If all these months you regularly hoped for the appearance of the Mi Mix Alpha smartphone in the Xiaomi area, it’s time to finally say goodbye to the illusions. The head of the company, Lei Jun, who recently eagerly communicates with the fans and answers their questions, stated this quite clearly.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha will never hit the shelves
When the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha appeared to a wide audience in September last year, its creators aimed to impress and surprise. And they succeeded. Especially because in the presentation it was promised that the innovative model is not just a demonstration version. However, it will be available in a limited edition at the end of December 2019. As a result, this did not happen and the smartphone was never intended to appear on the market.
Lei Jun stated that the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha has become a preliminary and experimental project. The first studies were successful, but later encountered difficulties in mass production. So it was decided to abandon the release of the device.
Prospects for brand release and Xiaomi Mi Mix 4
But the team of engineers and designers shifted their focus from a futuristic model to creating a more massive solution in the Mix series. The head of Xiaomi expressed the hope that they will be able to create a smartphone equipped with advanced technologies. But this will take some time. Unfortunately, it did not get details on what the new product will be called. Or even when it can debut around. If the company does not depart from the usual name, then we will see the debut of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4.
Fans also asked about the fate of the company’s brands. Recall that in February 2017, the company announced its first Surge S1 processor. It became the basis for the Xiaomi Mi 5C. He did not go further than the release of the firstborn. But that does not mean that Xiaomi has abandoned the idea of launching its own processors. Lei Jun assured that they are continuing their research in this direction. And he will certainly say it later when new developments appear.
As for Mi Mix Alpha, the reliable Chinese leak detection tool Digital chat station also confirmed the cessation of the Mi MIX Alpha project. This means that the smartphone will go down in history as an impossible and extremely expensive idea. Released in pieces for advertising purposes.
