The promised $99 priced bezel-less UMIDIGI Crystal is certainly among the most antcipated Xiaomi Mi Mix clones and today we got some more news and pictures tied to this phone. Seems like the model will be using the latest in-cell Sharp displays so no OLED screens like similar pieces from the competition.
Judging from the pictures the screen-to-body ratio should reach almost 90 % and the Sharp screen will have a thin layer of glass, which is allegedly the Corning Gorilla Glass 4. UMIDIGI is a long-term collaborator witn Sharp so it makes sense they are supplying the latest generation of their in-cell displays. New screens combine the LCD and touch sensor together, thus freeing the space and enabling lighter and thinner displays. And with the Crystal and its futuristic looks it’s apparently the proper way to go.
There is also a UMIDIGI Crystal giveaway event running on their official site, each week a lucky winner will be rewarded with a UMIDIGI Crystal, the first winner will be announced on 29th May. You can subscribe to participate here.
