Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, the company's premium bezel-less display smartphone from last year, has received yet another price cut in India. The handset was launched by Xiaomi in India back in October 2017. It had arrived in a single variant in India priced at Rs. 35,999. But, with the latest price cut, the Mi Mix 2 is available for Rs. 29,999. Notably, it is a permanent price drop and is applicable on Mi.com, Mi Home, and official partners such as Flipkart.
The price of the Mi Mix 2 was first slashed by Rs. 3,000 in January this year. It was available for Rs. 32,999. The new price represents a price cut of an additional Rs. 3,000, making it significantly cheaper than its primary competitors at that price point. The Chinese mobile maker made the announcement on one of its forums. Meanwhile, there is still no word on whether the company will launch the Mi Mix 2S in India.
