Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

Xiaomi has officially launched the much-anticipated Mi MIX 2 in India. During the launch event, Jai Mani revealed that the Mi MIX 2 will meet the growing expectations of the changing lifestyle of the people. The attraction of Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is the addition of a 6-inch bezel-less display coupled with Snapdragon 835 processor. Moreover, the aspect ratio of the display is 18:9 and it provides a premium visual experience. Moreover, the phone comes with an ultrasonic sensor instead of proximity.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is designed using a ceramic material with a 7-series aluminum frame and will be Flipkart exclusive. The phone will be available on October 17 on a preview basis followed by wide availability in early November.

Design

Xiami has integrated a hidden sound-guided speaker that isolates sound through the frame and display. The facial recognition technology helps you to quickly unlock the handset. The handset is designed with a 18K gold plated camera ring on the backside. It also provides support for 6 modes and 43 bands. Hence the Mi MIX 2 is globally compatible with all 4G LTE networks.

Display

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 features a 5.99-inch FHD+ display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. Moreover, the display offers a pixel density of 403PPI with support for DCI-P3 color gamut. The phone includes minimum bezels on all the three sides. The bottom portion is equipped with a small bezel to accommodate front-facing camera and sensors.

Performance

Powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 features 6GB RAM with a 128GB non-expandable internal storage. The processor runs at a clock speed of 2.45GHz, which helps you to work with the apps and play games without lags. The 128GB storage capacity is the only model which will be available in India. You will work with MIUI 9, which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat. We expect the company to push Android Oreo update within the next few months.
