  • Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is already being offered at a discounted price

India did not receive the Xiaomi Mi 6 flagship phone that was launched earlier in this year in China. The OnePlus 5, is available in two variants - 6GB RAM + 64GB storage priced at Rs 32,999, whereas the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant is priced at Rs 37,999.

On the imaging front, you will get a 12-megapixel single sensor rear camera with OIS, two-tone LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front shooter. Offline availability will start from the first week of November. Being a concept phone, the Mi MIX wasn't sold in very many regions, but the Mi MIX 2 is soon to be available in the Indian market for ₹35,999. However, for the first time, Xiaomi has launched a 0 percent interest scheme for the EMI option in India.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 was launched in India on Tuesday at an event in New Delhi. IDC also says that given Xiaomi's strong track record with mid-range smartphones like the Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4, there will likely be a positive outlook towards the Mi Mix 2. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 sports a four-sided curved ceramic body with 7-Series aluminium alloy frame and a 18K gold plated camera ring on the back panel, giving it an overall luxury and premium outlook. It will be Xiaomi's most expensive device in India. The phablet is fueled by 3,400mAh battery.

Powering Mi MIX 2 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (64 bit) Octa-Core processor clocked at 2.45Ghz coupled with 6GB of RAM, and for gaming, it has an Adreno 540 GPU.

The much anticipated "bezelless" phone from Xiaomi, Mi Mix 2, has been launched in India at a price of Rs 35,999 for the 128 GB version. For the selfie enthusiasts, the device features a 5 MP front-facing selfie camera, which is located on the lower chin of the device. On the software fronts, the device runs company's proprietary MIUI 9 custom UI skin, based on Google's Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. It also incorporates fingerprint sensor on the back. It has a 4-axis optical image stabilisation, 5-piece lens, a f/2.0 aperture. In contrast, Mi Mix 2 Special Edition has a ceramic unibody design.

Concluding, the Mi Mix 2 is a great product from Xiaomi's house.

But more than just being a move that renders the Mi Mix 2 looking inferior to its competition, the move also gives birth to issues that dampen the experience of using the phone. It comes with an USB Type C port and loses the 3.5mm headphone jack.
