Now except that the domestic manufacturer Vivo is intended to release a sapphire glass screen mobile phone, it seems that Xiao Mi also has this plan. According to the report from Electronic Times in South Korea, XiaoMi has contacted with the sapphire glass screen manufacturer of South Korea, and requested them to produce sapphire glass screens for a limited edition of premium Smartphone, which is expected to be launched at the end of this year.
