Xiaomi is planning to reduce the bezels even further with the Mi Mix 2. As pointed out by a Fone Arena report, Philippe Starck who designed the Mi Mix will also be designing its second-generation variant, Xiaomi has confirmed.

Going by a Facebook video post by the designer, the Mi Mix 2 will almost be bezel-free, with thin lines on three sides and a slightly bulkier bezel at the bottom.

The Mi Mix 2 is rumoured to have a 93 percent screen-to-body ratio which is higher than Mi Mix’s 91.3 percent.
