Would you buy the Xiaomi Mi MIX if it came to the US?
Xiaomi recently took the wraps off its latest flagship smartphone, the Mi Note 2. While the new device might be a decent, less explosive alternative to the Galaxy Note 7, another smartphone was unveiled that might be worth your time – the Xiaomi Mi MIX.
With a crazy 91.3% screen-to-body ratio, the Mi MIX is truly a sight to behold. It features a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2048 x 1080, and basically no bezels on the top, right or left of the device. Anyone looking for extra screen real estate will certainly have no complaints about this device.
It’s not all just a crazy screen, though. The Mi MIX is packed full of top-of-the-line internals that are on par with most other high-end flagships out there. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 128 or 256GB on on-board storage, and a massive 4,400mAh battery. It also comes with a 16MP rear camera and 5MP front sensor, which is housed on the chin of the device, of course.
Unfortunately it doesn’t look like Xiaomi plans on bringing the Mi MIX to the US. Replying to comments on Reddit, the product manager for MIUI India, Jai Mani, told readers that it doesn’t make sense to launch the device in other markets, since it’s still very much a concept phone. “We have to consider each product very, very carefully given our limited resources,” he said.
Even though it’s considered a ‘concept’ at the moment, it’s still being sold in China for around $500.
So, tell us – considering the device launched at roughly the same price point, would you buy the Xiaomi Mi MIX if it came to the United States? Or are you not sold on this new concept phone?
