I guess you already know that Xiaomi has decided to work (once again) with renowned French designer Philip Starck for the next MIX model, in order to secure a most prominent design for the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 model.
But how about some fresh news on this subject? According to recent rumors the most awaited Mi MIX 2 will come with several innovative features, such as in-display fingerprint sensor by the Chinese company Goodix, that just unveiled this new technology a couple of days ago during MWC 2017. Its an innovative technology that can transform a defined part of the display into a fingerprint sensor, thus removing the need for a fingerprint sensor button or a rear-mounted sensor! (this is the same technology that Apple’s iPhone 8 will presumably use as well).
According to the well informed industry analyst Pan Jiutang, the new MIX 2 is expected to be unveiled sometime in the second half of the year, probably next fall. Apart from using the next-gen in-display fingerprint sensor, it is expected to offer larger screen/body ratio (larger than 91.3%) and even better build quality.
