Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 Looks AMAZING!


So the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is now Official,we've come a long way, this is the first ever device with a proper In-Display Camera, Finally a device without any Notches or Punch Hole or Moving parts like Sliding Mechanism. The Official Specifications are now out, so is the design, So this is all about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4.

Now main highlight of this device is a 6.67 inches display, this is a 1080P Panel, with Gorrila Glass Vicus on top, Display contains all elements which you can find in a Max out Flagship device, what you cannot find is the In-Display 20MP Camera, Display on top of Camera contains space in sub pixel, so that the Sensor can grab light and take some amazing shots, this along with hiding the Camera inside display... So this is an amazing solution, you can see how it hides itself.. Xiaomi says with the MIUI Camera, this can take some amazing selfei images. This is a 60 hz 90 hz 120Hz Quad Curve Display, but with a rectangular boxy finish, nothing like the XIaomi Mi 11.

Mix 4 is getting some new colors, Shadow Greenish Blue, Ceramic Grey and Ceramic White.Back Finish is quite similar to Samsung S20 Ultra, Main HMX Sensor, supports OIS, 13MP Super Wide, 8MP Telephoto lens with 5X Optical zoom with OIS. I'm not a fan of that HMX Sensor, coz it got some serious focus issues, can be seen the Camera Specificattions is not their main highlight. Here are some Camera samples, and as always they look nice.



There were some last minute changes in the Specifications, We have a 120W Fast Charging, Xiaomi claims it can go 80% in 10 mins, and in 21mins, full 100%. The Battery size is 4500mAh, not that huge, Wireless charging is tone down to 50W due to some helth laws in China,So i guess if this goes on we wont see any massive 80W or 200W fast charging ever.

Some other Specifications are IP68, Nice, Qualcomms 888+ in which Cortex-X1 has got a clock speed of 2.995GHz, there are some AI improvements too. LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 Storage.

Xiaomi have made varitey of cases official, they all look nice.

So now about the Pricing, The Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 Starts 4999 Yuan which is Insane, like I was not expecting such amazing pricing. It goes to 6299 yuan for max out variant.
