Nevertheless, it’s a concept phone that you can actually buy. Xiaomi’s Mi MIX is all about its awesome edge-to-edge display. The phone as fine as the Mi MIX may change the formula of that Chinese smartphone market which is heading in the wrong direction.
It’s the stunning handset, Mi MIX designed by Philippe Strack, shuns bezels with an edge-to-edge display that covers more than 1% of the front surface area. The display measures 6.4-inch1080p LCD screen on the diagonal, but the bezel-free design should make it feel like a smaller phone. On top two round corners present, and without using the old illusion trick, this high-end device from Xiaomi also features a glossy full ceramic body and buttons, with no earpiece or proximity sensor, allowing for a cleaner look on the device’s top edge.
Although it has been announced as a flagship phone, it has flagship specs. It seems like Xiaomi took time to build this concept phone.
At the launch of Xiaomi Mi Note 2, the Global VP Hugo Barra has kept Mi MIX under wraps before unveil. There were no leaks about the device earlier. But the rumors surrounded regarding Xiaomi’s Mi Note 2 in two versions; one with curved and one flat. Now both those notes became false news.
