Xiaomi has been aggressively expanding its smartphone portfolio, but the brand is silent about one of its popular devices – the Mi MIX. While the Mi MIX 4 took the longest time to appear on the global stage, reports in the air now indicate that its successor may be baked in the oven.
The official launch may take months, but the phone is believed to have appeared on Geekbench with model number 2203121C. Rumors indicate the model number to belong to the Xiaomi MIX 5 codenamed ‘Thor’. The Geekbench listing reveals that the smartphone scores 1257 in the single-core test and 3456 in the multi-core score test.
In terms of specifications, the upcoming Xiaomi MIX 5 could be equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. The processor is paired with 12GB of RAM. We do expect some other storage configurations though. The smartphone is tipped to run Android 12 with MIUI 13 custom skin on top.
Xiaomi MIX 5 Specifications (rumoured)
Screen size details have not been disclosed, but the rumor mill has listed some key aspects of the alleged MIX 5 device. The phone is expected to pack a triple rear camera setup that includes a 50-megapixel sensor with OIS, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom. A 48-megapixel front sensor can be found in the phone for selfie. Reports have led to heavy speculation of the brand unveiling the new Surge C2 chipset alongside the MIX 5 series.
To recall, Xiaomi MIX 4 was launched globally last year with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ processor, 108-megapixel triple rear camera setup, 12GB RAM and 512GB internal storage. The MIX 4 was the brand’s first commercial device with an under-display camera. The phone came with ceramic finish, 6.7-inch AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, 4,500mAh battery with 120W superfast charging support. The MIX 4 didn’t debut in any market other than China, and we doubt whether the company will bring its successor to global markets, including India.
