After Xiaomi announced Mi Mix 2 earlier last year, the smartphone was pretty well received among consumers. As a result, rumors started surfacing that the Chinese manufacturer has started working on a new model called “Mi Mix 2S” which will mirror iPhone X’s several design features. While over last couple of months we haven’t learned anything related to the development of the device, a recent report by XDA Developers have claimed that the smartphone is indeed in the works.
According to the latest report, XDA recently obtained firmware files which revealed key information regarding the upcoming smartphone. The files confirmed that the smartphone is in the work with codename “Polaris” and will use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 processor, 21:9 display ratio with 2160 x 1080 resolution. Moreover, the smartphone will feature a 3,400 mAh battery to power the device.
As for software, the upcoming smartphone will ship with Android Oreo and support for Google’s Project Treble.
As for design, it’s unclear at the moment if the company will continue its design from Mi Mix 2 or adopt different features. With the report confirming the smartphone’s existence, we will have to wait to find out more as the company is likely to reveal more information in the coming months.
