Xiaomi is set to launch its Mi Mix 2S on March 27 in Shanghai, China. Ahead of the launch, more leaks and images of the phone have surfaced on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo. New images of the alleged Mi Mix 2S, first spotted by Slashleaks tease its front and rear design. As expected, the front panel is seen sporting a nearly bezel-less display. The top and side bezels are extremely thin, though there’s a noticeable chin at the base. Leaked firmware files of the Mi Mix 2S have hinted the front camera will be placed on the bottom bezel of the phone. The newly leaked images suggest the same, considering the bottom bezel is thicker than the top bezels. The images, however, don’t reveal the front camera details though.
As for the rear panel, the smartphone is seen with the black glossy panel. The glossy rear, most likely glass, also confirms that Mi Mix 2S would be supporting wireless charging. The feature was tipped by Xiaomi itself, via its official Weibo account.
The image show Xiaomi will sport iPhone X-like vertically stacked cameras in the top left corner with a LED flash in the middle. There also a fingerprint sensor placed in the center of the rear panel. Some of the previous rumours indicated that the phone would come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Previous teasers indicated an altogether different design for Mi Mix 2S. A blurry hands-on video of the phone showed the device would come with a small notch on the top-right corner of the display to accommodate the front camera.
Most of the images leaked so far have been contradicting each other. It is possible all of these are prototypes of the upcoming phone. Real renders of the Mi Mix 2S might show in upcoming days as we inch closer to the release date.
Xiaomi has itself teased the Mi Mix 2S over the past few weeks, suggesting the smartphone will pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC, AI Capable Camera and Wireless Charging. Other rumoured specs for the device include a 5.9-inch HD+ display, 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage.
