Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 with 99% Screen-to-Body Ratio Looks Far from Reality



At the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 launch event held last month in China, Xiaomi also came with a concept phone called Mi MIX. Unlike other concept devices, the showcased Mi MIX is the final product and is already on sale in China. Though the number of units manufactured are limited to less than 10,000 units per month. In its first sale happened on November 4th, the device went out of stock in just 10 seconds. The device is completely built with ceramic and the 6.4-inch display on the front is said to offer 91.3% screen to body ratio. As far as my knowledge, the Hisense Magic Mirror tablet launched in 2015 is the only other device to offer more than 90% screen-to-body ratio.

Now the unofficial concept images of the Mi MIX’s successor looks even more interesting. The Mi MIX 2 is said to offer 99% screen-to-body ratio, and we don’t think, this to be a reality anytime soon. While the company is calling the display on Mi MIX an edgeless display, still the Mi MIX 2 isn’t completely bezel-less like on Nubia Z11 smartphone. There is a thin bezel on all the four sides while the Mi MIX came with a three-sided edgeless display. As seen on Sharp Aquos smartphones, Xiaomi also placed the front camera on the bottom bezel of the Mi MIX. Now, the Mi MIX 2 completely lacks the selfie camera anywhere on the front of the device; it can found the other side of slide-up arm carrying the rear camera.

The fingerprint sensor which is placed on the rear of the Mi MIX is shifted to the right edge of the device; it comes integrated into the power button. This similar setup can be found on the high-end Sony Xperia devices including the recently launched Xperia XZ. The SIM card slot is placed on the left edge while the volume rocker in on the right of the device. We can find the rear camera with dual-LED flash on the back of Mi MIX 2. The speaker grill, USB Type-C Port, and 3.5mm audio port are on the bottom edge of the device. As of now, these are just CAD rendering and most probably this device will not be a reality. While Xiaomi increased the screen-to-body limit to 91.3%, let’s hope someday some other manufacturer launches a smartphone with 99% screen to body ratio.

The Mi MIX is prone as there is no much protection and now, if we had a smartphone with 99% screen-t0-body ratio, then we need to carry it like an antique. Though the Mi MIX will not be sold here in India, we got the device from the brand. The unboxing and camera review of the device is already done, but at the time of recording the Mi MIX FAQ video, the device was accidentally dropped from less than 1 feet height and there is a hairline crack on top of the display. While the device is working fine normal, the display might not be cracked if the company had opted for Gorilla Glass protection on top.
