Xiaomi’s Mi Mix Alpha is almost entirely made of screen

  Xiaomi’s Mi Mix Alpha is almost entirely made of screen The display wraps around the entire phoneThe display on the Alpha curves entirely around the device to the point where it meets the camera module on the other side. The effect is of a phone that’s almost completely made of screen, with status icons like network signal and battery charge displayed on the side. There’s no need for a selfie camera — you just turn the phone around and use the rear portion of the display as a viewfinder.

It ' s called the Mi Mix Alpha , and it ' s one-upping the first Mi Mix by having a display that literally wraps around its body. The Beijing-based tech company says its screen -to-body ratio is 180 .6 percent, and the parts not covered by a display -- the top and the bottom of the phone, in other words -- is made of

Xiaomi ' s Mi Mix Alpha is now official, and it has an insane 180 % screen -to-body ratio thanks to a screen that extends all the way around the back. The phone has a 108MP camera joined by a 20MP wide-angle lens and 12MP telephoto shooter. Xiaomi has unveiled its latest flagship, and it is unlike

Screen-to-body ratio is used to denote the amount of screen compared to the size of the phone chassis itself. The higher the screen-to-body ratio, the smaller the bezel. The iPhone 11 Pro has a screen-to-body ratio of 82.1% thanks to its big ol' notch. Huawei's Mate 30 Pro's ratio is 94.1%. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus? 91%. On Monday, Chinese company Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Mix Alpha, a phone it says has a screen-to-body ratio of 180.6%.

Yep, you read that right.

The concept phone's display wraps around the sides of the phone and extends aaaaaaall the way to the back. The only bezel on the phone is a narrow strip on the back which houses the camera setup. Oh, and that camera setup? It combines a 108-megapixel shooter with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens (for 2x optical zoom) and a 20-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera.

An industry insider leaked the stunning flagship phone design of the future, and we almost missed it

  An industry insider leaked the stunning flagship phone design of the future, and we almost missed it Earlier this week, a China-based smartphone company called Xiaomi unveiled an intriguing new handset called the Mi Mix Alpha. It has a design that's unlike anything the world has ever seen before, and people when nuts when they first saw it. As you can see in the image above, the Mi Mix Alpha features a curved OLED screen like Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 or the OnePlus 7 Pro. Instead of just curving a bit on both edges, however, the display on the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha wraps around both sides and extends all the way to the back of the phone.

Xiaomi said it uses AI and special sensors to disable unwanted touches on the sides of the device. It ’ s a phone made for “hardcore fans” so you won’t be surprised to hear it costs a pretty penny: 20,000 yuan (~00). We’re just learning what the Mi Mix Alpha is about, but one thing is clear right now.

One hundred. And eight. Megapixels.

The camera shoots 12,032 by 9,024 resolution photos, Xiaomi says. That's a lot of pixels . More megapixels doesn't always mean better photos -- the Huawei P20 Pro takes excellent photos with a 40-megapixel lens, but the Google Pixel 3 takes equally-if-not-better photos with a 12.2-megapixel lens -- but it's hard not to be intrigued by 108 megapixels. To show off its prowess, Xiaomi demoed a photo taken with the camera and then showed that you can zoom in up to 8x without losing much detail at all.
