Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8, S8 vs LG V30 vs Essential Phone: "bezel-less" size comparison

Xiaomi, a company that is big in China, but has no official presence in the United States (and very little in Europe), has launched its best phone yet: the bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
The Mi Mix 2 is the successor of what’s arguably the first bezel-less phone: last year’s gigantic, 6.44-inch Mi Mix.
The original Mi Mix was deemed a “concept phone” and sold in limited quantities, and it never really proved all that practical, not least because of its huge size. The new Mi Mix 2, however, has taken some valuable lessons …


Xiaomi Mi Note 3

The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 chip, 6 GB of RAM, 64/128 GB of storage and a 12-megapixel dual camera. On the front there is a 16-megapixel selfie unit and a fingerprint reader.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 specs comparison versus the Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30

Xiaomi just unveiled another bezel-less monster to succeed its last-year Mi MIX, which was one of the first phones to kick-start the design trend. Although that one was mostly a proof of concept, the second-gen Mi Mix appears to be much-more fleshed out consumer product. Retaining the same old bezel-busting aesthetics and doubling down with some serious hardware under the hood, the Mi MIX 2 would likely give any other phone out there a serious run for the money.

Yet, there’s always the availability issue with Xiaomi’s phones, which are still a fata morgana …

See the official camera samples from the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and Mi Note 3

Xiaomi’s new Mi Mix 2 and Mi Note 3 smartphones just broke cover. In terms of looks, the two handsets are worlds apart, but they do share some similarities in the specs department.
For example, both devices rely on image sensors which can be found on the Xiaomi Mi 6 – the Mi Note 3 borrows the full 12MP + 12MP dual-camera combo, while the Mi Mix 2 only features a single 12MP camera at the back. 
The Chinese company did share a bunch of official photo samples taken from the two handsets, so …

We’ve had our fair
share of leaks related to Xiaomi’s forthcoming Mi MIX 2, so one more
wouldn’t hurt, especially that we’re less than a day ahead of its

Meet the Xiaomi Mi A1: an affordable mid-ranger with stock Android and fancy dual camera

A few days ago, we reported that Xiaomi is planning to announce an entirely new lineup of phones on September 5. Based on the teasers released at the time, our guess was that the Chinese manufacturer planned to introduce the next Android One phone, a fruit of its collaboration with Google. 

This has indeed happened, as today, the company unveiled its new Mi A1 model during an event in New Delhi, India. At a first glance, Xiaomi seems to have made the A1 specifically for this particular South Asian market, but the phone maker actually plans to introduce …

New Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 leak offers a closer look at the phone's display

We’re just one week away from the official reveal of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, another mildly interesting flagship smartphone making its debut in the second half of the year. The device is supposed to be unveiled on September 11, one day ahead of Apple’s big launch event.

However, the Mi Mix 2 is more important to the Asian market, as Xiaomi is unlikely to launch the phablet outside China and, maybe, India. Nevertheless, since it’s one of those devices that benefits from the “wow” factor, the Mi Mix 2 will probably sell very well even outside China through unofficial …
