That is what drove the price up. If these renders and specs are true, it should cost less in China, but second hand retailers will drive the price up. Keep in mind though when it comes to Xiaomi, you will see hundreds of leaks before a phone launches, most won’t be true.

    Fingerprint scanner on the back is a design flaw in my opinion.. You need to pick up the phone every time you want to unlock it. If front is not an option like here, they should put it on the side.

      Your take. I will never use/buy any phone with front Fingerprint scanner. The way we use our phones differ. For me front Fingerprint is facing ugly, that’s the singular reason i never used a Samsung, maybe that will change with the s8 on d way now

      I like both front and back, the few side mounted ones I have used have been terrible. Front is good so you don’t have to pick it up, back is good because it’s a natural position for you finger to rest.
