Xiaomi today launched the Mi Mix 2 and the smartphone is also poised to launch in the Indian market soon as per the tweet from Indian CEO Mr Manu Kumar Jain.
Here is a brief Specs comparison when compared to the older Mi Mix to see what has changed and also we have compared it to the crowd favorite OnePlus 5. The OnePlus 5 is priced at Rs. 32,999 and we are expecting the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 to launch in India at the same price as the OnePlus 5.
The smartphone will compete with the likes of LG G6 and the OnePlus or the Huawei Honor Pro in the Indian market when launched. Though, no confirmed date is provided we can expect the smartphone to launch in October ahead of Diwali season.
It is almost 1.5 years since the launch of Xiaomi Mi5 in the country that Xiaomi has brought a new high end smartphone to the market. Lets Look at the quick Specs and design comparison of the 3 devices.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix was the original true Bezel less smartphone launched in November 2016 in China. The smartphone was designed by the french designer Philippe Starck and was only available for purchase in the Chinese market.
