In my opinion Apple and Samsung should afraid of Xiaomi. This China mobile manufacturer has recently proved everyone that they are able to make something innovative and revolutionary. I think that upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 smartphones may look like the Xiaomi Mi Mix which is very nice bezel-less phone. The screen to body ratio is 91.3%! This is much better result than in case of Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, where the screen occupies only 76.1% of the surface.
A lot of people wanted to buy this mobile even before its official premiere in China and firsts reviews. However, it looks that everyone will have to wait a little longer. The Xiaomi’s production lines have limited capacity and they are able to manufacture 10 000 units per month of this futuristic smartphone. I do not know how many pieces of Xiaomi Mi Mix were ready for its premiere in China, but it was sold out in 10 seconds!
Xiaomi Mi Mix is very powerful flagship smartphone with top components.
I always want to present you the specification of new mobiles, but not this time. The newest flagship mobile from Xiaomi has the well known Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of internal storage. The cameras are standard: 16 MP main and 5 MP front. It is all, if you want to learn more about specification of Xiaomi Mi Mix then you will find this information without any problem. The most important is the fact how Xiaomi was able to manufacture this bezel-less mobile with 91.3% screen to body ratio.
The most innovative feature of Xiaomi Mi Mix is lack of the traditional speaker!
Really, Apple should learn from Xiaomi, because Chinese guys have removed the speaker from their new smartphone. Do you know how it was possible? Xiaomi has developed technology which they have called as ‘cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic’. The digital to analogue converter generates electrical signal which is applied to the piezoelectric ceramic material and it is converted to mechanical energy, i.e. vibrations. These vibrations are released in the metal frame and our ear receives it as a sound. Xiaomi has also implemented ultrasound for proximity sensing, so Xiaomi Mi Mix will know exactly when you hold the ear. Also, the front camera was hidden under the screen.
However, you should be very careful if you buy new Xiaomi Mi Mix smartphone. Unfortunately, small accident happened in one of Xiaomi’s stores in Hangzhou. The brand new Xiaomi Mi Mix has slipped out of hand and it did end well. The screen was broken and also the ceramic body was damaged. You should remember that the 6.4 inch display in Xiaomi Mi Mix is not protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass.
