Xiaomi last month unveiled the Mi Mix 3 5G variant that comes with Snapdragon X50 modem. But that new model wasn’t a full-fledged upgrade to the Mi Mix 3 smartphone. Now, the Chinese company has teased a new Mi Mix model that could emerge as the new Mi Mix 4. This new Xiaomi phone is rumoured to sport a triple rear camera setup and will reportedly come with a Snapdragon 855 SoC. We can also safely expect a large screen-to-body ratio, which has so far been one of the highlights of the Mi Mix family.
Without detailing any specifics, Xiaomi has teased a new Mi Mix-series smartphone in a Weibo post. The post features an image that essentially shows off the three generations of the Mi Mix family, including the Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2 ₹ 29,999, and Mi Mix 3. Alongside the three models, there is a white space that presumably designed for the next-generation Mi Mix model.
To recall, Xiaomi brought the Mi Mix concept phone with a bezel-less experience back in October 2016. It upgraded the new form factor by launching the Mi Mix 2 in November 2017. The Beijing-based company also brought the Mi Mix 2S last year with improved cameras.
The Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2, and Mi Mix 2S had a selfie camera at the bottom side of their display panels. However, in October last year, Xiaomi brought the Mi Mix 3 that debuted with a slider design. This was aimed to enable ultra-thin bezels on the device.
As we mentioned, the Mi Mix 3 also received a 5G variant last month that comes with a Snapdragon 855 SoC, along with the X50 modem.
Xiaomi hasn’t revealed any details around the next Mi Mix smartphone. However, it is rumoured to come with a triple camera setup that would have a periscope lens — similar to what Oppo had showcased last year. The new Mi Mix model could also have Snapdragon 855 SoC along with 5G support.
