Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Release Date & Specification Rumours

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Release Date & Specification Rumours

We've been expecting that the successor to the Mi Mix 2 would be the Mi Mix 3, unlikely to arrive until October, but good news has come sooner than we thought: a new Mi Mix will arrive on 27 March. It's likely to be more or less the same as the Mi Mix 2, but running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor - you can check it out in the video at the top of this page, in which it appears to use iPhone X-style gestures.

This means that some of the rumours we're seeing are potentially linked to the Mi Mix 2S rather than the Mi Mix 3. An early sighting from Concept Leaks may be no more than one of many prototypes, but if it sees the light of day we could see a Mi Mix with a vertical dual-camera at the rear and a central fingerprint scanner (not an under-glass design, as is rumoured to feature on the upcoming Galaxy S9). This updated design also features more rounded corners than previously.

A wallpaper unearthed by XDA-Developers suggests the Mix 2S' screen will be FHD+ (2160 x 1080), an 18:9 panel like that of its predecessor. We expect it to stay at 5.99in. The site also suggests the battery is unchanged at 3400mAh.

There is very little else to go on at the moment, but as a flagship device we would expect the new Mi Mix to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage. We have heard that, like the upcoming Xiaomi Mi7, it could come with as much as 8GB of memory.

We've yet to see Xiaomi use anything higher in resolution than full-HD, and neither has it manufactured any phones that are waterproof or support wireless charging - all areas in which the spec could be improved. Xiaomi has, incidentally, recently joined the Wireless Power Consortium.

As a flagship device we doubt the new Mi Mix will be running Android One like the recent Mi A1, so it will almost certainly come with MIUI 9 preinstalled. However, XDA-Developers suggest it will run Android Oreo out of the box, which means western users won't have to install Google services after purchase.

When is the Mi Mix 2S release date?

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S will launch on 27 March 2018, company spokesperson and product management director Donovan Sung has announced on Twitter.

Mi MIX 2S will use the next generation flagship processor Snapdragon 845. Launching on March 27th! ❤️

When is the Mi Mix 3 release date?

The original Mi Mix was announced in December 2016, with the Mi Mix 2 appearing almost a full year later in October 2017. We wouldn't expect to see a Mi Mix 3 until October 2018.
When it does arrive you won't be able to buy it direct from Xiaomi in the UK, though sites such as GearBest and Geekbuying will be able to ship one over.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
