Xiaomi Mi Mix

Xiaomi is scheduled to launch the bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 on October 10. Manu Kumar Jain, MD of Xiaomi India took to Twitter and shared the news of the official launch. The tweet mentions that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will hit Indian shores on October 10 and also added #TheOriginalX hashtag and tagged the official Xiaomi India handle. Jain also shared an image of the upcoming smartphone on his tweet.

We can clearly visualize the bezel-less display on all the three sides except the bottom portion where few bezels have been left. We expect that the bezel will accommodate navigation keys including a fingerprint sensor.

The launch of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 assumes significance since the original Mi Mix was never launched in India. The launch of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will set a solid foundation and will compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6.

Talking about the specifications, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will be equipped with a 5.9-inch FHD display, Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor, 5MP front camera loaded with Android Nougat-based MIUI.

The display will have a resolution of 19:9 aspect ratio coupled with a pixel density of 403PPI. Xioami also released a special edition of the handset with 8GB RAM. We don’t have any idea as to whether the company will release the special edition in India. However, the chances are minimum because of marketing issues.
