Xiaomi appears to be preparing to introduce yet another phone, but this time the handset in question will be equipped with enthusiast-level specifications. A phone with the model number 2109119BC has passed through TENAA (h/t GSMArena), revealing its design and a few crucial specifications.
The display is perhaps the most exciting part. The Xiaomi phone has a 6.55-inch OLED screen, which is found on several of the company’s mid-range products. The panel, on the other hand, has a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160. This would be Xiaomi’s first smartphone with a 4K display, joining the Sony Xperia 1 III in this category.
Is this Xiaomi phone, however, a true flagship? The remaining specifications, however, are a little too hazy to corroborate this. The Xiaomi phone is powered by an octa-core processor running at 2.4GHz. This could be the Snapdragon 778G, a processor featured in a number of recent mid-range Xiaomi phones, but it’s too soon to tell. In addition, the phone has up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. In addition, a 64MP primary camera joins two 8MP rear-facing sensors.
At the back, the phone’s appearance is reminiscent of the Xiaomi 10T Pro, with a strong camera ring surrounding the primary sensor. Surprisingly, there is no visible selfie camera cut-out on the front. The phone’s casing is very thin, similar to the recently released 11 Lite NE 5G. It weighs 166 grams and measures 158mm long, 71.5mm wide, and 7mm thick. A 4,400mAh battery is also included with this body.
An “iris recognition” sensor and an under-display fingerprint sensor are further notable features. The smartphone is missing a 3.5mm headphone port as well as a microSD card slot.
What may a Xiaomi 4K smartphone be?
It’s not immediately evident where this phone falls in Xiaomi’s grading. However, considering the chipset that’s going to be featured in this phone, it’s clear that this is not a flagship phone. A 4K display is a more “Premium Feature” to have in a midrange phone.
