Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 to feature Snapdragon 836 SoC, Android 8.0 Oreo

Posted September 05, 2017

However there are chances that Xiaomi would implement it considering that is what most other smartphones are offering. Since it's Samsung, Mi 7 might end up sporting a bezel-less front panel and a taller-than-usual aspect ratio, possibly 16:9. Apart from that, there are quite a few images of the promo campaign for the Mi MIX 2 in China. The device will be the first smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 Octa-core SoC, paired with at least 6 GB RAM and 256 GB onboard flash storage. Presumably called the Mi 7, a new Weibo-sourced report claims that the handset will run on a Snapdragon 845 processor.

Xiaomi released the Mi Mix previous year, and it proved to be a success. Even though it is quite hard to imagine, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will actually have slimmer bezels than its predecessor did.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will be the true flagship from the company with the following features.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will launch in China on september 11, just a day before Apple's iPhone 8/iPhone Edition event in Cupertino, California. While there has not been any official word from Qualcomm regarding the launch of the processor, the 836 is expected to be a slightly more powerful version of the 835. Having said that, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 had surfaced a number of times thus far, the phone's renders leaked earlier today, while its front panel surfaced a couple of days ago. The Mix 2 is also expected to come with a 4,400mAh battery, which will probably be the largest battery to feature on a flagship. The display stretches from edge-to-edge with just a strip of bezel at the bottom. However, we'll soon know what the real deal is.

The cameras will also be a dual setup and the phone itself will have two variants. Because it is set to launch just before Apple's iPhone 8, which, it was recently confirmed, will be released on 12 September.
