Photo Announcement. Xiaomi Civi 2 - a handsome smartphone with a double front camera

Xiaomi continues to develop the Civi series of its smartphones. And, it seems, even found a certain rhythm. Apparatus leaving every six months. Meet Xiaomi Civi 2!

(The number is second, but the smartphone itself is already the third. Before him was the founder of the Xiaomi Civi series and his successor Civi 1S).

Like its predecessors, the Xiaomi Civi 2 is more about design than power and bells and whistles. Although you look at the characteristics like this - but nothing, they inspire respect.

Particular attention was paid to the front cameras. There are two of them, both - 32 megapixels each. first1st - with autofocus, the second - wide-angle. There is a flash. And not even one. Well, the design of the cameras. Does this oblong centered cutout remind you of anything?

The rear camera is triple, 50 + 20 + 2 MP. The main sensor is a serious and rather large Sony IMX766. But here optical stabilization, unfortunately, was greedy. Additional cameras - wide-angle and macro.

The chipset is fresh Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. Civi 2 is only the second smartphone on this chip. Moreover, the first one was also a native Chinese, so performance statisticsI have a little so far. Yes, and that had to be sought with dogs. The power is decent, "pre-flagship". In AnTuTu, I predict around 550 thousand points.

Memory. 8 or 12 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. There is no support for memory cards.

The screen (if you forget about the exotic cutout) is very similar to those of its predecessors. 6.55" (104 cm²) AMOLED panel. Standard resolution 1080x2400 (402 ppi). High refresh rate up to 120 Hz.

The battery capacity has also not changed, still the same 4500 mAh. The charging speed has grown from 55 to 67 W - nice�, but not essential.

There is an NFC module and support for 5G networks, there is no standard audio output. The fingerprint scanner is hidden under the screen.

Prices are more than humane. ¥2399 (₽19400, $335), ¥2499 (₽20200, $349) and ¥2799 (₽22600, $390) for 8+128, 8+256 and 12+256 GB respectively.
