  • Xiaomi-Mi-MIX-2--video

The Mi Mix 2 will hit general availability in the first week of November during which it'll go up for sale via Mi Home outlets and other offline shops. The Mi MIX 2 features a 6-inch bezel-less screen and 18:9 aspect ratio. The Mi MIX 2 is also powered by the current flagship mobile processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835 SoC.

In terms of the battery it comes with a 3500 mAh.

On the imaging front, this phone is mounted with 12MP rear camera having 18k gold-plated camera rim with Sony IMX386 sensor, f/2.0 aperture, Dual LED flash, 4K video recording and 4-axis optical stabilization. Last year's Mi Mix used a piezoelectric driver for calls, but the Mi Mix 2 offers a regular earpiece.

The main highlight with the Mi Mix 2 is the bezel-less design, with three sides of the phone sporting virtually no bezels. However, that is not to say the phone does not have its fair share of issues. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack in the phone. The speaker sits underneath the display and a "sound guiding tube" helps improve the loudness of the sound. And we'll also have our own review up soon, so make sure to check back to see our full opinion about the device. However, for the first time, Xiaomi has launched a 0 percent interest scheme for the EMI option in India.

International Monetary Fund raises China growth forecast for 2017 to 6.8%
The IMF says the global economy is gaining strength, with growth marked up at 3.6% this year and 3.7% for 2018. In 2017, it is forecast to rise to 1.4% in Norway and increase (by about 1.5%) to 3% in Canada.


Other features on the Mi MIX 2 include 43 network bands making the phone reliable for those who travel globally. We've already reviewed the Xiaomi Mi A1, just in case you need more info. The front camera has been placed below the display at right corner. While taking a selfie, the user has to look down at the camera or simply flip the phone around.

As for specs, the Mi Mix 2 runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, with 6GB of LPDDR4X dual channel memory and 128GB internal storage. The Mi Mix 2 houses 7-series aluminum alloy frame with new antenna technology. The phone gets its juice from a 3500mAh battery.

Camera performance is something Mi Mix 2's future will depend on- it offers great display, gorgeous design, top-notch hardware, but what about the camera? After an initial period of losing some ground, because Xiaomi was offering similar or better specifications for much lower prices, Samsung fought back and has consolidated. You have to rotate the phone upside down for clicking selfied from a normal angle, and Xiaomi has made sure that the camera UI rotates 180 degrees so that it adjusts.
