This CIVI 2 will be presented on September 27 in China and, if it reaches Western markets, it will do so under a different name. Rumors and leaks suggest that it could be the Xiaomi 13 Lite.
A premium mid-range hardware
The Xiaomi CIVI 2 It does not pretend to be a mid-range of the heap. The leaks point to a truly interesting feature list filled with very attractive components. This is what we know at the moment:
- 6.56-inch screen:
- 120 Hz refresh rate
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1
- Up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM
- Up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage
- 50+8+2 MP triple rear camera
- 32+ dual front camera? PM
- 4,500mAh battery
- Dolby Atmos Support
- Thickness: 7.23mm
- Weight: 171 grams
There is no doubt that Xiaomi wants to place it as one of the more powerful and complete mid-range of the whole scene. If he Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 performs well this device could have little to envy of the cheap high-end ones.
Dual front cameras return to the fray
We haven’t seen a dual front camera on a smartphone in quite some time. Xiaomi has decided to implement it in this CIVI 2. It comes just after the iPhone 14 Pro is presented with the Dynamic Island. Chance?
You should not think that Xiaomi started developing CIVI 2 two weeks ago, so it probably knew about Apple’s decision for months. Or it could also be a complete coincidence.
The interesting thing is that it will arrive with an “island” very similar to Apple’s, although with two cameras instead of a. One of the sensors will be 32 MP and the secondary one will offer a wide-angle lens of which more details are unknown.
A spectacular mid-range with a possible big “but”
It is quite clear that the Xiaomi CIVI 2 It is going to be one of the best devices of 2022 in the Xiaomi catalog. Even if it arrives as the Xiaomi 13 Lite in the West, it will continue with this milestone. But you will also have something that you will not like at all: a very high price.
We have seen Xiaomi raise the prices of its devices to the point of recommending 2021 or 2020 terminals ahead of the current ones. East CIVI 2 or Xiaomi 13 Lite it won’t be any different. If it arrives, it will do so at a price well above the current mid-range of its own catalogue.
The price of your premium design and good performance stays at the gates of a budget to buy a high-end from another brand. What do you think? would you buy it
