Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Mix Alpha concept smartphone back on 24th September 2019. Since then, it has been teased that the smartphone will soon be available for purchase. However, the year is about to end and yet there is no sign of an official launch date. But on the other hand, the unique handset was found listed for pre-sales online by a third-party retailer.
Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha listed on 3rd Party Retailers
On the retailer’s website, the release information and other crucial details regarding its launch have not been disclosed. Apparently, “the shipment will be synchronized with the official website.” In other words, the Mi Mix Alpha Concept 5G smartphone will be available when Xiaomi officially starts the sale of the handset. Additionally, the price of the concept device is also listed online with the Mi Mix Alpha priced at 19,999 Yuan (Or roughly 2,854 US Dollars)
Notably, there already appears to be two buyer reviews on the Mi Mix Alpha booking already, although that is likely a bug. As a concept smartphone, the launch of the handset is being highly anticipated by many enthusiasts; and one of the device’s key distinct characteristics is its lack of any form of physical buttons.
Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha without physical buttons and the unique flexible screen
The Mi Mix Alpha achieves this unique design philosophy by including an innovative flexible display that rounds the corners of the device. Thus, users end up with one of the highest screens to body ratio of all time, especially considering it even covers most of the rear as well.
