Finally we find out officially Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha, highly anticipated terminal by the community of tech addicted. And no, this is not the much talked about folding, but of the last declination of full screen. For the fourth chapter of the famous saga of full-screen smartphones the producer has chosen to amaze everyone with a futuristic display that is not limited to the front section.
Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha official: all you need to know
Instead of confining yourself to a more pronounced curve, as seen with the latest flagships Huawei Mate 30 Pro e Vivo NEX 3, Xiaomi has gone further. Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha offers a Surround Display that covers both the front and the back. But not with two panels detached from each other, as for Universal Z20, but with a single panel that turns and completely covers the two frames. A solution that conceptually covers the 180.6% of the total surface of the body.
It is a flexible panel folded on both sides, with very thin edges only 2.15 mm thick. A construction to say the least poco peculiar and that prompted Xiaomi to completely redesign the internal section. Starting from the connective implant, complete with support 5G. The arrangement of the antennas has been redesigned and managed as you can see in this image.
The screen is also the carrier with regard to the audio propagation, as for the previous models. Obviously everything was improved, with a more performing transmission system. Xiaomi has also well thought of the problems of the accidental touches, usually found on curved screen phones. And since the display runs along the side frames here, the AI system can block them.
In this regard, on the frame it will be possible to view the information usually present in the top bar. As well as the rear panel will be useful for consulting lightweight content that does not require the main panel. Without considering the possibility of displaying animations on everything the panel, for example the one being recharged: without many word rounds: how cool!
Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha focuses on display and camera
Given the particular structure, Mi MIX Alpha benefits from a greater resistance provided by the materials used. The main body is made in titanium alloy, usually used in aerospace. Also, the back where the photo module is embedded is in ceramic, as is the tradition of the Mi MIX range. To top it all there is also a protection in sapphire for camera lenses.
Being a top of the range with all the trappings, the hardware sector is no less important. The smartphone is driven by Snapdragon 855 + from Qualcomm, built at 7 nm with octa-core Kryo 485 CPUs at 2.96 GHz and Adreno 640 GPUs. Side memories can not miss exaggerated cuts from 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.0 storage. To feed it there is then a battery from 4050 mAh with Mi Charge Turbo support up to 40W.
Not even the photographic sector is outdone, given that, for the occasion, Xiaomi wanted to do things big. In every sense, since we are facing the first smartphone in history with a sensor from ben 108 mega-pixels. We are talking about the new sensor Samsung ISOCELL HMX, capable of taking images from 12032 x 9024 pixels. Made in partnership with Xiaomi, it is a sensor with opening f/ 1.69 an above average size of 1 / 1.33 ". Its peculiarity is that it can be substituted for a telephoto lens (however present), since it will allow for a very high crop: here are the first samples taken with Mi MIX Alpha.
The photographic sector includes a triptych of sensors. In addition to the primary from 108 MP, we have a wide-angle lens Sony IMX350 from 20 MP with FoV of 117 ° (with macro up to 1.5 cm) and opening f/ 2.2 and an 2X Samsung S5K2L7 telephoto lens from 12 MP with opening f/ 2.0 and Dual PDAF autofocus.
