As we are heading towards the Mobile World Congress MWC 2018, one of the Xiaomi’s rumoured device seems to become a real product. The Chinese tech leader is slowly building up the hype for its upcoming product Mi Mix 2s that is supposed to compete with Galaxy S9 in many ways if the rumors come true. Interestingly, this would be the first time when Xiaomi decides to refresh Mi Mix series in less than 6-month time.
A recently leaked image of Mi Mix 2s on the Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo, suggests that the smartphone will beat another Xiaomi’s upcoming big gun – the Mi 7 on specs sheet. The banner highlights some of the specifications of the upcoming Xiaomi smartphone. Though, the image is not an official teaser but many tech blogs consider it the real thing.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s is rumoured to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chipset. If that is true, after official unveiling on February 25th, Mi Mix 2s will be the first smartphone to bring Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset under the hood till date, beating Samsung Galaxy S9 to the race. In addition to this, the device is also equipped with an 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
The leaked image further reveals a display sporting Full-Screen design 3.0 with just a small notch for the selfie shooter at the front, surrounded by a Full-Screen 5.99-inch display. The earpiece is placed at the centre similar to the Mi Mix 2; one of the most innovative designs we’ve seen – looking much better than a notch. Moreover, a vertical dual-camera setup, most probably the Sony IMX363, is visible at the back embedded an LED flash in between; making it a unique look.
Other features rumoured to be sported by the Mi Mix 2s are an under-display fingerprint sensor as well as some AI-powered features. The smartphone is expected to be launched on February 25th, right before MWC 2018 in Barcelona.
The specs and design features leaked so far rank the Mi Mix 2s among the top-featured flagship devices of 2018. That’s why we are pretty much interested to see the device at the MWC expo. Do you?
