Posted October 11, 2017

The device features a 5.99-inch bezel-less display or what Xiaomi calls it Full-screen display 2.0 with an aspect ratio of 18:9. It has a pixel density of 570 ppi, and features a complete DCI-P3 colour gamut support.

When it comes to other Mi MIX 2 specifications, the phone features the Snapdragon 835 SoC clocked at up to 2.45GHz.

What started by the original Mi Mix quickly gained momentum and filled the smartphone market with a myriad of bezel-less smartphones. There is 6GB of RAM with 128GB and runs on Android 7.0 MIUI 9 on top. If you recall, Xiaomi's last offering, the Mi A1, measured 7.3mm. It will be upgraded to Android 8 Oreo. This means you will not be able to use your regular pair of headphones with the Mi Mix 2 without an adapter - which Xiaomi does ship with the phone. Just like its predecessor, the phone is missing support for expandable storage. But that one is not expected to be launched in India. 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. Now, the next innovation is in the display technology, and as you can see, the trend is shifting towards taller displays.

Connectivity features include WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC & USB type c reversible connector.

The display beautifully blends with the device giving the phone an overall black look.
The Sad part here is that you won't be getting any launch offers this time other than what we get usually and the 3.5 mm audio jack is also missing. A 3400mAh battery completes the package. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 was launched in China in three variants: 6GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, and finally one with 6GB RAM + 256GB on board storage. The smartphone will be available to buy from the first week of November.

The Mi MIX 2 is priced at Rs 35,999 and will be available via Flipkart and Mi.com/in, with the first sale taking place on October 17 at 12PM.

Xiaomi has launched its handsome bezel-less display phone Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 in the Indian market. Last week, the Chinese company rolled out official invitations for the same. While the Mi Mix felt like a prototype, the Mi Mix 2 feels more like a finished product, thanks to curvier edges. So, with the Mi Mix 2, Xiaomi is taking a gamble, launching a premium model that will compete against Samsung's Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5, and Apple's iPhone 8, among others.
