The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 was launched in India back in October, and was made available in its first sale the same month. The smartphone was launched in a single variant in India, featuring 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, priced at Rs. 35,999. The new price represents a price cut of Rs. 3,000, making it a much more attractive option compared to the OnePlus 5T and Nokia 8, its primary competitors at that price point.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 runs MIUI 9 based on Android 7.0 Nougat. It sports a 5.99-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) LCD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC that’s coupled with 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The dual-SIM (Nano-SIM) smartphone sports a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 rear camera sensor with 1.25-micron pixels, 4-axis optical image stabilisation, 5-piece lens, an f/2.0 aperture, as well as a facial recognition feature. On the front, it bears a 5-megapixel front camera, also with the facial recognition function that can be used to unlock the smartphone.
As for storage, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 variant launched in India bears 128GB of storage that is not expandable. Connectivity options on the Mi MIX 2 smartphone include 4G (support for 43 LTE bands), VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11c, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C. Sensors on board include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, digital compass, gyroscope, and ultrasonic proximity sensor. The smartphone runs on a 3400mAh battery, measures 151.8×75.5×7.7mm, and weighs 185 grams.
The company says the Mi MIX 2’s display has a pixel density of 403ppi, and is complete with DCI-P3 colour gamut support. The smartphone has minimal bezels on three sides, with only a ‘bottom chin’ that sports the front camera and other sensors.
With no top bezel to house the earpiece, the company has decided to use a ‘hidden sound-guided speaker’ that resonates sound through the display and frame. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 bears a ceramic body with a 7-Series aluminium frame and an 18K gold plated camera ring on the rear panel.
