Xiaomi is expected to unveil a White colored Mi Mix at CES 2017 with a ceramic bezel-less display. The company has teased the launch on its official Twitter handle with WBHLIATCEK written on it. If you verify the mixed word, you will be able to infer that it mixed WHITE with BLACK. Hence, you can surely expect a White color variant of the Xiaomi Mi Mix.
The tweet posted by Mi reads as shown below
Just 4 days to our 2017 CES Mi Product Launch, it’s going to be an exciting Mix of tech breakthroughs! What do you think we’ll be announcing?
As you can see, the teaser doesn’t reveal anything except the fact that the upcoming device is an exciting Mix of tech breakthroughs. You can easily guess from the tweet that Xiaomi will unveil the Mi Mix at the CES event.
In 2016, Xiaomi had launched the Mi Mix. However, it was launched only in Black color variant. In November 2016, few renders of White color variant surfaced on the web, which clearly revealed the fact that the upcoming phone will offer a ceramic body, which is similar to the currently available Black color variant. Even though the Xiaomi Mi Mix white variant was recently spotted at a Chinese retail store, the handset was not ready for sale.
On the specifications front, the Xiaomi Mi Mix features a 6.4-inch bezel-less 2K display with a 91.3 percent screen to body ratio. The phone is manufactured using 18k carat gold finish on the camera lens alongside a fingerprint sensor on the rear.
Under the hood, you have a Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with Adreno 530 graphics. Loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Mi Mix gets power from a 4400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
The rear camera offers a 16MP sensor with dual tone LED flash, PDAF, f/2.0 aperture, and 4K video recording. If you are a selfie freak, you can capture images using a 5MP front-facing snapper. In addition to 4G LTE, the Xiaomi Mi Mix provides support for Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS and USB Type-C port. You will be able to quickly charge the phone with the fast charging port.
Xiaomi Mi Mix is available in both 4GB and 6GB RAM variants. While the 4GB RAM coupled with 128GB storage is priced at 3499 Yuan (Rs. 35000), the 6GB RAM model paired with 256GB internal storage will be on sale at 3999 Yuan, which equates to Rs. 40000.
As of this writing, the Xiaomi Mi Mix is only available for purchase in China. However, you can place an order from Gearbest. With the showcasing of the Mi Mix at the CES 2017, we can hope that the smartphone will be launched in India before the end of Q1 2017.
