Xiaomi is well-known for surprising the audience
Back in 2019, Xiaomi out-of-nowhere unveiled the conceptual edition of the Mi MIX Alpha when all were expecting a Mi Mix 4. It had a futuristic design with a display covering almost the entire body with a near 100% screen-body ratio.
The next-gen Mi Mix has been a mystery till now but a few patents indicate that the company could have finally achieved a prototype that is ready for hitting the retail stores. However, nothing about the device has been leaked so far.
Further, Xu said that the new products released as a part of the event will have a special meaning and that’s evident in the posters for the Mi 10 and K30 extreme editions. Speaking of which, the Mi 10 Extreme commemorative edition is expected to have a 120Hz AMOLED display, Snapdragon 865, support 100W wired and 55W wireless charging.
The K30, on the other hand, is speculated to be the K30 Ultra that was rumoured a while ago. It could sport Mediatek’s Dimensity 1000+ SoC, have 64MP camera, 4500mAh battery with 33W fast charging. Nevertheless, we are sure to get more products on August 11th and let’s wait for a few days to know more about them.
