Now Mi MIX 2 has been spotted on benchmarking site Geekbench. The benchmarks can confirm that the Mi MIX 2 will be coming in with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that is mated with a big 6GB RAM, but don't be surprised if another 8GB RAM variant also shows up. It will come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS with MIUI 9 skin on top. The Chinese smartphone company is expected to unveil Mi MIX 2 around the same time-frame this year. The smartphone has been the subject of talk via various leaks and rumours in the past. The same chipset powers leading devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+, Xiaomi Mi 6 or OnePlus 5.
It is unclear as of now whether the device codenamed "Chiron" will come out in public as Redmi Note 3 or Mi MIX 2, considering the rest of the specifications, which include 12-megapixel dual rear camera, 8-megapixel front-facing camera, Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6-inch display with a resolution of 2160x1080 pixels, and two RAM and storage variants - 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB.

They were originally suspected of plotting an attack similar to the November 2015 carnage in Paris that left 130 people dead. Belgian authorities say at least one man is on the run a day after police arrested two suspected militants.
Besides the Geekbench listing, the Mi Mix 2 was leaked earlier as well. Gearbest also listed the phone with 4GB/6GB and 8GB RAM configurations. Similar to its predecessor, the Mi Mix 2 will boast acoustic earphone technology, which basically eliminates the need for an earpiece.
The Mi MIX was released in November 2016 and if this timeline is to be maintained, we only have about four months before the Mi MIX 2 shows up. There's another variant with 6GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage called the "Pro" variant. It has USB Type-C port and Fingerprint sensor which is placed at the back of the device.
The phone essentially uses an ultrasonic proximity sensor through the display.
