Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S

In the past, we have seen Sony rolling out the Android N Developer Preview for the Xperia Z3, and recently, Xiaomi announced that its Mi Mix 2S is getting the Android P Developer Preview soon (as early as May 8th tentatively). The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S will get all the new features that are present in Android P. This was announced on the official forum, but the post is now taken down. You can check it out here.

Since the post is now taken down, you might think that this is not going to happen. But, the folks at FunkyHuawei were able to get the official OTA of the Android P Developer Preview for Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S that confirms the fact that Xiaomi is indeed working on it.
