The Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha will be the new terminal to be included in the Asian brand’s range, underlining the most innovative aspect and easing the load on the Mi MIX 3 launched last year. It seems that there will be no Mi MIX 4 that would be the logical ordinal successor discussed in recent months.
Instead, Xiaomi would have decided to change the nomenclature of this device, which is based on the premise of attracting attention again by offering something different from what we find on the market. It will not change the philosophy that we have seen over the years, which has been aimed at making the most of the front of the terminal with solutions such as shooting the Selfie camera in one of the lower corners, something characteristic of the first devices of the series or under a sliding wall, in the case of the latter.
Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha comes with curves
In images that the company itself shares in its profile of the Chinese social network Weibo, the manufacturer has revealed that it intends to present this new model and that it comes with at least one of the edges that have extreme curvature. The accent on the sides of smartphones that merge with the side of the devices is something we’ve been seeing for some time and it’s back in fashion.
We have seen this in the recent Huawei terminals, for example, which have reached their maximum exponent in this respect with the Mate 30 Pro and edges that increase their degree of curvature to offer additional features. The benchmark for years, however, has been Samsung, who has shown them in various areas. Indeed, the Mi MIX Alpha has a certain reminiscence of the denigrated Galaxy Note Edge.
In the same poster, we see that it will be presented next September 24th and that it will arrive with 5G among its internal qualities. It is also expected an inverted wireless charge, a 108-megapixel camera, the Snapdragon 855+ processor and a 4,500 mAh battery with 45W fast charge.
