Concept designs can be quite fun to look at, and ‘Concept creator’ published two more such videos on YouTube, showing off the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 and the Nokia C9. This YouTube channel already released quite a few concept creations, ranging from the Nokia 1 and iPhone 8, all the way to the Google Pixel 2 and OnePlus 5. That being said, it’s time for us to take a look at the two newest creations that were published on this YouTube channel, read on.
Let’s kick things off with the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, shall we. The original Xiaomi Mi MIX looks truly stunning, and this design takes things on a whole new level. Once again, the phone has no bezel above its display, nor on the sides, and its ‘chin’ below the display is now super tiny. This phone seems to be made out of ceramic, just like the Xiaomi Mi MIX, and it sports curved display corners, just like the LG G6. A 16-megapixel shooter is placed on the back of this concept Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 handset, next to it you’ll notice the dual-LED, dual-tone flash, while a fingerprint scanner lies below the main camera. A Type-C USB port is placed on the bottom of this phone, and is flanked by a set of speaker grills, while a 12-megapixel camera slides out on top of the phone, and serves as a front-facing shooter. This phone has a 93% screen-to-body ratio, which is a significant improvement compared to its predecessor which sports 91.3% screen-to-body ratio. The power / lock, volume up and volume down keys are located on the right-hand side of this smartphone.
Now, the Nokia C9 concept design is also quite interesting. This smartphone sports a metallic frame, and a leather back cover. A Type-C USB port is located on the bottom of the device, and is flanked by speaker grills. The volume up and volume down keys are placed on the left side of this smartphone, and below them lies the SIM card tray. A power / lock key can be found on the right-hand side of this smartphone, and the dual-LED flash is placed above the phone’s rear-facing camera. This handset comes with a front-facing fingerprint scanner, which probably doubles as a home key, and the source also envisioned some nice specs for this phone. On the back of the device lies a 22.3-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera (f/1.8 aperture, 1.4um pixel size), the phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, and it packs in 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM. Interestingly enough, the device also offers a dedicated, physical camera key on the right, and a 5.5-inch QHD display is also a part of this package.
