Xiaomi today launched its bezel-less flagship device, the Mi Mix 2 at an event in China. Manu Kumar Jain, Vice-president, Xiaomi and Managing director Xiaomi India has now announced that the Mi Mix 2 will be launched in India very soon. However, he did not mention any information regarding the pricing and availability of the device.
Apart from the Mi Mix 2, the company today also launched the Mi Note 3 and Mi Notebook Pro in China. However, there is no information about the Indian availability of the other two devices. Considering that Xiaomi’s budget device, the Redmi Note 4 is the company’s best selling device in India, it would have made more sense to launch the Mi Note 3, a mid range device first.
