Mi Mix 2S shows off Xiaomi’s Xiao AI virtual assistant


After thousands of leaks, negations, and speculations Xiaomi finally unveiled the legendary Mi Mix 2S on the last month. The new addition to the line of smartphones that really started the race for bezel-less displays came with the best of the industry. That includes the almighty Snapdragon 845 paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage if this doesn’t look enough to you the bigger variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB will sure do.

Curiously, the smartphone was the first Xiaomi’s handset to include company’s AI virtual assistant. Since AI is one of the most recurring themes among manufacturers in the recent years, Xiaomi produced a new ad for the Mi Mix 2S teasing the capabilities of Xiao AI.

Just checking the ad we can notice that Xiaomi’s virtual assistant share some similarities with Google Assistant, mostly due to the same multi-colored bars used by both assistants. According to what we can see, through Xiao AI users can stream music, translate menus, send texts, set timers, and alarms, open applications, activate the camera and much more.

As previously reported Xiaomi has plans for entering US market sometime in this year, would be amazing to see Xiao AI going against another established assistants like Assistant, Cortana and Siri. For the time being Xiao AI functionality is limited to the Chinese Language, but it can have more languages support in the future. For now, let’s keep following Mi Mix 2S reception among consumers.

      They previously stated it’s going to be only available in China.

      Currently it only works with Chinese language. I am a contract employee for Xiaomi and we were told that it probably won’t be available in English until later in MIUI 10 and possibly even 11, but that’s nothing official just rumors within the company.

    I have owned a Mix 2s for a few weeks now, if anyone has any questions about it I would be happy to answer them.

    So far it is one of the best phones I have ever used. The camera is incredible especially for a Xiaomi phone.

      I bought it Mi shop from aliexpress, they postponed me with the delivery twice already. I’m unhappy, I feel like cancelling and getting the p20 pro.

      Most resellers won’t be shipping it until late May from what I have heard. I got mine from Xiaomi themselves after the launch event.

      “We are Xiaomi‚Äôs authorized agent.”

      This line from resellers always makes me laugh. Every reseller uses it, most aren’t really authorized.

      Yeah, they’re such a joke, they told me to wait one more week, if they don’t deliver, I’ll cancel. Balco Do you know of any plans to lunch in Europe, Poland, Spain, UK, Italy, I’ll go there just to buy it.

      Honestly I have no clue. All I know is Xiaomi;s plan for Southeast Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and a few other countries). My current contract is working with Xiaomi to expand into these countries but anything outside of these countries I am not told about it.

      Even with those countries the Mix 2s won’t be launching everywhere. So far Malaysia and Singapore are the only two in Southeast Asia that I have seen officially confirmed. Thailand will most likely get it, I wouldn’t expect Vietnam to get it.

      My phone is running the Chinese ROM which does have English as an option. Most of the Mix 2s that are available on resellers will be the Global ROM (developed primarily for the Indian market) so I don’t know if the AI will even be a part of it.
