Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha Launched with 108NP Camera and Wrap-up Display

The just released Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha does not disappoint as usual as Xiaomi has always been saving its most exciting technologies for the MIX series. The new phone has a wrap-around display, 108MP camera and the latest chipset by Qualcomm.

In all these, there is an important information I will just have to mention – the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha price is CNY19,999, which is over $2,800/€2,500. It will be surprising to know that the Mi Mix Alpha is more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the yet-to-be-released Huawei Mate X.

The Mi Mix Alpha will be powered by a Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. The battery is a 4050mAh nano silicone cathode power cell with 40W wired fast-charging. The more interesting feature is the actual display that goes around the phone.

The phone maker says the design allows it to achieve a screen to boy ratio of 180%. This is higher than even the Mate X foldable phone, although you cannot unwrap the Alpha and get one giant continuous panel.

The panel has 2.15 mm thick bezels on top and bottom and a camera strip on the back, with the lenses protected by a sapphire glass. The edges are pressure-sensitive and will provide notifications. There is no speaker or any other holes – the proximity sensor is ultrasonic, audio is available thanks to “Display Acoustic Technology” and there is an advanced palm rejection technology

The part of the display on the back is said to have AI algorithms that detect key scenarios like calling a cab, using your Xiaomi devices at home with the Mi Home app or when you need it to pull up flight itinerary. Of course, you can also use the backside for selfies – now you have all the 108 megapixels for your mugshots.

The main camera of the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha has a huge 1/1.33 inch type sensor and a Tetracell technology, which is meant to output 27 MP shots pixel-binned shots. The Ultrawide shooter below has a 20 MP imager and 117-degree FoV, while the third snapper is a 12 MP telephoto lens.

You would think the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha is extremely fragile, but Xiaomi did its best to protect it – the frame is an aerospace-grade alloy, while the back strip is ceramic with already mentioned sapphire glass protection for the shooters. If you are willing to shed the massive amount of money, have to wait until December when the phone will be launched
