The all-screen of Xiaomi that started it all now has its third revision, which borrowed the numbering of Apple to become My MIX 2S in place of My Mix 3. The name already gives us to understand that it is a renewed version of the Mix 2, but in the end, are not so all flagships today?
Now that the huge screens have already been settled, Xiaomi has focused on making mobile more competitive in other areas, such as the photo. Arrives the twin camera back and the update components that one might expect in a flagship 2018.
The screen, as always. And without a notch.
The first My Mix us stunned with its screen that seemed to involve almost the entire surface, but after 2017, and part of 2018 in that the reduction of edges has been the protagonist, the concept is no longer so novel. The My MIX 2S capitalized in the the screen of MIX 2 and is focused on improving other aspects.
In the past we have seen images and videos assumptions My MIX 2S with a course notch in the upper right corner, finally the My MIX 2S that will see the light has no notch. The front camera remains at the bottom frame of the phone, and also on the right side and not in the center as it was rumored. In summary, few changes in terms of screen and frames with respect to the My MIX 2.
Reaches the rear camera double, with AI
The chamber was one of the weaknesses of the My Mix 2, and Xiaomi has set a goal to change that in the My MIX 2S. For this purpose he has included in his arsenal a rear camera dual 12-megapixel that borrows capabilities of artificial intelligence to improve your snapshots.
The set consists of sensors, one from Sony and another from Samsung, mounted in vertical. The Sony, the IMX363 with pixel size of 1.4 µm and aperture f/1.8, and the Samsung S5K3M3 with pixels of 1.0 µm and f/2.4. Together they combine to bring you optical zoom 2x and, of course, the portrait mode with background blur that Xiaomi takes the entire week tempting us on Twitter.
Xiaomi boasts of a great performance in low light conditions, making pictures less blurry and with less noise by using a technology that achieves focus much more quickly when the light is insufficient.
What what is the AI for the camera? Xiaomi has taught us a few examples. The background bokeh of a portrait can modify with different and cheer, the camera detects types of objects that you’re photographing to improve the contrast and saturation of the photo, you can improve the resolution of photos to texts, presents translations of texts and conversions of foreign currency directly in the app camera and enables the portrait mode with the front camera.
The front camera remained virtually the same as in the predecessor, with a sensor of 5 MP and f/2.0 aperture, with the only novelty related to the face unlock, here called AI ID Face. It will be interesting to see in our analysis how it works in the day-to-day, taking into account the position of the front camera.
More power, and wireless charging
how could it be otherwise, My MIX 2S incorporates the basic package upgrade of flagship that we can expect during this year. The Snapdragon 835 Mi MIX 2 we went to the Snapdragon 845, and the RAM and storage are maintained, but by adding a version for the most demanding, with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB storage.
The battery maintains the same capacity of 3,400 mAh with Quick Charge 3.0, which now and for the first time in a telephone of the brand, including wireless charging Qi, one of the points that were missing in previous versions. The size, by the way, remains very similar to its predecessor: the difference is just 1 mm in each axis, and about 6 grams more).
