Xiaomi’s Mi Mix smartphone was launched just a new months back and it seems like Xiaomi is already working on its successor. In a post on Weibo, Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun announced that he had met up with designer Phillipe Starck (the designer of the Mi Mix) to discuss the design of the next generation Mi Mix. In his post, Jun states, “Today, I am pleased to meet again with international 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.”
Besides the fact that it will be designed by the same person, almost nothing much is known about the Mi Mix 2. Rumours suggest that Xiaomi is now aiming for a 93 percent screen to body ratio with the Mi Mix 2. The original Mi Mix already offered an impressive screen to body ratio of 91.3 percent.
The Mi Mix was launched in December last year and offers a 6.4-inch FHD display. However, unlike most other smartphones, it doesn’t have a top bezel. The earpiece, and sensors were embedded behind the display, while the front camera was moved to the bottom of the device.
