In late September, Xiaomi introduced the Mi Mix Alpha concept smartphone with a panoramic display. Which is located on the front side and side faces, and also almost completely occupies the cover. Initially, the company did not plan to sell the device, but already at the end of February the device still went on retail, and a few days later Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha Smartphone got to a review by the famous blogger Markus Brownley.
The key question that the author of MKBHD asked before the review was the purpose of the display located on the backside. During operation, Mi Mix Alpha displays a clock and a notification on both sides of the device.
Due to the lack of side hardware buttons. It is necessary to control certain functions of the device using digital ones located on the curved display of the side faces. The only hardware button located on top is responsible for turning the smartphone on and off.
Xiaomi used in the Mi Mix Alpha a vibrational method of transmitting sound through the display glass. The phone has an in-display fingerprint scanner. Xiaomi refused to take a selfie camera, so the main module is used to take pictures of oneself. As for the rear screen, it allows you to take a selfie.
At the moment when the user turns the smartphone with the back to him, the front of the screen turns off. The weather widgets, clock, timer, player and voice recorder are displayed. While the charging animation looks unusual. The smartphone is gradually filling with green, and this is impossible not to notice.
In addition, Marcus noted that the smartphone feels very heavy. And its use not easy due to the slippery display covering it. Controlling the volume and lock buttons works incredibly poorly.
However, do not forget that Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha Smartphone is just a prototype, and a user who is ready to give $2830 for it should be ready for surprises.
