Xiaomi releases Xiaomi MI MIX 2s, sleek design with dual-camera
After much rumors and leaks, the awaited Xiaomi MI MIX 2s has finally been officially released. The phone was set to have a complete screen to body ratio with just a little notch on the one edge of the phone to mark innovative bezel-less design. The final product, however, is not as convincing as the renders a few weeks ago. The selfie camera is placed in the same place just like the previous iterations. The design is somewhat glossy and all the device got was slight design modifications and chipset/camera upgrades.
The "S" iterative of the successful smartphone is already happening over time now. With many companies approaching this method of device upgrades, Xiaomi has been able to set up and refresh the previous device. With the new Snapdragon 845 chipset, the phone will be able to give a tough competition to the current flagship crowd of smartphones.
The notable change is on the back with the dual-camera setup. The device now boasts two 12MP camera, IMX363 sensor under the hood and a second telephoto lens. Xiaomi hasn't been able to deliver one of the finest camera experience in their smartphone. So, this setup seems quite appreciable and most potent cameraphone upto date from Xiaomi.
