Xiaomi has launched the Civi 2 as the newest member of the Civi series. It is a direct successor to the first-generation Civi that launched last year. The unique thing about the phone is that it has a dual selfie camera setup. However, the pill for housing the camera is designed in a way to mimic iPhone 14 Pro's Dynamic Island.
The Xiaomi Civi 2 sports a 6.55-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is a 10-bit panel with 240Hz touch sampling rate, 800 nits peak brightness, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and DCI-P3 wide color gamut support. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 processor coupled with 8GB and 12GB RAM. The onboard storage options include 128GB and 256GB.
The triple rear camera setup features a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture. The other two cameras are a 20-megapixel ultrawide angle sensor and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. The phone has 32-megapixel dual cameras on the front whereas the second one is a wide-angle sensor.
The whole package is powered by a 4,500mAh battery and is supported by 67W fast charging. The phone has an in-display fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C port. It will boot MIUI 13 based on Android 12 out of the box. The Civi 2 starts at CNY 2,399 (about $335) for the base model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The 8GB/256GB variant will cost CNY 2,499 (about $348) and the 12GB/256GB variant will cost CNY 2,799 (about $390). It will be sold in Blue, Black, and Pink color options.
