If latest reports are to be believed, the white variant of the Xiaomi Mi Mix could be unveiled at the Consumers Electronics Show (CES) 2017. A recent teaser by the mobile maker has hinted at that. The Xiaomi Mi Mix white variant first leaked in November 2016. Those who are not aware, the Mi Mix is currently available only in black colour. The teaser image shows a jumbled word that is a combination of the words “black” and “white.”

Even though the teaser did not mention anything explicitly about the white variant, it does mention CES 2017.

“Just 4 days to our 2017 CES Mi Product Launch, it's going to be an exciting Mix of tech breakthroughs! What do you think we'll be announcing?” read Mi’s Facebook post.
