Today, Chinese smartphone giant Xiaomi has launched the Mi Mix 2S, which is an upgrade to the existing Mi Mix 2 and brings more modern design aesthetics, along with better hardware. The Mi Mix 2S has been pricing starts at 3299 Yuan or Rs. 33,000 (approx).
The Mi Mix 2S is truly a flagship when it comes to hardware. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with 6GB and 8GB RAM and so, there are two variants, which also differ in terms of storage- 128GB and 256GB. With these massive storage variants, there isn’t really any need for a microSD card slot.
The Mi Mix 2S will sport a 6-inch full HD IPS LCD display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. In terms of design and build, Xiaomi has gone for an all-ceramic body with curved edges. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S isn’t trying hard to be like Oppo F7 or Vivo V9, because it doesn’t have an iPhone X like notch. However, the front-facing camera is still placed at the bottom bezel, just like its predecessor.
In terms of rear camera, there are dual 12-megapixel rear sensors, among which there is a normal sensor and another is a telephoto lens, just like their Mi 6, Mi Note 3 & Mi A1. They come with the dual-pixel autofocus technology accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash while on the front, the phone has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling and selfies.
The interesting part about the Mi Mix 2S is that there is facial recognition feature on the phone and Xiaomi implemented that using only the front-facing camera. Also, the facial recognition on the Mi Mix 2S seems quite impressive as it can unlock the phone even if the user has grown a beard or is wearing a hat. Another interesting thing about this phone is the support for wireless charging, which is first for Xiaomi and with that, Xiaomi wants to claim the title of a near perfect, completely bezel-less awesome looking smartphone with a premium build.
In terms of connectivity, the phone has 4G LTE, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, and a USB Type-C port and the phone runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with MIUI 9 on top. The Mi Mix 2S packs a 3,400mAh battery.
