The highly anticipated Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s is in the news again, this time around an official-looking banner housing the renders and specification of the expected flagship have leaked. The leaked banner surfaced on Weibo this weekend and while we are not sure it is officially from Xiaomi, the renders and specs bear some similarity to previously leaked ones.
The Mi Mix 2s is expected to pack a Snapdragon 845 flagship chip and that is contained in the said banner. Also listed is a 5.99-inch display which is a full-view display with highly reduced bezels compared to the Mi Mix 2. The device is also tipped to come with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage which may likely be on one of the variants. There should be a 6GB RAM-packing variant as well.
Perhaps, the most interesting aspect isn’t the 8GB RAM but the renders which reveal a full-screen design 3.0. The front render shows a higher screen-to-body ratio than what we had seen on previous full-screen phones. It really does take the edge-to-edge display concept to a whole new level. There are side bezels but the top and bottom bezels are much reduced than the Mi Mix 2. The front camera is also moved from the bottom right corner to the top right corner creating a slight notch at the edge. Other details contained in the leaked banner include a dual 12MP rear camera with Sony IMX363 sensors and since there is no rear fingerprint sensor, the device is tipped to pack an under-display fingerprint sensor and facial recognition. There is also listed an AI technology onboard which powers the facial recognition algorithm. We can’t say if these details are accurate but we really hope they are because they make the Mix 2s look quite interesting to look forward to. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s is rumoured to be unveiled before MWC 2018 but no word from Xiaomi yet in that regard.
