Vodafone now stocking Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
Following on from the news that Xiaomi has now landed in France and Italy, Vodafone has announced that it will be stocking the Mi Mix 2, exclusively for Vodafone subscribers.
We were excited when we first saw the Mi Mix. This phone certainly gave everyone a glimpse of what was possible. Additionally, it managed to defy everyone’s expectations about phone design as well as pioneering the full screen smartphone.
Then, the Mi Mix 2 raised the bar. Packing a 5.99-inch screen and a 18:9 full screen display, it delivers a stunning appearance with the screen almost entirely filling up the front surface.
Furthermore, it allows for surfing on the Internet at a download speed of up to 600Mbps and an upload speed of up to 100Mbps.
Now, through this most recent launch, Vodafone has became the first operator in the Spanish market to sell a product by Xiaomi.
Mi Mix 2
As you may recall, the Mi Mix 2 was jointly designed with world-renowned designer Philippe Starck. The phone represents Xiaomi’s efforts in pushing ahead with the use of ceramic.
It has a beautiful ceramic back and a four-sided curved design that transitions smoothly into the aluminium frame.
It’s loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB memory. It also uses the latest Sony IMX386 sensor in its 12-megapixel camera. Also, the camera comes with 4-axis OIS for sharper images free of shaky-cam.
Wang Xiang, Senior Vice President of Xiaomi, said:
This new partnership with Vodafone allows us to tap on an even wider consumer group that we believe will truly benefit from our amazing products at honest prices. Vodafone is a leading player and I am truly excited to further grow our business in Spain in partnership with them.Mi MIX 2 showcases Xiaomi’s abilities to push boundaries, and be at the forefront of innovation, while making cutting-edge technologies accessible to everyone.”
