It will be on September 27 Xiaomi Civi 2 its Chinese premiere, the manufacturer has already shared a couple of photos of the phone’s exterior, and also dropped the information that there will be a 50-megapixel main camera on the back and two 32-megapixel cameras on the front. The latter need space, so the wide and ultra-wide selfie cameras are placed in an elongated, pill-shaped cutout, which is somewhat similar to the iPhone 14 Pro. It is not yet known whether there is a software extra for the Civi’s strange camera cutout. There have been similar solutions in the Android world before — Samsung Galaxy S10+, Huawei P40 Pro, Honor Magic4 Pro, OnePlus Nord, just to name a few — but none of the manufacturers has so far ventured to leave the cameras in the middle, they all pushed them to one of the edges Who.

Back to the hardware of the Civi 2: there will be three cameras on the back, of which the wide-angle main camera will use a Sony IMX766 sensor, which is the same 50-megapixel unit that works in the Xiaomi 12. The Civi 2, on the other hand, hides the sensor behind an f/1.8 aperture, while Xiaomi works with 12 f/1.9 lenses. One of the shared photos also shows that the phone has Dolby Atmos support, and for now it is only a rumor that Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC will be working under the roof.
