Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 India Launch Confirmed By Manu Kumar Jain – Xiaomi India head Mr Manu Kumar Jain tweeted and shared that the new smartphone Mi Mix 2 will launch in India as well.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 was launched in China today and after couple hours of launch the good news for the India launch was shared by Manu Kumar Jain on his twitter handle.
It is a very big news for the Xiaomi India fans as the smartphone will be the only flagship phone that Xiaomi has brought to India since the Xiaomi Mi 5 in early 2016.
Almost after 1.5 years Xiaomi is planning to get a high end smartphone in the Indian market and that is surely a big deal for many Xiaomi followers.
Xiaomi is now the second most popular brand in the Indian market and has sold more than 2.5 Crore smartphones since it’s inception in the country in 2014.
In just 3 years the brand has become number 2 and pushed out the Indian brands like Micromax, Lava and Intex from the top 5 slot. The expansion of Xiaomi is a big concern for Samsung which is the market leader and have 23.6% market share compared to 17% of Xiaomi.
While Xiaomi has been strong in the budget segment and mid range they have been missing action in the high end flagship market. Now with the new Mi Mix 2 they are planning to capture the high end market as well.
Xiaomi MI MIX 2
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is launched in the 4 variants in the Chinese market for the Mi Mix 2.
We can expect the starting price in India close to Rs. 33,000 for the Mi Mix 2 base variant with 64 GB storage while the 128 GB storage version can be priced close to Rs. 36,000 and the 256 GB version if launched in the country will be priced close to Rs. 40,000.
It is difficult to say if Xiaomi will also launch the Special edition made of ceramic in the Indian market which is priced at 4699 RMB or Rs. 46,500. The special edition comes with 8 GB of Ram.
It would be great if Xiaomi can also bring the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 in the Indian market which will strengthen the mid range portfolio more in the 20k to 30k price range.
