Mi Mix is a big deal for the Chinese company as it turned Xiaomi from a follower to a leader role.
Now Lei Jun, head of Xiaomi has stated that they are working on a new Mi Mix 2 smartphone and would also be ramping up the production of current Mi Mix.

The Future is Bezel less.
In-Display Fingerprint Scanner Smartphone
The other big news is that it will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The in-display fingerprint scanner is a new technology developed by company called Goodix as reported by Gizmo China.
The basic principle for the in-display fingerprint sensor is that a small part of the screen can be set as a fingerprint reader. When the user press that portion of the display it acts like a fingerprint scanner.
There was a fingerprint reader placed at the back of the device which will now be replaced with new in-display fingerprint scanner. It is also rumored that upcoming iPhone 7s or iPhone 8 will come with a similar in-display fingerprint scanner.
Similar to the Mi Mix the successor also has The earpiece replaced with Cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic technology allowing you to listen to calls without the earpiece.
The Ultrasonic proximity sensor hidden behind the display replaces the conventional infra-red proximity sensor on most smartphones.
The front camera is most likely to be placed at the bottom side with a small size lens.
The Mi Mix can come with top of the line specs powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.45 GHz and Adreno 540 GPU.
There are possibilities of having a 256 GB / 128 GB version with 8 GB of Ram and a 128 GB / 64 GB version with 6 GB of Ram.
The Mi Mix was launched in October 2016 and we can expect around 6 more months before there is an actual release but it will most likely get launched ahead of iPhone 7s or 8 launch.
