Xiaomi took to its Weibo handle to confirm that it will be announcing a new phone named Xiaomi Civi at 2 PM (local time) on Sept. 27 in China. Back in 2019, Xiaomi had launched the CC9 series of smartphones in China. It did not launch successor models last year. It is now being speculated that Xiaomi may have replaced the CC9 series with the all-new Civi lineup.
Xiaomi is yet to share the details of the first Xiaomi Civi smartphone. It could be a female-oriented phone with good design and top-notch photography capabilities. A couple of weeks back, a handset with 2107119DC was approved by Chinese certification platforms such as TENAA and 3C. Probably, this handset may end up as the first Civi phone.
The Xiaomi 2107119DC smartphone has a 6.55-inch FHD+ OLED display with a punch-hole design. It has an under-display fingerprint scanner. It has a front camera of 20-megapixel and a 64-megapixel triple camera unit on the back.
It is powered 2.4GHz octa-core processor and 6 GB / 8 GB / 12 GB of RAM. The handset may come in storage choices like 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB. It is preinstalled with Android 11 OS. The handset is packed with a 4,150mAh rated battery, which seemingly supports 33W fast charging.
The specifications of the 2017119DC suggest that it could be rebranded version of the Snapdragon 778G SoC powered Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G that debuted in international markets recently. However, one noticeable difference between the two devices is that the 11 Lite NE 5G has a side-facing fingerprint scanner, whereas the 2017119DC has an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
