Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi took the tech world by storm today, releasing two new handsets, the Mi Note 2 phablet and the amazing Mi Mix, a handset considered concept, which managed to impress everybody, due to its amazingly stylish design.
It wasn’t long until tech fans and not only started calling the latter as the best looking smartphone ever made. And, honestly, we can totally relate. It’s absolutely gorgeous!
Developed in partnership with designer Philippe Starck, the Xiaomi Mi Mix comes with a 6.4″ body and it’s made entirely of ceramic, rocking a bezel-free design, which results in a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3 percent.
In order to achieve this form factor, Xiaomi ditched the physical speaker and sensors, opting for a piezoelectric ceramic driver for the earpiece, as well as an ultrasonic proximity sensor, everything being hidden under the display. As for the front camera, it’s at the bottom of the devices, since it takes just half the space a regular module would.
Spec-wise, the Mi Max is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset, clocked at 2.35 GHz, alongside 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, or 6 GB of RAM and 256 gigs of space.
On the back, the phone has a 16 MP camera, while the above-mentioned selfie unit is relying on a 5 MP sensor. As for the battery, it has a total capacity of 4400 mAh, with Quick Charge 3.0 support.
The Xiaomi Mi Max will be available in its homeland, China, starting with November 4, at RMB 3499 ($516), for the base version. If you opt for the 6 GB/256 GB version, you will pay RMB 3999 ($590).
There’s no doubt that the prices are excellent considering the specs and especially the way this phone looks! Of course, it could be a risky move for Xiaomi, who entered the market with high-end phones, available at pocket-friendly prices, but only time can tell this.
