It features a new processor, improved camera and banks heavily on AI features.

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. The dual cameras are equipped with Sony IMX363 sensors, and feature Optical Zoom, Portrait Mode, dual pixel autofocus and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). The "regular" Mi 7 is likely to make do with a conventional fingerprint scanner, mounted below its screen or on the back.

On the software side, the smartphone runs Android 8.0 skinned with MIUI 9.5 on the top.

Apart from features which have already been confirmed in the launch, some speculated features include a glass back cover, 5.99-inch screen size, and a glossy finish. The Mix 2S supports fast wireless charging and Qualcomm fast charging 3.0. You can view the entire introduction of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S by clicking on the video at the top of this story.

For starters, the build is made out of ceramic like it has been for the past three generations.

The phone comes in two variants -one with 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage and the other with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

The Mix 2S retains numerous features that won the Mi Mix 2 so many accolades, but also includes some new additions such as dual cameras featuring dual pixel technology, a new processor and wireless charging. For selfies, it comes with a 5 Megapixel front camera. The phone is revolutionary because it's the first flagship to offer camera performance close to the big brand flagships like Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X.

We have been hearing about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S since January this year, and until now, we have come across several leaks and rumors that revealed details about this smartphone. Gone is the singular camera module and in its place sits a 12MP+12MP wide+telephoto dual-camera system. There is also an AI voice assistant to control both the phone and smart appliances.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is launched in two color options - Black and White. The phone has Dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11ac dual-band (2×2 MU-MIMO ), Bluetooth 5, GPS/GLONASS/Beidou, NFC and USB Type-C connectivity. The dual-SIM handset doesn't have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
