One of the best handset maker in the industry at this point has to be Xiaomi, with its varied lineup across price ranges. Not only is the brand coming out with affordable premium handsets, but is also innovating quite aggressively when it comes to the technology. We got to witness the innovation prowess of the brand when it came out with its Mi Mix last year. Not only was the handset a beast of a performer but also one of the prettiest handset around. Now, the Chinese handset maker is following it up with the next generation called Mi Mix 2. In case you liked the first iteration and want your hands on the next, here is a brief overview of the same.
Bezel-less display: The highlight of Mi Mix was the completely bezel-less display on three sides barring the chin of the handset, which looked absolutely incredible. The Mi Mix 2 follows on the same lines albeit with curved corners, which add to the premium factor. The 6.4-inch display dominating the front panel of this device features a full HD AMOLED panel, which looks stunning as soon as it is turned on.
Ceramic build: In an era where every brand is creating smartphones with either glass, metal or both, Xiaomi is treading a different path. Last year’s Mi Mix was crafted from a single slab of ceramic and was one of the sturdiest handset in the market. The Mi Mix 2 is expected to come with the same build quality and will ooze the same level of premium and class.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835: It comes as no suspense that consumers want handsets, which can deliver top in class performance. And it has always been the motto of Xiaomi to offer class leading performance and take the competition straight to the high-end flagships from tier-1 brands. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is a high end device from the Chinese maker so it is obvious for it to come with latest specs. Therefore, it is a given that the device will flaunt the latest Snapdragon 835 processor mated to massive 6GB of RAM.
Powerfull battery: The Chinese handset maker is also known to offer devices with some of the best batteries in the market, right from the budget segment to high end flagships. The Mi Mix 2 will come with a massive 4,400mAh battery under the rear panel, which can easily power through a day and more. Moreover, it will also feature quick charging to help charge up the monster battery.
Might not come to India : While Xiaomi Mi Mix was one of the most anticipated handset around the time it was launched, it never found its way to the Indian market. Xiaomi has decided that it will not launch high-end smartphones in the country since there is no market for the same. And if this is true, we might not get to lay our hands on the Mi Mix 2 as well.
