The screen is once again the great attraction
Without a doubt, the most striking thing about the Xiaomi Mi MIX was its huge screen, with hardly any frames and as it could not be in this second version of the Chinese manufacturer's smartphone, the screen is once again the great attraction. The 5.99-inch screen has IPS technology and occupies almost the entire front, reducing the frames with respect to the first version and making the total size of the device smaller than that of its predecessor.
In addition, now the corners have a much more pronounced curvature that gives it a more fluid and comfortable image, also giving a feeling of greater resistance to, for example, a fall or a blow.
The camera, without being double, will have a lot to say
One of the most striking things about this new Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is that its camera is not double, following the trend of the majority of so-called high-end terminals that reach the market. This in principle is a clear disadvantage, but the main camera has such quality that we fear that it will have a lot to say.
As confirmed by the Chinese manufacturer, the rear camera mounts a 386 megapixel Sony IMX 12 sensor with optical stabilization and a pixel size of 1.25 µm. Everything indicates, although at the moment it is not confirmed that the camera of this Mi MIX 2 is the same that we could already see and enjoy in the Xiaomi Mi6.
