After all the teasers, Xiaomi has finally unveiled its latest smartphone, called “CIVI”. Actually, it’s a new smartphone series of the same name so we expect other phones to join the lineup shortly as well. Here, we will be discussing in detail the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Xiaomi CIVI in Nepal.

Xiaomi CIVI Overview:

The Xiaomi CIVI is a follow-up to the Mi CC series that came out in 2019. That being said, the company has done more than a simple name change. While the CIVI has modest camera specs like the Mi CC9, it places a higher priority on the design as well.

Design and Display

Xiaomi CIVI sports a 6.55-inch curved OLED display. It’s a 10-bit panel with DCI-P3 colors, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. The phone supports a couple of HDR formats including HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, and it can reach the peak brightness of up to 950 nits.

The phone has a left-aligned rectangular camera bump that distinguishes it from the Mi 11 lineup. Its frosted AG glass back is available in three color options – Blue, Pink, and Black.

Over on the back, Xiaomi CIVI flaunts a triple camera setup at the back. It consists of a 64MP primary, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro camera. Upfront there is a 32MP selfie shooter with Autofocus.
