A leaked video of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S has shown up on the web and in many ways, the design of the phone is better than the iPhone X. For example, you will not have to deal with that notch appearing right in the middle of the phone like it does on the iPhone X. Instead, Xiaomi’s phone designers have applied a more cunning approach.
If you take a look at the video, the notch is actually positioned on the right top corner of the smartphone. This is what will accommodate the camera and other hardware. The reason why this is a smarter approach is that the display surface area will be increased when using the Mi MIX 2S on a daily basis.
Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S: Specifications, Features
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will have an 18:9 aspect ratio, so it can be said that it will have a display resolution of 2160 x 1080. Since the phone will be a higher-end model from Xiaomi, it will be running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
More importantly, the leaked 6.01-inch display size will be large enough to hold a massive battery. A leaked specifications image revealed that the phone will feature a 4,400mAh battery and the company is also going to be generous on the RAM and storage fronts.
A maxed out model is expected to give the user 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. The smartphone will not feature UFS 3.0 standard of storage, but UFS 2.1 instead, which will still very fast and will make the handset very responsive when opening multiple applications. Having 8GB of RAM will be very beneficial when opening up several applications at once too.
After those applications have been minimized and opened up once again, the state of the app will be the same as when you left it at. The Mi MIX 2s being a flagship will also mean that Xiaomi will not present a way to expand that internal storage, but if you are getting up to 256GB storage for the maxed out version, we honestly do not see the point of getting an expandable storage tray.
Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s: Possibly, More Advanced Camera
You can find artificial intelligence in every phone these days. Some have it in the form of a digital assistant such as Siri, Google Assistant, and even Alexa while others rely on hardware-based chips to get that intelligent smartphone experience. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s is one such device that will have an AI camera. This shooter will be able to produce better images and potentially better videos.
In normal circumstances, if you take an image from a normal smartphone, the result will come out as it is and stored in the memory. With an AI camera, the image will be further processed to remove color and light blemishes and produce a more accurate image. For those wondering, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s has been rumored to use a 12MP dual-camera setup belonging to the Sony IMX363, along with 4K video recording support.
The camera orientation is in the same position as the iPhone X because after all, there must have been some manner in which Xiaomi would be taking a tip from Apple’s smartphone feature book.
Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s: Announcement Date
The flagship has been reported to get announced on March 27, with the aforementioned date possibly also hosting the unveiling of the Mi7. There are no pricing details mentioned, but if you take a look at the hardware specifications and features, it is quite obvious that the Mi MIX 2s is not going to be a cheap Android flagship to upgrade to. In comparison to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, it could be slightly cheaper, but only just.
