Pair of official video teasers reveal the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s and its Smart Unlock feature

Xiaomi has released a pair of video teasers for its Mi Mix 2s handset. Mixed in with scenes that could have come from the upcoming Pacific Rim 2-Uprising movie, the teaser actually shows a young kid as he grows up and learns how to work on robotics. Near the end of the clip, he is hired to join the Mi Mix R&D team. And if you continue viewing the video until the end, you are rewarded with a quick glimpse of the near bezel-less Mi Mix 2s.

The second teaser reveals the facial recognition system that the Mi Mix 2s will use to unlock the phone. Using AI, Smart Unlock will apparently be able to recognize the owner of a particular Mi Mix 2s regardless of how the person's hairstyle has changed. Even a newly grown beard won't be enough to stymie Smart Unlock.

The rumored specs for the phone include a Gorilla Glass protected 6-inch edge-to-edge display, sporting a 1080 x 2160 resolution. That works out to an aspect ratio of 18:9. The Snapdragon 845 mobile platform is under the hood along with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and 256GB of high speed UFS storage. A pair of 12MP cameras adorn the back, and the front-facing camera can be found in a small notch tucked away in the top right hand corner of the display. Android Oreo is pre-installed.

One of the teasers can be found at the top of this story, with the second one directly below. We expect to see the Mi Mix 2s unveiled on March 27th.

I'm quite excited about the upcoming sequel of The Pacific Rim; a movie I deeply enjoyed. Except for the part where (Spoiler) Ron Perlman's character die. In case you're wondering, Ron Perlman portrayed Hellboy in the movies bearing the same name. I didn't think there would be a sequel considering the moderate boxoffice performance. Hope this one does better than its predecessor. Anyhow, while I'm excited about the movie, I can't say the same about this phone! Perhaps if it had stock Android? Oh well, G'Day!

According to official Mi Mix 2s posters, it won't have a corner notch but a small bezel at the bottom again.

I hope its true... Everyone seems to be jumping in the notch bandwagon, most notable Chinese Brands. And... Xiaomi will finally have my respect if it does not copy the notch, but given its track record of copying 'Everything Apple' including The CEO; I doubt that very much! Oh well, only time will tell. G'Day!
