Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, will unveil a couple of flagship smartphones before the year ends. We have already seen the Xiaomi Mi 9 thus we should be expecting some “cheap” flagship from Pocophone and Redmi. However, we should also have a “real” flagship in the Xiaomi Mi Mix series, probably Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. Today, XDA-Developers editor Mishaal Rahman unveiled some specs allegedly belonging to a Xiaomi flagship.
Gizchina News of the week
The flagship smartphone is codenamed “Hercules” and it should feature a Snapdragon 855, NFC, triple rear camera, a single front camera, an on-display fingerprint scanner, and wireless charging. Well, we know that features like the on-display fingerprint scanner and wireless charging make a phone really expensive. Thus this does not fit the price range of Pocophone or Redmi sub-brands. It should be the upcoming flagship in the Mi MIX series, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4.
The previous generations of the Mi MIX series, Xiaomi Mi MIX 3, comes with a true full-screen design using a magnetic slide and the front camera with other sensors are hidden under the screen. Although it is not clear if the Mi MIX 4 will use the same design, the Mi MIX series are known to be notchless. Thus this should be a full-screen notchless smartphone.
