The Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 has been spotted in what looks to be a press image, and rumors suggest it’ll be ready to launch in September for those who live in China.
It follows the Mi Mix 3 which was announced last year in October and is arguably Xiaomi’s most premium smartphone to date.
According to a report by MyDrivers which cites a tipster from China, we now have more knowledge about some of the key specifications of the Mi Mix 4 too. The leak first appeared on Weibo – that’s a Chinese social network – and it was accompanied by an alleged image of the Mi Mix 4, which you can see below.
Back in the Mix
The leak indicates a triple camera setup on the rear. This is rumored to include a primary 108MP sensor, 16MP ultra-wide lens and a 12MP periscope lens.
If that’s true, this is set to be one of the highest spec cameras we’ve ever seen on a smartphone.
It’s worth pointing out that Xiaomi already teased a 108MP camera in one of its future smartphones, and the existence of this sensor isn’t news to us after Samsung announced it in August 2019, but we’ve had no solid confirmation or even rumors on what phone would debut the tech.
What else is in the Mi Mix 4?
Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 4 could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset. It’s a slightly tweaked version of the Snapdragon 855 that is meant to be better for gaming performance and power-hungry tasks. The leak states that this will be paired with 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage.
The phone is expected to feature a curved screen with a QHD (2048 x 1080 pixels) resolution. It could also have a 4,500mAh battery at its disposal with support for 30W fast charging. It’s also likely that the phone will be capable of wireless charging too.
Details around the front camera of the Mi Mix 4 are still unclear, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Xiaomi opts for a pop-up camera solution. The Mi Mix 4 is also expected to be one of the first smartphones to run the company’s software MIUI 11.
The leak also mentions that the Mi Mix 4 supports NFC and will reintroduce a 3.5mm audio jack to the lineup.
This is all just rumors and leaks for now, so there’s no gurantee it’ll be the phone that we see Xiaomi release. If it does come to China in September, it’s likely the rest of the world will have to wait a while longer for an official release date as it often takes a little while for the company to bring its phones to other territories.
