The Xiaomi Mi Mix is only four months old but the company has already confirmed that they are working on the sequel of the phone. Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun has revealed on a Weibo post that the company is working on a new version of the phone. According to the post, the company will once again be working with french designer Philippe Starck to create the new version of the Xiaomi Mi Mix. In the post, the founder and CEO also mentions that Starck has already thought about a few ideas and now they are working to create it.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix, released in China on November 4, was one of the most impressive phones of 2016 with its bezel-less display. The phone was unveiled back in October and the company recently announced a white version at CES.
The phone has been a record setting release for the company as its first two flash sales were over in 10 and 30 seconds. The first flash sale for the white version of the Mi Mix was over in less than a minute. Xiaomi is only making 10,000 units each month, which makes it a little difficult for people in China to get this phone. A second sale for the white version of the Mi Mix was announced for February 14. The company has not announced how that sale went but the past three flash sales of the Xiaomi Mi Mix have all been over in less than a minute.
The company did not give major details on the sequel of the phone but it’s rumored that the new Mi Mix could bring a thinner bezel. The current Xiaomi Mi Mix has a 6.4-inch display with a 91.3 percent screen to body ratio. The Xiaomi Mi Mix with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage currently starts at around $510 while the premium version with 256GB of storage costs around $590.
Last month, it was reported that a Xiaomi spokesperson had confirmed that the company would skip this month’s MWC. The company will reportedly skip the event entirely, so there won’t be any new phones announced by the company there.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix successor is rumored to be making its debut later this year. There aren’t much rumors about the phone but now it has been confirmed that we will see a new version in the future.
