Xiaomi is gearing up to launch several smartphones amidst Coronavirus outbreak in China. The latest development is that a Mi Community user claims ownership of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. The user took to Weibo with the revelation that he is currently working with Mi MIX 4 handset.

However, the device is not yet released and this has raised a lot of speculations among the tech community. It is virtually not possible to work with Mi MIX 4 currently because Xiaomi is yet to release the device. That being said, things can change in the tech world and everything is possible in the current digital world. There are no clear indications that the specific user has indeed posted the comment on MI Community using Mi MIX 4.

On the benchmarking front, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 has already found its way into the GeekBench 5 database. According to the GeekBench 5 data, Mi MIX 4 has pegged a single-core score of 728 against the multi-core score of 2776. The Geekbench data reveals the presence of 6GB RAM on top of Android 9 Pie.

When compared with Xiaomi Mi 9, the Mi MIX 4 carries identical core scores. While the single-core score is better with Mi 9, the multi-core score of Mi MIX 4 has overtaken Mi 9 data by a few miles. The Mi MIX 4 will most likely ship with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor alongside 5G support.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 Specifications – Expected

The Mi MIX 3 flaunts a 6.39-inch (1080×2340, 403 PPI) Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 845 processor, Adreno 630 graphics loaded with MIUI 10 on top of Android 9.0 Pie operating platform. The smartphone is available in 6GB, 8GB and 10GB RAM paired with 128GB and 256GB UFS 2.1 storage capacities respectively. We expect a bigger display and storage up to 512GB in the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX 4.

On the optics, the Mi MIX 3 carries a dual camera comprising of 12MP wide and telephoto sensors. You can expect quad-camera in the upcoming Mi MIX 4 based on the latest specifications. The front side offers a 24MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary camera with pop-up functionality.

The Mi MIX 3 borrows power via the 3200mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. The handset also provides support for 10W wireless charging. We expect the inclusion of a 4000mAh battery in the new edition.

Based on our own calculations, the Mi MIX 4 will ship with 5G support. The manufacturers are now speeding up their gears by launching a series of 5G smartphones. Realme X50 Pro 5G smartphone is scheduled to launch today although the 5G mobile connectivity is an unfulfilled distant dream in India. The Coronavirus outbreak has shattered the dreams of smartphone manufacturers since the factories are shut for an extended time even after the lunar new year holidays.
