(Pocket-lint) - Xiaomi is about to unveil its new phone.

The company is expected to show off the Mi Mix 2S on 27 March, which happens to be the very same day that Huawei officially unveils its new P20 lineup in Paris and Apple debuts a new, lower-cost iPad at an event in Chicago. If you don't care about those latter two announcements and want to see what Xiaomi has in store, you're in luck, because the whole thing is set to be live-streamed from Shanghai.

Xiaomi's Shanghai event: What can you expect?

Xiaomi will unveil its upcoming Mi Mix 2S, an update to the current Mi Mix 2, at its event. Rumours suggest it will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and wireless charging. If so, it'll be the first phone from Xiaomi to support wireless charging, and it'll be one of just a few phones from a China-based brand to support wireless charging, as well. Other than that, little is known about the phone.
