Xiaomi imitates some gestures from the iPhone X

iPhone X Gestures

The iPhone X may not be the first “Full Screen” smartphone but it’s the first iPhone to come without a home button (not even a virtual one).

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is more phone than concept and that’s a little sad

There’s no denying that Xiaomi‘s original attempt at the “bezel-less” smartphone, 2016’s Mi MIX, was an impractical device. It was big, thanks to the large screen and not so slim 17:9 aspect ratio, heavy, and a little too slippery because its innards were encased in a polished ceramic shell.

Could this be Xiaomi’s second attempt at a bezel-less phone?

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

The Mi MIX is an impressive device. It was one of the first smartphones to push for a bezel-less design with an impressive 91.3% screen to body ratio.

During its announcement late last year, Xiaomi called the Mi MIX their concept smartphone but surprisingly, it is a product that you can actually buy. Now it appears that a new one is on its way, as designer Philippe Starck had shared an interesting clip of its next successor.
