CES 2017 | Xiaomi: The Mi Mix ceramic phone will be available in white
Hugo Barra, VP of Xiaomi International introduced the white version of the Mi Mix concept phone last weekend during CES 2017. However, unless you import it yourself, it will still only be available officially in China.
As was rumored before CES 2017, Xiaomi's Hugo Barra did introduce a white version of the highly acclaimed concept phone Mi Mix, that Xiaomi surprisingly introduced to the Chinese market near the end of last year. The phone has has been quite popular with users, although it is not available outside Xiaomi's home country officially and even though Xiaomi brought the white version to Las Vegas for CES 2017, this will not change any time soon according to the VP.
We did have a look at the Mi Mix a couple of weeks ago and found it to be a very interesting phone due to its small bezels on three sides and its large screen. However, using it outside of China did lessen its potential as our test showed. Besides, users are advised to keep the phone safe and secure in a case because the combination of slim bezels and the ceramic material used in the phone has shown to break more easily when dropped. You can see some more real life pictures of the white Mi Mix here.
