Xiaomi Mi Mix – Release date, specs and pricing

The Xiaomi Mi Mix took the internet by surprise as it had many crazed Android users in awe. The “bezel-less” smartphone is what they are calling it, and by the looks of it, I agree with them. You may not be familiar with the brand since Xiaomi is based in China but with the craze and attention it’s been getting since it’s release date, we expect it to soon to hit the market.

The phone will be available in China on November 4 and will come in two models. One, housing 4GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, will sell for 3,499 yuan, which converts to about $510, AU$680 or £420. A premium model with 18-carat gold embossing and 256GB onboard storage will cost 3,999 yuan. That’s approximately $590, AU$770 or £480.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix will sport the front facing camera towards the bottom of the device where most of the “chin” is located.

In order to accommodate the lack of a top and bottom bezel, where the speaker for making calls usually is, Xiaomi is using what it calls a “piezoelectric ceramic actuator” to deliver voice calls to your ears. It’s not the first phone to operate with a tiny bezel though, with Sharp going the same route in 2014.

Other cool technology innovations include using an ultrasound sensor to replace the proximity sensor, and this works from behind the display like the actuator. Xiaomi has also included a palm rejection system, as you’ll likely accidentally touch the screen when holding it.
