Alongside the launch of Mi Note 2, Xiaomi managed to surprise techies all over the world by introducing a ‘concept’ phone featuring an almost bezel-less display. The phone comes with flagship specs under the hood and boasts a 6.4-inch edge-to-edge 1080p LCD display, though the bezel-free design should make its size similar to regular phablets. The phone features a full ceramic body with a glossy feel and has some major design modifications.
It has no earpiece or a proximity sensor on the top and the front camera is dropped down. Xiaomi has replaced the earpiece speaker with a piezoelectric actuator behind the screen. The phone also uses ultrasound for proximity sensor, a feature used in a smartphone for the first time.
Apart from the screen, the Mi Mix hosts a 2.35 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. The phone has a 16MP camera with a fingerprint reader on the back and a 5MP selfie camera. The phone packs an impressive 4400 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, which should last awhile given the screen resolution. Software wise the phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow on top of MIUI 8.0.
Xiaomi Mi MIX will be available in China from November 4th and cost 3,499 yuan (around $516). The phone offers high-end specs and numerous design modifications. Being a concept phone, the Mi Mix might not be available in Nepal anytime soon, though, it remains to be seen how the phone performs in the Chinese market.
