It’s like nothing you’ve seen before.
The iPhone 7 is great or whatever, but have you seen some of the things coming out of the Chinese smartphone scene? Xiaomi, which plans to conquer the US market in due time, just launched a phone that is so cool it will make you ashamed of whatever you currently own.
This is the Xiaomi Mi Mix. It’s a 6.4-inch phablet with an edge-to-edge display and virtually no bezel aside from the base. The case and buttons are ceramic, and it’s what every “iPhone 9 concept” render wants to be, only this one is real, and it’s already for sale.
That big, beautiful display accounts for over 91 percent of the device’s body surface, giving it the highest screen-to-body ratio of any smartphone on the market today. It also features rounded edges, which is unique among smartphone displays.
Other specs include a 16MP rear camera, a 2.35GHz Snapdragon processor, big 4400mAh battery, and up to 6GB of RAM. In short, it’s a beast of a device, and it looks like what you always dreamed a smartphone could look like.
So what’s the catch? Well, since Xiaomi is a Chinese company that rarely dabbles in the U.S. market, the Mi Mix isn’t officially available here. It’s being considered a “concept” by Xiaomi, which suggests it’s being produced and sold in very limited numbers, which is likely to drive the 3,449 yen ($515) price up quite a bit in the secondary market. Just keep your fingers crossed that you’ll be able to track one down after its Nov. 4 launch date.
