A new Xiaomi smartphone, with the model number 24053PY09C, has recently been certified by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). Although the official name of the device is yet to be revealed, there are strong indications that it could be none other than the much-anticipated Xiaomi Civi 4.

Despite MIIT certification not providing an exhaustive list of specifications, it does offer some valuable insights. For instance, the device will be 5G compatible, making it part of Xiaomi’s expanding roster of next-gen smartphones.

There have been whispers about the Xiaomi Civi 4 for quite some time now, and Grand Theft Auto suggests that this new offering from Xiaomi could be a significant upgrade. The rumor mill has churned out details about its display, design, and camera specifications.

According to sources, the Xiaomi Civi 4 will come with a 1.5K flat display covered by a 2.7D micro curved glass similar to the one seen in Xiaomi’s 14 series. This design choice is reminiscent of high-end smartphones, offering a visually appealing and modern look.

Moreover, the phone’s camera department could be its standout feature. Leaked information reveals that it will boast a Leica co-branded quad-camera setup, with a 50MP primary sensor leading the charge. This would make the Xiaomi Civi 4 the first non-Xiaomi series phone to carry Leica branding, which is renowned for delivering premium image quality.

The Xiaomi Civi 4 is also rumored to adopt a metal frame and glass back, further cementing its position as a flagship contender. In terms of battery life, reports suggest that it will pack a battery with a capacity exceeding 5,000mAh, along with fast charging support. The exact wattage is yet to be confirmed but could potentially reach up to 100W or even 120W, providing users with ample power to last throughout the day.

What sets the Xiaomi Civi 4 apart from its predecessors is its alleged use of Qualcomm’s upcoming SM8635 (Snapdragon 8s Gen 3) processor. This new SoC, expected to be unveiled on March 18th alongside the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3, promises improved performance and efficiency. Xiaomi’s early adoption of this chipset could give the Civi 4 a substantial edge over competitors in its price range.

However, the exact launch date for the Xiaomi Civi 4 remains uncertain. Previous reports hinted at a May release window. If this holds true, it would follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, the Xiaomi Civi 3, which was also unveiled in May last year. The Civi 4 looks poised to build on its predecessor’s slim design and Dimensity 8200-Ultra processor, but with the added power and imaging prowess offered by the new SoC.

Stay tuned as we continue to monitor developments surrounding the Xiaomi Civi 4 and bring you updates as soon as more information becomes available.
