Xiaomi is set to launch the Mi MIX 2S, an updated version of its flagship bezel-less Mi MIX 2 on March 27. Ahead of the official announcement, Xiaomi has been teasing the device on China’s micro-blogging platform Weibo for the past few days. Plenty of information on the features and specs of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S flagship phone have emerged through its firmware files.
The Chinese smartphone maker has already confirmed that the Mi MIX 2S will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and has even teased the Antutu score of the device. Now, the company is making some shout about the camera with vague text along with images of clapping hands.
Xiaomi has been teasing bits and pieces of information on their official Weibo account, but today XDA Developers has found evidence for new Mi Mix 2S camera features in the firmware: portrait mode, multi-frame noise reduction (MFNR), slow motion 1080p videos at 120fps, and more.
Xiaomi has been consistently teasing Mi MIX 2S camera features like multi-frame image processing and slow-motion video shooting on Weibo. By decompiling the MIUI Camera app of the Mi MIX 2S, the publication has managed to reveal more information on these features.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Camera Portrait Mode
Portrait mode has become one of the integral camera features on handsets featuring dual rear cameras. Since the predecessor Mi MIX 2 came with a single camera, it could not shoot photos in portrait mode. Previous reports have revealed that the Mi MIX 2S will be arriving with dual rear cameras.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Multi-Frame Noise Reduction
Multi-frame noise reduction (MFNR) technology allows the camera to snap multiple shots in quick succession and then superimpose them to reduce noise. It’s available as part of the Qualcomm Spectra 280 ISP in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip.
A minor piece of additional information about the phone’s “AI” capabilities can be seen in the above image. As we previously mentioned, the phone will automatically identify the scene and adjust the camera settings accordingly.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Slow Motion Enhancements
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 offers 720p video recording at 120fps for slow-motion videos, but according to the MIUI Camera APK and file
media_profiles_vendor.xml (which outlines the encoding settings), the Mix 2S will offer 1080p at 120fps (default) and 720p at 240fps.
