Video: The Maze Alpha Is A Serious Rival To The Xiaomi Mi Mix


The Xiaomi Mi Mix has another rival coming to the market, but this time we are actually kind of interested.

Since Xiaomi launched the Mi Mix and it’s revolutionary borderless design, Chinese rivals have been fast to mimic the design with various levels of success.

Borderless design is the Dragon that all brands are now chasing, but it could be a new brand that we know very little about that are the ones who really build a phone that can take on the mighty Mi Mix.

The phone is the Maze Alpha and the design, along with specifications for the flagship device, have been revealed in a teaser video.

As you can see from the featured image, the Maze Alpha uses a similar 3 border bezeleless design as the Xiaomi Mi Mix, but unlike other look-a-like devices, the Alpha actually has promising hardware too.

The Maze Alpha will be built at Maze’s own factories in Shenzhen, and wil use quality Corning Gorilla Glass 4 to protect the 6-inch AMOLED display. On the rear a dual-camera design suggests decent camera performance while an Android 7.0 operating system is a very promising start. And there are some hints about possible side-mounted fingerprint scanner, but we have to wait for the confirmation.

At this stage of the launch we don’t know if the Maze Alpha will receive a Qualcomm or Mediatek chipset, we also don’t know how much RAM the handset will have and what price the phone will be sold at, but we do know it does look very exciting:

Oh and do you know where the idea of naming the brand Maze comes from ? It’s actually a pretty neat twist, because it comes from the HBO’s TV hit show Westworld, which is all about androids. So quite fitting eh ?

    There is nothing known as of yet. I see no need to be excited. Especially when a “new company” is involved.

    Another paid advertisement!

    Nice try Andy, but all you doing is losing readers……Pathetic.

      Well the thing about advertisement is that while most of it is force-feeding people with stuff they never wanted, some of it is actual information. So when I come to a smartphone blog and learn about a new smartphone brand, it’s both advertising and that useful info I came for. I might buy this if it turns out to be a good phone brand, and I wouldn’t have if I never learned about it in the first place.

        Fair comment. Just wish they wouldn’t just copy and paste companies scripts. Lazy reporting IMHO

    If this phone turns out to be a reality and not so expensive, I might give it a try. This has some advantages over the Xiaomi Mi MIX (no Gorilla Glass, no dual cam). So this will work better …. hehe

  8. March 11, 2017

    I would hesitate to try any new OEM’s first device, at least until I saw reviews based a few months of usage.

    Interesting. I was hoping for something closer to 7″ but 6″ is a good size!
