This was a tech week of Xiaomi. The Chinese manufacturer introduced the Mi MIX Alpha which surprised everyone with a screen that extends to the back of the device – called surround. After the presentation, the brand shared some short videos showing the potential of this panel.
In the “no problem” video series, Xiaomi starts by sharing a video about the fact that Alpha has no buttons on the side. In a very simple video, we see an app open via a touch button.
Getting a message on Alpha is a truly "tuning" experience. In what is described as a “new way of receiving messages”, the video shows the sides flashing in a very attractive blue light.
My favorite animation of this Alpha is loading. As you can see in this video, the smartphone fills with green glow that fills the smartphone as it charges.
The back of the Alpha screen will be off if not used for battery saver reasons. However, if you see your smartphone, the back will light immediately so you can start using it.
The Mi MIX Alpha is by far the boldest smartphone ever produced by Xiaomi. This is a concept that will see only 500 units being manufactured this year. It won't be a smartphone for everyone, but the brand shows its full potential with this device.
