The event will shortly begin, so stay tuned!

After launching its second bezel-less smartphone, the Mi MIX 2 in China last month, Xiaomi is all set to bring it to India. Successor to last year s Mi MIX, the Mi MIX 2 also comes with a 5.99-inch edge-to-edge bezel-less display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone also features under the hood upgrades, and top-of-the-line hardware.

We have already reviewed the Mi MIX 2, and are pleased with its design, cameras, battery life and the overall performance. The smartphone will be sold exclusively via Flipkart. In China, Mi MIX 2 prices start at RMB 3,299 (approximately Rs 32,400) for the 64GB storage variant, and go all the way up to RMB 3,999 (approximately Rs 39,300) for the 256GB storage variant.

There is also a limited edition ceramic variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage priced at RMB 4,699 (approximately Rs 46,100). However, it remains to be seen what all variants Xiaomi brings to India. Also, knowing how aggressive Xiaomi gets with the pricing, it wouldn t be surprising if the Mi MIX 2 competes with the likes of OnePlus 5 and Honor 8 Pro. While the pricing and availability details are awaited, follow our live blog to get updates from the event as it takes place.
