Previously, the Mi 7 was said to come with an iPhone X-like notch up-top even though it's Xiaomi that started the trend of launching an original bezel-less phone in the name of the Mi Mix.

Like its predecessor, the Mi Mix 2S brings with it a similar ceramic and metal frame design, but thankfully, there is also support for wireless charging to sweeten the deal.

Processor: 2.8GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 845 64-bit 10nm Mobile Platform with Adreno 630 GPU. It includes dual 12MP sensors with the primary 12MP camera (IMX363) having 1.4ɥm pixel size and f.1.8 aperture while the secondary 12MP sensor having 1ɥm pixel size and f/2.4 aperture. Xiaomi has also teased an improved Face Unlock feature for Mi Mix 2s. The selfie cam is set to 5Megapixels, mounted at the front bottom, resembles Mi MIX 2. In terms of RAM and storage, the device comes in three variants: 6GB RAM with 64GB or 128GB storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB storage.

Furthermore, Mi Mix 2 houses a 3400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging. But, things change at the rear as the Xiaomi Mix 2S has a vertical dual camera setup, just like the one on Redmi Note 5 Pro. That means the MIX 2S stores more juice, but is also heavier at 191 grams, compared with 163 grams for the Samsung and 174 grams for the iPhone.

Since the camera is the making or breaking point for most flagship smartphones, Xiaomi claims to have invested a lot of time in the optics of the Mi Mix 2s. Both cameras have 12-megapixel sensors, but one has a wide angle lens while the other has a telephoto (zoom) lens. The high-end variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage is priced at RMB 3,999 and comes bundled with the wireless charging pad.

In comparison, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 features a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution.
