Xiaomi CEO says Mi Mix 2 has entered mass production, shares retail box photos
The CEO of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, has been posting teasers about the Mi Mix 2, sometimes even from the Mix 2 itself. Yesterday, he shared that the phone has entered mass production and today he even posted a few shots of the retail packaging.
Here are the beginnings of the promo campaign – the schtick is that the phone is nearly invisible when you turn on the camera, because the bezels are barely there.
And here are some more official teasers:
Jun also shared the story behind the 17:9 screen of the original Mi Mix. There was a six month dialog with Google since the company prefers a 16:9 screen on Android phones to improve compatibility. Eventually, Google agreed to implement support for the wider aspect ratio and the rounded corners. In a way, the Mix paved the way for LG’s G6 and V30 and Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Note8.
