Mi MIX 4 Details

Xiaomi has confirmed the the Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, and Mi Notebook Pro to launch at an event in China. Now, Xiaomi has teased the arrival of a Mi MIX phone without revealing the device name. However, speculations are high that this could be called Mi MIX 4 or even Mi MIX Fold, the much awaited first foldable smartphone from Xiaomi. 

The Mi MIX 4 is said to be sighted on the MIUI code blog with a model number K2B. The phone reportedly features a QHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is alleged to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. 

The source also claims Mi MIX 4 to get triple cameras by the back. It may include a 50MP Sony IMX766 main camera, a 48MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 48MP telephoto optics. The camera setup may allow 5x optical zoom, 120x hybrid zoom, and 15x video zoom. 

The company has also teased the use of a Liquid lens instead of a mechanical one on the upcoming MIX, and is aiming for what it calls, ‘Bionic photography’. This could warrant the following theoretical benefits:

  • Faster focus with minimal distortion while overcoming environmental factors.
  • A variable focal length for versatile perspectives on the go.
  • Space thus saved could result in a more compact chassis.
