As the official launch date for the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 draws closer, there are more reports regarding this flagship. According to reports, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will officially arrive in August. This smartphone will be the first Xiaomi device to use the under-screen camera technology. With this tech, it will achieve a true full-screen effect. Furthermore, there are reports that this device will use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 Plus chip. However, considering that this device comes with a number of top technologies, we do not expect this smartphone to be cheap. In fact, this device may become Xiaomi’s most expensive regular smartphone.
According to a recent leak, the price of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will start at 5999 yuan ($928). This makes it more expensive than the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra which is currently the most expensive Xiaomi smartphone. With the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, the company now have more confidence to release flagship smartphones at a flagship price.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 previous report
The latest render of this device shows that it will retain the overall square-ish body of the MIX series. However, it will upgrade the internals and design feel. This device will use a curved screen solution, and the border around the screen is very narrow. The curve screen will ensure that the visual experience of the display is premium.
According to news from the supply chain, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will use a screen panel from Huaxing Optoelectronics. Unfortunately, this panel only supports 1080P resolution which is unavoidable. If Xiaomi wants the camera output to be great, the screen details have to drop. However, Xiaomi’s current under-screen front camera technology is relatively mature. The self-developed pixel arrangement has greatly improved the display effect of the camera area. Furthermore, using optimization of the camera algorithm, Xiaomi brings a conventional camera performance to this device. Also, the self-portrait performance and the screen window effect are also great.
In terms of configuration, in addition to the Snapdragon 888 Plus, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will also use a 5000 mAh large battery. Some leaks say that this device will support a 4500 mAh battery. Whatever the case is, it will support 120W fast charging (wire) and the wireless fast charging capacity will be very high (70W or more). However, there is a new policy in preparation that may stop Xiaomi from using above 50W wireless charging. Most likely, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will officially arrive before the policy becomes law.
