Last September, Xiaomi took off covers from the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G and Mi MIX Alpha concept phone. The company has been selling the Mi 9 Pro 5G, but the Mi MIX Alpha that features a marvelous wraparound display is yet to arrive in the market. Recently, the Mi MIX Alpha was found listed on third-party retailer sites like Taobao and Tmall. A fresh report on Abacus News suggests that the release date of the Mi MIX Alpha could be nearing.
According to the publication, it has learnt from Xiaomi that it hasn’t fixed a released date for the Mi MIX Alpha yet but will be sharing it as soon as possible. Even though it was listed on the aforementioned third-party resellers, it wasn’t available for purchase.
Priced at 19,999 Yuan (~$2,280), Xiaomi MI MIX Alpha concept phone is the most expensive flagship from the company. It is likely to be available in limited stock as the company had claimed at the launch of the device that it won’t be mass producing it. The concept phone was expected to release in December, but its arrival has been seemingly delayed due to technical difficulty related to its unique design.
