Introducing Xiaomi Civi – Xiaomi’s new mid-range with Snapdragon 778G and 32 megapixel autofocus selfie
News unit EMGblog.com : Company Xiaomi As it was known a few days ago, on Monday, September 27, 2021 (October 5, 1400), a new phone named Civi has unveiled what will apparently be the first member of a new series of products of this company. Xiaomi Civi, which some call a rebrand of the company’s previous CC products in China, is an advanced mid-range with satisfying specifications such as a fast and modern processor, an OLED screen with a high refresh rate, and most importantly, a selfie camera equipped with autofocus, which is the first time It appears on a Xiaomi phone. This phone is also successful in terms of dimensions and weight, and in this sense, it can be called Mi 11 Lite 5G is close.
In the design Civi Various elements of the new phones of Xiaomi can be seen, which looks They have brought an advanced for this model. The edges of the screen in this model are designed in a curved way, which is usually used in less mid-range models. Selfie camera punch hole unlike Mi 11 Lite from the side The left side has been moved to the center and the triangular shape of the rear cameras is also with a larger lens at the top and two smaller lenses at the bottom for family members. Mi 11 is not unique.
The margin under the screen is much smaller in this model and with only 2.55 mm, it has reached its minimum among other Xiaomi phones.
Another interesting point about the design Civi belongs to its surrounding metal frame, which is only 1.4 mm wide.
The reason for forcing this small width should be found in the curved edges of the two sides of the phone (the screen and the back cover), which show the device’s thickness of only 6.98 inches even less than what it is.
The curvature of the edges of the screen in the width of the device was also effective and they brought it to only 71.5 mm. For comparison, it is enough to know that the Mi 11 Lite 5G with the same screen size but with flat edges and without bending has a width of 75.7 mm.
Civi has also appeared successful in terms of weight and its weight is 166 grams, despite the fact that it is still less than Mi 11 Lite 5G is heavier at 159 grams but It goes without saying that the increase of 250 mAh of battery capacity in Civi will certainly be more important than its only 7 grams of extra weight.
The coloring of Civi is also different from before and all three colors of black, blue and pink display the interesting form of the device.
6.55 inch display The OLED in the Civi is a 10-bit model with support for over 1 billion displays. It is a color that covers the DCI-P3 color range and HDR10+ content can also be displayed in it. This panel, which has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a touch sampling speed of 240 Hz, has a lot to say about color accuracy, and the JNCD indices of nearly 0.32 and DeltaE of nearly 0.36 announced for it clearly point to this issue. Among other things mentioned about this screen is its maximum point brightness of 950 nits, which has increased compared to the Mi 11 Lite 5G with a maximum point brightness of 800 nits.
Selfie camera of the device as mentioned It is considered one of the most important components of Civi and in a way its main selling point; This 32 megapixel camera has automatic focus for the first time in a Xiaomi phone, and thus on paper it is possible It will record images with higher details.
As you can expect from a mid-range phone made by Xiaomi, you won’t find an advanced camera set here either; The main camera of the device is a 64-megapixel model with a 1/1.97-inch sensor size and 0.7-micron pixels, which after combining four pixels into one pixel forms a larger 1.4-micron cell for better light absorption in 16-megapixel resolution. In front of this camera is a relatively fast f/1.79 lens, but it does not support optical image stabilization or OIS.
The second camera is an 8-megapixel ultrawide with 1.12-micron pixels equipped with a f/2.2 aperture lens and a 120-degree field of view, which is apparently Autofocus is not supported, and finally a 2-megapixel macro camera with 1.75-micron pixels and an f/2.4 lens for close-up photography completes the package.
Processor and memory
Just like a new phone Mi 11 Lite 5G NE, Xiaomi here also from advanced mid-range processor Snapdragon 778G has been used, which, despite being smaller than Snapdragon 780G present in Mi 11 Lite 5G in the position It is lower, but it can still be called a capable mid-range chipset. In the structure of this 6 nm processor of 4 cores Cortex-A78 with a maximum frequency of 2.4 GHz and 4 cores Cortex-A55 are used with a maximum clock of 1.8 GHz and its graphics is Adreno 642L. To reduce the heat produced by the processor, a 9-layer graphene cooling system is mentioned, which is considered a necessary feature for a slim phone. The RAM of the device is 8 or 12 GB, but you can add another 3 GB from the internal memory to the RAM. The internal memory of the phone is offered in two versions of 128 or 256 GB, and there is no mention of the possibility of increasing this memory with a microSD slot.
Battery and charger
Civi battery capacity as a highlight in the structure of this model is 4,500 mAh Ampere hour has been announced, which is considered a great achievement for such a thin and light device. For comparison, as mentioned before, we should go to the Mi 11 Lite 5G, which with the same screen size and thickness and weight in the same area, had a smaller battery with a capacity of 4,250mAh. Xiaomi This one charge of this battery for 1.5 days of use (under specific and defined conditions), He knows enough.
