WTF 2800$, does it at least have USB 3 for this huge price or still USB 2 like all other Xiaomi smartphones ?

Not before.

We had curved OLEDs for half a decade. Going further was easy. It's just dumb though. Why would you want this? Looks cool but in practice is useless.

This, well, is just unnecessarily fragile. Even the dual display phones are better, more usefuland less fragile than this. The only real edge of this is the 108mp camera.

This is beyond stupid in terms of design. Even at "180" percent, this thing is too big, too expensive, too fragile, etc. I didn't realize Xiaomi was interested in defeating Royole for dumbest phone on the market.

The mix series was always very innovative.

Mi mix was the first bezeless phone outside Japan (before the whole slew of bezeless phones came out)
Mix 3 (I think) was the first or maybe one of the first to hide the front camera
Mix 4 completely eliminates it by a first used design.

This is better than the Galaxy Fold. People want smaller phones. Not giant unfolded ones with a ridiculously small 4-inch display when folded.

Bravo, "innovation"!

Now this is worth selling a Kidney for, not the ugly Apples.

Just for selling and on the name of something New This what these self obsessed guys are inventing and offering to the freak people. GOD bless the company and the People who they are interested in buying such phones. HEADS OFF TO HEIGHT OF FREAKNESS.

Well who woud ever thought the Xiaomi will deliver most of the inventiion of year 2019.
When comes to technology a company which usualy copy and paste like everybody does to say presented a phone worth the attention of the kings, queens and the presidents and gowernments of all of the world.
