The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s will launch “at some point in 2018” and it will land with Android Oreo, indicating it will launch prior to the release of Android P in Q3 during 2018.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s will ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 CPU, an 18:9 aspect ratio display, and a 3400 mAh battery. It will also feature dual-SIM support, an IR blaster, LED light and Xiaomi’s MIUI skin.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s will also feature some new AI features for its camera, just like the Huawei Mate 10. The sensor is said to be a Sony IMX, so it should be rather impressive.
Not much else is known about the handset, there haven’t been any leaks of the design just yet, but it will likely feature some improvements on the already very-solid design of the original Mi Mix, which did the whole edge-to-edge display before the iPhone X and the Essential Phone.
As for price, again, nothing is known about this just yet; it’s likely to be expensive, more so than most Xiaomi phones, but it will still likely be A LOT cheaper than Apple’s iPhone X (and pretty much every other high-end phone).
Whichever way you slice it, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s will definitely be an impressive handset. It will look good, feature great specs, and pack in some decent features – things like AI for the camera.
The only issue I personally have with Xiaomi phones is that the software is a bit squiffy. I’d prefer a stock configuration, but that’s about it – everything else is brilliant.
