Xiaomi launched the Mi Mix 2 last year as the successor to the original Mi Mix phone. Less than a year later the Chinese company has come up with a tweaked version of the Mi Mix 2 – the Mi Mix 2S. The users were expecting the Mi Mix 3 which is anticipated to launch towards the end of 2018 hopefully. The Mi Mix 2S comes with a better camera, wireless charging and Android 8.0.

AN ANALYSIS OF THE SISTER PHONES
While apparently the two phones do not seem to have stark difference, the Mi Mix 2S comes with better technology than the Mi Mix 2. The former has the Snapdragon 845 chipset which enables it to perform quicker and faster in contrast to the Snapdragon 835 chipset found in the Mi Mix 2.
Xiaomi has crafted the position of the dual lens camera on the top right corner of the Mi Mix 2s, same as it can be found on the iPhone X. The finger print sensor can also be found on the rear side of the phone. In terms of camera quality, the Mi Mix 2 did not satisfy users which is something the Mi Mix 2S dual camera promises to do. A key feature in the Mi Mix 2S is wireless charging which means longer battery usage.
For those of you who might be considering upgrading your phone from the Mi Mix 2 to the Mi Mix 2S, it wouldn’t make much of a difference. It’s best to wait for the Mi Mix 3 for great improvements in Xiaomi’s smart phone category.
