The day before the presentation of the smartphone Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha, the manufacturer continues to warm up the interest of users in the future gadget. Official teasers hardly reveal detailed information about the device - unlike insider publications. A large-scale series of leaks revealed most of the key features of the device, including a sub-screen selfie camera, the design of the back cover and other features of the flagship preparing for the announcement.
Shortly before the presentation, a slide appeared on the net from the alleged rehearsal of the upcoming event. Of particular interest in the picture is the sub-screen arrangement of the front camera and face recognition sensor.
If the leak is correct, Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha will be the first serial device in the world with a new type of self-module. Previously, the vendor hinted at this feature of the gadget in one of the teasers, inviting users to guess which solution for the selfie module the new one will receive.
According to available information, the device will receive an NFC module, a USB Type-C port, and an eSIM chip. Judging by the image, the display "stretches" to the back cover of the device - some sources say that the smartphone will be "wrapped" in the screen almost completely, except for a narrow strip for the rear camera.
Realistic renderings demonstrating the design of the future new items were posted on their famous Twitter blog Ice Universe on their Twitter blog. He assumes that the gadget will debut in a Candybar form factor with minimal frames at the top and bottom of the screen.
Xiaomi also hinted at the materials from which the new case will be made. Another fresh teaser showed three types of material: titanium, silicon dioxide (used in the manufacture of ceramics) and aluminum oxide. It is possible that the smartphone will use all of these components in its design.
The company still does not provide details about the specifications of the device - only the presence of a 5G modem is officially confirmed. It is expected that the flagship Snapdragon 855 Plus processor will become the “core” of the smartphone, and the resolution of the main rear camera sensor will be 100 megapixels.
The presentation of Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha will be held tomorrow, September 24th. On the same day, the company will present the Mi9 Pro 5G model, its first 8K-TV and MIUI 11 - a new version of the proprietary shell for smartphones.
