Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 comes out on August 10: it’s revolutionary

Finally there's certainty: Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 is coming and it will do so on August 10. Here's what to expect from Xiaomi's most expensive smartphone ever.

After a long series of rumors and an equally long absence from the market, Xiaomi's Mi Mix series is finally back to being concrete and topical. The revolutionary Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 is there on the stage by now, ready for the moment when the veils will be removed and the audience of enthusiasts will once again be able to discover innovation according to Xiaomi.

The Mi Mix series in fact was inaugurated in November 2016 with a product that was innovative to say the least, which at first surprised everyone and would continue to do so in the following months, when usually the air of novelty dissolves and gives way to sales results. With the first Mi Mix it doesn't happen, because nobody before had seen a smartphone with a display so large compared to the front surface, so the smartphone remains topical for a long time. Jukka Savolainen, curator of the National Design Museum of Finland, will state, "Xiaomi Mi Mix indicates the future direction of smartphone design." And the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 is preparing to do so as well, after years of hiatus. Appointment to next August 10, as announced by the official WeChat account of the company through a poster.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 and the camera under the display

To Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 the task of holding high a name that has always brought "wow" in the mouths and minds of fans of technology and innovation. The company is preparing to do so through a device that on the basis of the initial purpose of the series, to maximize the space available to the benefit of the display, in this generation will see the debut of the camera for selfies under the screen.

A technology, what we will find on Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, which presumably took years or several months of work to the designers of the company. The first product to bring to the general public the camera under the screen arrived just a year ago - ZTE Axon 20 - and showed how much work there was still to do to optimize a technology that was still immature, so capable of providing results qualitatively quite distant from those that could be obtained with less daring solutions.

Who knows that Xiaomi was not ready, potentially, to bring Mi Mix 4 on the market even at the end of 2020, but did not want to risk after the failure of Axon 20. Months after that affair we are here, Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 is ready to make its debut and the "long" design time is enough to raise expectations about the camera under the screen.

What to expect from Xiaomi Mi Mix 4

For the rest Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 will be a top of the range "true" to which will lack just a few specifications "cry" because not very functional. As the display, which previously was said to be 1440p and instead, in all likelihood, will be a 1080p (Full HD +): the choice is determined by the fact that, at present, a slightly lower resolution increases the performance of the camera under the display in terms of light collected, so it would be a choice forced by the circumstances.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, which is rumored to be the most expensive Xiaomi ever, will have a first-class equipment: Snapdragon 888 chip, RAM type LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 memories, 5,000 mAh battery with, it is said, wired charging at 120 watts and wireless charging at 70 or 80 watts.
