Video shows that iPhone X type gestures will be used to navigate the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s?34
Last month, we told you that Xiaomi could introduce a refreshed version of its Mi Mix 2 at MWC. Dubbed the Mi Mix 2s, this would be the latest version of Xiaomi's Mi Mix line. The original generation Mi Mix stunned the world with its near bezel-less look when it was unveiled in October 2016. While the Mi Mix was a proof of concept at the time, the Mi Mix 2 was a mass produced handset released last October.
The Mi Mix 2s will reportedly feature an updated chipset as the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform is expected to be under the hood. The 5.99-inch screen will offer a "full-screen display," and inside the unit you'll find 8GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage. A dual camera setup is said to be on back, and the device will be equipped with global 4G LTE bands. The Mi Mix 2s reportedly will have a four-sided ceramic unibody, and an under-screen fingerprint scanner.
A video that was posted on social media today allegedly shows the Mi Mix 2s in action for a few seconds. Despite the short length of the clip, we can see that navigating the phone will require the use of gestures, similar to the ones used on the Apple iPhone X. We wish that the video showed the top of the handset. That way, we would have been able to see the front-facing camera that is supposed to be located in the upper right corner of the screen in lieu of a notch. Without this identifying feature, we'd suggest taking this video with a grain of salt.
MWC starts a week from next Monday, so we could see some more Mi Mix 2s leaks in the days ahead. Keep checking in, we'll leave the lights on for you.
