Images of Xiaomi’s upcoming phone has been spotted on the Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo. As reported by GSMArena, the phone could be the Mi Mix 2S. Going by the images, it features a prominent screen and very thin bezels like the existing Mi Mix 2. However, it now flaunts an iPhone X-style notch at the top.
It is a mystery why Xiaomi wants to spoil the Mi Mix 2’s perfect screen with a notch. Maybe, the Chinese company wants to move the front-facing camera to the top. The selfie-camera is placed below the screen on the Mi Mix 2 to get rid of the top bezels.
Early iPhone X buyers are already complaining how the notch is distracting while watching movies. Moreover, the only other Android phone with such display cutout, the Essential Phone, haven’t received much love from consumers. The notch simply cuts the content unless developers have added special support for it.
