Ceramic is one of the best material for smartphones when it comes to the antenna signal transmission as well as appearance. But making ceramic bodies is the way complicated than glass or metal housings. That’s why many manufacturers avoid of making their models with this material. However, if you want to design a premium flagship featuring a number of innovative technologies, you just have to use something like that. When the Chinese Apple has been working on its top-end smartphone dubbed as the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, no other body material was being discussed but the ceramic. The latter was on the first-gen model, and it should appear on the Mi MIX 2 as well. But as there are real production capacity problems related to this material, the company decided to come in with two versions. The regular one sports a ceramic housing and a metal frame, while the second variant uses the all-ceramic body. We have already seen the black version, but there was no hint when the white all-ceramic Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will go on sale. Today it became known we will be able to get our hands on this phone in the very near future.

About a month back Xiaomi CEO, Jei Lun posted a few photos of the upcoming white version to his social media profile. It made a huge stir around it because production process of a white ceramic housing is really too complicated. According to the technical documents, the ceramic body should go through 1400 C high temperature during 7 days and 240 tons molding. Plus, the 0.01mm cutter head used for the repeated carving should be replaced for each phone. That’s why the phone looks like a piece of natural jade. A couple of weeks ago, we also learned the all-ceramic Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 had appeared on TENAA. This was a clear hint its launch date is getting closer. As for now, Xiaomi marketing director, Zang Zhiyuan has officially announced this phone is going to be listed among available devices in coming days.
Many think the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 white all-ceramic version will go on sale on November 11. As you know, it’s called Double 11 or Singles’ day, and it’s the China largest online shopping day. So once this company launches it on this date, there will be every chance to hit the jackpot. On the other hand, this phone will sell like hotcakes no matter what.
Finally, as for the features and pricing, the white Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will sport a 5.99-inch screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels as well as a pixel density of 403ppi, a contrast ratio of 1500:1, and color gamut of DCI-P3, Snapdragon 835 chip, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, 5MP front shooter, 12MP rear camera, 3400mAh battery, and it will cost 4699 yuan ($709).
