If you have been expecting to see the Mi Mix Alpha smartphone in the Xiaomi range regularly throughout these months, it is finally time to bid farewell to the confusion. The head of the company, Lei Jun, who recently volunteered to communicate with fans and answer their questions, stated quite unevenly.
Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha Shells will be found at any time
When the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha was shown to a wider audience in September of last year, its creators pursued an impressive and surprising goal. And they succeeded. In particular, the presentation promised that the innovative model isn’t just a beta. But it will be available in a limited edition in late December 2019. As a result, this did not happen and the smartphone was not scheduled to appear in the market.
Lei Jun said that Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha has become a prototype and experimental project. The first studies were successful, but later encountered difficulties in mass production. So it was decided to leave the device.

But the team of engineers and designers shifted their focus from futuristic prototypes to creating more large-scale solutions within the Mix series. The Xiaomi president hopes that they can make smartphones with advanced technologies. But it will take some time. Unfortunately, he did not go into details of what he would call the new product. Or even when it can appear almost for the first time. If the company does not deviate from the regular naming, we will see the introduction of Xiaomi Mi Mix 4.
Fans also asked about the fate of the company-branded chips. Remember, in February 2017, the company announced its first Surge S1 processor. This became the basis for the Xiaomi Mi 5C. It did not go beyond the release of the eldest. But this does not mean that Xiaomi has given up the idea of launching its own processor. Lee Jun confirmed that they are continuing their research in this direction. And he will definitely tell later when new developments will appear.
Regarding Mi Mix Alpha, the respected Chinese digital chat station searching for the leak has also confirmed that the Mi MIX Alpha project has been discontinued. This means that the smartphone will go down in history as an elusive and expensive concept. It was released in parts for advertising purposes.
