This year, Xiaomi has launched many handsets. But only two of them are categorized as high-end smartphones. If you are aware, we are talking about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S and the Black Shark. The latter is a gaming phone with outstanding features. Let’s forget about it for a moment because the former device has got a special version. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Special Art Edition was uncovered a couple of days ago. And as scheduled, it’s gone on sale this morning.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Special Art Edition has been made jointly with The British Museum. While many are wondering what this means and how it can help the manufacturer to sell more, we have to say the Xiaomi products have been in the spotlight of various museums. Every year, tens of Xiaomi-branded products win design awards. In this sense, the Mi MIX-line handsets are record-holders. The original Mi MIX has already managed to be included in art collections of The International Design Museum (Munich), the Design Museum in Finland, and the Pompidou Centre. At this moment, we can’t say whether the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Special Art Edition will become a museum specimen or not, but those who want to own a customized variant of the current Mi flagship, it’s a great offer.
The key features of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S remain the same. Thus it comes with a Snapdragon 845, 6/8GB LPDDR4X, 64GB/128GB/256GB UFS2.1 storage, wireless charging support, and many more. So the main difference is the golden ring on the rear vertical dual cameras and the words “British Museum” printed on the bottom of the back. Moreover, this phone also comes with a protective shell jointly designed by Xiaomi and The British Museum, as well as a special packaging protection box. According to the official statement, the design of the phone was inspired by the Victorian majolica pottery, and they hope the exploration of technology and art would never stop. It is available only in an 8+256GB memory combinations and costs 4299 yuan ($675).
