Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 with Snapdragon 835 SoC and bezel-less design launching in India next week
Last year, Xiaomi surprised everyone with the launch of the Mi MIX – company’s first smartphone with bezel-less design. Now this year, in September, Xiaomi launched its successor – the Mi MIX 2. The Mi MIX was never launched in India, however, as soon as the Mi MIX 2 was unveiled in China, Manu Jain, who is the VP of Xiaomi and Managing Director of Xiaomi India, had confirmed that the Mi MIX 2 would be launched in India soon. At that time, no date was revealed for the launch of Mi MIX 2 in India, however, we now know that it will be launched in the country next week.
This was announced by Manu Jain on Twitter who said that the Mi MIX 2 will be launched in India on October 10. The Mi MIX 2, like its predecessor, flaunts the same bezel-less design. It has a ceramic body along with metal frames. However, the screen size has been reduced from 6.44-inch on the Mi MIX to 5.99-inch on the Mi MIX 2.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC which is laced with 6 GB or 8 GB RAM. The 8 GB RAM variant is the Special Edition which we think wouldn’t be launched in India. Having said that, the 6 GB RAM variant is offered in three storage options – 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. Out of these three, we might see Xiaomi only launching the 64 GB and 128 GB storage variants which are priced at RMB 3299 (around ₹32,431) and RMB 3599 (₹35,380) respectively.
