Xiaomi unveils gorgeous, edgeless Mi Mix Chinese smartphone startup Xiaomi has unveiled their new Mi Mix smartphone, quite easily the best-looking device released in 2016.
The phone, developed with product design genius Phillippe Starck, has a 6.4-inch edgeless body, meaning no bezels on three sides. Additionally, the body is made entirely of ceramic, giving it a premium feel unlike other devices on the market.

Because of its bezel-less design, the Mi Mix has a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3 percent, crushing the iPhone 7 at 67.7 percent and even the Pixel XL at 71.2 percent. To get such a high level, Xiaomi got rid of the physical earpiece speaker and sensors that most smartphones employ, going with a piezoelectric ceramic driver for the speaker instead and an ultrasonic proximity sensor, both of which are behind the glass.

Of course, such a screen comes with a caveat; the selfie camera. The module has been moved to the bottom half of the device, meaning it will take a little getting used to.

Full specs:

6.4-inch 2040 x 1080 pixel display
2.35GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor
Your choice of 4GB RAM + 128GB storage or 6GB RAM + 256GB UFS 2.0 storage
4,400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support
16-megapixel rear camera
5-megapixel front camera
High-precision GPS with sensor-assisted positioning

As with all Xiaomi devices, it will be available in Asia only.

China only huh.......what a damn shame!

Xiaomi tauts its product line and the USA seems to gravitate toward Xiaomi more than others so not releasing for the USA just hurts the hell out of the Chinese manufacturer.

No doubt a political decision or a 'red tape-infested' decision.

Even unlocked, this phone won't take advantage of the FULL SPEED of USA networks..........PERIOD!

You are damn right! Xiaomi phones are the best but their lack of proper antennas for USA is just poor judgement.

fire burning.
