Xiaomi has released another video teaser of its Mi MIX 2s smartphone, which will be launched on March 27. Yesterday’s video highlighted the absence of the ‘notch’ on the smartphone, and the latest teasers demonstrate its AI features.

The videos have been released on Weibo, and feature famous painters and their artwork. The first teaser is set to the tune of Johann Strauss’ Voices of Spring, and features faces of renowned artists such as Van Gogh, GSMArena notes. The AI-enabled camera is shown to be capable of identifying elements in a given painting. The teaser shows the faces of the artists, and an unlock symbol, hinting at the possible implementation of facial recognition-based authentication process.

The second teaser shows off the camera’s scene identifying prowess. Famous paintings are shown with a corresponding symbol to suggest the scene-recognition capabilities. The camera feature should offer the right camera settings based on the environments, such as landscape, buildings, people, pets, and a waterfront.

The Mi MIX 2s is said to be a slightly improved variant of the Mi MIX 2, which launched last year. In its second-generation, the smartphone is likely to retain the aesthetics from its predecessor, but feature a slightly thicker bottom bezel.

It is speculated to pack a 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC will be paired with up to a whopping 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. The smartphone is further likely to pack a dual-camera setup at the back. It is expected to be fueled by a 3,400mAh battery with support for wireless charging.
