Netease Technologies News, September 25, according to foreign media reports, millet's latest concept smartphone Mix Alpha can be regarded as a symbol of crazy design. The phone's screen can be bent on both sides and then surrounded to the back of the phone. Although Mix Alpha is not a foldable phone, its price is comparable to that of a foldable smartphone: it costs $2,810 (RMB 1999).
Firstly, Mix Alpha put virtual function keys on both sides of the phone because of its surround screen. The status bar is located on the side of the phone, listing common icons such as batteries, network connections, Bluetooth, etc. Although a physical power button is still retained at the top of the phone, it still has a physical power button.<#comment>#comment>millet <#comment>#comment>Mix Alpha adjusts the volume size with the virtual side key.

When there is a screen on the back of the mobile phone, users can turn the phone upside down and use the main camera for self-timer, using the rear screen as a viewfinder.

An unusual percentage of screens
Xiaomi Mix Alpha has a screen ratio of 180.6%, which means
The cell phone doesn't have a mobile display like a foldable phone, so it's possible to use glass or hard plastic as the screen case. The millet is only for use

Apart from the top and bottom, the only part of the phone that has no screen is a vertical bar on the back, which integrates cameras and antennas. Users can buy at least some of the most expensive high-quality materials through Mix Alpha: the camera surface is sapphire glass, the edge of the vertical bar is ceramic, and the frame is made of titanium alloy.
The Foundation of Foldable Mobile Phone
The design could be a stepping stone for Xiaomi to launch a collapsible smartphone. In January this year, Xiaomi showed off a model in a video.
In any case, Mix Alpha allows Millet to experiment with surround screens on commercial devices without worrying about the durability of foldable smartphones. Mix Alpha is equipped with many strange UI designs such as Side Virtual Navigation Girl, Side Status Bar and Touch Sensed Volume Keyboard, which Millet may want to get more feedback.
Mix Alpha now looks a little strange. It is not clear how Android systems and applications will match the design of this mobile phone, nor is Millet discussing it at present. (Chen Chen)
