Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Launch Imminent As Mi Mix 2 Receives Price Cut
Xiaomi is expected to make a few announcements at the upcoming MWC 2018. Apart from smartphones, the company could also announce the new Surge S2 chipset as well. That chipset is rumoured to power the Xiaomi Mi 6X. However, the marquee announcement was expected to be that of the Xiaomi Mi 7. That fell off the rails a bit and it appears that the Mi Mix 2S could be launched before the Mi 7.
The Mi Mix 2S launch seems more imminent now after the Mi Mix 2 has received a price cut of CNY 800 in China. The Ceramic variant of the Mi MIX 2 is now available at a price of CNY 3899 instead of its regular price of CNY 4699. This could be a possible hint at the launch of the Mi Mix 2S and that the device will be launched in 8GB RAm variant only.
There are rumours that the Mi Mix 2S will be launched before MWC 2018 and will be the first device to be powered by the Snapdragon 845.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S
So far, there has barely been any chatter about a possible Mi Mix 2 refresh. The Mi Mix 2 was launched back in September and Xiaomi doesn’t really launch new variants of flagship devices like OnePlus does. So, a possible Mi Mix 2s launch seems improbable. However, that hasn’t stopped people to post renders of the phone.
An earlier render of the Mi Mix 2s showing a notch on the display looked a photoshopped iPhone X photo. Recently though, a new render has emerged which reveals a design worthy of a new variant.
The image shows evenly trimmed bezels all around the display. The Mi Mix 2 had a small chin which housed the front-facing camera. The front facing camera here is placed in the top right corner. It is fitted awkwardly which results in a weird notch on the top right corner. Although this looks like a design prototype that would’ve been buried in the back burner, the design does look like new and different.
We could see the launch the Mi Mix 2S happening in the coming weeks especially since MWC will begin on the 26th of February.
