The last Xiaomi smartphone in the MIX series is the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 which arrived in 2017/2018. Since then, there have been no upgrades to this smartphone. After three years on the sidelines, Xiaomi will unveil a new MIX flagship. Most likely, the name of this new MIX flagship will be Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. Considering the space between this device and the previous generation, the upgrade gap will be significant. After numerous leaks and speculations regarding this smartphone, Xiaomi finally revealed that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will launch on August 10th.
After the official announcement of the launch date, @DCS released a new video showing the MIX 4 screen quality. Judging from the video, the screen quality is amazing. In addition to the extremely narrow bezels, ultra-high screen-to-body ratio, and other highlights, the Mi MIX 4 screen realizes a “true fullscreen” without any openings on the screen. According to @DCS, this smartphone will come with a new flexible CUP technology.
From the video, we can see that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 CUP area display is premium. It is worth mentioning that, in addition to the excellent display, the MIX 4 also brings other qualities. This smartphone uses flexible CUP technology, holeless, 100% full-screen, and has a full-pixel display accuracy. According to reports, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 also overcomes the “normally usable” selfie imaging.
Although compared with the traditional “punch screen”, the “CUP full screen” moderately sacrifices the ultimate performance of selfie picture quality. However, it gives users a completely full-screen display that other solutions fall short of. More importantly, it has been more than 3 years from the concept of CUP to the realization of “normal availability” and “mass production”. During this period, Xiaomi had to overcome the cost of investment and technical difficulties.
Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 hardware
While the excellent screen is one of the selling points, the MIX 4 also uses good hardware. This flagship smartphone comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus flagship processor. It will also be one of the first models globally to use this chip. Furthermore, this device will come with a built-in 4,500 mAh large battery that supports 120W fast charging. For the wireless charging capacity, it will be between 70W and 80W. Nevertheless, this will be the highest wireless charging capacity in the industry.
In the smartphone market today, there are many smartphones that claim to be full-screen devices. However, these devices have a part of the screen which is hindered by one sensor or the other. This will not be the case with the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX 4.
