The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S was announced the other day, and if you like the device, but would like to save some money at the same time, the Mi MIX 2 is still a great option, and the phone's variant with 256GB of native storage is now discounted on GearBest. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage can now be purchased for $599.99, and it is worth noting that this model of the device is made out of metal and glass, and not ceramic, which makes is noticeably lighter than the ceramic version.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 and Mi MIX 2S are almost identical in terms of the design, the only noticeable difference comes down to cameras, as the Mi MIX 2S features a dual camera setup on the back, while the Mi MIX 2 comes with 'only' one main snapper. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 has really thin bezels, and a 'chin' below its display. The phone's front-facing camera is placed in the lower-right corner of the phone's front side, and the device sports a 5.99-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor fuels the Mi MIX 2, while a 3,400mAh non-removable battery is also a part of this package. Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology will make sure you're able to recharge that battery quickly, and on the back of the phone, you will find a 12-megapixel snapper.
A 5-megapixel camera is included on the device's front side, and the phone does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. This smartphone includes two SIM card slots (2x nano SIM), while Android 7.1 Nougat comes pre-installed on it, along with Xiaomi's MIUI 9 skin. Bluetooth 5.0 is also included here, and so is a Type-C USB port. A loudspeaker sits on the bottom of the Mi MIX 2, and the Black version of the device is on sale on GearBest.
