Xiaomi Mi Mix: What happens when real devices look so good that it seems to be a concept? Xiaomi’s new Mi Mix Smartphone is the future and with its full ceramic body and edgeless design looks every bit the hype. Smartphone makers around the globe have been trying to make a device without any borders around the screen, and some have even been successful. But those devices lacked in other features. Xiaomi has shown what is possible with the edgeless design. Mi Mix is designed by the famous French designer Phillippe Starck. The design is very subtle, yet looks like one of those devices used in futuristic Hollywood movies. But does the smartphone work on other fronts?
The most notable feature of Mi Mix is undoubtedly the full-HD LCD screen which makes the huge 6.4-inch display panel, and the size is as big as the iPhone 7 Plus. This is the best feature because Xiaomi has not wasted any space. With the phone being as big as the Apple rival, the brilliant design provides more screen space to the user. But wait! The Chinese company gets it even better with the all ceramic body, which as a material is much stronger than glass or metal. Though the company showed off the ceramic body in its earlier Mi 5 device, the Mi Mix reveals the beauty of it.
Look at what Phillippe Starck, the designer has to say:
Xiaomi in its event on October 26, also launched the much anticipated Mi Note 2, yet it is clear that Mi Mix stole the show. With the unexpected launch of the concept smartphone, Xiaomi stunned everybody. Xiaomi showed off its engineering strength with the smartphone. It designed a piezoelectric ceramic driver that can convert electrical signals into mechanical energy. This basically means there is no need of an earpiece, and users can still hear the sound. Yes, there are indeed no bezels in the smartphone. The ‘tenon joint design’ is so good that Xiaomi pieced the smartphone together without using any adhesive.
