Even at the time of its announcement, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha concept smartphone, almost entirely composed of a screen, did not look particularly viable. Moreover, with the promised price of $ 2800. But the company still planned to bring it to the market, and recently there were even rumors that it would receive the Snapdragon 865. Those who were waiting for it will be disappointed with the latest news.
The device not only will not be released this year, but it will not be mass-produced at all – this information was announced by the executive director of Xiaomi Lei Jun. He recently answered the three most frequently asked questions by Xiaomi fans. First of all, fans are wondering: is it worth expecting a new device from the Mi Mix series this year? The executive said the series brings with it cutting edge innovation and the company is working hard to create a new model that lives up to expectations. But you shouldn’t wait for it this year.
The company is also asked: when will the Mi Mix Alpha be mass-produced? Lei Jun explained that the phone was a research project and it achieved its goal. However, the requirements for mass production are too high, so the device will not be mass-produced. Instead, the company is focusing on the next generation Mi Mix (hopefully an interesting flexible smartphone).
The third question was about the future of Xiaomi Surge SoCs. In his response, the head said that the company has so far faced some serious difficulties, although it has not stopped developing its own processors. Recall: in February 2017, Xiaomi introduced its first Surge S1 processor, which formed the basis for the Xiaomi Mi 5C. Since then, not a single new chip has been released under this brand.
