With virtually every Chinese smartphone maker releasing an iPhone X inspired “notch” display smartphone, you’ll be pleased to know that Xiaomi isn’t following the same trend, just yet. For their upcoming Mi MIX 2S, it was earlier speculated that Xiaomi could add a notch at the top of its bezel-less phone while others have indicated that it might settle for a corner notch design just to house its front camera.
Xiaomi’s bezel-less smartphone, the MI MIX 2 is getting a major update for 2018. The new Mi MIX 2S will run on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and it looks like it will get a major upgrade in the camera department.
Mobile World Congress is kicking off this week and you can expect smartphone launches happening back to back. Xiaomi wants to make headlines as well and they will be introducing a new smartphone in the next few days. They have just posted a teaser for their upcoming device with a random 6-digit number. What could this be?
The Mi MIX 2 is an interesting flagship from Xiaomi as it comes with a “bezel-less” display and a nice ceramic back. If you prefer something more exclusive with better specs, Xiaomi Malaysia has just announced the arrival of its Mi MIX 2 Special Edition. Not only it has more RAM and double the storage, the Special Edition comes in white.

The iPhone X may not be the first “Full Screen” smartphone but it’s the first iPhone to come without a home button (not even a virtual one). Because of this new change, Apple had introduced a couple of gestures which are easy to adapt by existing iOS users. Apparently, this seems to be so effective that the folks at Xiaomi’s MIUI development team are incorporating some of these gestures on their upcoming MIUI 9 update.
If you thought Xiaomi Malaysia wasn’t going to have some kind of sale for Single’s Day, you’re wrong because the company slashing some pretty big numbers off their popular products.

The all-screen and almost bezel-less Mi MIX 2 is now available in Malaysia. This is the successor of the original Xiaomi Mi MIX and it’s more practical now thanks to its smaller 5.99″ display with an 18:9 display aspect ratio.
There’s no denying that Xiaomi‘s original attempt at the “bezel-less” smartphone, 2016’s Mi MIX, was an impractical device. It was big, thanks to the large screen and not so slim 17:9 aspect ratio, heavy, and a little too slippery because its innards were encased in a polished ceramic shell.
But I loved the crap out of that smartphone. It was fascinating, edgy and a big middle finger to the already established cookie cutter smartphone look. Needless to say, I was really excited for the new Mi MIX 2 because I was hoping Xiaomi would make it more bonkers than ever.
But they went ahead and did exactly the opposite.
Xiaomi surprised the world a year ago when it first unveiled its bezel-less concept smartphone, the Mi MIX. For 2017, more smartphone makers are following this trend as seen on the current Galaxy S8, Essential Phone, LG V30 and the vivo V7+.
To step up its game, Xiaomi has unveiled its latest successor that comes with its Full Screen 2.0 display.
