The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will be officially launched in a week. So it’s reasonable to see various leaks concerning this amazing handset. Seems we know everything about it, and the latest leaks only confirm or deny the existence of this or that feature. Say, we have heard the Mi MIX 2S will have an all-ceramic variant. Another leak, we have heard there will be an 8+256GB memory combination. Today, we have got a spotted photo showing/confirming the black all-ceramic Mi MIX 2S with a whopping 8+256GB of storage.
Seems, this leak is going to be true. And when it happens, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S all-ceramic variant will be the strongest in the industry. A quick look at the current flagships coming our way from other top brands show the biggest storage combination is the 6+256GB and it belongs to the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and the Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design. But they cost 7599 yuan ($1199) and 8999 yuan ($1420). We know Xiaomi always comes with the best offers when it comes to the price-over-hardware ratio. So it’s expected the all-ceramic exclusive version will be priced more affordable.
Many can relate the high price tags of the aforementioned models to the continuous price increases of DRAM memory. Say, IC Insights reported in October 2017 that the price of DRAM memory chips rose from $2.45 to $5.16, an amazing 111% increase. As a result, all related fields such as PC, smartphone, laptops, and tablets markets suffered a lot.

But this trend continues for almost half a year. Thus, it’s not anything new. In this sense, last year, Xiaomi launched the all-ceramic variant of the Mi MIX 2 with an 8+256GB memory combination. And it was priced at 4299 yuan ($678) only. It’s the half of the Huawei Mate 10 Porsche Design. So can expect the new model will cost way less than its competitors as well.
At last, we are offering you to take a look at a few apps and space they occupy not to complain of the usefulness of such large storage options. As you can see, Weibo accounted for 86MB, NetEase music 195MB, QQ 144MB, and WeChat was as high as 450MB. Thus, these apps use over 1GB of storage space. Plus, current Android system files easily take up to 2GB. And this list is too long.
