Xiaomi's Mobile Product Manager recently teased a new smartphone is on the way and now evidence is mounting that it might be the Xiaomi Civi 2 - a successor to Xiaomi Civi that launched exactly one year ago. Reports indicate that the Civi 2 will be ready to go live as early as this month and will sport the brand new Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset. For reference, the Civi had a Snapdragon 778G on board, so it checks out. The handset already passed China's 3C authority with model number 2209129SC.
A Chinese tipster revealed the phone will sport a 6.56-inch OLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate, up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. A 4,500mAh battery will keep the lights on with support for 67W fast charging.
The device will offer 50MP OIS-aided main camera, 8MP ultrawide camera and 2MP shooter, likely for macro photography.
