The Xiaomi Mix 4 may not be Xiaomi’s foray into under-display cameras, but its the first time Xiaomi is pushing this tech into the market, making it available for enthusiasts to purchase. Laying aside this under-display camera, the Mix 4 offers in a high-end flagship package that happens to cost less than a large majority of the players in this category.
The Xiaomi Mix 4 design may not be an exact replica of another Xiaomi smartphone, but it does sort of remind of the Xiaomi Mi Ultra, which may be due to the fact that both device strive for a clean slate.
Offcourse, the star of this design lies in the front panel. Xiaomi was able to attain a clain slate all thanks to its under display camera tech. This means there are no notches, punch hole camera, cut-outs e.t.c
As mentioned in the introductory paragraph, this isn’t the first time Xiaomi is showcasing this tech, but its the first time its being commercialised.
Aside from having the cameras under the display, Xiaomi also place an optical fingerpint sensor under the display, which isn’t new anymore, considering the fact that we have seen a lot of smartphones in the past with this tech.
Flipping the device to get a rear view reveals a round edge square camera module holding triple cameras. Also on the rear, is the Xiaomi branding, which indicates its a Xiaomi smartphone.
