Xiaomi has officially confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s will be unveiled in China on the 27th of March. A new live image of the smartphone has surfaced online, which sheds some light on the specifications of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s. In fact, the leaked image doesn’t say anything new, but it re-assures the already available information.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s might be the third smartphone after the Galaxy S9 and Xperia Xz2 to launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. The specifications of the device are in-line with the other flagship smartphones of 2018.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s has a 6.01-inch 2160 x 1080px IPS LCD display with a corner notch. The main difference between the original Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s is the placement of the front-facing camera. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 didn’t have a notch. However, the front-facing camera was placed on an unusual bottom right corner. Similarly, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s’s camera is on the top right corner, which is an ideal place.
Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. Like the original version, we might not see a dedicated micro SD card slot or a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The device has a dual camera setup with a 16 MP primary sensor. However, there isn’t much information on the secondary sensor.
One thing remains unclear about the smartphone despite the leaked image. The live image misses out on the tiny notch, that we have seen on the previously leaked press renders. Considering the specifications, the Mi Mix 2s looks like a great prospect especially with Xiaomi’s pricing strategy in mind.
