Xiaomi has revealed a new phone that may have come from its efforts to develop a foldable prototype. It’s called the Mi Mix Alpha, and it’s one-upping the first Mi Mix by having a “Surround Screen” that literally wraps around its body.
Appearance material, Mi MIX Alpha top, and bottom are titanium alloy, sapphire lens camera glass, precision ceramic power button, etc., measurements 154.38 x 72.3 x 10.4mm, weight 241g. The Beijing-based tech company says its screen-to-body ratio is 180.6 percent, and the parts not covered by a display — the top and the bottom of the phone, in other words — are made of aero-grade titanium that’s apparently lighter than stainless steel.
it has another standout feature: a 108-megapixel camera that can capture photos with a 12,032 x 9,024-pixel resolution. That means it’ll be able to take the same quality of pictures medium format cameras are capable of. It also has a 20-megapixel ultra-wide camera with 1.5cm super macro photography capabilities, as well as a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and dual PD focus. The tradeoff is a black band where the camera is mounted that runs vertically across the device, making the backside’s screen a bit smaller than the front.
On the other configuration, the Mi Mix Alpha platform mounted Snapdragon 855+ , 12GB LPDDR4X-2133 Quad the RAM, 512GB a UFS 3.0 flash memory, 4050mAh silicon nano-ion battery, support wire 40W fast charge , 5G Dual SIM (5G frequency band Mobile n41, n79, Unicom n78, Telecom n78), dual-band Wi-Fi (2×2 MIMO), Bluetooth 5.0 and so on.
According to the statement at the press conference, Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha was listed at the end of December at the end of the month, priced at 19999 yuan ($2814.86).
