The Mi Mix 4 is Xiaomi's inaugural under-display camera flagship smartphone. This is an impressive breakthrough with which to launch; however, the device's all-new spec does come with the compromise of an FHD+ resolution. However, the latest rumors suggest that the OEM is already prepared to step up to 2K in its immediate successor.

It may be a bit early to speculate on this topic; nevertheless, it now looks like a successor to Xiaomi's wildly popular Mi Mix 4 could get the more streamlined moniker of Mix 5 in 2022. Presuming this device will uphold its series' reputation for cutting-edge features, it might also be reasonable to project it would come with the second generation of its maker's Camera Under Panel technology.

This Xiaomi version of the under-display selfie camera is finally here after what the OEM characterizes as 5 years of research and development. However, the probable wave of the future in terms of display tech it represents does come with the caveat that the Mi Mix 4 has an FHD+ display.

Therefore, some Xiaomi fans may encounter a dilemma: get that flagship for its cutting-edge display, or go with the Mi 11 Ultra for the best overall visual quality available? According to a new MyDrivers article, this struggle might get less real thanks to ongoing work on CUP tech. 

Apparently, this may result in a working, market-ready version with a higher resolution, perhaps even 1440p, to be released as soon as 2022. On the other hand, this new leak appears to be mainly based on a Weibo post from the eminent tipster Digital Chat Station, which merely states that upcoming "customized high-resolution" displays would be "interesting" in terms of "pixel ratio".

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite is available on Amazon
