Xiaomi had announced the Mi Mix 2 in China last month and had also hinted at an upcoming India launch. Today Xiaomi has launched the Mi Mix 2 at an event in India, and the device will be exclusively available on Flipkart starting later this month. Priced at Rs 35,999 the Mi Mix 2 goes loggerheads with the OnePlus 5.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 comes equipped with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display, and the device now offers 18:9 aspect ratio as opposed to the 17:7 offered by the Mi Mix. On a related note the 18:9 aspect ration has now become quite popular with Samsung, LG and other OEM’s using it on their smartphones. In all likelihood, the new aspect ratio might also help achieve better ergonomics. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is powered by Snapdragon 835 paired with 6GB of RAM. Xiaomi is offering the top of line 128GB internal storage.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 runs on Android 7.1 flavored with the MIUI 9. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the rear, and the Mi Mix comes with a Type-C port. Xiaomi claims that the fingerprint is the fastest in the industry. The design has been the forte of the Mi Mix, and the Mix 2 is no different. The front chin of the phone is apparently 12-percent smaller and the device sports a sound guided speaker and Ultrasonic proximity sensor. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is made out of four-sided curved ceramic body built on a Series-7 aluminum alloy frame.
On the audio front, Xiaomi has improved the cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic technology and has also included a 50mW power speaker along with a guiding tube. As far as the camera is concerned, Mi Mix 2 comes equipped with a 12-Megapixel Sony IMX386 sensor primary camera that is capable of 4K video recording and is accompanied by a dual-LED flash. Furthermore, the camera also offers 4-axis optical stabilization.
All the MIUI 9 features like the active noise cancellation, GPS, and the GLONASS support will also make it to the device. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 comes with Global LTE and will support six modes and 43 bands. As far as pricing and specification are concerned the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will rival other flagships like the OnePlus 5. Interestingly, Xiaomi has announced a 0% interest EMI scheme for the Mi Mix 2 in India. There will be a preview sale on 17th October exclusively on Flipkart. And starting November, the phone will be sold across Flipkart, Mi.com and offline stores as well.
