[Tech News] Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Price, Release Date, Specs

Update: September 5 launch date teased by Xiaomi
Xiaomi is continuously working on expanding its smartphone model range. While rumors have been circulating for some time, the online retailer Gearbest decided to leak the new Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 on its platform before the Chinese manufacturers even had time to officially present it.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: release date and price

Xiaomi has just teased a September 5 launch date for an unnamed flagship phone. It will feature a dual camera, and we strongly suspect it will be the Mi MIX 2 making its debut.
According to Gearbest's leak, the smallest variant of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is priced at  774.93 Euro - which translates to $833 (£649 | ₹53,791).

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2: design and specs

Xiaomi managed to create quite some buzz around the first Mi Mix as it delivered an amazing display-to-size ratio. Up until then, no other smartphone had offered so much screen size with so little bezel. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 seems to take it even further. If the images from Gearbest are accurate, the front panel of the smartphone will just be one giant display - similar to the concept images of the iPhone 8.


According to the data sheet from Gearbest, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 seems to have some strong specs. A Snapdragon 835 processor with 4, 6 or even 8 GB of RAM, plus 128 or 256 GB of memory, a 6.4-inch display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution, a 19 megapixel camera and Android 7.1 nougat. The non-removable battery of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has - according to the online retailer - a capacity of 4,500 mAh.
