Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Mi Mix Alpha which is undeniably one of the most breathtaking smartphone designs we’ve ever seen. Instead of using a flexible AMOLED display to create a foldable, the company has used the same technology to create a super futuristic looking device with a wraparound screen.

Xiaomi has taken the covers of its absolutely stunning Mi Mix Alpha. The device features a wrapround flexible AMOLED display it calls “Surround Display” which gives the device an incredible 180.6 percent screen-to-body ratio. This is a thoroughly ultra-high end device that combines its one-of-a-kind display with an irresistible amalgam of titanium, sapphire glass and ceramic.

As you might expect for such a technological showcase, it is packed with completely state-of-the-art technology everywhere you look. This includes a Snapdragon 855+ mated to 12 GB of RAM combined with 512 GB of internal UFS 3.0 storage. It runs MIUI 11 which is based on the latest Android version 10. It also features a 4,050 mAh nano silicon cathode battery which the absolute latest and greatest when it comes to keeping things powered. Should your charge run low, you’ll be back up and ru nning with 40 W fast-charging

Like the recently revealed Vivo NEX 3 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the Xiaomi eliminates physical buttons in favor of virtual touch-based controls. It’s cameras also include the all-new 108 MP Samsung ISOCELL primary sensor, a 20 MP wide-angle sensor and a 12 MP telephoto sensor. Although Xiaomi is calling the device a concept phone, it is already being manufactured in limited quantities and will ship in December for an eye-watering US$2,800. No word yet on a release outside of the Chinese market as yet.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
