Xiaomi to launch 'Mi MIX 2' in India today

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is already being offered at a discounted price

The company has launched Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 in India.

The main highlight of the Mi MIX 2 is its 5.9-inch display, which has been made to fit in a 5.5-inch body. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and has a 12MP Sony IMX386 rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture. General availability will commence in the first week of November at Flipkart, Mi Home stores and Xiaomi's offline partners. Its 6GB RAM and 128GB internal memory Mi mix 2 models cost 3,599 yuan (about 35,000 rupees). The company had unveiled the Mi MIX 2 in China alongside the Mi Note 3 in the previous month. How does it fare compared to bezel-less phones from the likes of LG and Samsung? It technically doesn't have any bezels around the top and sides leaving only a prominent bezel at the bottom. You need to flip the phone upside down to take a selfie and adjust similarly to make a video call.

Xiaomi's confidence with the Mi Mix 2 stems from a few reasons.

The 5.99-inch screen of the Mi MIX 2 has a 17:9 aspect ratio seeming to more or less fill up the entire body of the phone on the front. The phone is equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chip and you can fill in the corresponding top-end specs yourself for the rest of the hardware yourself, for such a phone.

What started by the original Mi Mix quickly gained momentum and filled the smartphone market with a myriad of bezel-less smartphones. It will be upgraded to Android 8 Oreo.

Back in March 2016, Xiaomi launched Mi 5 flagship smartphone in India. Like all Xiaomi's flagships, it does not support expandable storage. The smartphone also has scratch-resistant feature and in China it was launched in three variants - 54, 128 and 256 Gb.




The launch event is expected to kick off at 12 pm IST.

Further, the smartphone also consists of face recognition technology. Full-Vision displays aren't new but Xiaomi's approach is unique. Connectivity options on the Mi MIX 2 smartphone include 4G VoLTE, dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11c, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C.

The display beautifully blends with the device giving the phone an overall black look.
The mobile runs on a 3400mAh battery. A massive battery of 3,080mAh comes with the device, which is charged quite faster. There was no mention of any other variants at the launch event. The handset was announced in first week of September and is now available in a number of markets all around Europe.

This is Xiaomi's latest premium flagship handset launch in the country since the Xiaomi Mi 5, which happened nearly two years back. But over the last two years, Xiaomi has become a budget-friendly company. Mi MIX 2 offers top notch specifications.

The new launch from Xiaomi will compete with One Plus 5 which is also priced at around the same price.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX will be sold exclusively on Flipkart, and the company's own website Mi.com.
