Xiaomi recently announced a new version of its Mi MIX 2S smartphone — the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Emerald Green. While the phone went on sale via flash sale on 14th August, the company has now announced that the phone is officially available for purchase in China without a flash sale.
However, the Jade Art Edition, which comes with a different wallpaper and packaging, is still out of stock after it first went on sale on 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.
Apart from the changes in the phone’s design, there’s nothing different compared to the standard model. It features a 5.99-inch IPS LCD Full Screen 2.0 display that offers a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, 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, launched earlier this year, is the first phone in the series to feature a vertically aligned dual camera setup. It boasts a 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 wide-angle lens with f/1.8 aperture 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 device also comes with support for 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.
