According to leaker @korean_riceball the move will counter falling demand for handsets – particularly premium phones which cost too much to be viable for an annual upgrade.
According to @korean_riceball, Xiaomi’s mid-range smartphones will feature 200MP cameras, along with larger sensor sizes to mitigate the diminishing returns of using high-megapixel-count hardware with smaller sensors.
The main camera will have another large sensor that supports 4x optical zoom which is better than the iPhone 14 Pro Max which costs $1,099 but is limited to 3x optical zoom.
Xiaomi also aims to improve battery capacities, using 5,000mAh cells that support 120W of fast charging.
The post claims that these future mid-range handsets will also ship with a ‘unique curved screen design’ that produces ‘sharp and vibrant’ visuals.
