by Jed John 4

Xiaomi Mi Mix’s designer Philippe Starck, Thursday made a visit to Xiaomi’s headquarters in China in what could be a pre-launch visit for the Mi Mix 2. Philippe Starck had made a similar visit to the Beijing-based headquarters of the tech giant a couple of months back. During that visit, it was disclosed that the French design would still design the Mi Mix 2.Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

The company shared some photos of the Mi Mix designer having an exciting time with staffs at the headquarters.Obviously, the visit is to discuss the Mi Mix 2 and they did state that. Xiaomi’s CEO even stated point-blank that Starck was at the headquarters to discuss the next generation of Mix. We didn’t get to find out the details of the discussion but we believe things will unravel as time goes on.

Already, there are rumours that the Mi Mix 2 will be released next month but we’re not so sure about that. An earlier rumoured had tipped the Mi Mix 2 to make its debut in the second half of the year and H2 2017 begins next month. Even though Xiaomi doesn’t drop the Mix 2 next month, it is likely the device may drop very soon. In addition, the Mi Mix 2 may be launched along with the Mi Note 3 just the same way Xiaomi announced the first-gen Mi Mix and Galaxy Note 2 together.xiaomi mi mix 2

There are also likely to be a number of innovative features on the next-gen concept flagship phone.

    Xiaomi has wasted such a beautiful design with many poor choices.

    Full ceramic body makes it uber fragile, keeps yields low and and rises the bill of materials cost.

    LCD display panels is also made of glass thus fragile. Without bezels it is more vulnerable. You can see on Youtube at a drop test frame is broken and screen is stopped working.

    If the Mix was made of an aluminium alloy and had flexible OLED for example, millions of them could be manufactured easily and dropping it wouldn’t be more fatal than any other phone despite near bezelless design. Also hence OLED is thinner than LCD panels, without compromising the thickness of the device and avoiding a camera hump they could put in it a larger sensor camera and OIS which means much better picture quality and a larger battery.

    This guy is an expert designer, but designer only. He obviosly knows how to make a product visually attractive, but he is not an engineer.
