Mi Mix 2s launched: old, design, new dual camera and specs

Xiaomi has quite unusually launched a refresh of the Mi Mix series merely six months after the launch of the Mi Mix 2. The Mi Mix 2s was teased by the company quite a few marquee features starting in February. But today, on March 27, all is revealed. The Mi Mix 2s is endorsed by popular actor Chris Wu, who will also be the poster boy of the product, Xiaomi announced at the launch event.

The Mi Mix 2s continues its lineage of bezel-free design from its predecessor and comes with minimal bezels. There was considerable confusion regarding the aesthetics and looks of the upcoming flagship. The leaked mini-notch design was how many imagined the device. As much as we would have wanted to see it in the flesh, it is not real. Well, not after so many notch designs already. Also, the bezels have not been trimmed any more than they already were on the Mi Mix 2.

The Mi Mix 2s features the cutting-edge Snapdragon 845 SoC which Lei Jun himself said was not easy to procure. It has a 6.01-inch Full HD+ display.The handset also has a dual camera setup and AI facial recognition built-in the device. There’s a 12MP telephoto lens and a 12MP wide-angle lens combo. The telephoto lens is the Sony IMX363 sensor with 1.4µm. It also comes with Dual Pixel autofocus. All these features have been teased earlier. The selfie camera retains its previous position on the bottom chin. Xiaomi’s event was largely dedicated to emphasizing on how they have improved the cameras both on the front and the back. Here’s how Xiaomi described the dynamic bokeh effects of the Mi Mix 2s through a video.

The Mi Mix 2s runs on Android Oreo flavoured with MIUI 9. And Xiaomi unveiled a voice assistant like Google Assistant called Xiao AI. The Mi Mix 2s has a 3,400mAh battery which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 technology.

    Heard anything about the front camera? They didn’t speak about it. 🤷

    Guess it’s the same 5mp shooter.

    Xiaomi has done it right this time, dual cameras, more ram, large storage option, held the cheap price, newest android, facial recognition, they reduced the bezels, more screen to body ratio, wireless charging artifical intelligence, snapdragon 845. Real deal. I’ll wait for a good deal and buy the Kings edition.

    You might agree with me or not but I still think that original mi mix pro has the best design to date. They should have had updated internals from sd 821 to 845, better camera and Waterproof=dream phone for many of us…
