Last week, Xiaomi introduced the flagship Mi 9 Pro 5G and the concept smartphone Mi Mix Alpha (pictured), which will be released in a small batch at a price of about $ 2800. There was not a word about the successor to the frameless Mi Mix 3, although it was expected that the device will be shown at the same event. It turned out that such a smartphone will not exist at all.
Information on the Mi Mix 4 regularly appeared on the Internet, but a Xiaomi spokesman said: Mix Alpha is the only Mix series smartphone that the company will release. Apparently, the new generation Mi Mix is not planned at all.
Usually, this line showed Xiaomi’s innovative ideas: frameless display, slider form factor, and so on. Mi Mix Alpha also meets the criteria: the smartphone received a display “wrapped” around the case, which occupies not only the front, but also almost the entire back side. True, the price for such innovation was decent – about $ 2800. It is even more expensive than Samsung and Huawei smartphones with flexible screens.
