Following the lead of Sony, it looks like Xiaomi is planning to launch a smartphone with a 4K display. Believed to be the Xiaomi CC11 Pro (now replaced with the new Xiaomi CIVI lineup), the handset has passed through Chinese certification authority TENAA with the model number 2109119BC.
As you can see in the attached images, the Xiaomi phone features a rectangular camera module in the top-right corner of the back panel with a triple camera setup and a dual-LED flash. Over on the front, it has a curved display that doesn’t appear to have a hole punch cutout for the selfie camera. But since the image is quite dark, we can’t be sure if it has an under-display camera like the Mi MIX 4 or not.
Going by the specifications, this could be Xiaomi’s first phone to feature a 4K display. According to the listing, the device will flaunt a 6.55-inch OLED display with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution. If that’s indeed the case, we could be looking at a smartphone with the classic 16:9 aspect ratio.
Display aside, you could expect a 2.4GHz octa-core chipset in the device. Moreover, the device could be available in 6, 8, 12, 16GB RAM and 64, 128, 256, 512GB storage variants. In addition, the listing reveals that you could expect this upcoming Xiaomi phone to be available in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, Purple, Black, White, and Pink color options.
In terms of optics, Xiaomi’s 4K phone could pack a primary 64MP rear camera along with two 8MP cameras. Other tidbits about the device include an in-display fingerprint scanner, 3D camera with iris recognition, 5G connectivity, a 4,400mAh battery, and Android 11.
The presence of a 2.4GHz octa-core chipset and the variety of color variants leads us to believe this could be a premium mid-range device catering to the lifestyle audience. Furthermore, it will be interesting to see if Xiaomi launches this device outside the Chinese market if it ever sees the light of day.
