In a recent tweet, Xiaomi’s official Spokesperson Donovan Sung unveiled the upcoming Mi MIX 2S, along with a short message about the device:

As you can see, the device will run the bleeding-edge Snapdragon 845 – the latest and greatest from Qualcomm. The Mi MIX 2S will join the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus as the first devices to run the Snapdragon 845. Sung also confirmed that the device will release on March 27th, though he revealed little else about the device.
Mi Mix 2S Theories and Hypotheses
Android Authority muses that the Mi MIX 2S may have similar specifications to the current Mi MIX 2. That stands to reason, given the “-S” branding, which has come to designate an incremental update of an existing smartphone. In addition, AA also hypothesizes that the number in the mysterious image Sung tweeted could be a reference to the Mi Mix 2S’s AnTuTu score – a score of 273,741 would put it squarely atop the AnTuTu rankings, handily beating out Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus’ current-best score of 217,385.
We’ll find out more in the coming days, I’m sure – possibly even by the end of MWC.
