Xiaomi Mi MIX Screen and Camera Details Revealed

by Habeeb Onawole 12

News of Xiaomi’s launch event held yesterday has been flooding the internet and the device getting the most coverage is not even the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 but the Mi MIX ”concept” phone.

The Mi MIX is popular not because of its design; Sharp is sort of the pioneer in that aspect. But because it was unexpected. Totally unexpected. Nobody had heard of it not until yesterday. It’s production process must have been really top secret and I won’t be surprised if all those who worked on the project were asked to take an oath of secrecy. And now that it has been unveiled, the internet is gushing over it.

Fitted with a 6.4” display that feels like you are holding a 5.5” device in your hand due to the non-existent bezels on three of its sides, a snapdragon 821 processor, 6GB of RAM, either 128GB or 256GB of storage and an affordable price that starts at $516, what’s there not to love about the phone?

During the launch, quite a number of important details were skipped such as the supplier for the display and the cameras. Those details have however been revealed now. The 6.4” display is made by……Sharp. Yes, it is a Sharp display which means, Xiaomi not only got inspired by the Sharp Aquos Crystal but also got them to provide the display, although the Mi MIX looks better than the Aquos Crystal.

And for the cameras, Xiaomi has turned to OmniVision to supply the sensors. The front camera is a 5MP ov5675 sensor with a 1.12 μm pixel size. The primary shooter is a 16-Megapixel 1-Micron OV16880  sensor with a sensor size of 1/3.06 inches. The sensor is built on OmniVision’s PureCel Plus-S stacked die technology.

    lol “the mi mix is not popular for its design” dont make me laugh when the qiku q terra pioneered dual cameras with one monochrome and one colored no one batted an eye it also has nothing to do with being unexpected lol

    With the case, bezel is huge. Defeats the purpose completely.
    Without the case, good luck when it inevitably drops.

    Looks spectacular, but until they make shatterproof glass, no way Jose.

  • willysson

    Expensive for those cameras.

  • Muhammad Yasir

    no dual cam … this is shit

    • Ionut Johnny

      I got dual cams now, I love the bokeh effect and I still have to discover the Huawei P9 capabilities but I like the UI, sound in headphones and the cameras, of course 😁
      Anyway I’d go anytime for a single one but better images. Xiaomi Mix looks like an unreal phone.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        P9 has killer cam ?

        • Ionut Johnny

          Yes, everything’s great, lots of modes, bokeh effect etc.

      Dual cams dont mean shit. The highest rated smartphone cameras in the world are the Google pixel and the galaxy s7 which both have single cameras and they have vastly better night time photos. More isnt always guaranteed to be better. Don’t just jump on the bandwagon because everyone is. you might end up somewhere you dont like.

        And ALL top-end phones from EVERYBODY (ZTE, Huawei, Apple. Samsung, LG, Motorola, etc) will be dual cam late this year or by next year.
        So if it’s all shit, I wonder why LG and Apple are producing so nice dual-sensor phones….

      • Muhammad Yasir

        meh … keep those last 2 shit sentences to yourself

        this was Xiaomi’s chance to team up with OV for good Dual cam sensors and show the world they truly mean ‘premium’. could have well beaten the S7 if the implementation was done right !

  • The Calm Critic

    imho to begin with, it’s .4″ too large. Probably be a bit more streamlined at 5.7″ even. Secondly it had to be proportionately realistic. Like how I thought that what most anti bezels people meant all this time is the sides (portrait view) to be minimized as the top and chin are still an acceptable compromise as long as those serve the purpose of holding the extras (whatever; home + fingerprint scanner or front facing speakers) or maybe the antenna concerns plus physical build’s durability aspect.

    Of course from a purely “looks”/aesthetic POV, this is a very nice takeoff. But at what expense? Maybe really sort the side issues 1st before making this a mainstream thing.

    6 inch 1080p screen is screaming for “Look at my pixels”. So sad they didn’t go for a QHD resolution. Ah well, maybe Mi Mix 2 in 6 months…
