Xiaomi has officially introduced its Mi Mix Alpha, a 5G concept phone featuring a 'true' bezel-free experience. The phone has a massive 180.6% screen-to-body ratio, meaning the display wraps around the edges of the phone and covers the majority of the device's rear panel. Similarly impressive is the device's 108MP camera with its 12032 x 9024 pixel resolution.

Xiaomi teased the Mi Mix Alpha's existence in early August at its Future Image Technology Communications Conference in Beijing. At the time, the company said it would be the first company to pack Samsung's 108MP ISOCELL sensor into a smartphone, though it didn't provide any other details at the time.

During its latest event today, Xiaomi introduced the camera that packs that sensor, its new Mix Mix Alpha with Surround Screen. This phone features aerospace titanium, a single power button on the top, pressure-sensitive sides, and a fingerprint sensor hidden underneath the display.

The Mi Mix Alpha is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset alongside 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM. Joining the 108MP sensor is a secondary rear 12MP telephoto camera with dual PD focus and 2x optical zoom. The phone doesn't feature a traditional front 'selfie' camera due also having a display on the back of the handset -- the rear camera is, technically speaking, a front camera as well.

Xiaomi describes the Mi Mix Alpha as a '5G concept smartphone.' According to Engadget, the company plans to produce a small number of units for sale in China at 19,999 yuan (approx. $2800 / €2,550) starting in December, but the company's broader plans for the model, including international availability, are unclear at this time.
