Leaked banner of Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S reveals an all-display aesthetic and powerhouse internals

Xiaomi is expected to launch the Mi MIX 2S in the place of the Mi 7 at the Mobile World Congress later this month. As per a newly-leaked banner, the upcoming device will arrive with a 5.99-inch full-screen display, Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8 GB RAM, and 256 GB storage.

We previously reported that Xiaomi is not bringing the high-end Mi 7 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018 later this month, but launching the Mi MIX 2S in its place instead. While many doubted the phone's existence previously, the latest reports regarding the Mi MIX 2S suggest that it is indeed happening. A week ago, the device surfaced on the AnTuTu benchmarking database, revealing a Snapdragon 845 chipset under the hood and a massive score of 270461 points. If that's not enough to convince you of its existence and its powerhouse status, the newly-unearthed, official-looking banner might do the trick.

The leaked banner shows the Mi MIX 2S's front fascia with almost non-existent bezels and a tiny cutout on the top right side meant for the selfie camera. Looking closely at the image, you can see the barely-visible earpiece strip on the smartphone's remarkably thin forehead. The capacitive buttons, as well as the fingerprint scanner, can now be found on the screen as the bottom bezels were trimmed down. For starters, the impressive design language the Mi MIX 2S is sporting is called the full-screen design 3.0.

Fortunately, the exceptional, all-display aesthetic will be coming with top-of-the-line internals. As what was aforementioned, the most powerful Snapdragon 845 processor will be at the heart of the Mi MIX 2S. It will also sport a 5.99-inch display as per the leaked banner. It is expected to pack 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory storage. Other rumors state that the device features a dual 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 rear snappers. For sure, new details will emerge in the coming days to fill in the gaps as we are nearing the MWC. As soon as that happens, we will be sure to inform you.
