Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 hits India

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 hits India

The Xiaomi Mi A1 is a mid-range phone, it has a metal body and a 5.5-inch fullHD display. General availability will commence in the first week of November at Flipkart, Mi Home stores and Xiaomi's offline partners. It includes 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.

The Mi MIX 2 is the successor to last year's groundbreaking Mi MIX, that really started the bezel-less design revolution. Today Samsung, LG, Vivo and even Micromax offer handsets with nearly bezel-less designs. It technically doesn't have any bezels around the top and sides leaving only a prominent bezel at the bottom.

Mi Mix 2 comes with a ceramic back cover and all glass on the front. It has a pixel density of 570 ppi, and features a complete DCI-P3 colour gamut support. The processor used is Snapdragon 625 64-bit octa-core SoC. Xiaomi, in the past, has launched a smartphone over Rs 20k. This phone runs on Android 7.1 (Nougat) with layer of MIUI 8. Xiaomi instead turned its attention to the budget segment, where it fared exceedingly well over the last 12 months. It will be upgraded to Android 8 Oreo. Mi Mix 2 will come in only one variant in India with 6GB RAM and 128GB on board storage. Like all Xiaomi's flagships, it does not support expandable storage. It had launched a Special Edition model that packed 8GB of RAM and an all-ceramic body in China, but didn't mention whether that would be coming to the subcontinent as well.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 launching in India tomorrow exclusively on Flipkart
Priced cheaper, can Mi Mix 2 beat OnePlus 5 in India?

Here is where you can watch the launch event live. It sports a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 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. It comes with a 5.99 inch full HD LCD display.

But more than just being a move that renders the Mi Mix 2 looking inferior to its competition, the move also gives birth to issues that dampen the experience of using the phone. The device has all the requisite sensors on board. 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. The phablet is fueled by 3,400mAh battery.

Being a flagship phone, the Mix 2 offers top-notch hardware in the form of 2.45GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, Adreno 540 GPU.
