China-based electronics giant Xiaomi has launched the Mi MIX 2, a bezel-less smartphone designed on the concept of Mi MIX device that was introduced last year. In addition, the company also launched Mi Note 3, which sports a dual-camera setup and a 16-megapixel front camera, and new Mi Notebook Pro.

The Mi MIX 2 is built on the foundation of the original concept. But the new smartphone is now 11.9 per cent smaller than its predecessor and has a 5.99-inch screen in an 18:9 aspect ratio.

The second-generation Mi MIX smartphone uses a hidden speaker instead of piezoelectric speaker solution that was used in original concept. The Mi MIX 2 continues using the ultrasonic proximity sensor, which allows the device to fade into the background, while the focus is entirely on the screen.

The Mi MIX 2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and uses Sony IMX386 sensor in its 12-megapixel primary camera that supports 4-axis optical image stabilisation (OIS), which reduces the effect of handshake or motion, so images and videos remain sharp.

Soon after the launch, Manu Kumar Jain, Vice-President Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India confirmed through his official Twitter channel that the Mi MIX 2 is coming to India soon.

The 16-megapixel front camera captures light better with less image noise thanks to large 2μm pixels, achieved by combining multiple pixels on the image sensor into one.
