Xiaomi CEO and founder Lei Jun is set to give his annual speech August 10, a day before the Samsung event and two days prior to Honor’s. And it’s something to watch for.

(Update, August 10: The Xiaomi MIX 4 has been launched! It’s the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus phone. It’s the first Xiaomi to get a camera under the display. And more. Look!)

(Update, August 4: It’s official! The Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is going to be launched August 10 indeed.)

The company’s head has revealed on Weibo that new products will be launched after the speech. He didn’t clarify if the unveiling will be done on the same day or share what the products will be. However, every industry insider we follow on China’s social media platform are one in saying that we should expect to see the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 and Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 on that day.

Our eyes are on the former, though. It’s been almost three years since we last saw a MIX device, after all. The MIX Alpha is not counted, because that was not commercially released.

Will the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 actually be released in the Philippines?

Coincidentally, an image of what is said to be an actual Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 unit, shot at a factory, has surfaced — and in the process somehow confirm that the upcoming MIX model is the first Xiaomi smartphone to have an under-screen camera. The fingerprint and light sensors are placed underneath the display as well. We hope the in-screen-camera implementation here is different from that on the ZTE Axon 20.

The Mi MIX 4 is reportedly packing the following, too: a 6.67-inch Full HD+ curved OLED display with a high refresh rate, a 50-megapixel triple rear camera, a 5,000mAh battery that supports 120-watt wired and 70- or 80-watt wireless fast charging, and MIUI 12.5 based on Android 11. It’s said to use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus processor paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Price is pegged at around ¥6,000 (roughly P46,108 or $928). However, it’s not clear if that’s for the version with 8GB or 12GB of RAM.
