Xiaomi’s latest installment in the Mi Mix series sees another impressive innovation that adapts a “surround screen” effect that showcases a display wrapped around the entire smartphone called the Mi Mix Alpha.
The entire device is made of screen; even the sides are digital, which display network signal, battery levels, and more. Volume control utilizes pressure-sensitive buttons on the side as well as a 108-megapixel camera sensor co-developed alongside Samsung able to produce 27-megapixel images in low light. The rear of the device doubles as a viewfinder when using the camera for a selfie, meaning the rear camera will be able to produce selfies of the same resolution.
Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, 5G connectivity, 12GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, 40W wired fast-charging, and a 4,050mAh battery. Xiaomi’s concept smartphone will be produced on a small-scale and is expected to go on sale in December for 19,999 CNY (approximately $2,800 USD).
