Xiaomi is among the biggest names when it comes to the world of smartphone technology. The company has been around the markets for just 6 years, and has shown tremendous growth over the past years. However, their growth in their home country China has stalled and rivals such as Oppo and Huawei have taken over. Xiaomi however, intends to bounce back into the markets soon. The company has released the Xiaomi Mi MIX and the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 smartphones in the markets yesterday. The Mi MIX was announced in a black variant yesterday, but a white variant has now been spotted in leaks.
Xiaomi introducing two new major smartphones on the trot might have surprised a few users. However, the company’s approach has been quite different this time. Xiaomi has, instead of releasing a lower-end device, released two high-end smartphones to ensure that they capture the maximum possible market share in China.

The smartphone comes with a large, 91.3% body to screen ratio. The device comes out with some impressive specs. It comes out in two variants – that of 4GB and 6GB based on RAM. In terms of storage it offers 128 GB and 256 GB of storage space variants.
The Mi MIX features a fingerprint scanner and various other latest generation tehnologies. The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 821 processor, which is the latest generation processor from Qualcomm. The processor was also spotted in the Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.
