Xiaomi Mi MIX was the first phone to come with a near bezel-less display screen when it launched in late 2016.
The phone has zero bezels on three sides, with the bottom side the only place you find a bezel that houses the selfie camera. Given that the Xiaomi Mi MIX is almost one year old, news of its successor has just started showing up and apparently, we have our eyes on the possible specs of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 thanks to a benchmark listing on Geekbench.
When the original Mi MIX was unveiled, the phone did not just impress in terms of design, but it also came in with top-notch specs and features. From the benchmarks, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is set to pick up from where the 2016 model left off, at least in terms of hardware specs. The benchmarks can confirm that the Mi MIX 2 will be coming in with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that is mated with a humongous 6GB RAM, but don’t be surprised if another 8GB RAM variant also shows up.
Out of the box, the phone will be powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat, which is not a surprise considering that the Mi MIX also came in with Android 6.0 Marshmallow yet Android 7.0 Nougat had already been unveiled.
Other than these hardware specs, the Geekbench listing doesn’t give us more of what the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will come with. However, previous rumors have suggested that the phone will keep its 6.4-inch curved AMOLED display screen with a QHD resolution and an in-display fingerprint scanner. Last year’s model had a massive body-to-screen ratio of 91.3% and apparently, the Mi MIX 2 is set to better this, but the exact details are still unclear.
The Mi MIX was released in November 2016 and if this timeline is to be maintained, we only have about four months before the Mi MIX 2 shows up.
