Xiaomi’s incredible new Mi Mix smartphone brings a jaw-dropping “edgeless” display, a ceramic design and groundbreaking new technologies.
It’s unclear whether Apple would be able to adapt its 3D Touch technology for an edgeless design with a rounded display. And the Taptic Engine might not even fit inside an iPhone that added cantilever piezoelectric ceramics and an ultrasonic distance sensor. After all, Apple had to kill off the iPhone’s headphone jack just to make room for larger cameras.
Apple will certainly keep advanced features like 3D Touch and the Taptic Engine in future iPhones.
