In 2016, Xiaomi unveiled the first concept smartphone dubbed the Mi MIX. This was actually the first phone to show the world what a bezel-less smartphone design looks like and due to the traction it gained, the company came in with a successor just last month – the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2.
The new phone takes the incredibly slim top and side bezels of the original Mi MIX and improves on them. It also makes the significantly bigger bottom bezel much smaller than last year. Now, design matters aside, the Chinese OEM has just started rolling out a new software update that brings the Global Stable version of the MIUI 18.104.22.168 to the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2. The update is available for download via the company’s official forums or through the official OTA channel.
As pointed out, the Mi MIX 2 is no longer posing as a concept phone. The device is now a full consumer-ready handset that offers everything mainstream smartphone users want in a phone. The screen size stands at 5.99 inches, an LCD panel that features an 18:9 aspect ratio and 2160 x 1080 pixels of resolution. The specs under the hood are as equally powerful as what you find on the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, HTC U11, LG V30, Google Pixel 2 and son.
When unveiling the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, the company mentioned that the device would soon be updated to MIUI 9, but so far, there’s still no official date as to when this will be happening. For now, those who own a Mi MIX 2 and want a non-Chinese experience, the new Global Stable ROM is what you need to have on your phone right away.
Being the first update, there isn’t so much to talk about in terms of changes and new features. In fact, there’s still no official changelog, but the company has published official download links for Fastboot and Recovery. There’s also an official page where you can report any major issues discovered in the new software. For anyone using the latest and official MIUI China Stable ROM, the latest update should hit your Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 as an OTA. Alternatively, you can use the Updater app to do a manual update or manually flash the update on the phone by yourself.
