Mi Mix 4 is also the first phone to be powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 888 Plus chipset. It is a direct successor to the Mi Mix 3 5G, which was announced back in February 2019.
Xiaomi's latest Android flagship comes with a 6.67-inch curved AMOLED display featuring FHD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and Gorilla Glass Victus protection.
