Mi MIX Alpha listed on official Xiaomi India website, but it won’t go on sale

“Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha will be displayed across Mi Home stores in the country to let users know of its design and innovation”

Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha was unveiled back in September 2019 in China as a futuristic smartphone with a wraparound display. The handset was recently shown off in a closed media interaction in India. Now, the Mi MIX Alpha is listed on the official Xiaomi India website under the Mi Phones section, and this was first spotted by PriceBaba. While the listing may suggest the phone could go on sale in India, PriceBaba has learnt that Xiaomi has no plans to sell the smartphone. Instead, the Mi Mix Alpha will be displayed across Mi Home stores in the country. This way, Xiaomi can let users know of its design and innovation without actually launching it. Xiaomi is aiming to introduce more of its premium Mi phones under its Mi branding this year, and it recently teased the launch of Mi Note 10.
