Is Xiaomi launching a smartphone at MWC [Mobile World Congress] 2018 in Barcelona, Spain? Many people seem to think so.
According to the grapevine, the Chinese manufacturer will announce the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S at the world’s biggest expo for the mobile industry. The device in question showed up once again online, this time flexing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 muscle in Antutu.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, supposedly code-named Polaris, got a benchmark score of 270,461, way higher than the Snapdragon 835-powered OnePlus 5‘s and the Kirin 970-run Huawei Mate 10 Pro‘s. This makes us look forward to the release of more Snapdragon 845 devices even more. Among those we expect to feature the processor — which is said to be is heavily focused on camera and artificial intelligence — are the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
Take note that the latest version of Antutu was used for the test. In that case, you can’t compare the rating to those garnered by older versions. Too bad the company behind the app has not released any ranking yet because version 7 was just released on February 1. But we can expect it by the end of the month.
Not much is known about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. What’s been rumored thus far is that the smartphone will be fitted with the new Sony IMX363 sensor. There may be a notch up top its borderless screen, a la the Apple iPhone X. And it may use facial-recognition technology for authentication purposes. The price is allegedly set at ¥4,000, or roughly P32,466 or $633.
