Xiaomi recently released the Mi Mix Alpha and that may have led some to believe that the Mix 4 was dead in the water. Apparently not, if new rumors are anything to go by. The Mix 4 is touted to be on the way, and it could come with the same 108 MP sensor we saw on the Alpha.

Xiaomi unveiled its most ambitious device yet, the Mi Mix Alpha, last week. Before the launch of the Alpha, we were led to believe that the company would be unveiling the Mi Mix 4 at the launch event but that turned out to be wrong. Apparently, though, the Mix 4 is still on the cards and could be coming soon.

While the Mix Alpha packs some of the most impressive hardware we've ever seen, its hefty US$2800 price tag makes it something of a fantasy device to most. The Mix 4, however, would be the attainable device, since it's unlikely to retail for more than US$600, if past Xiaomi releases are any indication.

There's not much to go by but this Mix 4 rumor was introduced by popular leakster Ice Universe, so there may be legs to it. The leakster also hinted that the device could feature the same 108 MP sensor that debuted on the Mix Alpha. That sensor is Samsung's ISOCELL Bright HMX, and is, by far, the most powerful sensor we've seen on a smartphone in recent times.

Other details of the purported Mix 4 remain veiled but we expect more leaks to surface over the next few weeks. The Mi Mix 3 was unveiled in October and went on sale in November, so we may be looking at a November release for the Mix 4.
