It is in China that Xiaomi has just unveiled the Civi, a new, solidly equipped mid-range smartphone.
The announcement is interesting because Xiaomi recently mentioned the abandonment of the name “Mi”, the presentation of the Civi could therefore foreshadow a redesign of the names in the manufacturer’s catalog which was not clear until now.
Let us recall that Mi smartphones were available in 4 to 6 different versions and affected all ranges of the market: from premium to high-end smartphones, including mid-range and entry-level.
The CIVI is clearly oriented towards the mid-range for its part and embeds a SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 732 G. It offers a full HD + curved OLED screen of 6, 55 inches at 120 Hz, HDR compatible 10 + and Dolby Vision.
It has three photo sensors: one sensor main of 64 MP at f / 1.8, a wide angle of 8 MP at f / 2.2 and a 2 MP macro module. It also has a 3200 mAh battery and fast charging 41 W.
The design of the Civi is simple and clean: it is only 7 mm thick and its back features a slab of polished glass the most beautiful effect.
Available as of 30 September in China, the Civi will be offered at 2600 yuan (345 €) in 8 GB RAM version and 120 GB of storage. The 8GB version / 256 GB will be billed 2600 yuan (385 €) and the version 12 / 250 Go will be offered at 2900 yuan (425 €), the prices being expressed excluding taxes.
