Xiaomi has been one of the underdogs in the flagship segments, the company might be very successful in the budget segment but they are yet to make a name for themselves in the high-end flagship segment.

Last year, the company stunned the world when they unveiled the Mi Mix. It was a special smartphone consider the fact that it had a bezel-less display. But overall, the smartphone didn’t have all the ingredients required to give a competition to smartphones like the S7 Edge, iPhone 7 Plus, LG G5 or even the OnePlus 3T.

Anyway, Xiaomi is back with a new smartphone of this series which is the Mi Mix 2. The device looks almost identical to the last year’s Mi Mix but does come with several changes and improvements. For instance, the edges of the device are now rounded which makes it very easy to hold it in hands.

Secondly, the screen size has also been reduced so carry and using it as your daily device isn’t that of big of an issue. So here is everything which you need to know about the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.

#Mi Mix 2 will be available in India officially

Last year, Xiaomi fans in India wasn’t happy with the fact that the Mi Mix wasn’t going to come in India.

Well that all in the past, as Xiaomi has finally confirmed that this year’s Mi Mix 2 will be hitting the Indian market, but unlike the Mi 5 or Mi 6, the Mi Mix 2 is going to be a bit costlier.

The device may come around at a price tag of Rs 30K to 35K depending on the variant you choose, however, the company hasn’t officially given a date or time regarding the Mi Mix 2 launch in India.

#Single rear facing camera

As stated earlier, Xiaomi did make some changes in their new Mi Mix 2, and one of them being the removal of the dual rear camera setup which we saw last year in the Mi Mix.

This time you are getting only a single 12 MP rear facing camera along with dual-tone LED flash. Now the camera quality of the Mi Mix wasn’t really good and was criticized by all. However, this time around Xiaomi has done remarkable improvement. Xiaomi has also provided 4-axis OIS in its camera for better stable images and videos.

Although, the camera may still fail to match up with the likes of Google Pixel, Galaxy S7, iPhone 7 Plus, etc. but if Xiaomi prices this device aggressively then for the price it will certainly be a good buy.

#Smaller display

The Mi Mix had a giant 6.44-inch screen, and this huge screen size also made the Mi Mix not so comfortable to hold in hands for one hand usage or even to carry it here and there. But Xiaomi has taken a look on this matter, as a result with the Mi Mix 2, you are getting a 5.99-inch display.

But that not all, the screen resolution has also been increased, so now you will be getting a smaller display with a better screen quality, which is a good thing for those who like watching a lot of video content on their smartphones.

#Smaller battery

The Mi Mix not only had a bigger screen but it also featured a mammoth battery. The 4400 mAh battery offered a good backup, however, with the Mi Mix 2, you now get a 3400 mAh battery.

Although the device supports fast charging, the 3400 mAh will hardly be able to give you a full day of battery life in case you are a heavy user.

#Available variants

The Mi Mix 2 will be available in three memory variants; the normal variant will be available with 6 GB of RAM with 64 GB or 128 GB of ROM, whereas, the special variant will feature 8 GB of RAM, and 256 GB of ROM.

#No Audio Jack

It seems that smartphones with no headphone jack are getting kind of popular. Even though last year’s Mi Mix had the headphone jack, but this year’s Mi Mix 2 doesn’t feature any headphone jack.

Nonetheless, with the device, you will also be getting 3.5 mm adapter jack through which you’ll be able to use your earphones and headphones.
