But wait, there’s more. A decompilation of the camera app revealed AI features like scene recognition. The report states that it is very likely that the Mi Mix 2s will feature a Sony IMX363 sensor which has been rumoured many times before.Other extra features found in the firmware were dual-SIM support, IR balster and an LED light.
The Mi Mix 2s has largely been rumoured to launch at MWC 2018. Some tipsters even believe it will be launched earlier than that. Whichever way it is, we’re glad to hear that it is coming. More likely than not, we’ll have to wait very little to finally witness it in the flesh.
