Mi Mix 2S: Here's what we know about Xiaomi's big MWC launch

We all know that the Mi Mix 2s is on it’s way, thanks to the numerous leaks and rumours. The phone is now confirmed to be launched at the MWC on February 27. Company’s spokesperson and product management director, Donovan Sung tweeted to reveal that Xiaomi’s bezel-less flagship will be sporting a Snapdragon 845 and will debut on February 27.

The tweet also mentions a mysterious number— 273741, which is supposedly the AnTuTu benchmark score of the phone. If this turns out to be true, the Mix 2S will pack exceptional power inside. As the mighty iPhone X scored 222462 and the Galaxy Note 8 scored 167946 in the same test. 

All that we know so far

The most recent leak was a 12-second video that showed the Mix Mix 2S’s gesture controls and bezel-less display, similar to the iPhone X. The video showed that swiping from the bottom edge of the phone, a task switcher interface appears.

Design-wise, it is rumoured to find a new place for the front camera. While it was found on the chin of the phone on the original Mix and the Mix 2, the company might place it at the top right corner this time around. 

Another interesting feature that caught our eye was the missing fingerprint sensor, which was present on the back of the previous generation phones. It is still not confirmed, but it could also mean that an under-display fingerprint sensor could be incoming.

The phone will also reportedly run Android Oreo right out of the box, and is said to boast similar AI-based scene recognition camera features as the recently-released Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.

In terms of hardware, the phone might pack 8GB RAM with 256GB storage (with more variant) supporting the Snapdragon 845. It also seems that the upcoming phone is going to continue the same trend. Aside from that, it is rumoured to boast a FHD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio will remain the same. Even the battery size is rumoured to remain the same at 3,400mAh.
