Xiaomi has recently filed for registration of a new device called the Xiaomi Civi 3, which is expected to hit the market soon. According to DCS, the latest update in the MIIT registration information shows that the device will come with 12 gigs of memory and 512 GB of storage, offering users more storage space and improved performance. Recent internal builds of Xiaomi’s MIUI operating system for the Xiaomi Civi 3 suggest that the device is on track for a release by the end of this month. The build number, 188.8.131.52.TMICNXM, points to a launch date of May 30. The Xiaomi Civi 3 is expected to be initially available in the Chinese market, but it remains to be seen when it will be released in other regions.
Coming to its specs, the Xiaomi Civi 3 boasts significant improvements in performance over its predecessors. It features the Dimensity 8200 processor, which outperforms the Snapdragon 778G Plus and Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 processors. While the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 processor still performs better than the Dimensity 8200 overall, the latter processor is still more than capable of handling heavy gaming and all other usage scenarios.
The Xiaomi Civi 3 is also mainly targeted towards the female segment, with its lightweight, trendy design, and impressive front camera capabilities. The device boasts a 32 MP dual front camera with a front-firing LED flash, ensuring high-quality selfies in any lighting condition. Similar to its predecessor, the device features a “pill-shaped” hole-punch design, which remains one of its most prominent features.
The upcoming Civi 3 also comes with an interesting feature – 5G cross-carrier roaming. With this feature, users can access another carrier’s 5G network via cross-carrier roaming when they are in an area without 5G network coverage. This feature will reduce the number of signal blind spots and allow users to legally access the 5G network, regardless of their carrier’s SIM card.
The Xiaomi Civi 3 has recently passed China’s 3C certification, indicating that the device may be equipped with an FHD+ 120Hz OLED screen and a Sony IMX8-series camera with OIS support on the rear. Additionally, the smartphone is rumored to support 67W fast charging. Despite these details being publicized, there is little information available about other features of the device. It is believed that the Civi 3 will remain limited to the Chinese market.
