Xiaomi today announced the Mi Mix 2, its second-generation showcase handset with a bezel-less design and ceramic chassis. This year's phone dials back the size a bit. The screen drops from 6.44 inches at a 17:9 aspect ratio to 5.99 inches at an 18.9 aspect ratio. The company also reduced the size of the chin bezel by close to 12%. The result is a slimmer, shorter, handset that is easier to manage day in and day out. It is built on an aluminum frame and wrapped ceramic with 18K gold accents. The phone boasts top specs. It is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor with either 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM, and up to 256 GB of storage. Importantly, the phone steps up its LTE game with support for six modes of LTE operation and 43 different LTE bands — including those used by carriers in the U.S. (The original Mi Mix did no support U.S. LTE bands at all.) The Mi Mix 2 adopts a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 camera sensor with four-axis optical image stabilization and phase detection autofocus. The front-facing camera has a 5-megapixel sensor and comes with 36 self-beautification profiles. The phone packs a 3,400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 and USB-C charging. Other features include Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and WiFi. The cost is about $500 and the phone will go on sale in China starting September 15. Xiaomi did not announce plans to sell the phone in the U.S.
