Xiaomi Mi Mix 5G Alpha With Surround Display

Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha 5G concept phone has been officially unveiled. By Xiaomi at the launch event in China on Tuesday, this smartphone of Xiaomi pushes all the boundaries of what can be done with a new look in the innovation of the smartphone/'s display. On the other hand, Samsung or Huawei is making their foldable smartphones, but Xiaomi is not going to take the same path of foldable. Even though some time ago the company has already revealed that they are working on one of the folding smartphones. But Xiaomi takes a sudden U-turn to all the 180% display segment of the smartphones. They use a flexible display in Mi Mix Alpha to offer the Surround Display experience that leads to very fewer bezels on the top and bottom.
According to the Xiaomi, Mi Mix Alpha display wraps around the phone like a gift box and acquires many areas in the entire body. But it barring a stripe at the back of the body where cameras are placed. Xiaomi has confirmed that the device will use sensors and AI algorithms to detect which side and where you are looking in the phone and at that point the light up the screen and show content. And the phone also doesn/'t include any type of physical side buttons in the body as other smartphones have.
Xiaomi said in a statement. A brand-new display that replaces the traditional technology of the earpiece receiver and proximity sensor is placed at the side body of the device and is pressure-sensitive and leverages a linear motor that touch simulates of real buttons.
Among other key highlights, Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha is the company/'s first smartphone with the 108-megapixel which is provided by the Samsung camera sensor and the phone body uses a combination of titanium alloy material, ceramics, and the sapphire for its build the body. As we can not see the inner body of the phone except the back strip so it has to be built with the rigid materials that secure the life of the phone from damage.
