Xiaomi is reportedly working on refreshing their last year's flagship Mi MIX 2 with a Surge S2 SoC.

According to a Chinese blog IT168, Xiaomi could possibly unveil the Mi MIX 2s at next month's Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) in Barcelona, Spain. However, with in-display fingerprint sensors now a real thing thanks to the Vivo X20 Plus UD, Xiaomi could surprise everyone with an under display fingerprint sensor for the Mi Mix 2S as well. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is no doubt an upgraded version of the flagship Mi Mix 2 which was unveiled previous year. The phone could also feature some sort of face recognition technology in an effort to match the iPhone X. If the Mi Mix 2S is announced before the Galaxy S9, it may become the very first 2018 Android phone to debut with Snapdragon 845 inside, as pointed out by GSM Arena. It's not yet clear whether this phone will be sold outside of China, though. The story has cited a high-ranking company official who says that company will not make any significant announcements at the event. The reason for abandoning the Mi 7 launch at this year's MWC might be to avoid Samsung and its and that are set to launch ahead of MWC 2018.

So folks, that's all we all know so far about the Xiaomi's future plans.

The Mi Mix 2S won't be too different from the original Mi Mix 2, but it will feature some improvements. But a second picture housing the renders of the device appeared on Slashleak (picture below).

While Xiaomi might not officially launch a new smartphone at MWC 2018, we have seen plenty of leaks around its upcoming phones.

With 6 inch bezel-less display, a metal body and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, Mi 7 is expected to be the most expensive smartphone from Xiaomi till date. The Mi Mix 2 had a small chin which housed the front-facing camera.

The Mi Mix 2, though received well by the global tech community, hasn't been able to crack the Indian market.
