The long wait is over! While it’s been confirmed and teased several times since its global launch in September, Xiaomi fans in India will finally be able to get their hands on the brand’s borderless flagship, the Mi MIX 2.
The Mi MIX 2 was officially launched in New Dehli today, making India the first country outside China to officially get the highly anticipated sequel to the original Mi MIX.
No longer a concept phone, the Mi MIX 2 will be available in a special preview sale for Mi Fans on October 17 at 12NN (GMT +5:30) on Mi.com and Flipkart. The 6GB + 128GB variant will retail for INR 35,999 (US$ 550).
Fans who’ll miss the event can still get the phone starting first week of November through Mi.com, Flipkart, all Mi Home stores, Mi Preferred Partner stores, and Large Format Retail Partners.
Xiaomi is already India’s leading smartphone brand online and the second-biggest overall (including online and offline) in Q2 2017, according to IDC.
Per IDC, Xiaomi, currently number five globally in terms of shipments, is also the fastest-growing smartphone brand at 58.9 percent year-on-year growth, ahead of Samsung, Apple, Huawei, and OPPO.
Xiaomi India tells GadgetMatch there are no plans of selling the more premium ceramic edition yet.
