Xiaomi's Mi Mix might soon come in new variants

Whispers in the wind swirl of a new size and colour

So much for being just a concept phone: Xiaomi apparently has more plans for its Mi Mix.

The latest leaks indicate that the company might just have a new colour for the Xiaomi as well as a smaller variant, which we bet will be very much in demand.

A brighter option

What is this new colour variant? Well, apparently it is a white ceramic version and it will certainly appeal to those who didn't find the black version all that appealing. Specs-wise, it's uncertain whether Xiaomi will maintain the exact same specs - Snapdragon 821, 4/6GB RAM and 128/256GB storage or make the white variant a higher-end exclusive.

Making the white an exclusive would be similar to Apple's making the Jet Black colour available only on models with higher storage. Making it a more exclusive option might appeal to those who already covet the phone for its concept phone status as well as the startling bezel-less display.

Apart from the leaked pictures of a white Mi Mix, there's also rumours that Xiaomi is also working on a smaller version of the Mi Mix, a more pocket-friendly 5.5in model.

With ceramic still being expensive enough that manufacturing many units of the Mi Mix might not be an attainable goal, perhaps if the phone was smaller it would be easier to make in larger quantities. Still, with Xiaomi looking to capitalise on the reception of the Mi Mix which has pretty much stolen the thunder from most other smartphones this year, 2017 might just be the year of the bezel-less phone.
