Would the future of smartphones be like what we see in sci-fi films, a mere display? We believe the future is here, starting with the full display design on Mi MIX. Its ultra-high screen proportions on a 6.4" display pushes pixels closer to the edge of the phone. This is a massive technological leap from typical smartphones today. Once the display lights up, it feels almost like you’re opening the door to the world, with over 2 million pixels jumping to life.
We explored new frontiers in technology to create an immersive full display design that takes up almost the whole front surface of the phone. We stripped away what traditionally used to exist on the front – the earpiece, speaker, and infrared proximity sensor. We redesigned a front-facing camera that is 50% smaller than typical ones, reengineered a 17:9 display ratio with rounded corners for full content viewing experience, even when soft keys are used.
Mi MIX is when modern day minimalist design meets traditional ceramic craftsmanship. We have selected micro-crystalline zirconia ceramic as the raw material with a hardness similar to sapphire. Under high temperature calcination process, we made it into a full ceramic body that looks and feels great. In the premium 18K edition, we have also included 18K gold rims around the camera and fingerprint sensor, giving that additional class to its full ceramic body.
Both our packaging and protective case adopts the Mi MIX minimalist design philosophy. Each Mi MIX comes with a handcrafted leather case that fits perfect on the all-new Mi MIX.
