Back in March, Xiaomi launched its Mi MIX 2S flagship smartphone at an event in China. Building upon the bezel-less design of its predecessor, the Mi MIX 2S was unveiled running Android Oreo (with MIUI 9 overlay baked on top) out-of-the-box. Six months later, the smartphone is ready to get its first taste of Android Pie.
According to a report by XDA Developers, Mi MIX 2S users can now download the stable Android Pie-based recovery ROM for the smartphone. The update also includes MIUI 10, the latest and greatest version of Xioami’s custom UI overlay that runs on majority of the company’s smartphones. MIUI 10 introduces features like full-screen navigation gestures, a revamped user interface, and much more.
It’s worth mentioning that Android Pie was made available for Mi MIX 2S as a beta in August, so it took Xiaomi around two months to iron out all the bugs and issues with the new build.
Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage. The smartphone features a 5.99-inch FullHD+ display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and no notch.

The smartphone has all connectivity features, but no 3.5mm audio port. Backing up the whole package is a 3,400mAh battery, with support for both fast charging and wireless charging.
