Xiaomi Mi Mix Ultimate with World class design

The Xiaomi Mi Mix is designed by French designer Phillipe Starck. Mr Starck is known for his industrial and architectural designs, which generally carry simple, yet inventive structures.

The Mix is all ceramic, including the rear, front, and buttons.

Stylewise, Xiaomi’s Mix puts manufacturers such as iPhone and Samsung to shame with its edgeless display. Not only are the sides nearly non-existent, there’s no top bezel, and the bottom portion of the front is much shorter than we typically see.

For a bit of icing and to ram things home, Xiaomi Mi Mix Ultimate includes an 18K gold rimmed camera.

91.3% screen-to-body

This phone isn’t for those who prefer small. The IPS display is a big 6.4″@2K (2040*1080). The display will carry a 17:9 ratio when in full mode, and 16:9 when soft keys are onscreen.

The screen-to-body ratio is 91.3%, which puts the iPhone 7 [email protected]% in a fairly embarrassing position.

Xiaomi partially achieves this by getting rid of physical keys and moving the front camera down to the bottom-right corner.

Wait, the top is gone? Where did the earpiece speaker go?

There is none. That’s right, there’s no earpiece speaker in the Xiaomi Mix. Instead, the sound is vibrated to your ear via piezoelectric ceramic which converts electrical signals (voice data) into mechanical energy (vibrations).

You put your ear anywhere up towards the top of the phone, and microvibrations allow you to easily hear the person on the other end.

Some may be skeptical, but the Mi Max has been 3rd party tested and this technology is working great and as advertised.

Xiaomi Mi Mix has a Top of the line SoC

The SoC carried by the Xiaomi Mix is Snapdragon 821. This SoC is one of the most powerful in the game, and future proofs the Mix for a long while to come.

The CPU in the Snapdragon 821 is compromised of 4 of Qualcomm’s own Kryo cores clocked at 2.35GHz.

The GPU in the Snapdragon 821 is Adreno 530. This is the same as Snapdragon 820, however Qualcomm touts a 5% increase in GPU performance with 821.
