Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 may have a new, better earpiece

Peter, 25 April 2017

The Mi Mix stunned us with its nonexistent bezels, but the earpiece did not provide great sound quality. Things may change for the Mi Mix 2 as Xiaomi is reportedly looking to completely replace that component. The issue arose because the original Mix did not have a traditional earpiece, there was no place to put it. Instead it used a piezoelectric ceramic speaker that vibrated the whole phone.

The Mix 2 will not have a traditional earpiece either, but a new speaker may be developed in a collaboration between Xiaomi and AAC Technologies. AAC has experience building tiny speakers and vibrators for haptics, so it is not new to the smartphone world.

Can the Mi Mix 2 deliver better sound quality in calls? The analyst that reported on this mentioned that the new speaker will stick closer to a 3GPP standard, likely referring to HD voice.

We also hear that Xiaomi is looking to moving to an AMOLED display, a new Snapdragon 835 chipset and an updated camera.
