A few days ago, the most outstanding version of the current Xiaomi MIX series smartphone was officially announced. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Emerald & Jade Art Gift Box is based on the original model. But it comes with an 8GB + 256GB memory combination only. The rest of the key features remain the same. The only thing changed is the box content, the box appearance, the phone’s housing color, and the theme it runs on. At the same time, this variant is priced at 4299 yuan ($677), which is way more than 3299 yuan ($582) of the original model. On the other hand, this emerald version costs as much as the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Special Art Edition launched earlier. It will go on sale starting August 14.
Undoubtedly, the biggest selling point of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Emerald & Jade Art Gift Box is the green ceramic material used to make its housing. According to the official introduction, this color is the lucky color of Dunhuang Feitian. What made it a lucky color that has been passed down through the millennium in Dunhuang? As Xiaomi says, this phone is inspired by the secret of the color of Dunhuang murals for thousands of years. This is also the first colorful ceramic body launched by Xiaomi MIX series.
Actually, the making process of this handset is quite complicated. The machine was jointly launched by Xiaomi and Dunhuang Research Institute. The color of malachite green was chosen, based on the original ceramic variant. The burning process of ceramics and pigments, the ratio, and temperature, etc. are the main difficulties in the manufacturing process.
As we said, the other features remain unchanged. This simply means the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Emerald & Jade Art Gift Box comes with a Snapdragon 845 chip, an AI camera with a 12MP wide-angle lens + 12MP telephoto lens, a 3400mAh battery supporting wireless charging (Qi standard) at 7.5W fast charge option, a 5.99-inch 18:9 LCD full-screen with a resolution of 2160X1080, and many more.
