The New Xiaomi Mix
Xiaomi, a household name in China and has been dominating its way to the top of China’s electronics market. They expanded and focused on a range of products from fitness bands to rice cookers. Recently, they unveiled a NEW high end phone dubbed “Mi Mix”. The “edgeless” display was the main wow factor, even captivating attention from Apple and Samsung fans.
The screen to body ratio definitely had us speechless
Take in this stunning edgeless display and prepare for a whole new way to binge watch your favourite shows.
To maximize the screen space, the front-facing camera is moved to the bottom of the screen and has been reduced to half it’s size. Have no fear, your selfies will still be on par with the magic of auto-rotate, with a flip of the phone your camera will work as if it never moved.
Next, we have the “cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic technology.” (Try saying that all in one go.)
Translation: This replaces the traditional earpiece speaker, which allows you to listen to calls without a visible earpiece.
All the sensors are hidden behind-display for an extra stealthy aesthetic.
Mi Mix not only slays in the aesthetics department but is also a beast in terms of specs.
