Today, Xiaomi Mall announced that Xiaomi Civi can receive a 100 yuan ($16) coupon. This reduces the price of this smartphone to 2499 yuan ($394) (8GB + 128GB). This is the first official price reduction for this device which is considered Xiaomi’s most beautiful smartphone. Xiaomi Civi can be called the pinnacle of Xiaomi mobile phone industrial design.
According to the Chinese manufacturer, in order to create a high-value Xiaomi Civi, the R&D team simulated the softest 0.013-0.018mm real fluff texture with reference to the hair patterns of Angora rabbits, ragdoll cats, and Maltese dogs, so as to create a mobile phone. The feel of this smartphone is absolutely sleek and you will want to keep touching it.
Specifically, Xiaomi Civi uses the velvet AG process for the first time. Relative to the traditional AG process, the velvet AG process has a new flash diamond effect. This will make the device have a more shining visual perception under the light. At the same time, blue and pink also have a magic color gradient effect.
In terms of parameters, Xiaomi Civi uses a 6.55-inch curved OLED screen with a resolution of FHD+ and a refresh rate of 120Hz. It also comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor and up to 8GB of RAM. In the camera department, this smartphone boasts a 32MP front selfie camera and a 64MP main AI rear camera. It uses a triple camera setup on the rear. To keep its lights on, this smartphone comes with a 4500 mAh battery.
