Up front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with the Beautify mode, 1080p video calling feature and a selfie countdown feature.

As the Mi MIX 2 has zero bezels on the top, the front camera, as well as other sensors and the speakers have been repositioned. For enhanced acoustics, the speaker is placed at the top edge of the phone. The high-power speaker is sound guided and uses cantilever peizoelectric ceramic acoustic technology. It basically means the sound resonates through the metal frame, and is delivered through the screen. The proximity sensor is also placed alongside the speaker for a seamless display experience.
