Soon after Xiaomi launched its near bezel-less Mi MIX 2 smartphone in China, Manu Kumar Jain, MD of Xiaomi India, confirmed that the smartphone will be launched soon in India as well. While Jain didn’t share the exact release date for the handset at the time, he has now announced that Mi MIX 2 will be launched in India on October 10. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 launch will take place in New Delhi on October 10, as per the launch teaser shared by the company.

In his announcement tweet on Wednesday, Manu Kumar Jain said, “The wait is over.. #MiMIX2 is coming to India! Come Oct 10 and hail the Mi MIX 2.” It is good to see that Xiaomi has finally decided to bring its premium bezel-less smartphone to India after the original Mi MIX was never launched in the country.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 was launched by the company with a variant called Mi MIX 2 Special Edition. Notably, there are three variants of the Mi MIX 2 smartphone’s standard non-special edition. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 was priced in China at CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 32,300) for its 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant, CNY 3,599 (roughly Rs. 35,300) for the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant, and CNY 3,999 (roughly Rs. 39,200) for the 6GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant.

If we talk about the special edition variant, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Special Edition, has been priced at priced at CNY 4,699 (roughly Rs. 46,000). The special edition variant comes with an all-ceramic body, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Just like the last time, the announcement contains the name of Mi MIX 2 only, which makes it unclear if Xiaomi will launch Mi MIX 2 Special Edition in India as well.

Moving to the specifications, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 sports a 5.99-inch full-HD (1080×2160 pixels) 18:9 display with a pixel density of 403ppi and a DCI-P3 colour gamut.
