Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Smartphone With 5.99-inch Bezel-less Display, Snapdragon 835 SoC Launched At Rs 35,999
Barely a month after unveiling it in its home country of China, Xiaomi has brought its Mi Mix 2 flagship smartphone to Indian shores. Priced extremely competitively at Rs 35,999, the handset will be available for purchase on Flipkart and Mi.com in a special sale on October 17.
Just like its predecessor that launched last year, the Mi Mix 2 sports a premium construction, and is crafted from ceramic and aluminium. The USP of the smartphone is undoubtedly its 5.99-inch bezel-less display, which makes the Mi Mix 2 relatively compact for a smartphone with a screen this big. Having an 18:9 aspect ratio, the IPS LCD panel has a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and a pixel density of around 403ppi.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is no slouch when it comes to raw specifications either. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 SoC (with eight Kryo cores), paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. That said, there’s no memory expansion slot. The smartphone runs Android 7.1 Nougat with Xiaomi’s MIUI layer baked on top.
For imaging duties, the Mi Mix 2 has a 12MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus, four axis OIS and two-tone dual-LED flash. The camera can record 4K resolution videos at 30fps and 720p videos at 120fps. There’s a 5MP front-facing shooter thrown into the mix for selfies and video calls.
All modern connectivity options like Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi direct, Bluetooth 5.0 and USB Type-C are present on the Mi Mix 2. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. But the ‘courageous’ flagship doesn’t come with a 3.5mm audio port. The smartphone has a fairly-decent 3,400mAh battery that includes Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support.
