Samsung is hosting a Galaxy Unpacked event on August 11, where it will launch Galaxy Z Fold 3, which is expected to feature an in-display selfie camera. A day prior, Xiaomi will announce the much-anticipated Mi Mix 4. All rumors point to it being the company’s first phone with an in-display camera. Today, we will look at what to expect from the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 4.
Mi Mix lineup Overview
Unlike the Mi lineup that is more of a mainstream flagship device, the Mi Mix lineup is more about innovation. Take the Mi Mix Alpha as an example. The device with a one-of-a-kind wrap-around screen was announced in 2019, and only a handful of them reached the public eye.
Mi Mix lineup had commercial flagship, too, the last one being the aforementioned Mi Mix 3 5 G from 2019. The regular Mi Mix 3 was launched even earlier in 2018. Here, we are looking at 3 years of gap between the Mi Mix 4 and its immediate predecessor.
Mi Mix 4 Rumors Roundup:
According to a popular leakster Ice Universe, Mi Mix 4 will feature an in-display selfie camera. He also shared a picture of what the display would look like. Unlike the Galaxy Z Fold 3 renders from the same source, there is no trace of the camera in the Mi Mix 4.
This could mean that Xiaomi’s in-display camera technology will have low-light transmittance, which would affect the quality of the picture. On the other hand, it would look and feel better during everyday use.
