We’ve been talking about beveled designs since Xiaomi launched its flagship device, the Xiaomi Mi MIX. It was released in late 2016, but it remains one of the most interesting options on the market, along with other devices that have come out, such as the Galaxy S8 or LG G6. Undoubtedly, this year we are seeing a clear trend in the designs and has to do with the screens. When we thought that we could not innovate more, we see how the companies get a new design of the sleeve. Today, it is about talking about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 screen, a device that has been rumored for several weeks.
Yesterday we talked about the Xiaomi Mi X1, a name that has leaked from China and let us know a new project of the company. At the moment you can not know much about this device, although some analysts point out that it will be the replacement of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2. There are still a few months to officially know the device without bevels that will launch Xiaomi, but already starting to come very interesting rumors.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 screen could be 18: 9
With the arrival of mobile phones without bevels, several technologies have appeared that we did not have before, such as the Xiaomi headset that is capable of using vibrations, or new screens 18: 9. The first company to implement one of these screens was LG. Samsung followed with the launch of the Galaxy S8, where we saw that it went a little further and got an 18.5: 9 screen. This is summed up in a narrower but higher screen, making it easier to use with one hand.
Now, all rumors point to the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 could have one of these screens. Although not just beveled, the Xiaomi Mi MIX is a large device, which packs a screen of 6.4 inches. Xiaomi may want to reduce the impact of these 6.4 inches in the hand of users, offering a device with the same diagonal but narrower.
This can only be achieved by offering an 18: 9 screen, something that is working very well for LG and Samsung. As we have said, at the moment they are only rumors, but we can see how the Xiaomi Mi MIX is gradually gaining strength.
