In fact, Mi Mix 2 will also get the upper hand on Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 because according to leaks it won't feature a truly bezel-less display. The video is labeled "Mi Mix 2 Conceptual Product Design WIP", with those last three letters standing for "work in progress". In fact, it's the latter that was very close to achieving this, but you still get a significant bezel just below the screen. While in June this year, Starck was again called by the company to discuss the Mi Mix's successor.
The up-and-coming Chinese OEM is predictably gunning for an even higher screen-to-body ratio as everyone from Apple to Huawei wants to throw their hat in the bezel-killing ring.
A French designer named Phillippe Starck happened to post a teaser video on his Facebook page revealing the supposed design of Xiaomi's Mi Mix 2 and it goes beyond what we expected. The phone carries nearly no bezel on the top, and a very small bezel on the bottom which contains the front camera.More news: Grieving Uber boss 'driven out by investor'

While the Mi Mix can lay no substantial claim to being the first device to offer an edge-to-edge display, few would argue that it was the first to do it overtly. Moving on, there is no presence of a physical Home button or a fingerprint scanner.
The Mi Mix 2 has gotten leaked on two fronts, one via Weibo and the other via Philippe Starck.
Mi Mix 2 looks completely outstanding and it will certainly overshadow Samsung's flagship Galaxy S8. From the video, we can see the USB Type-C port along with speaker grill on the bottom edge. With all these specifications, the Mi MIX 2 might come powered by a 4,500mAh battery.
