A few days ago, Xiaomi officially released the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. This flagship smartphone is the first regular smartphone in the MIX series over the past three years. After the release of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 back in 2018, we had the Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha and Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold but both are not regular smartphones. Interestingly, just a few days after the launch of the MIX 4, there is information about an upcoming MIX flagship smartphone.
According to reports, a brand-new MIX flagship with model number “21081118SC” is in the public domain. There are speculations that this smartphone will support a 5000 mAh battery, 120W wired fast charging, and 50W wireless fast charging.
The reports so far show that this device uses the same charging specification as the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. However, the battery capacity of this flagship is larger than that in the MIX 4. This means that this upcoming MIX flagship will have a larger size. Presently, we only have speculations and nothing concrete for now.
Considering that the Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold uses a 5000 mAh battery, it is more likely for the MIX Fold2 to use a 5000 mAh battery than the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. Thus, the most popular speculation is that this device will probably be the MIX Fold2.
From previous reports, the Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold2 will officially arrive in Q4. This smartphone will use an under-display camera like the MIX 4. This will make it possible to make video calls and take selfies with the internal screen. This is more convenient than the previous MIX Fold that only permits an external screen + rear camera for video calls.
There are reports that the MIX Fold2 will continue to use the external folding screen. In addition to the proactive upgrade of the front camera, Xiaomi will also upgrade the internal and external screens. These displays will support a high refresh rate which will be another plus for this device.
For now, the Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold2 will use the Snapdragon 888 SoC as well as a 108MP main camera. The liquid lens should not be absent. From the speculations so far, the Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold2 will not come with much hardware upgrade relative to the previous generation. It will only introduce the under-display camera and increase the screen refresh rate. Do you think the upcoming MIX Flagship is the Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold2 or the MIX 5?
