Yet again, two images have surfaced on Weibo revealing the specs sheet of the smartphone. The images are basically screenshots displaying the about phone section of the Mi Mix 2. Starting with heart of the device, it is listed to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 processor under the hood. The yet to be announced Snapdragon 835 SoC has featured in a few rumors earlier.

Besides the fact that it will be a slightly upgraded version of the Snapdragon 835 chipset, not much is known. Well, if the screenshots are to be taken seriously, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 would be the first smartphone to feature the Snapdragon 836 processor.

The screenshots further reveal, the upcoming flagship will adorn a large 6.2-inch display with the resolution of 2960×1440 pixels.

As for optics, the smartphone is listed with a 20MP rear-facing camera, which will probably be the main sensor. We say this as the Mi Mix 2 is likely to come with a dual camera setup on its back. The smartphone is also said to offer 256GB of native storage space.

A huge 4,400mAh battery will apparently supply the energy. Coming to another significant revelation, the Xiaomi phone is shown to feature the latest Android 8.0 Oreo with a touch of MIUI 9 on top.

Speaking of authenticity, the specs line-up of the alleged Mi Mix 2 looks too good to be true. Firstly, as we have mentioned earlier, Qualcomm has not even launched the Snapdragon 836 mobile processor. In addition, Xiaomi's MIUI 9 is yet to get a version based on Android Oreo.


Having said that, we are not tossing out the possibility of some kind of miracle. Whatever the case is, we wouldn't have wait for long to get certain answers. Meanwhile, you can check out the teaser poster for the launch of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
