  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC;
  • 6GB RAM / 128 GB Internal Memory
  • 18:9 screen, 5.99 Inch Display
  • Hidden Speaker & Proximity Sensor
  • Sony IMX386 ISP, 1.25um Large Pixel
  • 4-Axis OIS
  • 4-sided curved ceramic body
  • 7-series Aluminum Alloy Frame
  • Support Global LTE Bands, 6 modes, 43 bands



Here We Go, See below for the tear down Pictures


Turn off the device


Remove the back cover by using suction cup

Open the back panel with separating stickers

The fingerprint sensor connected to the motherboard using cable

Unlock the 0 screws that are holding the protective panel


Bar indicates that protection is not the only function of this panel. It attached to the flash and contacted to the telephone module. Also, the panel performs an antenna function.

After disconnecting the fingerprint scanner, you can remove the back ceramic panel


  • MIX2 back cover
  • Ceramic material back cover, work is very sophisticated
  • NFC antenna & fingerprint module integrated into the back cover
  • The back cover is also affixed with a thermal sticker, which is fixed by stickers and buckles with the middle frame


  • Three-stage design
  • Motherboard – Battery – Subplate
  • Overall look is very neat, no clutter cable


disconnect the motherboard wiring cable, remove a motherboard fixing screw



  • MIX2 motherboard
  • The motherboard is dark brown and the surface covers the metal shield



Unscrew the 7 screws holding the speaker and the sound panel

remove the sound cavity, there is a radio frequency coaxial line in the sound cavity

  • MIX2 sound cavity
  • The radio field is printed with radio frequency antenna


disconnect the motherboard on the motherboard wiring cable and breathing light cable

remove the sub-board

Type-C interface integrated into the sub-board

The battery can easily be removed if it is hooked up

Battery capacity is 3300 mAh battery manufactured by SCUD (Fujian) Electronics

The Mi Mix 2 screen is fixed to a frame that, unlike the first generation, is made of metal. This greatly facilitates production while reducing its cost. In general, the shell is more rounded easily holds in hand, although the frame is slightly wider than the original Mi Mix

Components and motherboard layout


Components include SoC Snapdragon 835, 6 GB RAM, 64/128/256 GB ROM type UFS 2.1. At the moment, this is the top configuration for the Android device. PM8998 and PMI8998 controllers for power management and the SMB1381 chip, which is Qualcomm's high-end solution for 9V 2A fast charging.The WCN3990 chip supports Wi-Fi 2 * 2MU-MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0 and other technologies. The phone supports all existing 4G frequencies, in order to stay in touch all over the world

Conclusions:
  • The ceramic rear panel is very sturdy
  • The NFC module and antenna of the radio module are integrated into the back panel, and the antenna design is somewhat complex
  • Thanks to the three-level design of the internal components, it will be easier to repair them
  • The metal frame, and the screen mount have an integrated design. There are 4 carcass cutouts - cutouts under antenna strips and a welding seam
  • The main camera has the same module as the Mi6 and supports optical stabilization. The front camera is located below and very small.
  • The processor mounting location is covered by many layers of the thermoplastics, heat dissipates along the entire surface of the frame
  • Placing a fingerprint sensor may not appeal to some users
  • The use of ordinary spoken dynamics solves one of the main problems of the past generation and now the quality of sound during the conversation has become better.
