The 2017 Android flagship wars are starting to heat up. Just yesterday, we gave you a hands-on preview of LG’s all-new V30 flagship which features a 6-inch nearly bezel-free OLED display, an excellent dual camera system and Snapdragon 835 power. Now, Xiaomi is looking to muscle through with the successor to its revolutionary Mi Mix. The aptly named Mi Mix 2 is set to arrive on September 11th and will be powered by the [currently unannounced] Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 processor. As is the case with the current crop of Android flagships and its predecessor, the Mi Mix 2 comes with minimal bezels surrounding its 6.2-inch display (which is down from 6.4 inches). Display resolution jumps to 2960x1440,... Read more...
Chinese OEM Xiaomi regularly makes headlines for its feature-packed smartphones that battle the competition with oftentimes bargain basement pricing. It’s also hard not to look at devices like the Mi MIX and not be impressed by its innovative and bezel-less design.

Don't tell Xiaomi that smartphones must have bezels. If you do, the Chinese phone maker will respond, "Bezels? We ain't got not bezels? We don't need no bezels! I don't have to show you no stinkin' bezels!" For you young folk, that's a reference to a famous quote from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, but back to the point, Xiaomi's Mi Mix smartphone is a bezel-free handset with a killer spec sheet. The interesting thing here is that the Mi Mix looks like a concept device and is even called a concept phone by Xiaomi, yet it has a release date that's just around the corner (November 4 in China) and a price tag (¥3,499, or about $516 in U.S. currency). By all means, it looks as though XIaomi is... Read more...
