Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Leaked Image Reveals In-Display Fingerprint Sensor
The recently concluded MWC 2018 was devoid of a Xiaomi spectacle. This was, however, expected since the company announced a March event for the launch of the Mi MIX 2S. Over the past few weeks, we haven’t seen a lot of leaked images of the Mi MIX 2S but, a few specifications have been revealed. However, a new image of the device has surfaced which reveals a very interesting feature of the Mi MIX 2S.
The leaked image shows an “Always On” display with a fingerprint image. This suggests an in-display fingerprint sensor, similar to the Vivo X20 Plus UD. The always on display might seem Un-Xiaomi like but, considering this device will have an OLED display, it is believable. Thanks to it being an OLED panel, an always-on display mode won’t consume a lot of battery.
However, the most talked-about feature of the Mi MIX 2S so far has been the notch. Unlike new Android smartphones, Xiaomi will have a different implementation of the infamous notch. The front camera will be housed in a small protrusion on the top right corner. The leaked image shows a smartphone with black bezels and the display is turned off. Therefore, it is hard to gauge whether this a genuine image.
This leak corroborates with a recent report that suggests that the Mi MIX 2S will have Samsung’s OLED panels. If true, the Mi MIX 2S could be one of the best smartphones of this year. It has already been confirmed the Mi MIX 2S will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset.
Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Specs
Most of the specifications of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S are already known. In fact, the company announced that the Mi MIX 2S will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. The smartphone will be launched in China on 27th March. Similarly, the smartphone will have a notch on the right corner, which houses the front-facing camera.
As this is a premium smartphone, we are anticipating 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. This time around, the MIX 2S is expected to offer superior camera performance compared to the Mi MIX.
Unlike the Xiaomi Mi 7, the MIX 2S has a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. The device will have a massive 4400 mAH Li-ion battery with fast charging. However, we are unsure about the wireless charging, as the last two Mi MIX models featured ceramic panel, which doesn’t support wireless charging.
