Xiaomi manages to turn heads with its Mi Mix last year. However, it was a very unfinished phone and didn’t ship to any country except China. However, this year, Xiaomi seems to market the Mix lineup as their new flagship lineup with the Mi Mix 2. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 brings the bezel-less design of the Mi Mix in a smaller and more usable form. Here is all that you need to know about the phone.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has a ceramic body just like last year’s Mi Mix. The front is similar to the Mi Mix but has smaller bezels. The phone retains the chin with the front camera on it. The fingerprint sensor is placed at a convenient location at the back. The overall form factor of the phone is now smaller with a 6-inch display at the front. The phone is quite heavy due to the ceramic body and is also very slippery. The phone looks gorgeous but nobody would be willing to risk a drop.
Pricing and Availability
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is expected to go on sale around late this September. Xiaomi has announced that the phone will retail in China at a starting price of RMB 3200 which translates to $500 dollars but there are some variations to be expected from country to country. If the phone manages to be sold under $530 by Xiaomi then it will directly compete with the OnePlus 5. The company says that it will try to launch the phone in as much countries as it can. These include the US, India and other Asian countries.
