After marking visit to the Mobile World Congress 2018, Xiaomi is ready to launch its first top of the range for 2018. The Chinese company is in a very delicate phase of its history: in these months it is preparing the landing in Europe, after becoming one of the largest manufacturers worldwide. In Spain it arrived at the end of last year, while in Italy it should open the first MiStore in the coming months in Milan.

Just in time to see the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S arrive in Italy as well, a new version of the borderless smartphone launched in September 2017 and that the company will present next March 27 in Shanghai. This is not just a simple hardware update, but a radical change that will also affect the design. The bezels will be even smaller, while there are doubts about the position of the front camera. It could be located in the lower right corner (as on the Mi Mix 2) or in the upper right corner and devote all the remaining space to the display. On this fact there are still discordant news and we will find out only on the day of the presentation.
