Xiaomi Civi turned six months old and the company decided it was time to upgrade the smartphone. A new product is in preparation for release, which can enter the market as Xiaomi Civi Pro or Xiaomi Civi 2. It will launch as early as March or April this year.
The first rumors about the upcoming Xiaomi Civi Pro
The smartphone should be awarded a 120-Hz OLED display with a diagonal of 6.55 inches and FullHD + resolution. The Snapdragon 778G chipset or the new Snapdragon 778+ can be the hardware platform. On the back side of Xiaomi Civi Pro or Xiaomi Civi 2, a trio of sensors will be available, where, in addition to the main one, they will offer a wide-angle and a macro module. An optical stub will not be available for the smartphone, this is the prerogative of the flagships.
Xiaomi Civi Pro or Xiaomi Civi 2 should run a preinstalled Android 12 operating system with MIUI 13 interface. The battery capacity is not specified, but we can say that it will be at least 4500 mAh and will offer support for fast charging with a capacity of at least 67 watts. It is assumed that the smartphone, like Xiaomi Civi, will become exclusive to the Chinese market.
