In September 2022, Xiaomi released its Xiaomi Civi 2 model powered by the Snapdragon 7 Gen1 chipset, the best you can get in the premium-mid range segment from Qualcomm. However, the latest news from the industry hints that the company is looking forward to releasing the next model.
This morning, the famous blogger @DigitalChatStation (on Weibo) revealed the specifications of a new Xiaomi device which is most probably the Xiaomi Civi 3, as reported through sources.
The blogger stated that the new Xiaomi Civi 3 features a dual-notched display that supports a higher Full-HD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. It is worth mentioning that the previous model also has the exact resolution and refresh rate in terms of display.
Dimensity 8200, the latest sub-flagship chipset from Mediatek, will be powered inside the phone. The chipset is the latest sub-flagship SoC option in the industry and is also the direct competitor of the Snapdragon 7 series chipset.
In terms of specifications, the Dimensity 8200 is based on a 4nm ultra-efficient manufacturing process and has the following cores: 4x Cortex-A78 Performance cores (one is clocked @3.1GHz and rest three cores are @3.0GHz) and 4x Cortex-A55 Energy-efficient cores (clocked @2.0GHz). The chipset also got 4MB L3 cache memory.
In the camera section, the all-new Xiaomi Civi 3 will feature 2x 32MP lenses on the front and a 50MP Sony IMX800 lens on the backside. It is worth mentioning that the Sony IMX800 is a 54MP lens, which is why there is little doubt about the camera specifications and camera lens arrangement of the Xiaomi Civi 3, as stated by the blogger.
Through some sources, it is also reported that the number of cameras on the backside would remain at three (just like the previous Xiaomi Civi 2), and the rest two camera lenses might be an 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro/telephoto lens.
We can expect the launch of the next-generation Xiaomi Civi series model at the start of the 2nd quarter of 2023 (April), as judged by the past practices of Xiaomi.
