It has become a race as to which phone will be the first to come with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 845 SoC. Earlier reports pointed out that the Samsung Galaxy S9 would be granted that honour and sometime after, we were led to believe that it was to be Xiaomi's Mi 7. A new report now reveals that both of them could be sidestepped by Xiaomi's Mi Mix 2S instead.
The phone, which is tipped to be the successor of the bezel-less Mi Mix 2, will reportedly not feature any drastic change as compared to the latter. However, according to a report by droidholic, the phone will come with Snapdragon 845 SoC and is also believed to launch before MWC 2018 kicks off.
None of these rumours have been officially confirmed by Xiaomi and so at this point all information should be taken with a pinch of salt. According to some other leaked images, as seen on Slashleaks, the Mi Mix 2S could in fact come with a nearly 100 percent bezel-less display making the bezels even thinner as compared to the Mi Mix 2.
The image leaked on the website shows the front camera on the top right corner of the smartphone creating a notch on the top right corner of the smartphone. The back part of the device is almost the same, featuring a fingerprint scanner surrounded by a gold-plated ring and also retaining the ceramic back on the smartphone.
