Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S to come with Sony IMX363, firmware confirms

It's unclear when Xiaomi plans to launch its next Mi Mix device, or what it'll look like, but it's definitely something to look forward to...

The rumor mill has been talking about the existence of the Mi MIX 2S since the last quarter of 2017.

From what we have been hearing so far, the Mi Mix 2S could be the first Xiaomi phone to feature the Snapdragon 845 SoC. Folks at XDA Forums has now found the device's firmware files that suggest the same; the Mi Mix 2S will indeed powered by Qualcomm's latest flagship processor. Other snippets discovered hint at the possibility of a Sony IMX camera sensor also being on board.

As per the earlier leaked photo on Weibo, the Mi Mix 2s is expected to come with nearly no bezels as it seems to feature full view edge-to-edge display. It is noticeable that the bezels on the top and bottom portions are much thinner compared with those of the Mi Mix 2. If rumours are to be believed, the smartphone could sport a 5.99-inch bezel-less display with a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio similar to Mi MIX 2 but it features a 91.3 percent screen-to-body ratio. Xiaomi could also introduce the Mi Mix 2S before MWC in its home country China.

The dual camera will be a first for the Mi Mix series and it will have some AI features like scene recognition. The leaked renders show a combination of two 12 MP camera sensors mounted at the rear. But for the mid-range market, Xiaomi has the Mi A1 that runs Android One. The publication claims that the firmware is massive, and it is likely to contain more information on the Mi MIX 2S. Interestingly, the upcoming smartphone is now expected to come with faster internet connection speed through the global 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) bands. The second generation Mi Mix 2 was announced late previous year, and for the first time we now have confirmation that a long-rumored successor, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, is indeed real. However, earlier leaks have shown the Mi Mix 2S with a rear-positioned fingerprint reader instead, so this part of the leaked design appears to be questionable. He has begun offering links to OTA update files for some Xiaomi devices, and has shared the Mi Mix 2S firmware files exclusively with XDA-Developers. However, it was previously rumored that the Mi Mix 2 successor will boast Qualcomm's latest high-end chipset, the Snapdragon 845.
