Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 India launch today

The company has also been expanding its offline presence and has been setting up more Mi Homes in the country, which will prove useful as it tries to market the Mi Mix 2. Make sure to check out the entire video and watch us take a brief look at the Mi Mix 2's interface and camera, as well as to see some beauty shots of its striking exterior. So, with the Mi Mix 2, Xiaomi is taking a gamble, launching a premium model that will compete against Samsung's Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5, and Apple's iPhone 8, among others. The Mi Mix 2 comes with a 5.99 inch display which sports a QuadHD resolution. The phone is powered by a hefty 3400mAh battery pack. However, the company claims that the device will fit into the footprint of a 5.5 inch smartphone.

The highlight of the display is that Xiaomi has removed the earpiece giving the screen more area.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 price in India: The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 India price is set at Rs 35,999. While taking a selfie, the user has to look down at the camera or simply flip the phone around.

Now, the Mi Mix 2 has been priced in India at Rs 35,999, which is Xiaomi's most premium offering till date in India.

Though Xiaomi has programmed the phone's inbuilt ultrasonic proximity sensor to flip the phone's view by 180 degrees to compensate for the bottom mounted camera, comment on its accuracy should be reserved for the days to come. A special edition with an all-ceramic body, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage is yet to be announced.

The three editions include one with 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage, the other with 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage, and the last one with 6GB RAM/ 256GB storage.

The phone's lack of any sort of waterproofing also serves as a big reason to not go for the phone. That trend continues with the Mi Mix 2, which will retail for ₹35,999. For starters, Xiaomi is notorious for being late with their updates, and as such the phone coming with MIUI could prove to work against the phone. And here's the best part: it supports pretty much any band you can think of, making it suitable for use even in the United States.
