Xiaomi's new Mi Mix 2S may look like the Mi Mix 2, but it comes with a few new features such as rear dual 12-megapixel cameras and wireless charging. It will launch first in China, before being made available to global markets.

Like the Mi Mix 2, the Mix 2S comes with a 5.99-inch display that also lacks a notch. However, Xiaomi is still keeping the front chin where its 5-megapixel selfie camera sits.

You'll have to flip the phone around if you want the best angle to take your selfies.

The two rear 12-megapixel cameras use Sony's new IMX363 sensor, which features dual pixels for faster autofocusing in low light and a pixel size of 1.4 microns. Machine learning can identify stray hair and accessories in portrait shots, so the software won't accidentally blur them out.

The Mix 2S will come in black or white.

Like the original Mix 2 (bottom), the Mix 2S will feature a ceramic back. In a first for Xiaomi devices, the Mix 2S will support fast wireless charging.

There won't be a Special Edition of the Mix 2S this time. Xiaomi did not say why it's leaving out a ceramic unibody model that was featured with the last phone, but it's likely because of how hard it is to get a ceramic unibody made in factories.

The fingerprint sensor is located on the back.

The dual camera slightly sticks out.
