Mi Mix 2 will come with Snapdragon 835, confirms Qualcomm

Putting an end to speculations and rumours, American chipset maker Qualcomm has confirmed that the Mi Mix 2 that will be launched on September 11 will be powered by the company’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.

Earlier reports indicated that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will be powered by the un-announced Snapdragon 836 chipset. Lei Jun, Xiaomi CEO had earlier reported that the Mi Mix 2 is already in mass production, making the possibility of the company using Snapdragon 836 very low.

To recall, the Mi Mix was launched in October last year and it came with near bezel less display and curved edges. It was powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor, coupled with 4GB or 6GB RAM, up to 256GB internal storage and a 4,400mAh battery.

As confirmed by Qualcomm, the device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, clubbed with 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage, along with a 4,500mAh battery powering the device.
