Most manufacturers have already unveiled their flagship devices for this year and have made them available for sale. Xiaomi is one of them as the company's flagship Mi 6 has gone on sale in the company's homeland China.
Notably, the Xiaomi Mi 6 is not the only flagship that we can expect from China for the whole year. We say this as the company announced the Mi Mix bezel-less phone last year that had a very high demand among users. This smartphone is speculated to get a successor dubbed Mi Mix 2 later this year. We already have confirmations from the company about the Mi Mix successor and now there is an interesting information, thanks to a new leak.
Unique 18:9 display
A recent post on Weibo suggests that a new Mi phone that is slated to be launched in the second half of this year will sport a display with a unique aspect ratio of 18:9. The Mi Mix was the first smartphone to arrive with such a display that was followed by the current flagship devices - LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8.
Likely to be the Mi Mix 2
Xiaomi will be launching the Mi Note 3 and Mi Mix 2 in the second half of this year. As the leak doesn't suggest on which device will exactly sport this 18:9 ratio feature, it is likely to be the Mi Mix 2. We say this as the 18:9 display ratio is seen only on flagship devices and the Mi Note 3 might not be the device in question as it is an affordable device.
93% screen-to-body ratio
The original Mi Mix had a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3%. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is said to arrive with a higher screen-to-body ratio of 93% and an integrated fingerprint module. The device is said to arrive with a 6.4-inch curved AMOLED 2K display and run on Android 7.0 Nougat topped with MIUI 9.
