The plan for the release of flagship Xiaomi smartphone for this year has not yet fulfilled. The well-known insider Digital Chat Station assures that at the end of the third quarter or already in the fourth, the company will release a new premium smartphone. With what name it will enter the market, the insider does not say.
According to him, one of the new features will be a sub-screen camera of a new generation. It is expected that the quality of photos created on it will be no worse than those created on conventional cameras embedded in the display area. In order to ensure a sufficient level of light transmission in the area of the image sensor, the company will install a special display with a special arrangement of pixels, which will ensure the operation of the camera without sacrificing image quality.
Among other characteristics of the flagship is the Snapdragon 888 or Snapdragon 888 Pro (Plus) chipset, as well as 100W fast charging. The totality of the characteristics of the device makes us speculate that the new premium smartphone could be the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, which, according to its status, is being actively wooed by insiders with a flagship chip and a camera under the display surface.
