Yesterday we reported that Xiaomi had announced their latest smartphone in the form of the Xiaomi Mi Mix. We called the phone the phone of our dreams because it sports a breathtaking design with an almost edgeless display. In the promo images, it shows how the bezels around the phone are practically non-existent.
Now before you get too excited, it seems that that marketing machine is at it again because in real-life photos of the handset that have since been published, it shows that the Mi Mix might not be as “edgeless” as we had thought. In fact the bezels do seem to be considerably thicker than what Xiaomi had originally marketed it to be.
Now we get that sometimes when it comes to marketing, there is more polish and thought put into things, but we guess this is something you’ll want to think about if the Mi Mix is definitely on your list of phones to get. Don’t get us wrong, the Mi Mix still looks pretty good but definitely not what the marketing images had initially shown us.
That being said, Xiaomi could have still potentially beaten Apple to the punch. It has been rumored that Apple’s 2017 iPhone could also sport an edgeless display, so we have to wonder if we’ll end up with a device similar to the Mi Mix, or if maybe Apple has figured out a way to make the bezels even thinnner?
