After being teased by Xiaomi for the past couple of months, the Xiaomi Civi 2 is now officially released during a launch event in China today. The smartphone sports a 6.55-inch 120Hz AMOLED display with a full HD resolution and support for Dolby Vision.
According to Xiaomi’s official Weibo page, the Civi 2 also has a pill-shaped cutout at its top middle which is reminiscent of the iPhone 14 Pro series which houses dual front-facing cameras. Both cameras are 32MP with one being an f/2.0 main camera and the other an ultra-wide camera with a 100-degree field of view.
Meanwhile at its rear, the Civi 2 sports a 50MP main + 20MP ultra-wide + 2MP macro triple-camera setup. Xiaomi also added several unique features to both the front and rear camera setups, including several portrait and VLOG modes.
Under the hood, the device features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC paired with either 8 or 12GB of RAM. There’s also a 4500mAh battery powering up the device, with support for 67W fast charging.
The device is also relatively thin and light at 7.23mm and 171.8g respectively. Besides that, the Civi 2 comes in four different colour options, namely black, blue, pink and white. Moreover, there’s also a special Hello Kitty edition.
In China, the Civi 2 is priced at CNY2399 or ~RM1546 for the 8/128GB variant, CNY2499 or ~RM1612 for the 8/256GB configuration and CNY2799 or ~RM1805 for the top-of-the-line 12/256GB model. As of the time of writing, Xiaomi has yet to reveal availability for the device outside of China, though it is likely to be renamed for the global market.
