Highlights

    • Xiaomi might be working on the successor to the Mi Mix 2
    • The alleged smartphone might be named Mi Mix 2S
    • It might feature a notch similar to the iPhone X on top

When Xiaomi launched the original Mi Mix smartphone, the company received high praise. The device was very well received and even gained a successor to it recently, the Mi Mix 2. Despite having slightly watered down specifications as compared to the Mi Mix, the Mi Mix 2 retained the striking looks of its predecessor. Today, a few images of the alleged upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S have been leaked on Weibo.

If the leaked images indeed belong to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, it can be seen that it comes with a notch cut-out on top of the screen, making it look very similar to the Apple iPhone X. The notch on the Apple iPhone X comes with a selfie camera, earpiece, and sensors for facial recognition. However, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S may not feature facial recognition. Instead, the notch on the top may only host a camera, an earpiece and an ambient light sensor. The selfie camera on the bottom bezel of the Mi Mix 2 (initial observations) was a bit disorienting for many. So it won’t come as a surprise if Xiaomi moves the front camera back to the top.

Interestingly, the leaked images of the smartphone don’t show us the bottom of the device. So it could still feature a bottom bezel similar to its predecessors. Currently, there aren’t any specifications for the device available.

We recommend that you take this news with a pinch of salt, as the leaked images don’t contain any visible branding.
