In late 2016, Xiaomi released the Mi Mix: a high end phone with a stunning, bezel-less design, ushering in characteristics now seen on the Galaxy Note 8, LG V30 and iPhone X. Xiaomi beat all these big players to the punch, and is back in 2017 to refine the formula further with the Mi Mix 2.
This is everything you need to know about the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
Check out our Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 review
We've had our hands on the Mi Mix 2 for a while now, and we've loved what we've seen. Be sure to read our full review to get a long-term look at the phone's design, software and usability.
It actually works in the United States
Xiaomi has long been known for offering high-end specs at lower prices than other phone manufacturers, in part because it makes up for this with revenue from its software services in its primary markets. These low prices have made Xiaomi phones attractive for consumers willing to import them, but carrier compatibility has been a mess.
Fortunately, with the Mi Mix 2 that has changed. The phone is fully compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile in the United States, with support for 42 total LTE bands. If you're hoping to use the Mi Mix 2 in your home country, odds are good that it'll work.

The camera is pretty damn good
Xiaomi stuck with a single rear camera this year, rather than follow the dual camera path that other manufacturers have gone down. Despite this, the camera is pretty great: it bests the similarly-priced OnePlus 5 in most daylight and nighttime conditions.
In our comparison with the two phones, the Mi Mix 2 is able to pick up finer details in most scenarios. The front-facing camera is still on the bottom bezel, which is still awkward in third-party apps that use the camera such as Duo or WhatsApp.
There's no headphone jack
If you're interested in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, you'll also be interested in some Bluetooth headphones.
It's available in India
India is Xiaomi's second-largest market, so its only fitting the Mi Mix 2 would be available in the country. The only variant available in India is the 128GB storage/6GB RAM configuration for ₹35,999 and it is available exclusively on Flipkart and in Mi Home stores.
