Stunning concept phone with "surround display"

Xiaomi has just unveiled its new Mi Mix Alpha 5G concept phone which is not a foldable screen phone but rather comes with a wrap-around screen for 180.6 percent screen-to-body ratio, titanium alloy frame, 108-megapixel camera module, and Snapdragon 855+ SoC.

The design and the new surround display are obviously the key traits of the new Mi Mix Alpha, and it comes with a slim top and bottom bezels (2.15mm), using TC4 aerospace-grade titanium allow frame with a ceramic back strip which houses the camera module and is coated with 2.99g full sapphire glass cover.

The screen, which is a single display panel, wraps around the entire phone and it will have pressure-sensitive sides and offer 180.6 percent screen-to-body ratio. Unfortunately, Xiaomi did not talk about things like resolution, but the whole concept looks beautiful. Xiaomi said it uses AI and special sensors for mis-touch detection and the sides of the screen are perfect for display notifications and status icons. There is a haptic motor for tactile feedback.

The phone will use display acoustic technology, features ultrasonic proximity sensors, and have advanced mis-touch detection.

The camera module is quite impressive as well, and you are looking at 108-megapixel main camera module with 1/1.33" image sensor, and four-axis optical image stabilization. It is backed up by a 12-megapixel telephoto camera module with 2x optical zoom, and a 20-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera. It also has a laser focus and flicker sensor.

There is no selfie camera as you can use the main camera for selfies with the back part of the screen.

As expected, the Mi Mix Alpha is powered by Qualcomm's current flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 855+, and it will be backed by 12GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage. There is also a 4,050mAh battery with 40W wired fast charging.

While it is a concept smartphone, the Mi Mix Alpha will be available as a limited edition and will cost a pretty penny, as the price is set at 20,000 yuan, or around $2,800. Xiaomi has been pushing the smartphone design envelope with its each Mi Mix smartphone and the new Mix Alpha is definitely the right way to go.
