Xiaomi has finally unveiled Mi MIX 4 in China. As the hype has made this apparent already, the device features an in-display camera tech that Xiaomi has named CUP (Camera Under Display) tech.
Xiaomi has refreshed its Mi MIX lineup of smartphones after years; the first phone in the Mi MIX series was announced nearly three years ago. The new phone Mi MIX 4 features a true bezel-less and notchless design and yes there is no cutout for the hole-punch as well. It is just a large 6.67-inch screen from top to bottom without any cutouts whatsoever. The 20MP selfie camera sits beneath this 6.67-inch AMOLED display. The whole panel is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus and features a 120HZ refresh rate and FHD+ resolution.
Xiaomi explains the CUP tech matches the pixel density, brightness, and color details of the screen for a seamless viewing experience. The company claims the Mi MIX 4 combines the hardware and software capabilities so to “ensure the photographs and videos captured using the front camera retain true colors and details.”
Xiaomi further explains that it has designed a special circuit that minimizes light diffraction. Also, a new transparent curved wiring Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) material coupled with imaging algorithms helps to minimize the diffraction further.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is the first phone to be announced with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 888 Plus processor. It is paired with 8GB or 12GB RAM and 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB storage. On the rear panel, the phone gets 108MP ISOCELL HMX main sensor with OIS, joined by an optically optimized 8MP periscope module with 5x optical zoom, and a third sensor is 13MP ultrawide snapper.
The Mi MIX 4 gets a 4,500mAH battery capacity with 120W wired charging which can charge the battery in just 15 minutes. It also gets 50W wireless charging support which takes 28 minutes for a full recharge.
