Xiaomi has introduced a new futuristic phone that, although its appearance makes us think that it is simply a concept that will never be commercialized, is not so. This is the Xiaomi Mix Alpha that wherever you look, is a screen. With the exception of its lower and upper edges, and an aerodynamic titanium band that houses its three powerful photographic sensors, it is a smartphone with a screen-to-body ratio of 180.6 percent. with a technology called Surround Display A true eccentricity that will even change the way people are made selfies.

Surely, paraphrasing Endgadget, the revelation of the new Xiaomi Mix Alpha could be a response to its own failed efforts – and those of other companies – to develop the prototype of a folding phone. This new terminal is different in some ways. Xiaomi has eliminated the front camera, forcing users to use only the rear camera consisting of three sensors that also developed in conjunction with Samsung: It is a main camera of 108 megapixels (12,032 x 9,024 pixels), an ultra wide angle of 20 megapixels with super macro photography capabilities of 1.5 cm and a 12 megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and dual PD focus. Why go, if you have a powerful rear camera that includes a screen, why include a front. He doesn't need it. It would be absurd, I guess.
The Mix Alpha of course, has also removed the front controllers. Although not quite, these are more non-tactile pressure sensitive buttons. The fingerprint sensor is hidden under the screen and inside it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage memory. It has a 4,050 mAh battery with fast charging of 40W and at the moment it will only be compatible with the 5G bands of China, which is possibly an advance on whether we will soon see it marketed in other countries.
Although, we might think that it is a simple look at the future of the surround phones, Xiaomi ensures that in reality this terminal is already being manufactured although in a “small-scale production” due to its difficult manufacturing process. It will be released at the end of the year and will have an exorbitant price of 19,999 yuan (around 2 thousand 810 dollars).
