Xiaomi’s Mi MIX line of devices sits up there as the series that keeps showcasing the innovative side of the Chinese smartphone vendor. Based on the latest reports, it seems the upcoming model, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4, won’t be going against what is now becoming a tradition.
The first edition pushed the bezel-less display narrative that was then perfected by the second-generation Mi MIX 2 and Mi MIX 2S.
In 2018, the Mi MIX 3 introduced a near full-screen featuring a sliding design alongside 5G support and in 2019, the Mi MIX 4 could debut Samsung’s 108MP ISOCELL camera.
According to tipster Ice Universe, Xiaomi will be the first OEM to adopt the massive 108MP camera lens manufactured by Samsung. The ISOCELL sensor is capable of outputting images with a resolution of 12032 x 9024 pixels, but we still don’t know how many other sensors it’ll be paired to.
Big news: Xiaomi announced that it will first adopt Samsung’s 108MP ISOCELL CMOS!
The Mi MIX 3 has a dual-lens camera on the back and a dual-lens selfie shooter. Although we don’t know the design language that Xiaomi will adopt for the Mi MIX 4, what could be welcomed by many is the addition of a third depth-sensing unit to complement the standard and telephoto lenses.
Alternatively, Xiaomi could easily retain the dual-lens setup owing to the massive 108MP standard shooter. This could mean the device misses out on either the telephoto or depth sensor. Hopefully, this won’t be the case even if Xiaomi does decide to go with Samsung’s 108MP camera unit.
While the tipster does mention that the Mi MIX 4 could be the first to adopt this technology, we don’t have a date as to when to expect the phone to arrive. Based on previous release windows, though, the Mi MIX 4 may be unveiled in November 2019, which gives us a few months of speculations.
We will definitely keep an eye on the Mi MIX 4 developments and bring you the latest news, rumors, and leaks as they surface.
