One of the most important criteria to consider before buying a flagship smartphone is to check if the manufacturer is about to release a new flagship device on the same line. If yes, then you can be certain that you will be saving a few bucks if you exercise some patience to buy the old flagship after the release of the new flagship. This is true for most manufacturer save a few like Apple or Samsung. This situation just happened with Xiaomi Mi MIX 2. Recall that the Mi MIX 2S was released a couple of weeks ago and now, the price of the old flagship MIX 2 has crashed beyond recognition. This smartphone is now sold for 1000 Yuan ($154) less than its previous price but this sale will be available ONLY on April 12. This price cut will get you a decent budget smartphone.
This price cut is applicable to the all-ceramic exclusive version which uses a curved ceramic body on all four sides. Its camera is designed with an 18 Karat gold-plated ring and the whole rounded shape gives it a comfortable grip. In terms of display, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is not much different from the MIX 2s. The MIX 2 comes with a 5.99-inch 18:9 full-screen with a resolution of 2160×1080. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 flash memory. The lights of this smartphone are kept on by a 3400mAh.
