The concept device features port and button-free design, likely containing touch sensors for power, volume control and other functions and powered through wireless charging. Gadgets 360 reveals that Xiaomi has “moved the status bar to the right edge giving a cleaner look to the front portion of the display. The selfie camera seems to have been placed under the screen”.
And while the company has only shared image and video renders, The Verge reports that this phone does actually exist and has been used by representatives from Xiaomi.
