Believe It Or Not, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Main Camera Has A DxOMark Score Of 101

Well, you heard the rumor and probably caught a glimpse of the top right corner notch of the supposed Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. Well, it does not have the notch (thankfully!). Like the Mi Mix 2, the selfie camera is still at the bottom right. Aesthetically, the device has very subtle changes from its predecessor, but we can’t say the same for what’s under the hood. With Mi Mix 2S, it joins the handful of handsets that is driven by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with the range-topping model sporting a whopping 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Series Touts 18:9 Display, Decent Specs With Budget Stickers

Xiaomi is relentless in turning out new phones (or any product for that matter). The Xiaomi Redmi 5 series is the latest to be announced, just in time to provide the much needed breather from the ever increasing smartphone prices. I was never into Redmi because the design was pretty yucky IMHO. However, the 5 series is entirely different. It has a wee bit of wow factor in the design aspect. Never mind that it looks like a mashup of a Samsung, HTC and iPhone, it is quite pleasing to the eyes – thanks in part to the FullView display that engulfed almost the entire front.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Is ‘Edgeless’, Smaller But Packs Higher Resolution

China’s prolific handset maker (or maker of all things sellable, really) may not be the first to tout bezel-less display, but it was among the first to recognize the potential and hopped onto the bandwagon fairly swiftly with the Mi Mix introduced last year. Nearly a year on, a second iteration was born and like the first, the Mi Mix 2 is beautiful, lent to it by an incredibly expansive display and a unibody ceramic construction. It is again, a product touched by contemporary design maestro, Philippe Starck. Xiaomi may have started out imitating others, but along the way, the company has matured, developing its own vision in the area of innovations.
