The Emerald Green Mi MIX 2S is supposed to go on sale tomorrow but a Chinese blog already got their hands on a unit and have provided hands-on photos of the device.
The new color variant is inspired by the Dunhuang Murals. It also has a similar color to the ornamental mineral Jade, which is popular in Asian culture. There are two variants of the Emerald Green Mi MIX 2S. There is the regular variant (above) and there is the Jade Art Gift Box Edition (below).
The only difference we can see between both is that the latter seems to have reproduced versions of the Dunhuang Murals as wallpapers. The Jade Art Edition may also come in a special box. If you can get your hands on a unit, we advise purchasing the gift box edition. It won’t cost you more as both are sold for the same price.
The version in these hands-on images are the regular emerald green edition and it sure looks good. There are not a lot of green phones on the market, so this will definitely turn heads. If you decide to slap a case on it, there is no worry as Xiaomi has included a jade-colored case in the box too.
The bezels on the front of the device are black and on the back, there are gold accents around the dual cameras and fingerprint scanner. There is also an engraving that reads “Mi MIX Designed By Xiaomi”.
The Emerald Green (and Jade Gift Box Edition) Mi MIX 2S comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It is priced at ¥3999 (~$580) and is available on Mi.com.
