Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 India Launch Today

mi-mix-2-india-today

Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi MIX 2 bezel-less display smartphone in India on Tuesday, October 10. Just ahead of the New Delhi launch event, which kicks off at 11:30am IST, Flipkart has revealed that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will be exclusively available on its platform in India. To recall, the Mi MIX 2 was launched in China last month alongside the Xiaomi Mi Note 3. So far, there’s no indication that the latter phone will make its way to India as well. Notably, the Mi MIX 2 India launch will be the first premium smartphone the Chinese firm has brought to India since the Xiaomi Mi 5 back in March last year.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 price
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 was unveiled in three RAM and storage variants – 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage at CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 32,300), 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage at CNY 3,599 (roughly Rs. 35,300), and 6GB RAM/ 256GB storage at CNY 3,999 (roughly Rs. 39,200). The company had also unveiled the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Special Edition 8GB of RAM, 128GB storage, and a full ceramic body, at CNY 4,699 (roughly Rs. 46,000). However, this last model is unlikely to be launched in India, at least on Tuesday – as it has yet to go on sale in China, where it will be made available to buy in November.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 features
As for the features, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2’s biggest highlight is of course its bezel-less display. It sports a 5.99-inch full-HD (1080×2160 pixels, 18:9 aspect ratio) LCD display with a pixel density of 403ppi and support for DCI-P3 colour gamut. There is no ‘upper lip’ above the display, and the front camera has been relegated to the ‘bottom lip’, a design decision that Xiaomi had used with the last Mi MIX as well. The smartphone is lighter, smaller, and thinner than its predecessor. Featuring a ceramic body, the smartphone has frame built out of 7-Series aluminium apart from an 18K gold plated camera ring. Another major highlight is ‘hidden sound-guided speaker’ that resonates sound through the display and frame, completely hiding the speaker itself. Finally, the company is also touting facial recognition technology for unlocking the smartphone.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 specifications
Apart from the display, which we have already detailed, the regular edition of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 specifications include dual-SIM support (Nano-SIM), a Snapdragon 660 SoC, 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM, dual rear camera setup (two 12-megapixel sensors, one with an f/1.8 wide-angle lens and the other with an f/2.6 telephoto lens, offering 4-axis OIS), a 16-megapixel front camera with 2-micron pixels, up to 128GB of inbuilt storage that isn’t expandable via microSD card, and a 3500mAh battery. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11c, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C. Sensors on board include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, gyroscope, infrared sensor, and proximity sensor. It measures 152.6×73.95×7.6mm and weighs 163 grams.
