Xiaomi did exceptionally well last year with the release of the Xiaomi MI Max which was one of the hottest phone last year. The phone’s all-screen front with a 91.3% screen-to-body ratio and ceramic construction made it stand out.

But now, just under a year later, Xiaomi is ready to reveal a sequel with another outstanding device the XIAOMI MI MIX 2. Xiaomi has apparently worked with French designer Philippe Starck for the design of the smartphone. In addition to this, the Chinese smartphone maker embedded the top-notch firepower in the device.


Xiaomi also made a few design tweaks to make the phone more accessible, including trimming down the size of the screen, and switching back to an earpiece that actually works. The phone in general is more obviously rounded, actually, in a break from the sharp lines used previously. Xiaomi is once again using a ceramic back, but the mid-frame is made out of aluminum.


The phone comes with a 5.99-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2160 pixels at a PPI of 403 pixels per inch. The Mix 2 has razor-thin bezels on three sides, leading to an immersive display that’s ideal for multimedia consumption.

As for the camera,most phone released in 2017 came with dual camera but Xiaomi is sticking to a single camera in the MI MIX 2.So the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will spots a 12MP rear camara just like the MI 6, and it similarly offers 4-axis OIS and the ability to record 4K video at 30fps. It also comes with features like Dual LED flash, Phase Detection AutoFocus, Handheld Twilight, Square Mode and more.  And like the Mi 6, the camera on the Mi Mix 2 does a great job in daylight conditions, but it loses out on detail in low-light scenarios.

For the selfie camara it comes with a 5-megapixel front shooter which is placed at the bottom bezel, one will still require you to hold the phone upside-down for selfies which is a little disappointing.




The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it comes with 6GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that cannot be expanded.

As for the OS the Mi Mix 2 runs the latest version of MIUI 9, which is based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat. MIUI 9 is packed with some welcoming features, such as the split-screen functionality, which when used on such a large screen, also tends to make multi-tasking easier. Other features include customizable notifications, status bar and themes, dual apps, second space, call recordings, and other Mi features like Mi Drop or Mi Cloud Storage.


The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G. Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Gyroscope and Barometer.

The Mi Mix 2 now uses an actual speaker rather than a piezoelectric ceramic driver on the rear; sound is now piped through a tiny slit on the top edge.It also come with a finger print sensor at the back of the device .


The Mi Mix 2 packs a 3400 mAh battery that easily lasts a day at a full charge. It comes with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge support and takes a noticeable time to charge.
