With the arrival of the Chinese 11.11 (Double 11) annual sales, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is now selling for less than 4000 yuan ($626) on some platforms. This is quite attractive for a high-performing flagship smartphone. So far, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 has received a good market response and the company is already developing its successor. According to popular Weibo leakster, @DCS, the Xiaomi MIX 5 will arrive on schedule. Furthermore, he revealed that the progress of this smartphone seems to be faster than the MIX 4.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 was released on August 10 this year, and it marks the return of the MIX series after 3 years. From the speculations and rumors so far, the Xiaomi MIX 5 will arrive in June or July next year. However, there are reports that this device could launch earlier. According to @DCS, the Xiaomi MIX 5 has not been finalized. As of now, many aspects are still in the verification stage. It appears that this upcoming flagship will introduce more new technologies.
Relative to the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4, the MIX 5 is expected to use a 2K 120Hz visual CPU full screen. This smartphone will also come with the Snapdragon 898 SoC and will use a 16GB + 1TB combination. Furthermore, Xiaomi will do all it can to reduce the weight of this device. This flagship smartphone should also come with a more powerful CMOS, better heat dissipation, and faster-charging speed.
Xiaomi will improve its display and camera
According to recent reports from @DCS, Xiaomi’s next-generation flagship is developing customized high-resolution under-screen proactive specifications. This solution will have a more refined screen effect than the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4, perhaps up to 2K level resolution. If this is possible, it will be at the same level as regular mainstream flagships. Unfortunately, increasing the camera shooting effect means decreasing the screen quality. While Xiaomi was able to increase the under-screen camera output, the display can not be high resolution. This is an area that requires development and is a bit regrettable for many.
We expect that by next year, the effect of the under-screen camera will be better. Thus, there will be no need to make a choice between screen quality and screen performance. This will greatly promote the popularization of under-screen proactive cameras. In another report, @DCS also claims that the 200W wired fast charging for smartphones will enter mass production next year. Of course, the expectations, for now, are that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 5 will launch both the 200W fast charging and the new display. This will obviously make the Xiaomi Mi MIX 5 a flagship killer. This device is worth looking forward to.
