New Delhi, Oct 10 (UNI) Global technology leader Xiaomi today launched a truly full screen display smartphone in India with Mi MIX 2, a evolution of Mi MIX, at a price of Rs 35,999.
While launching the phone, Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India said, “With Mi MIX 2, Xiaomi is set to pioneer the trend of full screen display smartphones in India and redefine the way that users consume content on their devices. The 5.99-inch screen with a 18:9 full screen display delivers a stunning appearance with the screen almost entirely filling up the front surface, allowing content to seemingly pop.”
He said that Mi MIX 2 underscores Xiaomi’s commitment to being at the forefront of technological innovation while making these innovations affordable to the widest possible range of consumers.
Mr Jain said, “With Mi MIX, we gave everyone a glimpse of what the phone of the future would look like. Mi MIX 2 has evolved from a conceptual design into a user-friendly phone catered to a wider consumer audience while retaining the wow factor. We are so proud to have brought Mi MIX 2 for our fans in India within a month of our global launch, and I am sure everyone will love how immersive the experience is.”
Introduced as a concept device last October, Mi MIX delivered an unprecedented screen-to-body ratio that heralded a turning point in the design of smartphones. Mi MIX redefined the smartphone user experience as the first Android-based device with a 17:9 aspect ratio high-definition screen and rounded display corners, which helped pave the way for Google’s Android CDD (Compatibility Definition Document) eventually allowing screen aspect ratios beyond 16:9, as well as rounded display corners.
Mi MIX 2 builds on the foundation of the original concept. It is now 11.9% smaller than Mi MIX. Instead of the piezoelectric speaker solution in Mi MIX, the second-generation uses a hidden speaker that only takes up a thin sliver of space between the top edge of the phone and the screen. At the same time, the front camera remains at the chin and Mi MIX 2 continues using the ultrasonic proximity sensor. This allows the device itself with all the components to fade into the background, while the focus is entirely on the screen.
