This is the video Xiaomi is using to make consumers want to buy the Mi Mix 2S

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S was unveiled earlier this week, and it delivers high-end specs starting at the equivalent of $527 USD for the version with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. The top-of-the-line model, known as the "King," comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for the equivalent of $639 USD. With a 5.99-inch display, a Snapdragon 845 mobile platform and an impressive dual camera-setup (12MP+12MP) on back, this might have been a good device to kick off U.S. sales with. However, the company says that its long-awaited U.S. landing will take place later this year, or early in 2019.

This probably wouldn't be the best time for a phone manufacturer from China to launch its first phone on U.S. soil anyway, in light of Huawei's issues. The U.S. government is concerned about the Huawei's close ties to the Chinese government, and is also trying to talk allies into canceling any orders they have for Huawei's networking equipment. The fear is that the company's products are spying on American citizens and corporations. Xiaomi's name has never come up in the media as a conduit to the Chinese government, but in this charged atmosphere they could be found guilty by association and its phones given a wide berth by American consumers.

Anyway, what we wanted to show you is the video at the top of this story. Titled "Get Your Hands on the Mi Mix 2S," it shows off the phone's full-screen display (no notch!), vertically mounted rear cameras, fingerprint scanner and more. Xiaomi expects that those watching the video will immediately want to pre-order the phone, which they can do right now. The Mi Mix 2S will start shipping on April 3rd.

Haven't gotten any XiaoMi phones but am wondering the quality at such price. Don't get me wrong, of course I hope we can get that specs at that price with good quality.

Xiaomi provides best quality for the price range. I have redmi note 4 as a secondary phone (it has such a great battery life) and I think it worth much more than it's actual price.

Umm... don't the journalists at PhoneArena know that this is called an 'advert'? Is English really that hard of a language?

I find it hilarious that 95% of this ad shows the back of the phone, when they are clearly trying to differentiate with the edge to edge display.

I have a redmi note 4, it installs app updates faster then my S7 and has battery life for days solid build and nice design. My first Xiaomi was a redmi note 3 basically the same excellent performance as Note 4 and actually Better chipset. The battery life on these is unbelievable I'm yet to see a phone that lasts as long as a Redmi Note 4. The phone feels so premium for it's price.
