Xiaomi Mi Mix series has always exceeded the limits of phone screens and form factors, from the original model that started the bevel war to the sliding Mi Mix 3 without slots last year. Now, just when we are starting to see “waterfall” screens with extreme curved edges, Xiaomi is taking this to a new level with the Mi Mix Alpha.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha certainly knows how to catch a couple thousand eyeballs in a single attempt because the Chinese manufacturer has introduced something very interesting for the smartphone industry. The Mi MIX Alpha not only impresses in the hardware pecification department, but also looks surprisingly different and unique from the outside. Here is everything you need to know about Xiaomi’s latest and best flagship.

Xiaomi’s Surround Screen Display Technology
The Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha looks what the company refers to as its innovative surround screen, although we prefer to call it a “surround” screen.The screen-to-body ratio is used to indicate the amount of screen compared to the size of the phone’s chassis. The higher the screen-to-body ratio, the smaller the bevel. The iPhone 11 Pro has a screen-to-body ratio of 82.1% thanks to its large notch. The Mate 30 Pro ratio of Huawei is 94.1%. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus? 91% On Monday, the Chinese company Xiaomi introduced the Mi Mix Alpha, a phone that says it has a screen-to-body ratio of 180.6%.

The only bezel on the phone is a narrow strip on the back that houses the camera settings. Oh, and that camera setup? It combines a 108 megapixel trigger with a 12 megapixel telephoto lens (for 2x optical zoom) and a 20 megapixel ultra wide angle camera.

Mi Mix Alpha Sides
The sides of the phone will show reminders and notifications. The back will be inactive when you are using the phone as usual (that is, using the front display), but it will turn on when you turn the phone over. There you will have a screen that has shortcuts to your most used applications.

When Mix Alpha rotates, the rear camera becomes a front camera. You will use that, the 108 megapixels, to take your selfies.
Mi Mix Alpha Hardware Specifications
The phone works with the premium hardware you would expect. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus CPU, 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. Those are the guts like the Mi 9 Pro 5G, which Xiaomi announced along with the Mi Mix Alpha
Pricing and Availability
Xiaomi states that it aims to start small-scale production for the Mi MIX Alpha at the end of December and the price is expected to start at RMB 19,999, or approximately $ 2815 USD. It is certainly a considerable sum, but it is also likely to occur in very limited quantities. It is exciting to see that such manufacturers are willing to come up with unique concepts of what a future smartphone should look like and we hope that after looking at My MIX Alpha, other OEMs take a step forward and try to produce their own variant. the line.
