Xiaomi CES 2017 announced a new White colour variant of its Mi MIX smartphone. Initially, the Mi MIX was unveiled as a limited edition handset made in collaboration with French designer Philippe Stark back in October last year.
Hugo Barra, Global VP at Xiaomi, at the company’s CES 2017 event confirmed that the new colour will be shipping to China later this year. No pricing for the new White Mi MIX smartphone was announced at the event. The Chinese company can be expected to reveal the pricing near local launch. To recall, Xiaomi Mi MIX was launched in two variants 4GB RAM/ 128GB storage priced at CNY 3,499 (roughly Rs. 34,500), and 6GB RAM/ 256GB storage priced at CNY 3,999 (roughly Rs. 39,500). It was only available in a Black colour variant.
The highlight of the Xiaomi Mi MIX is its near bezel-less display with curved edges on top with a 91.3 percent screen-to-body ratio. It also bears a ceramic body. Another highlight is the piezoelectric acoustic ceramic earpiece speaker, as well as the ultrasonic proximity sensor rather than the traditional front-facing infrared sensor.
