Xiaomi is reportedly working on a new flagship smartphone other than the rumoured Xiaomi Mi 7. The smartphone we’re speaking about is the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. A new report coming in from China cites that Xiaomi is readying the Mi Mix 2S and it may be unveiled at the mega tech show- MWC 2018 next month. The report also highlighted that Xiaomi is yet to finalise the design of the Mi 7 flagship device, which may be the reason for the existence of the Mi Mix 2S.


Well, this is not the first time we’re speaking about the Mi Mix 2S

. A couple of months back, Xiaomi was said to be working on a smaller version of the Mi Mix 2 with a notch on the top. Yes, you heard it right. The Mi Mix 2S, if the report is to be believed to be true will feature a notch at the top, same as the Apple iPhone X.

At the launch event of the Mi Mix 2 in India, Jai Mani, Xiaomi Product Lead said that the company explored the option of adding a notch on the top, but they again decided to go against it as it will take a lot of time for users to get used. But it now looks like the Mi Mix 2S with a notch is under the works.

We also reported an image leak of the Mi Mix 2S, which showed a notch on the top. The notch looks precisely similar to the one present on the iPhone X, and it houses the front-facing camera & sensors. Also, the display aspect ratio is expected to be 19:5:9 and not the traditional 18:9 aspect ratio. However, there’s no info on the display size though.

Also, this new report revealed the specifications of the alleged Mi Mix 2S. The Mi Mix 2S will come with codename Polaris. The smartphone will feature the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 SoC. Xiaomi already confirmed its first flagship smartphone in 2018 will feature Snapdragon 845 chipset,, and everyone assumed it as the Mi 7. However, this new report suggests the Mi 7 will be second Xiaomi flagship smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The Mi Mix 2S is expected to feature 6GB of RAM, and there will be two 12MP cameras at the back. The secondary 12MP sensor might be a monochrome sensor, a first Xiaomi phone to feature the black & white sensor. It is also said that the phone will carry a price tag of around Yuan 3000 in China.

Not just the Mi Mix 2S, this new report also revealed few key details of the upcoming Mi 7. As stated, Xiaomi is yet to finalise the design of the Mi 7, and it will have an 18:9 display on the front. A dual camera setup will be present at the back, and one of the sensors will be Sony IMX363.
