Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S With 12MP Dual Rear Cameras Announced

However, there are some notable updates, including a new processor, a new dual-camera system, and wireless charging.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S comes with a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with 2160 × 1080 pixels resolution, 18:9 aspect ratio, and DCI-P3 color gamut. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 processor paired with Adreno 630 GPU for graphics. The Mix 2S uses Sony's new IMX636 sensor, featuring larger 1.4um pixels and dual-pixel technology, which allows for better low-light shots. Xiaomi says that the AI mini has access to 35 million books and songs and also comes with smart-home integration.

Futures: Android 8.1 (Oreo) with MIUI 9, Dual SIM (nano + nano), Fingerprint sensor and Dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11ac dual-band (2×2 MU-MIMO ), Bluetooth 5, GPS/GLONASS/Beidou, NFC, USB Type-C.

Xiaomi retains the same design language of Mi MIX 2 on the Mi MIX 2S. The selfie cam is set to 5Megapixels, mounted at the front bottom, resembles Mi MIX 2.

The Mi MIX 2S features a full ceramic build with a glass front and rear. It packs 3400 mAh battery with support to QuickCharge 3.0 and 7.5W Qi wireless charging. The phone is revolutionary because it's the first flagship to offer camera performance close to the big brand flagships like Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X.

The Mi Mix 2S is also shipping with support for augmented reality experiences. One is a 12-megapixel wide angle lens with f/1.8 aperture while the other is a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture.

Personally, I love the Ceramic White model but the black one looks pretty good too. It's also worth noting that Xiaomi's rear cameras earned a score of 97 through DxOMark testing, which means it tied with cameras like the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and Apple's iPhone X.

The Mi Gaming Laptop becomes available starting April 13.

The Mi Mix 2S also has vertically-aligned dual cameras on its back - a distinct upgrade from the the Mi Mix 2's single camera. The company has opted to include support for Google's ARCore so the device can run different apps from the Play Store that are becoming more and more popular.

Price-wise, the Mi AI Speaker Mini will be made available with a price tag of CNY 169 (about RM 105).
