Samsung and iPhone may need to step aside because there is a new concept phone on the market that could just be what consumers have been dreaming of all along.
The new Xiaomi Mi Mix may be a concept phone, but Digital Trends urges consumers to look past that and consider it as a viable smartphone option. The phone is currently in production and will be released November 2016. Critics have already cited this phone to be one of the most exciting releases in technology for some time.
The Mi Note 2, which is like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, features a large screen display, 1080p, and a generous battery, reports Engadget. The only thing it does not have is a stylus.
What makes this concept phone unique is that it is all screen, and the screen is flexible. Per The Verge, the phone is 91.3 percent screen. The screen itself wrapped around the edges and compared to the Galaxy Note 7, this version is only $413, says Engadget. The final model will cost around $516.
The cost, however, is less than the iPhone 7 Plus as well as the Google Pixel XL. The cost rivals that of the LG V20 and considering it is so futuristic, many consumers in the United States could look for a way to get their hands on this cutting-edge device.
The phone is available in Piano Black and Glacier Silver. Silver models will not be available until two weeks after the black model launches at the start of November, says Engadget.
Technology Behind the Latest Concept Phone
The Mi Mix has the same technology that drives Google’s new Pixel phone, which includes Snapdragon 821 chip, reports The Verge. It also supports two SIM cards, features higher resolution audio, gold accents, a rear camera, and excellent storage capacity. Digital Trends reports that the body of the phone is ceramic. It also has a fingerprint sensor and high RAM capacity.
Engadget reports that the phone will also feature technology like Samsung, including the quick charge feature.
The speaker for the phone, per Digital Trends, is not like the traditional phone. Instead, they use ceramic acoustic technology. When the phone is held up to the ear, a person can hear clearly and the sensors to turn on the sound are hidden behind the screen.
The phone will be sold in China, but consumers in the United States can get their hands on the new phone by having one imported, reports Digital Trends.
The company behind the phone calls it a work of art, and it truly is. When a user tries out the Xiaomi Mi Mix, they will have an experience that is like a tablet, but all screen. No buttons are taking up valuable real estate, and all the necessary components are either built into the phone or placed on the back, reports The Verge.
