Xiaomi's long awaited android flagship Mi Mix 2 finally made its debut in India on October 17, but the stocks at Flipkart and the company's official e-store Mi.com/in went dry within minutes after the sale went live at 12:00 pm.

It flaunts a 5.99-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) LCD display having 80.3% body-to-screen ratio and 18:9 aspect ratio, thus guaranteeing rich viewing experience.
