The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will be announced on March 27, and the device has just made an appearance in a Pacific Rim-themed video clip, which is here as a promotional video for the upcoming Pacific Rim 2: Uprising movie. This video clip has surfaced in China, and at the very end of it, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S appears. You can check out the phone’s design once again thanks to this teaser, and the device’s display is powered on, so you can even check out how thin its bezels will be.
Now, the company’s brand ambassador, Kris Wu, shared several images of the device a couple of days ago, which were reshared by the company’s CEO, Lei Jun. That pretty much confirmed that design of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, this video teaser only reconfirms what we already knew, basically. Having said that, the phone will sport really thin bezels, seemingly even thinner than its predecessor, the Mi MIX 2S. The phone’s display will sport rounded corners, and the thickest bezel will be the one below the Mi MIX 2S’ display. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will not have a curved display, but a curved layer of glass will be included on top of its display, which is quite obvious thanks to the provided video clip. Chances are we will see Corning’s Gorilla Glass included on top of the phone’s display, and pretty much everyone is expecting to see an OLED display on the Mi MIX 2S, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.
It has been confirmed, however, that the device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core processor, and rumors are claiming that the phone will include a 5.99-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display, which means we’re looking at an 18:9 display aspect ratio here. Two cameras will be included on the back of the Mi MIX 2S, while the device’s battery pack will probably be larger than 3,300mAh. The phone may launch in both 6GB and 8GB RAM variants, and it is possible that both metal + glass and ceramic unibody variants will be introduced, as the company did that with the Mi MIX 2 last year. Android Nougat or Oreo is expected to come pre-installed on the Mi MIX 2S, while Xiaomi’s MIUI 9 skin will be included on top of it, no matter what variant of Android ends up being pre-installed.
