Rumors that have been swirling since the last quarter of 2017 have claimed that Xiaomi will be launching the Mi 7 as the next flagship phone. However, reports that have surfaced from the beginning of this year hint that Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship phone is Mi MIX 2S and not Mi 7. Yesterday, a senior member from the forum site of XDA Developers was able to find the specs of the Mi MIX 2S through firmware files.
The firmware files belong to a Xiaomi device that is named as Polaris. The rumor mill has already revealed that Polaris is the codename of the rumored Mi MIX 2S. It is running on Android 8.0 which means that it will carry support for Project Treble. It is fueled by Snapdragon 845 chipset and it is packed with a 3,400 mAh battery.
It carries support for Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels along with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Through the MIUI camera app’s teardown, it has been found the handset supports scene recognition. Recent leaks have claimed that the Mi MIX 2S will be housing Sony IMX363 camera sensor. The binaries for the sensor has been found through the teardown of the camera app.
Some of the other features that will be support by the Mi MIX 2S include dual-SIM, IR blaster and notifications LED. The Mi MIX 2S is heavily pegged to get announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 tech expo later this month.
