In an event in Beijing, China, Xiaomi has revealed two of its new flagship devices and one of them is the Xiaomi Mi Mix “Bezel-Less smartphone” which might revolutionize the design of smartphones for coming years.
What Xiaomi has done is not completely new, because the tech already existed and before Xiaomi, Sharp has also launched a similar looking device called “Sharp Aquos Crystal” which sadly could not make a big impact because of its shortcomings.
But, Xiaomi has few things going on in its favor. Firstly, Xiaomi brand is very popular not only in China but recently after launching many high-end smartphones at affordable prices in various countries, Xiaomi has established itself as a global brand and secondly, Xiaomi Mi Mix has fixed most of the problems which Sharp could not tackle appropriately.

Talking about the display, Xiaomi Mi Mix comes with a 6.4 inch (2040 x 1080 pixels) resolution IPS LCD display and it has a pixel density of 362ppi (pixels per inch). To make the phone go almost Bazel less, Xiaomi has added an ultrasonic distance sensor inside the device which replaced the proximity sensor on the top. And, for removing the speaker, Xiaomi has come up with “Cantilever Piezoelectric Ceramic Acoustic System” which replaced the ordinary speaker and it is placed inside the device, where the conventional speakers were used to be placed.
Coming to the specs, Xiaomi Mi Max is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with Adreno 530 GPU. It comes in two variants 4GB RAM / 128GB storage and 6GB RAM / 256GB storage.
Mi Mix is equipped with a 16 Megapixel Sony IMX318 sensor with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, 4K video recording and there is a 5 Megapixel front selfie camera which is placed on the front bottom-right of the handset.
The phone runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) operating system and we are quite sure that it will definitely be getting Android 7.0 (Nougat) update. It supports dual SIM slots and has other features like NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB Type-C port.
This android handset is packing a 4,400 mAh non-removable battery which supports quick charge 3.0.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 4GB RAM / 128GB storage variant is priced at 3,499 Yuan which translates to $516 USD / Rs. 34,485/- INR and the 6GB RAM / 256GB storage model will cost 3,999 Yuan which translates to $590 USD / Rs. 39,420/-.
