Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s is expected to be the Chinese phone maker's upcoming premium smartphone which is what the rumours suggest. A new leak suggests that the Mi MIX 2s will have gesture controls much like the ones seen on iPhone X. A short video of the Mi MIX 2s shows that it will have the "swipe up and pause" to reveal recent apps screen gesture, a lot like the one seen on iPhone X. The rumoured handset is said to be the next model in the Chinese brand's series of smartphones with full-screen displays.
The video posted by OnPhones on YouTube (first seen on Weico.cc) shows what is reported to be the upcoming Mi MIX 2s in action. While we cannot see the top of the smartphone in the video, the bottom part has a super thin bezel suggesting the presence of a rumoured notch on the phone.
Several reports have suggested a Mi MIX 2s launch at MWC 2018; however, the company hasn't yet sent out any official invites for a keynote. According to rumours, the smartphone will be Xiaomi's first to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. Additionally, the phone is expected to get an 18:9 aspect ratio display, a 3400mAh battery, 8GB RAM, 256GB onboard storage, and a dual camera setup.
The launch details of this upcoming smartphone are currently ambiguous. We might have to wait a few more days, until MWC 2018, to get more information around it.
Earlier this month, an alleged official banner had surfaced on Weibo that shows the design of the upcoming smartphone. If the banner is deemed true, we could be looking at one of the highest screen-to-body ratios on any smartphone. The image also shows a small notch on the top right of the phone for the selfie camera.
