Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 | 8 Features That Define It As Android’s Best Smartphone

Today, Xiaomi finally released its flagship of the year ‘Xiaomi Mi MIX 4’. The series has been officially continued now after 2 years of absence. The highlight is the design with the beautiful CUP full screen, the under-screen camera technology solving the problem of forehand and the chin as well as punch-hole. It brings new technologies such as lightweight integrated precision ceramics, UWB one-finger connection. In short, we now have a phone with a 100% screen-to-body ratio.

Let’s get into the details and know the phone better:

Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 – Everything We Need To Know

The MIX series was originally a concept phone product launched by Xiaomi 5 years ago. It was intended to feature advanced designs such as full-screen and a ceramic body. It is considered Xiaomi’s pioneer in trying new designs and new technologies.

1. Meet The Industry’s Best Under Display Camera For A Perfect Full-Screen Experience

This time, the full-screen design of Mi MIX 4 took three years to become what it is today which is a complete full-screen design with no borders, notch, or punch-hole. R&D investment of more than 500 million yuan, acquired more than 60 patents and finally succeeded.

What about the front camera performance?

The fourth generation of the MIX series is the first to use micro-diamond arrangement CUP full-screen making the front lens completely disappear. Moreover, this technology doesn’t appear to be decreasing the front camera picture performance at all. Previously, this was quite an issue with the released under-display camera phones.

What about the traces front camera being visible?

Xiaomi first created the micro-diamond arrangement to ensure the number of pixels and the RGB ratio. Under the same condition, the sub-pixel area is reduced, the light-blocking is reduced, and 100% full-pixel display is completed. The density of 400PPI can no longer see the traces of the camera.

In addition, Xiaomi has further improved the CUP display effect through unique circuit design, transparent leads, and other technologies. Finally, on Mi MIX 4, the CUP display area is only 0.2 cm, which only accounts for 0.2% of the entire screen area. The display is perfect.

For selfies, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is equipped with a 20MP front camera supporting 1.6um large pixels. At the same time, it uses Xiaomi’s self-developed CUP full-screen optimization algorithm to improve the problem of the yellowish and darker under-screen cameras and dim pictures. The sharpness is greatly improved, and the picture quality is not much different from that of the conventional front cameras of smartphones.

2. The First Lightweight Integrated Precision Ceramics

The Mi MIX 4 also has a better ceramic body this time. Although the previous ceramic body looks good, the weight was a major problem. In addition to the jade-like feel, the weight of the ceramic is reduced by 30% making it only 225 grams and the thickness of the phone is 8.02mm.

In terms of color matching, in addition to the traditional ceramic black and ceramic white colors, MIX 4 this time also brings a new shadow green and gray color layout. The turquoise and light blue tones are elegant and magnificent.

3. China’s First UWB One-Finger-Connected Smart Device Interconnection

The full name of this technology is Ultra Wide Band or UWB to say, which is ultra-wideband communication. The measurement technology has a wide application prospect.

Xiaomi demonstrated UWB technology last year, which can give phones and smart devices spatial perception capabilities, just like “indoor GPS.” Point the smartphone to the smart device, and the controls will automatically pop up and you can directly control it from the phone.

With UWB technology, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 can be intelligently interconnected with other devices that support UWB technology, and it will automatically connect as long as it points to a device, such as smart TVs, smart home products, and so on.

4. The First Release of Snapdragon 888+ SoC & 6400Mbps LPDDR5 RAM

As the first release of Snapdragon 888 Plus, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 has a CPU core frequency of 3.0GHz, and the AI ​​performance increased by 20% in comparison to the standard SD 888. The Soc is supported by a high-performance LPDDR5 6400Mbps memory and UFS 3.1 flash memory.

For heat dissipation, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 also launched the 3D graphene soaking plate technology this time, which has a higher thermal conductivity and an area of ​​up to 1206 mm2, covering the main heating area on the processor and the motherboard and quickly dissipating heat.

In addition, the performance mode of Mi MIX 4 has also added a new balance mode. Although this mode will also limit performance but guarantees a good daily user experience along with minimum heat generation (a major concern in SD 888 series flagships).

5. Ultra-Fast Charge with 120W Wired and 50W Wireless Charging

Also, the highlight of the Mi MIX 4 is the industry’s fastest wired charging of 120W, along with 50W wireless charging support. With wired charging, it can charge from 0% to 80% charge in 10 minutes, and a full charge in 21 minutes.

The battery capacity is 4500mAh, and it uses a double-string MTW graphene anode lithium electronic cell. The conductivity of this new material is 1000 times that of the traditional carbon black anode. As a result, the charging speed is fast but with minimum heat dissipation.

6. 100MP Primary camera + A distortion-free ultra + 5x optical telephoto

The flagship comes with a premium 100MP triple rear camera setup. Here are the details:

  • Primary camera: 100MP Samsung HMX sensor, 1/1.33 inch CMOS, true 100MP, support 1.6um large pixel and OIS.
  • Secondary camera: 12MP ultra-wide sensor, FOV 120 degrees, 12mm focal length, free-form surface lens generating less than 1% of dissortion.
  • Third camera:  8MP telephoto lens, supports 5x optical zoom, OIS, 120mm focal length.
