Last month, Xiaomi launched its edge-less design smartphone called the Mi Mix. Now images of white colour variant are doing rounds on the Internet along with rumours of a new 5.5-inch Mi Mix Nano. The current Mi Mix has a 6.4-inch (2040 x 1080 pixels resolution) IPS LCD display with an impressive 91.3 per cent screen-to-body ratio, and was launched in just a black version. The edge-to-edge device comes with a custom 17:9 aspect ratio.
According to leaks on Weibo, the Mi Mix Nano will come with 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 821 processor and 4GB RAM along with 64GB storage. The leaks also claims a price of 3000 Yuan, and a photo of this supposed Mi Mix Nano was also shared on the site. However, the picture is quite blurry and doesn’t reveal much about the device, so it should be considered with some caution.
Another leak on GizmoChina has images of the Mi Mix in a white colour. For Xiaomi, Mi Mix is still a concept phone, but one that has managed to grab the spotlight thanks to its bezel-less and all ceramic body.
Xiaomi Mi Mix is powered by a Quad-core Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with an Adreno 530 GPU. It is available in two variants – 4GB RAM/128GB ROM and 6GB RAM/256GB ROM. The phone features a 16MP rear camera sensor with an f/2.0 aperture, EIS, dual-LED flash and phase detection auto-focus. The front shooter on the Mi Mix features an 8MP sensor which is at the bottom of the device.
The dual-SIM capable Mi Mix weights 209 grams, and is backed by a massive 4400 mAh non-removable Li-ion battery. The phone is equipped with Quick Charge 3.0 that allows the battery to be charged to 83 per cent in 30 minutes.
Mi Mix smartphone has a ceramic acoustic system, and an ultrasonic proximity sensor embedded inside the display along with a compact front camera. Xiaomi claims this front camera is 50 per cent smaller than other front cameras.
Xiaomi’s Mi Mix might be facing tough competition soon, considering Lenovo’s Zuk Edge smartphone was recently spotted online sporting a 100 per cent screen-to-body ratio design. Other Chinese rivals to both these brands like Meizu and Huawei are also reportedly working on their own bezel-less designs. Even large tech giants like Apple and Samsung are rumoured to be working on similar designs for their upcoming flagships in 2017.
