There isn't a lot of information to go on just yet, but here's everything we think we know about the Mi Mix 2. The near bezel-less design was striking but a couple of usability issues prevented it from being a world-beater. According to the CEO of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, the company is already working on a successor to this widely popular device.

Jun posted the following on Weibo (in Chinese), along with a picture, "Today, I am pleased to meet again with worldwide design master Philip Stark, who introduced me the design concept of millet MIX next generation, and then we both will continue to explore how to make these exciting innovations as a reality The product".

Unfortunately, the executive didn't reveal nothing much about the Mi Mix 2, but we can expect the device to get launched sometime in the second half of the year. Mi Mix, which began as a concept or experimental phone that Xiaomi then launched in 2016, has an unbelievable 91.3 percent screen-to-body ratio. The handset's front panel consists nearly entirely of a 6.4-inch display, 2040 x 1080 pixels.

It's certainly an exciting prospect but Xiaomi itself hasn't even finalized its plans for the handset yet, so anything could happen. In fact, the phone has a whopping 91.3 per cent screen-to-body ratio, making the phone bezel-less in nature.

The phone essentially uses an ultrasonic proximity sensor through the display.

To put things in perspective, the original Mi MIX features a 6.4-inch display and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor paired with 4GB of RAM. The Mi MIX also comes in a "Pro" variant, which features 256GB storage, 6GB of RAM, and the rings around the camera lens and fingerprint sensor are made up of 18K gold.
