The design: Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 vs Mi Mix: As an improvement over the predecessor, Xiaomi has swapped a few things in Mi Mix 2. With four-sided curved ceramic body and an aluminum frame, Mi Mix2 looks more charming than Mi Mix with 12% narrower bezel.
However, the screen size is of Mi Mix 2 (5.99-inch) is comparatively smaller than the predecessor putting it back in the realm of ‘normal smartphone size’ as most of the Mi Mix owners were unhappy with its huge size.
Thanks to rounder edges, Mi Mix2 is more comfortable to handle while Mi Mix had sharper edges and it flaunts 18K Gold-plated decorative camera rim.
While Mi Mix had a “piezoelectric speaker” instead of a normal earpiece speaker, but in the Mi Mix 2, this bizarre setup is replaced by a razor-thin earpiece in the top bezel.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Specifications, Review, Price in India
Processor and RAM: As one would anticipate, the Xiaomi MIX 2 comes with flagship specifications to meet its premium design. It features high-end Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset along with 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage.
Camera: With Sony IMX386 sensor (with 1.25um pixels) and 4-axis optical stabilization setup it can shoot 4K or 1080p video at 30 fps, and 720p video at up to 120 fps for slow motion.
Making it a truly global smartphone that can work on almost all the networks in the world, Mix 2 supports 43 bands.
Mi MIX 2 Key features:
18:9 Screen, 5.99″ display
12% reduced chin size
Hidden speaker & proximity sensor
Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM
Sony IMX386 sensor, 1.25μm large pixels 4-axis optical image stabilization
Four-sided curved ceramic body 7-series aluminium alloy frame
Global LTE support, 6 modes 43 bands
Review – What’s Bad in Mix 2: Despite having Quick Charge 3.0 support, powered with 3,400mAh battery Mix 2 fails to meet up the battery backup expectations. Another disappointment is the front-facing camera, which has been more seamlessly integrated into the bottom panel but will still require you to hold the phone upside-down for selfies.
Expected price of Mi Mix 2 in India: INR 32,500
Launch date: Manu Kumar Jain, MD of Xiaomi India, took to Twitter to confirm in a post that the Mi MIX 2 will be launched soon in India. He, however, didn’t share any specific timelines.

- Fair Credit Score: 650-699
- Poor credit Score: 600-649
- Bad Credit Score: below 600
What would be Credit Score if there’s no credit history
What if you never had a credit card or loan before: If you are applying a loan for the first time or applying for a credit card, then in the column of credit score in CIBIL table, N/A will be written. In this situation, the bank will check out your monthly income, bank statement of the previous six months and by estimating your payment capacity, the bank will set credit card limit or can approve or disapprove your loan.
