Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s Launch Likely After Mi MIX 2 Receives Another Price Cut
Xiaomi launched the Mi MIX 2s at an event in China, after skipping any major launches at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. Since its launch, the Mi MIX 2s has received a lot of praise for its top of the line specifications and design. However, it has remained a China-exclusive so far with no communication from the company about its possible global launch yet. However, a recent activity regarding the price of the Mi MIX 2 in India suggests otherwise.
The Mi MIX 2 received another price cut which means that it now retails for Rs 29999 in India. The price has been changed on all retailing platforms like Flipkart and Xiaomi’s India website. This suggests that it is a permanent price cut and not a temporary offer. In January 2018, the device received the first price cut which brought its price down to Rs 32999. At a price of Rs 29999, the Mi MIX 2 could be a great buy for users who prefer Snapdragon chipsets over Honor’s Kirin series.
A price cut usually indicates the launch of a newer generation which, in this case, is the Mi MIX 2s. So far, we have not heard anything from Xiaomi about a possible launch. In fact, the company is set to launch the Redmi S2 as Redmi Y2 in India next month. However, it is entirely possible that this price cut is the first step towards a possible Mi MIX 2s launch.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s looks great with its new design and the ceramic body. Interestingly, the Mi MIX 2s also has wireless charging, a feature the OnePlus 6 misses out on. The vertically placed dual-camera setup resembles the iPhone X and it is also worth noting that the Mi MIX 2s doesn’t have a notch. The OnePlus 6 goes on sale in India on May 21st at a starting price of Rs 34999. If Xiaomi keeps the price competitive, the Mi MIX 2s could be a great competitor for the OnePlus 6 in India.
