Xiaomi has officially informed that the Mi MIX 2 smartphone will be unveiled at an event on September 11. The second generation of the popular Mi Mix series of smartphones has undergone several leaks and rumours, but now the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has confirmed that the launch will take place in Beijing, according to a Weibo report. While the report says that the event will take place at the University of Technology Gymnasium in the capital, however, the time of the launch event has not been unveiled yet. Interestingly, tech giant Apple is slated to launch the next iPhone, perhaps called the iPhone 8, on September 12, just one day after the Xiaomi launch. Earlier, a few reports had suggested that the Mi MIX 2 will come on the same day as the iPhone, but the recent report has cleared that doubt.
Xiaomi, in the post on Weibo, has also clearly confirmed the name of the phone, that is Mi MIX 2. Other than the date of launch, the company has also showcased a picture of the Mi MIX 2 and it suggests that the Xiaomi mobile is almost bezel-less. According to the latest rumours regarding the display, the Mi MIX 2 will have a whopping 93 percent ratio of screen to body. In comparison, Mi MIX had 91.3 percent ratio for the same.
When it comes to the price of Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, there is not much information available. However, we expect Xiaomi to price the smartphone a little more than the first version in the Mi MIX series. When it comes to the Mi MIX phone, the price point began at CNY 3,499 which is about Rs 35,000 in Indian currency. This was the launch price of the lower 4GB RAM and 128GB ROM variant of the phone. When it comes to the higher model, the 6GB RAM and 256GB ROM variant, the phone was priced at CNY 3,999 which is around Rs 40,000 in Indian currency. However, since the Mi MIX did not come to India, there is a big question mark on the launch of Mi MIX 2. However, since Xiaomi India Vice President shared an image of the phone from his own Twitter handle, there is a big chance that the phone may come to India.
According to various leaks, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will run the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. This is a common chipset available on most flagship devices. This phone is expected to come in the 6GB RAM variant. However, it won’t be surprising if the Chinese company comes up with an 8GB RAM model of the Mi MIX 2. In terms of display, the Mi MIX could feature a big 6.4-inch QHD display with 1440×2560 resolution. When it comes to the camera, this phone might not have the dual setup. The rear camera is expected to be of 19MP and the selfie shooter of 13MP. With such massive specs, the phone will feature at least a 4,500mAh battery. While the feature of facial recognition is a thing Apple may introduce in the iPhone 8, some reports have said that even Xiaomi may bring the same on the Mi MIX 2.
