Customers Living in the U.S. Can Finally Buy the Latest Xiaomi Flagship, but It Is Not the Mi 8
Even though Xiaomi hasn’t been able to enter the U.S. market yet, consumers living there can now buy one of the company’s best phones. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S has been hailed for its big, bezel-less display, fast performance, gesture navigation, wireless charging, large battery, great camera, and a high amount of storage. Basically, the phone is great on all fronts and there are actually a very few smartphones like it on the market. The phone has recently started selling in the U.S. but there are no carrier locked versions being sold at the moment.
Xiaomi is already popular in Asia and has recently started considering expansion into the West. The company is known for making premium phones and selling them at affordable retail prices. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S is a premium smartphone without that hefty price tag and it touts a ceramic back which is not as prone to scratches as the glass back. The phone has an edge-to-edge display and is nearly bezel-less.
Although the Mi MIX 2S sports an LCD screen and not an OLED one, the display is really sharp and colour accurate according to the specifications. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 845 chip and features 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory that is not expandable, unfortunately. The camera department is also a very capable feature set belonging to the handset that sports a dual-rear camera system.
It may take U.S. consumers some time to get used to the interface called MIUI which contains a lot of useful features. The unlocked variant of the Mi MIX 2S can now be bought from Amazon for $530, which is nearly half the price of the Apple iPhone X. Since it’s a GSM-network-compatible phone, it will only work with T-Mobile and AT&T.
