Xiaomi Mi Mix – Beauty and Innovation Collide
Back in October this year, 2016, when I first heard about Xiaomi Mi Mix. For me, Xiaomi is not an ordinary Chinese phone maker, it’s a big company, a really big company, so when something Xiaomi introduces something all eye will be on them. The launching event is so big it’s just like Apple, it is just amazing. Many people lined up for the event.
Xiaomi Mi Mix – A True Beauty with Innovation
I would like to talk about this one particular product from Xiaomi. When I heard the name, I thought that this is an MP3 player, you know, the word Mix. So it would probably just an iPod clone from Xiaomi since Xiaomi have been making so many other things than phones, like Mi Box which a TV box, Mi Band and Mi Drones, there’s Mi Air Purifier and Mi Water Purifier.
When I Googled “Mi Mix“, the result is mostly saying it is a beautiful “concept phone“. So it is a phone, just another concept, you know, most of the concepts, they never get to the public. Well, this concept phone is finally something you can get your hands on.
When I saw the picture, my first impression is just this is not just an amazing phone, it is a beauty. I think this is finally an innovation, a long time after the iPhone. Last time from what I think that come close to an innovation would be the Pokémon GO. Even that is just another thing that might eventually die and be forgotten.
This phone is 6.4 inches nearly bezel-less display. The thing that makes this phone a beauty is the display covers almost the of the body with 91.3% screen-to-body ratio, it even covers the two top round corners. Even the earpiece was gone, here is the innovation comes.
The earpiece was replaced by a cantilevered piezoelectric actuator, sound weird? Well, even I don’t know what the heck is that, but one thing for sure, it functions as an earpiece to produce sound for phone calls behind the glass. The phone also uses ultrasound for proximity sensing, now that’s what I called innovation.
A front-facing camera, which made to take selfies and take video calls, is placed at the bottom of the body. The back of the body uses ceramic called microcrystalline zirconia ceramic, again no idea what this is, which claimed by Xiaomi is similarly hard as sapphire crystal.
At The End
This a phone which combined bold, elegant and minimalist altogether, which made it a true beauty. When combined with innovations and sheer power, this is truly a dream phone.
