Remember when Xiaomi went up really fast and then returned just as steeply downward?
2016 surely did not agree with the Beijing-based company.
But look at this, it seems like Xiaomi has decided to take it slow and make it a rather stable journey.
Even when it held steady through China and even India, it remained short of the public target.
And since then we know that Xiaomi has been shy about revealing the numbers that once used to be traditionally public.
Well, it is safe to say that they have learned the lesson since they admitted to “growing too fast” when it first initiated.
And oh look, the effort it showing since the constantly dropping graph has now started to look up.
After the launch of the bezel-less phone last October, Xiaomi seems to feel highly optimistic and a lot opportunistic.
And thus it decided to unveil their new phone just a day before the overhyped new iPhone model that seems to have some radical changes.
And that shows how much confidence seems to have in the new model to be released.
While all eyes are set on Apple to launch the phone that will take it all to the next time, Xiaomi has decided to channel that spotlight for a whole 24 hours giving iPhone a direct comparison.
The Mi Mix was a success beyond anticipation hitting the market way beyond its normal fan pool.
At that time the minimum bezels were just a new foreign idea, but of course now that Samsung has given it such a boast and with Apple, LG, Essential and many another following, this can be a great wave to surf for Xiaomi.
Rumor has it that the bezels in this phone are so far gone that it is almost all screen.
Placed next to Samsung S8, it would make its bezels look thick.
But while the bezels are as gone as they are in the Essential Phone, Xiaomi decided against keeping a similar notch for the selfie camera.
In fact, they thought of getting rid of the front facing camera, altogether.
That is something that maybe a deal breaker for this selfie crazy generation.
Also, the body that was initially ceramic has now been changed to full metal.
But there is more.
Remember how iPhone 7 took so much criticism for getting rid of the headphone jack that iPhone 8 may have one of those?
Yeah well, Xiaomi seems to have not taken the hint yet and the jack is still not part of the body just as the previous model.
Along with a slimmer body and rounder curves, it also seems to have a 19 MP rear camera (the only camera).
Other rumors suggest that it would be operating on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor with a 6GB RAM.
The battery is a blast, word has it that it would at least be 4,500 mAh! Now that’s a hoot.
