After almost three years, popular Chinese OEM company Xiaomi has decided to revisit the Mix series. During an event held yesterday in Beijing, China, the phone company unveiled the Xiaomi Mix 4 which will succeed the Mi Mix 3 that debuted in 2018.
The Mix 4 is the first Xiaomi smartphone to feature an under-display camera. The feature is a surprise addition to the Mix series and is referred to as “camera under panel” by the company. The 20MP selfie camera is located underneath a 6.67″ AMOLED display that is devoid of any cutouts.
The under-display selfie camera is achieved thanks to a whole new type of flexible display and redesigned circuit array on the display to maximize the transparency and in turn, the light reaching the selfie camera. The display features an FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
The Xiaomi Mix 4 has a ceramic back build and comes in black, white, and grey body colours. At the back of the phone is a module consisting of a triple camera – a 108MP ISOCELL HMX main sensor with OIS, an optically stabilized 8MP periscope sensor with 5x optical zoom, and a 13MP ultrawide sensor with a free-form lens.
Hardware-wise, the Mix 4 uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ chipset and is paired with two memory options – 8/128GB and 12/512GB. The smartphone is powered by a 4,500 mAh battery capacity and it supports a proclaimed “lightning-quick” 120W wired charging which can top up the phone in just 15 minutes in boost mode and 21 minutes in default mode. That’s not all, the Mix 4 supports a 50W wireless charging that takes about 28 minutes for a full recharge in boost mode.
The Xiaomi Mix 4 base model (8/128GB) is priced at CNY4,999/$770 while the 12/512GB model starts at CNY6,299/$970. The phone is available in China with the first sales scheduled for August 16 while the availability for the international market will be announced later.
