The dual-SIM (Nano-SIM) Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 features a 5.99-inch FHD (1080x2160 pixels) 18:9 display with a pixel density of 403ppi and a DCI-P3 colour gamut. The smartphone runs on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It includes 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.

Mi Mix 2 sports an "ultra slim" aluminium frame to ensure that the device is steady and durable. Today Samsung, LG, Vivo and even Micromax offer handsets with nearly bezel-less designs.

In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S8 - which has thin bezels on the top and the bottom - costs Rs 57,900, while the iPhone X is likely to be priced around Rs 90,000. You need to flip the phone upside down to take a selfie and adjust similarly to make a video call. Xiaomi has also removed the piezo-electric speaker that was used in the Mi Mix and went with a usual speaker for the Mi Mix 2's earpiece.

It is fitted with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display that produces an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phone is equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chip and you can fill in the corresponding top-end specs yourself for the rest of the hardware yourself, for such a phone. Xiaomi, in the past, has launched a smartphone over Rs 20k.
