Xiaomi Civi 4 Pro Overview

Design and Display

The Xiaomi Civi 4 Pro smartphone comes in a dirt-resistant leather back and features a metal frame in between the slightly curved front glass and the back. It has a left-aligned circular camera module that houses mouth-watering lenses from Leica that we will get into a little later.

This phone ships in seven different finishes altogether three of which are limited edition. All the options except for the black one come in a dual-tone finish. On the other hand, the green variant has reflective patterns while the limited edition takes it up a notch by going with a black and contrasting vibrant color combination.

Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 and…

The Xiaomi Civi 4 Pro comes with the newly unveiled Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 under its hood. Matter of fact, it is the first phone to launch with this chipset just three days after it was announced. What’s so special about this processor, you ask? Well, to keep it short — it comes in a similar architecture to the flagship 8 Gen 3 with a prime Cortex-X4 core and outdoes last’s year top chip i.e. Snapdragon 8 Gen 2!

Underneath, the phone includes a 50MP OmniVision Light Fusion 800 sensor. This combination makes the Xiaomi Civi 4 Pro one of the most powerful photography phones in the market.

Xiaomi Civi 4 Pro Price in Nepal and Availability 

The Xiaomi Civi 4 Pro has officially been announced on 21 March 2023. Since it’s a “Civi” phone, we did not expect it to debut globally. However, the word is that it will launch in India as well this time around.

But, as it stands, it is available in China only and starts at CNY 2,999. It goes all the way up to CNY 3,599. The price depends on the configuration, hence, the limited edition also goes for the same price. Based on that, if this phone ever makes its way here, we expect the Xiaomi Civi 4 Pro to start at NPR 65,999.
