After teasing the launch of a new variant of Mi MIX 2S, Xiaomi has today officially announced a new Mi MIX 2S Emerald Green color variant. The smartphone will be available for purchase in China from 14th August.
Xiaomi partnered with Dunhuang Research Institue to jointly develop this new Mi MIX 2S Emerald Green variant. The company says that it was inspired by the natural gemstone color of the Dunhuang murals.
While there’s a change in the design, the phone’s specifications remain the same. It features a 5.99-inch IPS LCD Full Screen 2.0 display that offers a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The screen delivers 18:9 aspect ratio and carries support for DCI-P3 color gamut.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with Artificial Intelligence Engine (AIE). The Emerald Green variant of the Mi MIX 2S packs 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
The Mi MIX 2S is the first phone in the series to feature a vertically aligned dual camera setup. It features an f/1. 8 aperture 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 wide-angle lens as the primary sensor, which is coupled with a 12-megapixel secondary telephoto lens that carries support for 2x optical zoom. There’s an 8-megapixel selfie camera with artificial intelligence features.
The front camera of the Mi MIX 2S also works as face unlock feature. There’s also a fingerprint reader on the back panel for added security. The connectivity features available on the device include dual-SIM, USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and NFC.
It comes with built-in AI-based voice assistant. Running on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box with the company’s own MIUI 10, the handset is fuelled by a 3,400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support.
