Developed in collaboration with French designer Philippe Stark, Xiaomi Mi MIX has been launched at the Beijing event on Tuesday, along with Mi Note 2. Its entire body is reportedly made of Ceramic.
Being called a “concept phone” by the makers, Mi Mix will have a 6.4-inch display which is edge-to-edge with a custom 17:9 ratio aspect, hence, no bezels at the top and sides.
Xiaomi says the phone will have a 91.3 per cent screen-to-body ratio and they will be “maximizing the screen space” to give the users a “better content viewing experience.”
Xiaomi has put the front camera at the bottom right corner of the phone, which will rotate on its own when a user wants to take selfies. The company claims this front camera is 50 per cent smaller than other conventional front camera sensors.
Xiaomi Mi MIX is available in two variants – 4GB RAM/ 128GB storage at CNY 3,499 (roughly Rs. 34,500), and 6GB RAM/ 256GB storage (plus 18k gold trim on the rear camera and fingerprint sensor) at CNY 3,999 (roughly Rs. 39,500).
Talking about the specifications, the phone will have 4GB LPDDR4 RAM + 128GB UFS 2.0 storage and 6GB + 256GB version. The battery is 4400 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0. It sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with PDAF, an f/2.0 aperture, and dual-tone LED flash and bears a 5-megapixel front camera.
It also has GPS high-precision positioning, full NFC Functionality and supports Mi Pay. This phone runs the MIUI 8. It ships with a leather case in the box.
An important highlight of the phone is the Piezoelectric ceramic acoustic technology, which basically allows for the conversion of electrical signals into mechanical energy, which then transmits the waves into the ceramic body allowing the user to hear the audio without the need for a speaker.
Xiaomi’s Mi Mix will be debuting in China on November 4. Xiaomi has not announced if it plans to bring this phone to other countries as well.
