Same goes for the horrible edge they copied, but at least it's not as big as on the S8, where you could fit an elephant butt on the edge.
The absolutely only thing they should've copied from Shamesung is the camera, because the camera was the only thing that sucked about the Mi Mix 1.
Snapdragon 835 is actually quite old now. In 4 Galaxy S9 is coming with SD 845. Then it will face the same problem as LG G6.

Basically they don't bring the flagship phone in India just after its launch, they take several months to bring it here so long that by that time the Oneplus series is already here, that's the reason why no one buys it. All of them consider Oneplus way better than Mi so they are unable to sell their flagship phones.
same panel as the S8+?! it means the same tall aspect ratio?!
so this is going to be an S8+ with smaller bezels with larger battery?
"Inexistent bezels" Huh, just gonna ignore that BEZEL at the bottom of the phone then.

The reason why they priced the Mix 1 so high is because they never thought of it as a consumer-oriented device but rather as a niche and concept device which will never bring in sales. It was sort of a risky experiment but received a good response.
I still do hope they market it at a reasonable price now that they are focusing on it as a consumer-oriented device.
