Xiaomi’s newly announced Mi Mix Android phablet features 91.3 percent screen-to-body ratio at a price tag of ¥3,499 ($516) and will ship from November 4th in its home country (china).
The phone packs the latest Snapdragon 821 chip 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, 192Hz / 24-bit DAC chip for higher-resolution audio. There’ll also be a ¥3,999 ($590) option with 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and 18-karat gold accents around the camera and fingerprint sensor on the rear of the Mix. The battery weighs in at a generous 4,400mAh, the rear camera comes in at 16 megapixels with phase-detect autofocus.
Talking about the design its side buttons are both made out of ceramic. The display is curved at the corners. As this is not your typical style phone so the all the top-mounted sensors have been removed. Ultrasound replaces proximity sensor a piezoelectric speaker which uses the metal frame to generate sound is used to replace your common earpiece speaker and to get that truly flawless look the front camera is placed at the bottom of the phone.
This is truly the future of smartphone design, no surprise we will see more phones like this in future but for now xiaomi’s attempt currently looks very solid and things make sense, but we may end up in having some troubles in the phone or the design once they are out for public.
