There is nothing much revealed in the leaked hands-on video except for the bottom part of the smartphone along with the swipe up gesture to open the recent apps menu, just like the one seen on iPhone X. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S is expected to debut at MWC 2018.
Xiaomi is gradually inching towards its Mobile World Congress event where it is expected to unveil the successor to the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 – the Mi MIX 2S. Earlier reports have already thrown abundant information on what the smartphone may look like along with the features and specifications. Now, a leaked hands-on video of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S leaves nothing to the imagination and shows the device in working mode. Moreover, the leaked video allegedly shows a poster that confirms the device’s name to be Mi MIX 2S.
The video that shows the hands-on functioning of Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S was leaked on Weibo and belongs to a channel named OnPhones that managed to grab a unit of the smartphone. The hands-on video corroborates previous rumours of an iPhone X-style swipe gesture support to enter into the recent apps menu. The video, which is 12-seconds-long, also sheds light on the design of the Mi MIX 2S that will have a bezel-reduced chin and a higher screen-to-body ratio – though without the front camera on the bottom as seen on the predecessor Mi MIX 2. Some earlier reports suggested that the chin of the smartphone will have thinner bezels as the selfie camera has now been moved to be fixed in the top right corner.
There is nothing much revealed in the leaked hands-on video except for the bottom part of the smartphone along with the swipe up gesture to open the recent apps menu, just like the one seen on iPhone X. We will have a clearer look at the full frontal of the device in the coming leaks ahead of the official launch.
As for the specifications, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor – a first for a Xiaomi smartphone, previously reported to be packed in the Mi 7. In addition, the device will sport 5.99-inch bezel-reduced 18:9 display with a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio. It is expected to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo-based MIUI 9 and pack a 3400mAh battery. The smartphone will also be the first Mi MIX series model to come with a dual camera setup where there will be two 12-megapixel Sony IMX 363 sensors.
