As expected, the Xiaomi Civi 3 is now official in China and it brings the first Dimensity 8200 Ultra chipset which features the same basic specs as the regular Dimensity 8200 but with customization to the image signal processing (ISP) by Xiaomi and MediaTek.
As with past Civi model phones, Civi 3 focuses on the camera experience with dual 32MP front-facing cameras housed in a pill-shaped cutout alongside LED flashes flanking the speaker grille. The primary selfie cam features OIS and autofocus while the second module features a wider 100-degree angle and up to 4K video recording. The LED flashes on the front use AI to simulate lighting effects ranging from cold to warm to produce more realistic colors on your selfies.
