As spotted by playfuldroid, the white variant of the Mi MIX sports Ceramic body as the black color variant of the smartphone.

Xiaomi being the trendsetter for bezel-less display phones, it seems that other brands are also willing to try their luck in this segment. Recently we have come across rumors that Meizu will be launching a smartphone that will compete with the Mi MIX. The image of the Meizu bezel-less phone on Weibo shows a smartphone with a high screen to body ratio. And if the leaked images are to be believed, the Meizu phone will have an even higher screen to body ratio than the Xiaomi Mi MIX. Few leaked teasers in the past suggest that Meizu’s bezel-less smartphone could launch on December 24, 2016.
Other than Xiaomi and Meizi, ZTE’s sub-brand nubia is also rumored to unveil a new smartphone with a “bezel-less” display in India soon.
Meanwhile, leaked images of the what is said to be the smaller variant of the Mi MIX recently surfaced online. Codenamed Xiaomi Mi MIX Mini, the smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon 821 processor along with 4GB of RAM. It will come with 64GB of onboard storage. It might come with a smaller 5.5-inch display as compared to Mi MIX’s 6.4-inch display. Except for these, there aren’t more details about the smartphone at the moment.
