Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 was launched in India in October a year ago.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. During the launch event, the company hasn't announced the exact availability date of the handset in India. Earlier, OnePlus followed the same path with its flagship series.

The company boldly compared itself to the iPhone X for all the camera demonstrations. The CPU will be clocked at up to 2.8 GHz and the SoC will come with Adreno 630. Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S has a full-screen display with nearly no bezels on top or on the sides. The original Mi A1 only boasts a 16:9 display but since the market is going towards the 18:9 direction, it's time for Xiaomi to get on the bandwagon. But, things change at the rear as the Xiaomi Mix 2S has a vertical dual camera setup, just like the one on Redmi Note 5 Pro. Xiaomi has increased the autofocus speed by introducing pixel autofocus technology along phase detection system. The main lens has an aperture of f/1.8 and 1.4μm pixels for better low-light performance.

The decision disregarded normal procedures and will add to Palestinian fury and global concern over the diplomatic relocation from Tel Aviv.

Under the hood, a 55 watt-hour battery fuels the Mi Gaming laptop which Xiaomi claims can deliver up to 5 hours of online video, 5.5 hours of local video playback and up to 6.5 hours of web browsing. This has been placed in the bottom right-hand corner on the front, removing the need for a notch. The phone will also gain support for ARCore via a software update. The AI assists the camera to take portrait shots that can implement bokeh effects. The AI scene feature on the phone can identify up to 206 objects and scenes in the frame, and then adjust the camera settings such as colours, contrast, and white balance automatically for better and clearer images. The total score is 97, just behind the Pixel 2 and Galaxy S9+. Also, it looks quite similar to the iPhone X.

One of the biggest additions to the Mi Mix 2S, however, is its reliance on artificial intelligence. The smartphone comes in a variety of versions based on the amount of memory (6GB or 8GB) and storage (64GB, 128GB, or 256GB) you want. It comes with 6GB LPDDR4x RAM with 64GB/128GB of internal storage and 8GB LPDDR4x RAM with 256GB of internal storage. The second camera utilizes a smaller 1/3.4-inch 12MP sensor combined with an equivalent 46mm telephoto lens, but there's no OIS on the Mi MIX 2S's telephoto lens.
