Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 was one of the heavy-weight champions of Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi in 2017 and the rumors suggest that the phone is going to get another variant at MWC. The new flagship will be called Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s and it is rumored to take bezel-lessness to the next level.

As the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 has a bezel-less front except for the bottom where the camera lies and forces some users to move the device upside down to take a selfie in an ugly way, the company seem to have fixed the problem in the refreshed variant. Xiaomi’s fix for the bottom bezel of Mi Mix 2s is to relocate the front-facing camera to the top right corner, as you can see in render leaked previously.

So our point of focus here is a new video circling online. The video leak by OnPhones shows a working unit of the Mi Mix 2s. Despite the short length of the clip, we can clearly see that phone navigations require the use of gestures, and this is something similar to Apple iPhone X. The video is smartly shot. It doesn’t reveal everything about the phone. We didn’t get to see the top right corner of the phone, where, according to the leaked renders, the front camera will be housed.

Well, this is not all, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s has earlier been rumored to have an iPhone X-like notch but that appeared to be a fake leak, at the end. The Mi Mix 2s is expected to feature an updated chipset as the Snapdragon 845. The 5.99-inch screen will offer a “full-screen display,” and inside the device, you’ll get 8GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage. A dual camera setup is said to be on the back, and the device will be equipped with global 4G LTE bands.

As the MWC is just around the corner so we will know that whether this smartphone of Xiaomi is capable of beating the beast, Galaxy S9 of Samsung. Stay tuned with TechJuice, for more on the MWC.
