Xiaomi has officially announced its intentions to launch the Mi Mix 2 in India, organizing an event on October 10 to unveil the phone. The brand had promised to bring the device to the nation shortly after its debut, but didn’t specify when exactly this would happen.
The original Mi Mix then never made its way to India. The market is now full of bezel-less competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, LG G6, LG Q6, and iPhone X. The last even got a mention in Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain’s tweet in the form of a #TheOriginalX hashtag.
The regular Mi Mix 2 is available in 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, and 6GB/256GB models at CNY 3299 (roughly Rs 32380), CNY 3599 (approx Rs 35330), and CNY 3999 (about Rs 39250), respectively. The company’s also got a Special Edition 8GB/128GB ceramic unibody variant which is priced at CNY 4699 (around Rs 46120).
