Just a few hours ago, Xiaomi announced the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 in China, the second iteration of its Mi MIX smartphone lineup, adopting the similar high-end smartphone with almost bezel-less design like numerous other big companies these days. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will have 2 major variants available, a metal and ceramic standard version and a ceramic unibody design based Special Edition.
According to the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 specs released by the Chinese manufacturer, the phone will have a 5.99-inch 2160 x 1080 display with an 18:9 aspect ratio putting it in the same league as some tier phablets like the Galaxy Note 8 which we reviewed recently.
As for the variants we mentioned above, the Special Edition will have a whopping 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 standard edition has 3 further versions, each with 6GB of RAM but internal storage options of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. All four of these options are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor and Adreno 540 GPU, both of which seem to be the trend among flagship devices these days.
All the variants of the smartphone will feature a 12MP back camera that uses Sony’s IMX386 sensor and a 5MP front camera. For security purposes, there is also a fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone. The Special Edition Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will have 18K gold coating around the camera and fingerprint scanner rims.
Following in Apple’s footsteps, Xiaomi has also removed the 3.5mm jack from the device so those with old 3.5mm headphones will have to use a special dongle. Thankfully, the dongle is included for free in the smartphone package. Xiaomi hasn’t gone into full details regarding the price and market availability but the 64GB standard edition will be available for 3300 Yuan while the 128GB Special Edition with 8GB RAM will cost users 4700 Yuan. The 128GB and 256GB models will most probably be between these two offerings
