Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 bezel-less smartphone – All you need to know
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 had made its launching in India today at an event in New Delhi. The Mi Mix 2 is a bezel-less smartphone that will join devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8+, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, LG Q6, Vivo V7+, iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 XL all of which sport the 18:9 aspect ratio.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is here with three variants, one with 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage, the other with 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage, and finally, one with 6GB RAM/ 256GB storage. The special edition of the smartphone comes with an all-ceramic body, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
The smartphone has a 5.99-inch full-HD display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. The display has an aspect ratio of 18:9 and also boasts of a DCI-P3 colour gamut. Under the hood, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. The rear of the device has a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor with 1.25-micron pixels, 4-axis optical image stabilisation, 5-piece lens and an f/2.0 aperture. The smartphone also boasts of face recognition technology. The front camera on the smartphone is a 5MP shooter. It also supports Bluetooth 5.0, and USB Type-C.
The Mi Mix 2 will go up for sale later this month for ₹35,999 for the variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage, and will be available exclusively on Flipkart.
The main highlight with the Mi Mix 2 is the bezel-less design, with three sides of the phone sporting virtually no bezels. To achieve the effect, Xiaomi had to move the front camera to the bottom bezel. The phone has a 5.9-inch screen with a 2048 x 1080 FHD+ panel, and there’s also a notification LED tucked away in the bottom bar. Last year’s Mi Mix used a piezoelectric driver for calls, but the Mi Mix 2 offers a regular earpiece.
