Mi Mix 2 - The Perfect Future Phone

Yesterday Xiaomi announced the Mi Mix 2. The original Mi Mix brought storm In the Innovative market and 2 is no brainier. While this time around they went with more practicality design and set a target to sell in many global markets including India.

Mi Mix 2 rectifies some of the issues of the original and drops the concept tag. This new model is smaller and more approachable than the first Mix, and it will eventually be available everywhere Xiaomi sells phones (which, sadly, does not yet include the US). It will first be available in China, with prices ranging from 3299 yuan (about $500) to 4699 yuan ($720).

The display itself is a bright and vibrant LCD panel with wide color gamut and 2,160 x 1,080 pixels of resolution. It has rounded corners and just the scantest of frames above and on the sides of it. The border below the screen is larger, as it houses the front camera (which is now better-disguised thanks to a “super black” lens coating), a notification light, and other electronics necessary to power the panel. The screen itself isn’t as vibrant, bright, or hi-res as Samsung’s OLED displays, but it’s still very nice to look at and perfectly fine in everyday use.

Along the top of the phone is a standard earpiece speaker tucked into a tiny slit — Xiaomi has ditched the fancy but ultimately worse piezoelectric speaker from the first Mi Mix. The Mi Mix 2 does not have a standard proximity sensor to turn off the screen when you hold it up to your ear for a call, but uses an ultrasonic system to accomplish the same effect.

Mi Mix 2 is overall a great Flagship for the given price. It's one of its kind phone build with premium materials and killer specs at killer price. Xiaomi's tradition - "Technology is not Expensive" seems to grow and capture the growing market. While we in India are excited to get the hands on this beautiful phone.
