Xiaomi’s Mi Mix smartphone is an extraordinary piece of work, thanks to Philippe Starck’s innovative design. This phone features an edge-to-edge bezel and a ceramic body. The French industrial designer knew what he wanted: he didn’t want any ‘pollution’ on the phone’s design, but instead, just complete and unabridged focus on its screen. The frameless screen covers 91 percent of the front part of the phone, which made it necessary to make extra tweaks to the speakers and front camera.

The Mi Mix has a 6.4-inch screen with a resolution of 2040 x 1080 pixels. Another special feature is its ceramic body. Ceramic is a material that’s very strong and elegant, just like jade.

Other features include a fingerprint sensor, 4400 mAH battery, 16MP camera, 4k quality video recording, and runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, 2.35 GHz processor.
