It looks like 2019 will be the year the dual rear camera becomes passé. According to GF Securities, Xiaomi’s market performance report hints that the Mi 9 will be the first smartphone from the Chinese company to feature three cameras on the back of the phone. Additionally, the Mi Mix 4 might have a periscope lens, which allows for optical zoom without taking up more space on the phone’s body.
Both the Mi 9 and the Mi Mix 4 are touted to be Xiaomi’s flagship devices for 2019. They will reportedly have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. The Mi 9’s 5G-enabled model is still expected to be the first 5G phone from Xiaomi; now, rumour has it that the Mi Mix 4 could also be 5G-enabled.
Some rumours even suggest that the Mi Mix could have a foldable display, though these are still just that- rumours. Meanwhile, the company is gearing up for the launch of the 5G version of the Mi Mix 3 in European market, set for sometime in 2019. One thing is not rumour- 2019 looks to be quite the action-packed year for Xiaomi.
