Mi Mix 4: launch date, leaks, everything you need to know

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 was finally confirmed after months of speculation and many years of people believing it was canceled. This is the follow-up to 2018’s Mi Mix 3, and a lot has changed in three years for Xiaomi. It launched alongside the Mi Pad 5 at a big event in China.

Xiaomi’s Mi Mix line is Xiaomi’s attempt to make all-screen phones. This means that any big notch or bezel doesn’t break up the display, and there is no cut-out for the camera. The Mi Mix 3 had a pop-up segment that concealed the front-facing camera. But the Mi Mix 4 does it differently.

This is right. It is the third phone to use an under-display camera. The ZTE phones and the ZTE phones were the first.

This is not the only thing, however. It seems like a premium smartphone that boasts top-of-the-line specs in many areas. The handset’s camera specs are not the best, but they suggest that it won’t be a flagship with all-around top-end features.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 price and release date

Although the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 was launched on August 10, it was only available in China, as many of Xiaomi’s other launches. We could see a global reveal within a few months, or the handset may only be available in China.

The phone costs CNY 4,999 for 8GB RAM with 128GB storage. In China, that converts to approximately $770, PS560, and AU$1,050. However, prices are higher in other countries (except the US, where Xiaomi does not release their phones). So if the Mi Mix 4 becomes global, expect a higher price.

You can also get a CNY 599 (roughly $820 PS590, AU$1,110), version with 8GB RAM, 256GB storage and a CNY 7,799 (about $890 PS650, AU$1,220), model with 12GB RAM, 256GB storage and a CNY 6,299 device (around $970 PS700, AU$1,320) with 12GB RAM, 512GB storage.

Design and display

As we’ve mentioned, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4’s main selling point is its ‘CUP’ as Xiaomi calls it, or ‘camera-under-panel.’ This is a selfie camera, which sits below the panel at its top-center. The LEDs appear to be smaller in this area to aid it.

It is a 6.67 inch AMOLED screen, which Xiaomi seems to be very fond of. It also supports HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+. The resolution is 2400×1080, which is Full HD+. This is pretty standard for a smartphone.

The screen curves at the edges. However, the tapering appears quite gentle, so don’t expect a Huawei Mate and Motorola Edge-type slope.

Corning Gorilla Glass Victus is used in the body of this smartphone, which includes many Xiaomi models. It’s a severe form of glass. Glass isn’t the most complex material on the planet, but this version is. The device is available in black, white, and gray versions.

The phone’s back has a square camera bump. It looks like a combination of the Mi 11 Ultra and Mi 11 Ultra panels. However, it doesn’t cover much of the back. The thick camera bumps are annoying, and Xiaomi didn’t notice this in our Ultra review.

Although the handset features a USB-C port, it does not have a 3.5mm headphone socket. This is no surprise considering many smartphones come with three pieces: the front, frame, and back. The Mi Mix 4, however, has a unibody design so that they are all one piece.

This makes it look very premium and will likely make the item quite challenging, but it’ll probably increase that price as well.

Camera and battery

The 20MP front-facing camera of the Mi Mix 4 is hidden under the display. We haven’t seen this camera on any other phones we tested, so we are curious to see if Xiaomi has a solution.

Three rear cameras are available. The primary camera has a resolution of 108MP and is joined by an 8MP periscope snapper for 50x digital zoom and a 13MP ultra-wide camera. These camera specs are a good indicator that the Mi Mix 4 doesn’t have the all-around premium features of the Mi 11 Ultra.

Although the battery has a capacity of 4,500mAh, it is pretty large. However, the battery’s life will depend on the software optimizations and the cell’s size. The phone charges very well, using 120W. This is a feat that not many devices can reach. The device will go full in less than 20 minutes.

The wireless charging speed is 50W. This is super-fast. However, Xiaomi phones have used this spec before, so it is not new.

Specifications and features

This phone sounds powerful with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus chipset. It is the best Android processor at launch. The Snapdragon 888 Mi 11 Ultra was harmed by overheating. It became surprisingly weak when used for extended periods.

It seems probable, given that Xiaomi spent a lot of time on the Mi Mix 4 launch detailing the built-in cooling systems. The phone should stay just a few degrees cooler when it is being used intensively or charged.

The Mi Mix 4 will likely be running MIUI, Xiaomi’s fork Android. It offers a few customization options as well as a different design than stock Android. Although MIUI is a bit buggy, some users find its customizations and aesthetics make up for it.
