Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 specs: Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM, and global LTE bands

Xiaomi's Mi Mix 2 builds on the design of one of the most innovative phones in recent years. As is the case with its predecessor, the Mi Mix 2 offers top-of-the-line specs coupled with an evocative design that sees minimal bezels at the top.

The Mi Mix 2 has a 2160 x 1080 FHD+ panel with virtually no borders, with the camera sensor located on the bottom bezel. The phone is powered by the 10nm Snapdragon 835, and the standard model offers 6GB of RAM along with storage options of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

This time around, Xiaomi is adding global LTE bands, making the Mi Mix 2 compatible with networks around the world. Here's a look at the detailed specs on offer with the phone:

  • Idk why but it doesn't sound impressive much
  • This sounds like a device I would like to get my hands on. The thin bezels are looking might good.
  • Best bezel less phone for the price.
  • Lcd nope
  • Seems like a nice package. Lets hope they don't mess it up on the software side. Also this needs to get Oreo fast (hopefully even before release). If so, this could be a great contender for Android phone of the year
  • Less than stellar camera and an LCD are deal breakers
  • **** no micro SD slot
  • It works with Verizon's bands as well.
  • Xiomi has stayed away from pretty much every Western nation. Interesting, they are the world's 5th largest cell phone company... I doubt it really matters in terms of privacy... But I can't see a phone from a private Chinese company as being attractive to many in the West... Area served Selected markets List: China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, India, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Middle East, Ukraine, Russia, Vietnam, Brazil, Poland, Mexico, South Korea, Egypt, Thailand.... lol, good luck if it needs any warranty work.
  • It does all work perfectly for what you worried. Don't know why you make this conclusion.
  • Isn't Mexico technically a western country ?
  • I want more bezel, not less
  • You probably need a Pixel then
  • yes - band 17 and 30 - that's AT&T Hawaii! YES!
  • Bonjour
    Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
    Je ne sais pas lire entre les lignes des fiches techniques.
    Donc questions.
    1/ Quelles sont les dimensions réelles de l'écran ?
    2/ Peut il être rechargé sans fil (induction en QI) ,
    3/ Avec les renseignements de la fiche technique, peut-on savoir si les vidéos /
    musiques / émissions télé et autres pourront-être écoutées avec les hauts parleurs,
    sans passer par les écouteurs ?
    Merci
  • Taille: 151,8 x 75,5 x 7,7 mm
    Ne peut pas être rechargé sans fil
    Ce téléphone n'a pas de protège-écouteurs, mais inclut un câble adaptateur type AUDIO

  • What glass is it? Gorilla, monkey, ape?
  • Water resistance?
  • I tried a friend's for a while when I was in Shanghai last week, it feels good in hand, screen is fine, but it's bad in 2 things, the mi skin that looks ugly in this phone and the camera that is below average. I wonder why mi didn't choose to put the camera setting from the mi 6 or the new note 3 that they perfom much better.
  • I can't believe a phone like this can't shoot 1080p @ 60 frames.
  • I think we need a Essential Phone vs Mi Mix 2 article
  • I am interested and waiting for the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 as I am here in the Philippines so device must work Globally!
