During the launch of the Mi Note 2, Xiaomi has also announced a new phone: the Xiaomi Mi Mix. The Mi Mix is a concept phone that seems to becoming reality and has a breathtaking design thanks to its bezel-less three cruved design and an impressive 91.3% screen-to-body ratio.
The Mi Mix will be a 6.4 inch phablet and fits in the line-up like the Xiaomi Mi Max. In design, next to the bezel-less part, the Mi Mix will feature a full ceramic body and minimalist design which is design by the world’s famous designer Philippe Stack. Because of its design there is no place for a physical earpiece speaker or proximity sensor, Xiaomi has developed with its partners as solution with the use of piezolecetric ceramic acoustic technology where a ceramic drive unit converts electrical signals into mechanical energy which than again produce the sound. The proximity sensor itself is placed behind the display.
According to Xiaomi the 91.3% screen-to-body ratio is possible due to the use of a 50% smaller camera module on the front of the device which is now located at the bottom right corner instead of the useally front top.
