Another Xiaomi hit in 2018
Xiaomi, the biggest Chinese smartphone manufacturer has recently launched their new flagship device- MI Mix 2S. This year alone Xiaomi has made a killing with the launch of the Red MI Note 5/5 Pro (RedMI Note 5/5Pro review) in the Indian market and also their MI LED TV.
And here’s comes the MI MIX 2S the successor of last year’s Mi Mix 2 that won the award of best design.
The device has a 5.99inch DCI-P3 LCD screen with 1080x 2160pixels and an aspect ratio 18:9. The back of the device has two camera lenses- one 12 MP with a f/1.8 aperture and a f/2.4 aperture.
The body is carved from Alumina and ceramic but Xiaomi is said to have plans of crafting their coming devices with Aluminum only. Corning gorilla glass 4 is bundled on the surface for protection.
Just as the MI MIX 2 the Mi Mix 2S has no top notch but instead the selfie camera is housed at the bottom of the screen.
It’s important to note that unlike most top flagship phones in the mobile industry, the MI MIX2S doesn’t have water resistance capabilities.
The device measures 5.94 x 2.95 x 0.32 inch and a weight of 191g. With no headphone jack MI MIX 2S uses a USB-C type of headphone adapter.
The MI MIX 2S runs on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo but on top of it is a MIUI 9.5 Operating system. The MIUI, Xiaomi’s own operating system tends to borrow some iOs features which maybe quite confusing to android lovers.
Also the device is one of the few powered on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.
MI Mix 2S has two variants, one with a 6GB and the other with an 8GB RAM. The internal memory can either be 64/128/256GB but not expandable whatsoever.
Similar to the Red MI Note 5Pro the device has dual camera at the back. Both back cameras have a resolution of 12MP with varying f/2.4 and f/1.8 apertures.
More so the main camera on the back has OIS (Optical Image Stabilization capabilities. Additionally, the camera is coupled with an Artificial Intelligence for improved features.
The selfie camera has a 5MP resolution switching between f/2.0 and f/1.4 apertures.
The device is powered by a 3400mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery. The phone has also wireless charging capabilities.
