Today, Xiaomi has started offering discounts under its New Year Festival sale in China. The biggest discount being offered by the company is on its smartphone Mi MIX 2 Ceramic Edition, which has received a price cut of 500 Yuan (approximately $78). It is now available for just 4,199 Yuan which roughly converts to $657.
Apart from Xiaomi MIX 2, a lot of other phones have also received price cut. The Redmi Note 3 with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage has got price cut of 400 Yuan and now costs 2199 Yuan (~$344) while the recently launched Redmi 5 Plus is now available for 999 Yuan (~$156).
The Redmi Note 5A and Redmi 5X have received discount of 100 Yuan while the Mi Max 2 with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage now costs 200 Yuan less. Further, the Redmi 5A’s pricing is also slashed by 30 Yuan. The company is also offering discounts on some of its accessories.
Coming to the Mi MIX 2, unlike the aluminium alloy frame model which comes with 6GB RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage, the fully ceramic model comes in just one configuration — 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
It features a 5.9-inch Full HD display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The company says that the display has a feel and grip of a 5.5-inch device. Unlike most smartphones which feature narrow bezels, this one is a truly bezel-less smartphone. It is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 835 processor along with Adreno 540 GPU.
The phone features a single camera sensor at the back, which is equipped with a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 lens — the same sensor that was used in Xiaomi Mi 6. It has a dual LED flash, 1.25μm pixel size, f/2.0 aperture and 4-axis optical image stabilization. It also comes with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera that also supports facial recognition.
Connectivity options on the device include Dual SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. It runs on company’s own MIUI 9 based on Android Nougat operating system. The smartphone is fueled by a 3,400mAh battery which also supports Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
This New Year Festive sale from Xiaomi will run from 24th January to 8th February. If you wanted to buy the fully ceramic edition of Xiaomi’s Mi MIX 2, now is a good time.
