The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S’ press conference will kick off in about half an hour, and Xiaomi has arranged for the event to be live-streamed via YouTube, for those of you who would like to keep a close eye on what’s going on. We’ve embedded a YouTube link down below, for your convenience. Having said that, Xiaomi will introduce the Mi MIX 2S in Shanghai, which is a first for the company, as they always announce new handsets and its products in Beijing.
That being said, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S has been leaking for quite some time now, and the company’s brand ambassador, Kris Wu, also confirmed the design of the phone, by releasing several images via Twitter. The company’s CEO, Lei Jun, reconfirmed all that by resharing Kris Wu’s images, so it’s quite obvious that we’re looking at in terms of the design. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will resemble its predecessor, the Mi MIX 2, quite a bit, its bezels will be quite thin, while the thickest of them all will be placed right below the phone’s display. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will be fueled by the Snapdragon 845, that much has been confirmed thus far, and the device will ship with wireless charging, at least according to one of the company’s teasers. Now, in addition to all that, it was confirmed by another Xiaomi teaser, that the Mi MIX 2S will ship with a dual camera setup, unlike the Mi MIX 2, which sports a single camera on its back.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will probably sport a 5.99-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display, and if rumors are to be believed, we’re looking at an OLED panel here. The device is expected to arrive in both metal + glass and ceramic unibody build variants, the former will ship with 6GB of RAM, while the latter will sport 8GB of RAM on the inside. MIUI 9 will ship pre-installed on Android Nougat or Oreo, and the phone will not sport a 3.5mm headphone jack. A Type-C port will be placed on the bottom of the Mi MIX 2S, right next to the phone’s loudspeaker, while a fingerprint scanner will sit on the back of the device.
