Xiaomi launches Mi Mix 2 flagship in India

This is Xiaomi's latest premium flagship handset launch in the country since the Xiaomi Mi 5, which happened nearly two years back.

The dual-SIM Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will be available in three inbuilt storage variants, namely - 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB with no storage expandable options available. This means you will not be able to use your regular pair of headphones with the Mi Mix 2 without an adapter - which Xiaomi does ship with the phone.

Featuring a 5.99 inch display, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 packs a Snapdragon 835 processor.

This time it has a physical earpiece instead of the Bone conduction technology used in the old Mi MIX.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi aims to become more of an internet company in India going forward, replicating its China model, by monetising a host of services such as finance and entertainment, a top executive said, adding that the short-term goal remains to take leadership position in the handset space.

The most stellar aspect of the device, the display nearly stretches from edge to edge with a screen to body ratio of 93 per cent. This year in June it launched the OnePlus 5 but by August it had competition in the form of Nokia 8 by Finland-based HMD Global. The phone maintains a sleek look at just 7.7-mm. You have to rotate the phone upside down for clicking selfied from a normal angle, and Xiaomi has made sure that the camera UI rotates 180 degrees so that it adjusts. It comes with a ceramic body and aluminum frame with fingerprint scanner placed at the back.

Xiaomi learnt a lot from the original Mi Mix and it has applied those learnings in the successor.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 comes features a metal chassis with the ceramic rear body and comes with a 5.99-inch (2160 x 1080) Super AMOLED with an 18:9 full-screen display and a bezel-less display. This aspect ratio increases the canvas area by nearly 12.5% and, thus, makes using apps like Google Maps incredibly easy. 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.

Last year OnePlus was in a league of its own.
