The Xiaomi Mi Mix is the single most interesting smartphone we’ve seen in a while, no doubt about that. Sure, the iPhone 8 may be rumored to be all display next year, but we can have that now in the Mi Mix, sort of. It does have a chin, and it will only be available in China for the time being, but those are details.
A more conventional offering, the Mi Note 2 from Xiaomi is official as well – itself a proper flagship, even with a dual-curved display like a certain Note7 we sadly won’t be seeing much of.
Xiaomi’s high-profile announcements aside, this week also saw the birth of another BlackBerry, the beautifully named DTEK60. And that about covers all the new phones.
