Xiaomi’s new Mi Mix Alpha concept phone was just revealed at an event in China. The handset has a wraparound screen that practically covers the front and back, save for a strip that houses a 108-megapixel camera. The company said the device has an insane screen to body ratio of 180.6 percent; all of the phone’s antennae are embedded in the top and bottom bezel, and the camera strip.
The device has been made from a mix of titanium alloy, sapphire glass, and ceramic. The Mix Alpha doesn’t have a selfie camera either. The company said because of the wraparound screen, you can just turn the phone around to take a selfie. The phone has a 108-megapixel sensor, which was supplied by Samsung (and announced last month).
The phone priced at a whopping 19,999 Yuan ($2,814). The company will produce the phone on a small scale by the end of December.
