Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Launched: Price, Specifications And More
Finally, Xiaomi launched the successor of the smartphone that revolutionized the mobile phone market a little over a year ago. Of course, I am talking about the new and expected Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
After presenting its new generation of ultrabooks, it was time to review the work and success of the Chinese brand that it had with the Xiaomi Mi Mix, the first smartphone without frames that came to the market to start a fashion that in 2017 has lived its full glory. Now among the features of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, we found what for many today was impossible: to present a screen with even fewer frames.
Carrying the display without any bezel
Following the display format of other high-end smartphones released this year, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 aims to show 18:9, generating a better display for the content of all kinds. This is due to the disappearance, even more, of the frames that surround the display of the screen.
This causes the lower bezel, the most prominent of the whole body of the phone, to reduce its size by 12%, so we are officially facing one of the devices with fewer frames around the screen that today we can find in the market.
While if we talk about the screen, then it is integrated with an ultrathin metallic design where the ceramics also makes an appearance. In addition, the screen of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is curved by the 4 sides, thanks to the 2.5D technology that finishes giving a premium aspect to the device.
More features of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
Inside the smartphone we can find the expected processor of Qualcomm, of course, Snapdragon 835 which is accompanied by 6GB of RAM, as indicated the first rumors associated with the smartphone. What about the storage? It will be available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB variant, but, without the possibility of expanding through the use of MicroSD cards, something that is clearly unnecessary in the Xiaomi smartphone.
The handset comes complete with a 3,400 mAh battery with Qualcomm’s fast charging technology and Android 7.1.1. Nougat with MIUI 9. During the presentation of the smartphone, the company didn’t say a word about the update to Android Oreo but it is expected to land in the coming months. We also have a USB Type C and fingerprint sensor on the back.
As far as the camera of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, it doesn’t have a double camera setup in the back, something that we did not expect. Instead, we find a Sony IMX86 sensor of 12 MP that hides inside an optical stabilization system, just like the main camera of the Xiaomi Mi 6. For its part, the front sensor reaches 5 MP.
Availability and price of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will have three versions, something that the brand already has us accustomed. The most basic model will start with 64 GB of storage memory, but we will also find options for 128 GB and 256 GB capacity. Of course, all of them will have the same 6 GB of RAM.
In this way the model of 6GB + 64GB memory reaches the market for 3299 yuan (about $500), the 6GB + 128GB goes up to 3599 yuan (about $550) while the model 6 GB + 256 GB, the most interesting of all, grows up to 3999 Yuan ($600 euros).
Special Edition of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
However, still, a new member is there, of course, I am talking about the classic version of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, made of black and white ceramics, will arrive on the market. The main innovation of this smartphone is that its storage will be 128 GB, but the RAM grows up to 8 GB, same amount that we can find in the OnePlus 5. All other smartphones internal and display features remain unchanged.
