New ad for the Mi Mix 2S shows off Xiaomi's new Xiao Ai virtual assistant

Late last month, Xiaomi introduced its high-end Mi Mix 2S handset. This is definitely a muscle phone powered by the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, carrying a pair of 12MP cameras on back (one features a wide angle lens, the other comes with a telephoto lens). The phone comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The "King" variant is packed with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage.

The Mi Mix 2S also debuts Xiaomi's new Xiao Ai virtual assistant. The manufacturer has produced a new commercial for the Mi Mix 2S that shows Xiao Ai in action. You don't have to know Chinese to understand the ad, thanks to the subtitles on the screen. You might note plenty of similarities between Xiaomi's digital helper, and Google Assistant, especially the multi-colored bars used by both.

The Xiao Ai will stream music, translate menus, set alarms and timers, give you traffic reports, send texts, open apps, activate the camera and much more. To see the latest virtual assistant in action, watch the ad by clicking on the video at the top of this story.

While we don't expect the Mi Mix 2S to be offered in the U.S., the company does plan on invading the U.S. sometime later this year or early next year. And any new handset that it does sell in the states could include Xiao Ai. For the time being however, the virtual assistant works with the Chinese language only, and is only available on the Mi Mix 2S.
