When Xiaomi has announced its first ever bezel-less smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi Mix, they have created a lot of buzz in the smartphone market, but sadly it was more like a prototype and failed to hit the shores for most of us. But this year, Xiaomi has come up with the successor of this beautiful device, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and the best part of this is, it will available for users to buy and use this device, unlike its predecessor.
Xiaomi India has sent out media invites for this upcoming smartphone which is going to be launch in India on October 10. The after the launch of Mi Mix 2 in China last month, Manu Jain, VP and MD of Xiaomi India has told us that Mi Mix 2 will be coming to India very on.
The last flagship smartphone which we have seen from the company was Xiaomi Mi 5, but due to its poor response from users and poor sale, Mi Mix, Mi Note 2, and Mi 6 never made their way to India.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is more beautiful, smaller and faster as well when compared with its predecessor. The main USP of this device is its display, it comes with an almost bezel-less display screen, it has 5.99 inches (18:9 aspect ratio) with the screen resolution of 2160×1080 FHD+ which is smaller than Mi Mix 6.44-inch display.
The company has worked really hard on the design of it, the chin below the display is now 12 percent smaller and now corners are more rounded to make a better grip on it.
Xiaomi has also announced a special edition of Mi Mi 2 which is the world first smartphone to use full unibody ceramic design. This time Xiaomi is using actual tiny speakers which are placed at the top of the display.
Having such a beautiful display comes at the cost of the camera which is placed at the bottom of the front panel and while clicking selfies you have to hold it upside down.
When it comes to the rest of the specs, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which is the flagship processor from the company, it has 6GB of RAM and comes with 64/128/256GB storage options, and there is a special ceramic edition as well which comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
When it comes to the camera, it features a 12MP rear snapper along with dual LED flash, and there is 5MP front facing camera as well for video calling and selfies.
For connectivity, it supports LTE, VoLTE, dual SIM, USB Type-C, GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth, and when it comes to software front, it runs on Android 7 which wrapped MIUI 9.
It will be interesting to see what pricing model Xiaomi India is going to adopt here, we expect company to price this smartphone somewhere around 30K to 35K INR.
