In October last year, Xiaomi had introduced the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 smartphone and its 5G edition was announced in Europe in the previous month. Through a new Weibo post, the company has teased the arrival of a new Mi MIX series phone. Could it be the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4?
Neither the teaser nor the Weibo post has any mentioning of the Mi MIX 4 moniker. However, the image suggests that it is the next flagship model in the series. In October 2016, Xiaomi had launched the Mi MIX concept phone with ceramic rear and tri-bezeless display. The Mi MIX 2 that was unveiled in November 2017 arrived with the same design.
The handset was succeeded by Mi MIX 3 in October 2018. It had arrived with a slider design which allowed it to boast a higher screen-to-body ratio. The company had also announced the Mi MIX 2S as an upgraded edition of the Mi MIX 2S in March 2018. There is no confirmation on whether the company has any plans to launch a phone with Mi MIX 3S moniker. The arrival of Mi MIX 3S seems unlikely since it has recently launched the Mi MIX 3 5G edition. Probably, the company could be hinting the arrival of the Mi MIX 4.
The Mi MIX phones are usually introduced in early fourth quarter of the year. Now that the company has released a teaser for an upcoming Mi MIX phone, it appears that the Mi MIX 4 may debut early this year. Each generation of Mi MIX series have offered surprises in design. Hence, the Mi MIX 4 is expected to offer a higher screen space than the Mi MIX 3. It is also rumored to arrive with triple camera setup equipped with a periscope lens.
A recent report had revealed that the Xiaomi may soon announce the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 5G phone in China. It is advisable to wait for further reports to confirm whether the company could be teasing the Mi MIX 3 5G edition for China or the Mi MIX 4 with a surprising new design.
