On October 25, 2016, Engadget declared that Xiaomi had revealed the Mi MIX concept phone. The new product was shown after the company demonstrated the Mi Note 2.
The phone features a 1080p LCD that is 6.4 inches and covers every inch of the product. The two top round corners are covered.
The device is high-end and showcases sleek buttons and a ceramic body. The phone does not include a proximity sensor or an ear piece. The creator allowed a clean look for the product to look state of the art. Also, because the device is a flagship phone it has flagship specs.
Global VP Hugo Barra states that the Mi MIX was kept confidential before it was launched. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun did not even use slides that were relevant during the device’s rehearsal. The innovation company released two versions of Mi Note 2. One version is curved, and the other is flat.
Xiaomi worked with French Designer Phillippe Stark on the Mi MIX. Barra stated that the collaboration on the project began in 2014. The CEO also said that Stark’s prominent role in the project was that he set the sophisticated direction for the team. He would later guide the product’s texture.
