Xiaomi at the Mi Note 2 launch also showed off the MIX the concept smartphone that the company claims to have been working on for a long time. The 91.3 screen to body ratio has not been possible till now, but Xiaomi claims they have managed to achieve it with the MIX.
Converting the concept phone into reality they introduced some new features, the earpiece is replaced with conductive audio tech and the proximity sensor is based on a range sensing technology that allows the device to not have a top bezel. The display drivers are stuffed in the bottom bezel which also houses the front facing camera.
There is practically no bezel except on the bottom part. The phone will be available in China on November 4 and will come in two models. One, housing 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, will retail for 3499 yuan (Rs. 34503, $510, AU$680, £420) while a premium model with 18k gold embossing and 256GB onboard storage will cost 3,999 yuan (Rs. 39500, $590, AU$770, £480).
Claiming a completely edgeless design the company showed off a working prototype of the phones on stage. The back of the MIX is based on a solid slim metal frame which is backed completely by ceramic outer shell. The design was made by Philippe Starck who himself showed off the phone on stage.
