Xiaomi has launched its first ever bezel-less handset, Mi MIX 2, in India. The first Mi Mix was not internationally released, but it was still able to pique the interest of the consumers and industry watchers all over.
On the back, the Mi MIX 2 is in a handsome ceramic finish and has been jointly designed with world-renowned designer Philippe Starck, . The earlier stock of Mi Mix 2 ran out of stock in just 58 seconds after its launch in China.More news: Prince Harry joins MoD for 'mental fitness' drive
IDC says that the Mi Mix's design and high-end specs makes it a worthy competitor in the premium segment, giving users a pretty decent alternative considering that the Galaxy S8 is priced at Rs 54,000 and the iPhone 8 is priced over Rs 60,000. While the Mi Mix felt like a prototype, the Mi Mix 2 feels more like a finished product, thanks to curvier edges. The company has launched Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 in India. Furthermore, the Mi Mix 2 comes with a full ceramic body that is carved out of 7-series aluminium alloy. Though the problem here is that these don't come bundled with the phone and buying them will set the customer back by Rs 2,999. On the battery front, the Mi Mix 2 comes packed with a decent non-removable 3,400mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology support. So, when it comes to the built-in storage, it packs in the current ubiquitous standard of 128GB, that the 2017 flagships like the OnePlus 5 and the LG V30+ have been known to carry. Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS / GLONASS / Beidou, and USB Type-C port. The Sad part here is that you won't be getting any launch offers this time other than what we get usually and the 3.5 mm audio jack is also missing. It sports a 12MP single rear camera with 4-axis image stabilisation and a 5MP front facing the camera with facial recognition features. It comes with a ceramic body and aluminum frame with fingerprint scanner placed at the back. Like with most Xiaomi devices, there will be no earphones. Xiaomi will also be launching Mi Noise Cancelling Earphones, priced at Rs 2,999 soon. It is expected to go on sale there in November.
When you picture the Mi MiX 2, you can't help but notice its delicate nature.
