Finally, an Mi MIX 2 phone for India. We’ve been waiting for it to happen since it’s Chinese launch, but the official confirmation has remained elusive till today. Xiaomi’s VP in India, Manu Jain, has just posted on Twitter that the Mi MIX 2 will launch in India on October 10. The announcement comes at a time when Diwali is just around the corner. Xiaomi India also teased the launch event that will happen in New Delhi with a poster on Twitter.
As for the pricing & variants, we are yet to see how Xiaomi will price it. But if past history is any indication, Xiaomi’s pricing is very sensible. The 64 GB variant of the Mi MIX 2 retails for CNY 3299 ( Rs 32,500 approx.) in China. While the 128 GB variant retails at about CNY 3,549 (Rs 34,900 approx.). The 256 GB is set to cost at least Rs 39,300 if the CNY 3999 price is any indication. The exact pricing will only be known on October 10.
It remains to be seen how the Mi MIX 2 is received in India, but positioning it ahead of Diwali is a good idea. So far, the phone has sold out in its flash sales in China in 1 minute. The phone is likely to be sold online in India as well, and we presume it is going to be in short supply.
The Mi MIX 2’s claim to fame is the 5.99-inch full-screen display with above 90% screen on the front. The display at once steals the attention of any onlooker at first glance.Hence, the phone has a lot of oomph in it to warrant a purchase. The premium metal body has shrunk this time to present a much more usable phone compared to last year. The specs of the phone are what you expect in flagships these days. That too at a price that would make OnePlus blush at their flagship killer accolade. To know more about the specs of the device, visit this link here.
