Xiaomi Civi4 Pro: Why the $75 Hike?

Refreshing the Xiaomi Civi4 Pro Series for Female Users

It has been almost a year since the release of the previous Xiaomi Civi series model, targeting female users who prioritize smartphone design. Surprisingly, the new Xiaomi Civi4 Pro breaks away from the conventional numerical naming convention and embraces a more direct naming approach.

Elevated Design in Pro Version

When it comes to consumer decisions, aesthetics play a crucial role, especially for female users. The latest Xiaomi Civi4 Pro retains the dual-curved design but introduces a trendy straight-line metal frame instead of the previous generation. Interestingly, the device is now thinner at 7.45mm and weighs only 179.3g.

The front features a 6.55-inch slightly curved screen, minimizing accidental touches on the edges. This display utilizes Xiaomi’s C8 optical material, supporting up to 1.5K resolution, 3000nit peak brightness, DC+2160Hz PWM dual dimming technology, and is certified by TÜV for low blue light emission, flicker-free performance, and eye comfort.

Improved Performance in Pro Version

While performance might not be a top concern for female users in terms of technical specifications, Xiaomi understands the importance of a smooth experience. The Xiaomi Civi4 Pro, labeled “Pro” for a reason, features the Snapdragon 8s Gen3 processor, a collaboration between Xiaomi and Qualcomm, offering significant performance upgrades akin to a youth flagship version. Paired with LPDDR5X+UFS4.0 memory, the device includes a 4184mm² ring-shaped liquid cooling system to ensure stable performance during intensive tasks like gaming.

With these substantial upgrades across design, imaging, and performance, the Xiaomi Civi4 Pro’s pricing sees an increase of approximately 500 yuan compared to its predecessor. The base 12GB+256GB variant starts at 2999 yuan, while the higher configurations of 12GB+512GB and 16GB+512GB are priced at 3299 yuan and 3599 yuan, respectively.
