For years, Xiaomi has been designing and developing the best smartphones, laptops, tablets, power banks and other gadgets. At the beginning of the year, Xiaomi launched their first Mi store in the Philippines. Seeing that their phones are always of quality, their market is growing. On April 3rd, the company introduced the Mix 2S model. This gadget is a successor of the Mix 2.
The packaging includes one USB Type C cable, one Type C to audio adapter, a US charger, and an eject pin. It weighs 189 grams. The phone uses the MIUI 9 Operating System. It operates with either 2G, 3G or 4G network. 4G is the best as data is transferred at faster speeds, and one enjoys a smooth connection when doing advanced tasks like video calls. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S has two sim card slots; this is good for people who operate with more than one sim card. The phone comes in black and white ceramic colors.
The CPU is Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octa Core, max to 2.8GHz. The GPU is Adreno 630 710MHz. Here comes the best part; The ROM is 64GB and the RAM 6GB. Isn’t this amazing for people who love storing large files? The screen has a resolution of 2160*1080 pixel. The display size is 5.99 inch. The Xiaomi Mix 2S phone supports several audio formats including PCM, AAC/AAC+/eAAC+, MP3, AMR-NB and WB, FLAC, APE, DSD, and WAV. Video formats supported include MP4, MKV, XVID, ASF, WAV, AAC, H.265/HEVC for the main profile, H.264 for the baseline, main and high profile, MPEG4 for the simple profile and VC-1 for the simple main or advanced profile.
Let’s talk about the camera. Don’t we all love taking photos? The front Xiaomi Mix 2S camera has 5.0 MP which can be used to take a 1080P video call with real-time beautify selfie countdown. The back camera’s resolution is 12.0MP. It can record both 1080P and 4k videos at 30fps. Isn’t that lovely? If one wants slow motion videos, the Xiaomi Mix 2S video can record such videos with 720P and 1080P resolution, at 240fps.
Xiaomi Mix 2S supports GPS. It has AI facial recognition, an E-Compass, an ultrasonic proximity sensor, a gyroscope, ambient light sensor, fingerprint, barometer and an accelerometer. Isn’t it great that with this phone one doesn’t have to worry about their location or direction? With these tools, one can navigate to any corner of the town. For anyone who was not sure on what affordable phone to get, I would recommend the Xiaomi Mix 2S. This phone is only a few weeks old in the market, comes at an affordable price and has all the basic features one needs in a Smartphone.
