Xiaomi first revealed the Xiaomi Civi in September of last year. The gadget was a tremendous hit in China, and it made multiple headlines. The phone has several nice specs, including a 120 Hz OLED display, 55W quick charging, and reasonable pricing. Unfortunately, even though worldwide buyers eagerly awaited this device, it never made it to the rest of the world. Despite this, Xiaomi appears to be paving the way for a Xiaomi Civi 2.
The Xiaomi Civi 2 is reportedly on the way, according to leaked reports. However, contrary to popular belief, it will be more of an “incremental update.” The new phone will include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC, which should be the most noticeable difference between it and its predecessor. Along with the upgraded chipset, the phone will ship with Android 12, which should come as no surprise. Furthermore, it will ship with MIUI 13 out of the box, as this is Xiaomi’s most recent operating system version. The Xiaomi Civi 2’s other features should stay unaltered. That means the charging technologies, cameras, and displays should all be unaffected. Xiaomi may even stick with the original design with minor tweaks.
When compared to the non-Plus model, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G delivers a 20% increase in CPU and GPU performance. As a consequence, the Xiaomi Civi should outperform its predecessor. However, in real-world usage, the difference should be negligible. For the time being, there is no official information on the Xiaomi Civi 2’s release date. We may see it in the next few months. The key issue is whether it will be available in global markets or remain a China-only smartphone portfolio.
SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE XIAOMI CIVI 2
To get a fair idea of what the Xiaomi Civi 2 will provide, we may look back at its predecessors’ specs. The Xiaomi Civi 2 will most likely keep its predecessor’s 6.55-inch OLED display with Full HD+ quality. Furthermore, we might anticipate a refresh rate of 120 Hz and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The phone also includes a front-facing camera with a resolution of 32 MP. We have a 64 MP primary camera, an 8 MP ultrawide snapper, and a 2 MP macro snapper on the back.
Under the hood, the upcoming Xiaomi Civi 2 will bring the Snapdragon 778G+ with up to 12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 2.2 storage. The phone has a 4,500 mAh battery with 55W fast charging. It will get an in-display fingerprint scanner.
There are also some rumors suggesting the launch of the Xiaomi Civi Pro. Only the time will confirm what Xiaomi really has in tow for this lineup. Until then, Xiaomi keeps cutting the original Civi’s price making it an attractive deal.
