Xiaomi Mi Mix FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a planning to get a Mi Mix or currently own one? Do you have any questions about it? Here’s Sydney CBD Repair Team answering those queries.
Does it Feature AMOLED or Curved Display?
No, the Mi MIX doesn’t feature AMOLED panel nor is it a Curved display. From the device information, we came to know that the device is using the Sharp’s display panel.
Does the Mi MIX Support Force or 3D Touch?
It lacks the Force/3D Touch, but it would have been a bit more interesting if the company has offered it. FYI, the recently launched Mi 5s with 4GB RAM came with the 3D Touch support. The thicker ceramic shell and not much space for other parts might be a few reasons for excluding the feature which make the display panel a bit thick.
Do the Mi MIX Sports Glass Body?
Apart from the display on the front, where ever you touch on the Mi MIX is ceramic. Even the frame and hardware button are made up of Ceramic. Not only the usage of ceramic makes the device costlier, it even makes the production much harder. From the customer’s point of view, the replacement of the shattered body is mostly impossible, though ceramic is much stronger than the glass or metal.
Is it the Display Shatterproof or Scratch Resistant?
There is not much official information available about the device’s display. From the limited knowledge, we guess the huge 6.4-inch display lacks any type of protection. Once the device is dropped, we might see the shattered display but not the glossy finished body as it is completely made up of ceramic. The included leather case might protect the device from scratches and drops while regular usage.
How does 17:9 Aspect Ratio differs from 16:9?
Without considering the real estate of the onboard navigation buttons, the MIX also offers 16:9 aspect ratio. In comparison, most smartphones come with 16:9 aspect ratio and reduces to 15:9 when there are onboard buttons. In case, the buttons are hidden using the options in MIUI 8; we can see few apps leaving out a little space on top and bottom of the device. However, the default apps on the device will support the 17:9 aspect ratio giving the true experience of the almost bezel-less display.
Where & How to Buy the Mi MIX?
As we said earlier, the Mi MIX will be only limited to China and exclusively for Chinese user. There will be no PlayStore or other Google services available out of the box. The first sale of the Mi MIX took place in China today, i.e.; November 4th.

Is the Mi MIX Waterproof?
As seen with the earlier questions, there is no much protection for the device except the ceramic material. The Mi MIX also lacks any IP certifications, though none of the Xiaomi smartphones launched till date are waterproof or water resistant.
How Big is Mi MIX with 6.4-inch Display?
With a higher screen-to-body ratio, the Mi MIX feels smaller when compared to other devices with similar screen size. From the below image, you can see the 6.4-inch Mi MIX almost comes with the similar size as 5.7-inch Mi Note 2. The Mi Max with 6.44-inch display looks way bigger than the Mi MIX.
Does it Support Fast/Quick Charging?
The Xiaomi Mi Mix comes with a huge 4,400mAh non-removable battery and support fast charging with the Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology. In China, the users can also get the battery replaced for free. With such a big battery, the device can also be used as a power bank for charging other devices using the USB Type-C port. The included power adapter gives an output of 5V/2A or 9V/2A or 12V/1.5A.
Does it Offer HiFi Audio?
The Mi Note 2 that was launched alongside the Mi MIX came with Qualcomm’s Aqstic audio codec that has a 24-bit 192kHz DAC offering Hi-Fi audio quality. The HTC 10 is the first smartphone to make use of this codec. But the Mi MIX lacks an integrated audio chip for providing Hi-Fi audio output.
