It is increasingly likely that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 at the end of February. New rumors bring information about its characteristics but also about its design.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Design
The full screen design of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has been defined by the Chinese firm as “Full Screen 2.0”. The leaked specification sheet indicates that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S would have a “Full Screen 3.0” design. This could mean that it would offer an even higher screen-to-body ratio than the Mi Mix 2. The contour image of the Mi Mix 2S suggests that it would be thinner than its predecessor.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has its front camera located in the lower right corner. The “Full Screen 3.0” design of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S repositions the selfie camera in the top right corner. The upper border would also house a speaker. The exact size of the screen is not mentioned, but the specification sheet reveals that it would have a fingerprint scanner under it.
As for the design of the back of the phone, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S would have a unibody ceramic body. The design of the front of the smartphone looks similar to one of the renditions of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S that surfaced recently.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Features
The spec sheet claims that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S would be the first smartphone equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in the world. The SoC should be paired with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM. It could happen with 256GB of UFS internal storage. Like the Mi MIX 2, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S would support all 4G global frequency bands. The datasheet also mentions that it will have a dual 12 MP + 12 MP sensor with optical zoom.
The authenticity of the data sheet is highly questionable because some of the information it reveals does not match the characteristics of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S that have been spotted in recent weeks. None of the rumors about the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S that have surfaced so far has claimed that it would come with a dual rear sensor, nor that the fingerprint reader would be under the screen. Some of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S renderings, which were revealed a few months ago, showed a notch on the iPhone X. What is not the case on the image that accompanies the technical sheet.
These rumors are, like all those already published about the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, to take with tweezers. We have a few more weeks to wait and to speculate on this future Xiaomi smartphone.
