    Rejoice! Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is a cheap Snapdragon 845 with no “notch”

    I consider the notch (that little chin on the iPhone X) to be an abomination of modern times. It's not a “feature”, it's a design flaw, which wanted to be completely borderless. The solution of Xiaomi protocols for Mi Mix 2S it is elegant and discreet. And best of all… cheap!

    The Mi Mix 2S follows the pattern of the previous model, renewing the specifications. It comes with Snapdragon 845, 6-inch 18:9 screen and two rear cameras. There is a version with 6 GB and 8 GB of RAM, and internal space from 64 to 256 GB.

    Beautiful, simple and straightforward! Oh, forgetting, cheap, very cheap. The prices announced by Xiaomi are that bargain.

    • 6GB/64GB version: 3299 yuan or $527.87 USD
    • 6GB/128GB version: 3599 yuan or $575,87 USD
    • (around BRL 1.762,02)
    • 8GB/256GB Enjoy Version (with Global Bands): 3999 yuan or $639,87
    • (around BRL 2.135,35)

    But it's not time to buy. In pre-sale, the device is much more expensive, around US$ 710 dollars (R$ 2.369,39). So wait until the official launch that happens on the day.

    I even understand the issue of many manufacturers copying Apple and Samsung's design hard. Compared to the two giants, small manufacturers are not able to dictate trends, and they run the risk of being forgotten by the average consumer. But it's good to see that Xiaomi at least gives the consumer the option to buy a top of the line without the notch.
