Xiaomi has launched a new smartphone, MI Mix Alpha. The smartphone is undoubtedly Xiaomi’s one of the most innovative smartphones.
The most interesting part about the smartphone is its display; MI Mix Alpha is the world’s first smartphone to feature a surround-display design — it’s a two-sided display with a 2.15mm thick stripe on the back of the smartphone that houses the cameras. And according to Xiaomi, the design played a key role in achieving a screen to body ratio of 180 percent.
The smartphone rocks a Snapdragon 855 Plus coupled with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. Powering the smartphone will be a 4,050 nano silicone cathode power cell with support for 40W wired fast-charging.
Talking about the camera, the smartphone has a triple camera setup, which includes a huge 108MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX camera sensor. We’re talking about a 1/1.33-inch sensor with a pixel size of 1.6 microns. The setup also includes 20MP ultrawide camera with a 117-degree FoV and a 12MP depth sensor. These camera sensors will be protected by sapphire glass protection.
Xiaomi’s MI Mix Alpha also has AI features. Xiaomi’s AI is smart enough to detect the orientation of the smartphone, and it’ll also play a critical role in performing palm rejection with precision.
We don’t know as to when the MI Mix Alpha will be up for sale but if you’re based in China, you’ll be able to play with the prototype of the smartphone at select MI stores. The smartphone is priced at CNY 19,999 and that translates to $2,812/€2,560/Rs. 1,99,000.
