Xiaomi has announced yet another price cut for its Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 in the Indian market. The company took to its forums to announced this new price drop. This comes months after the company reduced the price of the smartphone from its launch price of Rs 35,999 to Rs 32,999. This price drop is permanent and it will be applicable on Mi.com, Mi Home and other official partners of Xiaomi including Flipkart. This comes months after the company launched its Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. However, even though the company has announced the price drop, it has not announced any plans of launching the Mi MIX 2S in India.
To recap, Mi MIX 2 was the successor to the Xiaomi Mi MIX, which was launched back in 2017 as a sort of proof-of-concept, and never saw an official launch in India. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
