Alongside with Mi Note 2, Xiaomi unveiled Mi MIX concept phone. The Mi MIX has a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3%, with the 6.4-inch tall phone. The entire exterior of the Mi MIX is made from ceramics, including the frame and buttons, to achieve the toughness and premium feel. As it is made using ceramic, the design uses mortise and Tenon joint for attaching the display to the body, instead of glue or adhesive.
It totally bezel-less on top and sides, the place where you get bezel is at the bottom. You will also find the front speaker and camera at the bottom. There is also no any physical home or any other button at the bottom. This is the first Xiaomi phone with on-screen controls. The earpiece and proximity sensor are completely hidden. They use the piezoelectric ceramic driver for the earpiece and an ultrasonic proximity sensor.
“Every geek has that fantasy of the ‘ultimate smartphone’ in their heads and today we just unveiled the smartphone of our dreams,” said MI.

The Mix’s front-facing 5-megapixel shooter at the bottom right corner. It’s an awkward location, to be honest.
The 256 GB model gets the gold trim, with 18K gold accents on the camera lens and fingerprint sensor on the back.
The Mi MIX is priced at RMB 3,499 ($515) for the 4GB/128GB model and RMB 3,999 ($590) for the 6GB/256GB model. This phone will be available in November, hopefully. Both variants come with a leather case. Unlike, the iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy s7, the Mi MIX is not water resistance.

I want this phone very badly. :0
