Huawei P20 Pro steals the DxOMark crown, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S closes in

Apple may have just stolen the spotlight in the tablet market but two Chinese companies are hogging the smartphone stage.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S makes a play for the camera crown

Xiaomi may have started the whole bezel-less craze but it has now been overshadowed by the giants. With the Mi Mix 2S, it’s trying to play a different game, a game that the giants themselves are already playing.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S may have a notch in the corner

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S may have a notch in the corner

History may see Apple as the trendsetter for the notch but Xiaomi should be credited for having gotten the ball rolling on the bezel-less design that gave birth to that notch. The Xiaomi Mi Mix and its Mi Mix 2 successor never adopted the notch and instead resigned to still having some bezel, pushed down to the bottom. The Mi Mix 2S, however, will allegedly have a notch, but Xiaomi will do it in an interestingly different way.
