Based on news on the specs of Xiaomi Mi MIX, the device sounds appealing that it appears to be a work of art. This device sports a fingerprint scanner with a lock button located at the right-hand side of the device. What makes this smartphone so unique is that it makes use of ultra-narrow bezels despite of its larger than the normal size of the device.
Certainly, if the customer is after the design and more particular about having a big device, then a Xiaomi Mi Mix would satisfy his or her desire for a smartphone that is midway to becoming a phablet.
The LCD display may not be impressive at all when compared to the HD AMOLED panels of Samsung Galaxy phones. However, the tricky part is it is tough to distinguish a 1080p versus a quad HD panel. Pixel-wise, resolution is almost the same as those of LG V20 and S7 Edge when games and videos are run.
The device is housed in a 6.4-inch display that utilize a 2040 x 1080 resolution and runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad core processor (2.35 GHz). It comes in two variants one with 4 GB random access memory (RAM) and 128 GB internal storage, and the other with 6 GB RAM and 256 GB storage.
A remarkable feature of the Xiaomi Mi MIX is the 16-megapixel rear camera supported by a 5-megapixel front facing camera. The device comes with added features of Bluetooth 4.2, near-field communication (NFC), Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), Quick Charge 3.0 support and a 4,400 mAh battery. Lastly, it also sports a unique loud speaker feature ditching the physical earpiece speaker.
Xiaomi Mi Mix continues to be a big favorite in China alone. It costs $516 for the Snapdragon 821/4 GB RAM variant while the 6 GB configuration sells for $590. Many Xiaomi fans are hoping that the device will soon be introduced in other regional markets but a worldwide release date has not yet been confirmed.
