Adjust Comment Print

As numerous leaks had suggested, the new device comes with a thin-bezel display, with a vertically stacked dual camera setup. The main attraction of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is the integration of a bezel-less display coupled with a dual camera mechanism on the rear. And now, the Mi Mix 2S, running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 platform (clocking at 2·8 GHz) with what Xiaomi describes as an AI dual camera, is set to take the brand to an even higher plane.

Xiaomi often likes to keep things fresh and unpredictable, both in the mid-range and high-end smartphone market segments, catching us somewhat off guard with yesterday's Mi MIX 2S announcement.

From the front part, the Mi Mix 2S is not distinguishable from the Mi Mix 2.

Apart from features which have already been confirmed in the launch, some speculated features include a glass back cover, 5.99-inch screen size, and a glossy finish. Mi Mix 2s also comes with support for wireless charging and Face Unlock feature. The phone will come in two colors, black or white, and, unlike with the Mi Mix 2, there seems to be no Special Edition model with a ceramic unibody this time around. The lower variant of Mi Gaming laptop is powered by the 7th Gen Intel Core i5 processor coupled with 8GB DDR4 RAM clocked at 2400MHz and 4GB GDDR5 GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics card. It comes in three RAM storage models: 6GB LPDDR4x RAM with 64GB Storage, 6GB LPDDR4x RAM with 128GB Storage and 8GB LPDDR4x RAM with 256GB Storage. But the rear has changed, if not all, much: a fingerprint scanner was on the same place, then as the camera moved to the upper left corner and is vertical, and a double.

Xiaomi retains the same design language of Mi MIX 2 on the Mi MIX 2S.

Additionally, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S has an AI-equipped voice assistant that can understand almost 100 voice commands.

It will sell for around $15, though it is unknown whether it will be available outside of China.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S will be available in China next week with a starting price of 3,299 yuan or around US$527.

Powering the package is a 3400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology. For the audio part, Xiaomi is including dual 3W speakers with Dolby Audio and Sony Hi-Res Audio support. The wireless charger has been priced at CNY 99 (roughly Rs 1,000).
