Xiaomi is still notch-less: Official Mi Mix 2s images confirm 27 March launch date, and the fact that there's no notch

It's hard to believe that it's only been a few months since Apple's notch-tooting iPhone X emerged in the smartphone world. Anyone who's anything in the Android smartphone world has gone out of their way to copy the design, and it's now almost a style-statement of sorts to not have a notch on your smartphone.

Look ma, no notch!

One very popular smartphone maker who's kept away from all this notchiness is Xiaomi. 

We were expecting to see their first notch on the nearly bezel-less Mi Mix 2s but now, Xiaomi has officially laid those rumours to rest. 

GizmoChina cites a Weibo reveal that shows a notch-less Mi Mix 2s. Invites for a launch event in Shanghai have already been sent out. The yet-to-be-launched smartphone was shown off by Xiaomi brand ambassadoer Wu Yifan, who's seen flaunting the phone in several social promotional images. 

While it is good that the phone lacks a notch, the design also suggests that the front camera remains at the bottom of the phone. Up-the-nose selfies and upside-down videos will still be an issue with the Mi Mix 2s.

The phone is expected to arrive with Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 845 chip and dual-rear cameras. As GizmoChina notes, it's possible that we'll see an 8/256 GB variant of the smartphone and support for wireless charging. 

To commemorate the fact that the Mi Mix ended up in the Centre Pompidou museum in France, a museum for modern art, 10 lucky Xiaomi fans will receive Beijing-Paris tickets and a trip to the Centre Pompidou.
