Xiaomi has not confirmed if the Mi Mix 2s is on its way, but we already know a lot of details about the upcoming high-end smartphone. A new leaked video suggests Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2s could come with an iPhone X-like gestures to navigate the interface. OnPhones has uploaded a hands-on video, which cannot be confirmed as authentic. The video depicts what appears to be the Mi Mix 2s.
Since the phone doesn’t feature a home button, it relies heavily on gestures, just like the iPhone X. In fact, the approach is similar to the iPhone X. For instance, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen to use the app switcher on the Mi Mix 2s. If the video turns out to be real, it would mean Xiaomi has abandoned the fingerprint scanner from the Mi Mix 2s.
This, of course, is not the first time we’re hearing that the Mi Mix 2s won’t include the fingerprint scanner. Evidently, Xiaomi plans to add a new in-display fingerprint scanner, making it the second smartphone to come with such feature. Last month, Vivo became the first company to launch a phone with an in-display fingerprint scanner, though that device is yet to come to India.
A lot has been said about the Mi Mix 2s for a while. The all-screen smartphone is claimed to be one of the first few phones to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor. Based on the recently leaked information, the Mi Mix 2s will sport a 5.99-inch FHD+ (2160 x 1080) 18:9 display, up to 8GB RAM, either 128 or 256GB storage, dual cameras on the back, and a 3400mAh battery. The phone will run Android 8.0 Oreo with the company’s MIUI layer atop. Previously XDA Developers had posted confirming that Mi Mix 2S was indeed a real device and had based this information on firmware details.
The report also indicated that Mi Mix 2S will come with a dual rear camera. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s will succeed the original Mi Mix 2, which was launched in September in China. The latter smartphone, which has an edge-to-edge display, costs Rs 32,999 in India.
