Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 launch in India today: Expected price, specifications, features

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is already being offered at a discounted price

How does it fare compared to bezel-less phones from the likes of LG and Samsung? The front camera is located at the bottom due to the absence of top bezel.

Mi Mix 2 comes with a ceramic back cover and all glass on the front.

For audio output, this phone incorporates a hidden 50mW speaker that only takes up a thin sliver of space between the top edge of the phone and the screen instead of the piezoelectric speaker solution in Mi MIX. The processor used is Snapdragon 625 64-bit octa-core SoC.

The company expects to sell more handsets than previous year when it managed to sell 58 million units due to new product launches at reasonable prices without compromising on features and gaining popularity in India. The phone was announced last month.


Xiaomi has finally launched the Mi MIX 2 in India just as it promised. In India, Xiaomi has launched only the 6GB RAM (64GB ROM) variant in India and skipped the special edition versions. The launch event was held in New Delhi starting at 11.30am Indian time.

In terms of camera capability, the device offers a 12 MP rear-facing Sony-made sensor, which 1.25 micros pixel size and 4 axial image stabilisation, which should reduce the blur and improves the low light photography. The feature will make it compete with the iPhone X as the company is also touting facial recognition technology for unlocking the device.

The highlight of the display is that Xiaomi has removed the earpiece giving the screen more area. It is a Dual-SIM handset and comes with the support of 4G VoLte. Connectivity features of the phone are 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type C and Global Positioning System. The device has all the requisite sensors on board.

There are obvious downsides - no IP67 rating (water and dust resistant), MIUI (which quite a few people dislike), has a standard single-lens camera setup and there is no headphone jack or wireless charging - but I'm not going to get into that. The smartphone runs on a 3400mAh battery, measures 151.8x75.5x7.7mm, and weighs 185 grams. A 3,080mAh non-removable battery is also a part of this package, and you're also getting fast charging here. The company has launched the Mi MIX 2 in its 6GB RAM, 128GB storage variant in the country, with no mention of whether the other variants will be brought here as well.
