In September 2019, to succeed the Xiaomi MIX 3, the Chinese company announced the Mi MIX Alpha, a concept that surprised many by having the first 108 megapixel camera on the market and a screen that completely enveloped the terminal. Then came the Mi MIX Fold, the brand’s first folding, and, almost two years later, we finally met the true successor to the Mi MIX family, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4.
Now, everything indicates that Xiaomi is already preparing the next generation of its MIX family. The first rumors about the possible Xiaomi MIX 5 tell us that the camera will play a major role. In addition, some renders and specifications have been leaked that, as expected, will place it at the top of the manufacturer’s catalog.
Up to 200x digital zoom
Several Chinese media have already published the first renderings of the future Xiaomi MIX 5 along with some specifications. In addition, they assure that the new Xiaomi flagship, already without the surname Mi, will arrive in the middle of the year that we have just started.
In the images, we can see a front completely dominated by a 6.89-inch flat screen with 2K resolution, a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a hidden camera under the panel. At the rear, we see a large circular module to house the main camera, made up of five sensors.
The gigantic main sensor, located in the center, would offer a resolution of 100 MP and would have a telescopic lens capable of reaching a 15x optical zoom and a digital zoom of, attention, 200x, with the possibility of adjusting the focus and aperture in real time.It would be accompanied by another 48 MP sensor, a 40 MP ultra wide angle, a 13 MP telephoto lens and a ToF 3D lens, although the resolution of these sensors varies from one filtration to another.
Inside, according to rumors, the Xiaomi MIX 5 will be equipped with the latest from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and the self-developed S3 chip, which improves photography in night scenes and speeds up image processing.
To power itself, it will have a 5,000 mAh battery compatible with 200 W fast charging and 50 W wireless fast charging. This would achieve a full charge in 10 minutes. In any case, as we always say, we will have to wait for the official presentation to find out if, finally, the MIX 5 has all these features on board.
