Xiaomi has finally announced the launch date of its flagship phone- the Mi Mix 2 in the Indian market. Xiaomi is bringing the Mi Mix 2 to India on October 10. Xiaomi last launched a flagship product in India in March 2016, which was the Xiaomi Mi 5. Apparently, the Mi 5 did not appeal the Indian consumers, which made Xiaomi move out of the flagship segment and concentrate on the budget market.
After conquering the budget market with its Redmi range of products, Xiaomi is now looking to disrupt the flagship market, and that too with its gorgeous smartphone, the Mi Mix 2. Several Xiaomi fans have been waiting for a Xiaomi flagship phone launch in India, and finally, the brand is bringing the Mi Mix 2 into the country.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is by far Xiaomi's best-looking product in the market right now. With its Ceramic back and gorgeous bezel-less display, the Mi Mix 2 appeals the customers. Specifications wise, the Mi Mix 2 flaunts a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2160 × 1080 pixels. This is the same 18:9 display seen in several other flagship products such as Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, LG V30, etc.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, the Mi Mix 2 offers top notch performance. The chipset is paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and has 64GB/128GB storage. The 8GB/128GB storage option is a limited edition variant of the smartphone, which may not make its way to the Indian market.
The Mi Mix 2 boots Xiaomi proprietary MIUI 9 operating system, and the UI is optimised to make full use of the 18:9 display. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has a single 12MP camera at the back, which is the same Sony IMX386 sensor used on the Xiaomi Mi 6. The sensor has an aperture size of f/2.0, dual-tone LED flash, 4-axis OIS, and can record 4K videos.
The Mi Mix 2 comes with a 5MP front-facing camera with 1080p video recording support. A fingerprint sensor is present at the back of the smartphone, and the device weighs 185grams.
The phone has all the necessary connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C port. Lastly, the entire package is backed by a 3400mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support.
The Mi Mix 2 retails at 3299 Yuan (approx. Rs. 32,500) in China. If Xiaomi manages to keep the pricing of the device below Rs. 30,000, it would be a game changer in the Indian market.
