On August 10th, Xiaomi will hold a press conference where it will unveil a couple of devices. However, the protagonist of this event will be the flagship Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. The anticipation for this smartphone is high for several reasons. Firstly, it will be the first regular MIX smartphone after the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3. It is important to note that the MIX 3 was released in November 2018. After the MIX 3, we have had the Mi MIX Alpha and Mi MIX Fold but these are not regular smartphones. Secondly, this device will be the first Xiaomi phone to come with an under-display camera. In other words, it will be Xiaomi’s first truly full-screen smartphone.
The anticipation for this smartphone is now reflecting in its appointment records. Presently, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is open for appointments on multiple platforms. It is available on Mi Mall, JD.com, and Xiaomi’s official Tmall flagship store. As of today, the number of Mi MIX 4 reservations exceeds 230,000.

Specifically, more than 150,000 people have made reservations for Mi MIX 4 on JD.com. On Xiaomi’s official Tmall flagship store, over 80,000 people have made reservations. The total number of reservations on the two platforms exceeds 230,000. This shows that the smartphone is very popular.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will come with a hyperboloid screen with an under-display camera. This screen will support a FHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. 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. According to GeekBench, the Mi MIX 4 has a single-core score of 863 while the multi-core score is 3181. The multi-core score is comfortably higher than its predecessor.
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. As of now, there is no official information on the price of this smartphone. However, we expect it to be the most expensive regular smartphone from Xiaomi. Of course, we know that the Xiaomi Mi Fold is not a regular smartphone.
Lei Jun, the founder, chairman, and CEO of Xiaomi Group emphasized that Xiaomi MIX 4 will never disappoint everyone’s expectations. We will have to wait and see what this device will offer.
