Xiaomi has launched the 128GB variant of Mi MIX 2 in India. Like all Xiaomi’s flagships, it does not support expandable storage. There’s a Special Edition of the MIX 2, sporting an all-ceramic build and 8GB of RAM. But that one is not expected to be launched in India.
The main camera on the MIX 2 will feature a 12 megapixel Sony IMX 386 sensor with 1.25 micron pixels, 4-axis optical image stabilization (OIS), Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and a 5-element lens.

The smartphone packs in a 3400mAh battery which can last for more than a day of regular usage. The Mi MIX 2 supports Quick Charge 3.0 and comes packed with a QC 3.0 charger in the box.
Price and Variants
In India, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will cost Rs. 35,999/- for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. There was no mention of any other variants at the launch event.

This is Xiaomi’s latest premium flagship handset launch in the country since the Xiaomi Mi 5, which happened almost two years back. It seems the Chinese smartphone maker is taking the Indian market more seriously, and is pushing premium products into the market lately. Mi MIX 2 offers top notch specifications. It will go head-to-head against the likes of OnePlus 5, Nokia 8, iPhone 7 and the LG G6.
Xiaomi didn’t see much success with Xiaomi Mi 5 in India, like it did with it’s other quality budget phones. So, it will be interesting to see whether Mi MIX 2 can entice people to buy premium smartphones from Xiaomi.
