A spec sheet of Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S recently got leaked, and it spread the rumors of a brand new Xiaomi smartphone. According to some reports, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S is expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress later this month.
The leaked spec sheet shows that the new smartphone would be coming with a full-screen 3.0 design sporting slimmer bezels than its predecessor. The biggest upgrade that Xiaomi will be bringing into its smartphone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It is not just Xiaomi’s but the world’s first handset to pack with a Snapdragon 845 SoC as the Chinese company formed its partnership with Qualcomm December last year. The Mi MIX 2S is speculated to come with an on-device artificial intelligence technology which may lead to features such as facial recognition, somewhat similar to iPhone X.

On the other hand, the display will offer a higher screen-to-body ratio than the previous Mi MIX 2 with a four-sided ceramic unibody and an under-display fingerprint sensor. The Mi MIX 2S will use the new Sony IMX363 camera sensor pegged with dual-pixel autofocus technology. In the Mi MIX 2, the selfie camera was located at the bottom right corner, but the new Mi MIX 2S shifts the camera back to the top right corner. On the interesting feature that might attract the customer is its 12 MP optical zoom dual camera.
Mi MIX 2S is likely to compete against very popular smartphones like the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9. The new model is rumored to cost around INR 41,000 making it the company’s most expensive phone till date.
