The Mi MIX 2S is powered by an overclocked Snapdragon 845 SOC coupled with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage, and the body/back plate will be made out of quad-layered ceramic material, which is more resistant to scratches. It will also feature a dual pixel 12 MP camera setup that is capable of recording slow motion videos @120 fps 720p, 30 fps 1080p or 30 fps 2160p.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s flagship was officially announced earlier today with impressive features like quad-layer ceramic surface for the backplate and body, extensive photo/video modes and a hardware configuration that would make competing flagships envious.

The new quad-layered ceramic material is supposed to increase the overall resistance to scratches, but can also break easier if the device is dropped. Specs-wise, the Mi MIX 2s is powered by an overclocked Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. The 5.99-inch IPS display will feature a 2160 x 1080 bezel-less panel with the 2:1 aspect ratio.

The f/2.0 5MP selfie cam appears to be once again located in the lower right, while the rear is getting a 12 MP dual pixel camera setup, which supports multi-frame noise reduction, portrait mode and slow-motion video capture, letting users record footage at 120 fps in 720p, 30 fps in 1080p or 30 fps in 2160p.

This model will also come with a 3,400 mAh battery that can be charged wirelessly. Other features include: Android 8.0, dial SIM, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi and a USB 2.0 Type-C port. Unfortunately there still is no audio jack.

The 8 GB + 256 GB version has an MSRP of ~US$640 (includes a wireless charger), while the 6 GB + 128 GB variant is priced at ~US$575, and shipping will begin later this April.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
