With the iPhone 14 Pro, Apple has introduced a completely new design on the front. Instead of a notch in the display, there are now two holes that combine into a pill design. That’s exactly what Xiaomi has now taken over – but without the advantages of the new iPhone.


Xiaomi Civi 2 with pill design is coming soon

Xiaomi has been inspired by Apple for years. This is particularly noticeable in the software, but also in the hardware from time to time. With the Civi 2, a new cell phone will soon be presented, which takes over the pill-shaped cutout of the iPhone 14 Pro. While Apple has 3D sensors in it, you only get two front cameras with a resolution of 32 MP from Xiaomi. In addition, there will probably be no “Dynamic Island” function. The first Xiaomi fans are already working on a solution. There is also a free Android app. This is what the Xiaomi Civi 2 will look like:

Instead of a small hole for a camera like in the Xiaomi 12 Pro (see title picture), a dual camera is used that creates a pill-shaped hole. This is very reminiscent of the iPhone 14 Pro, although the Xiaomi’s solution is a bit smaller, because there isn’t that much technology installed there. The back then looks much more independent. Here Xiaomi relies on a mixture of different materials and shapes.

What else can the Xiaomi Civi 2 do?

Otherwise, the Xiaomi Civi 2 is a solid mid-range phone with a 50 MP main camera, a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 processor and a 120 Hz display. The exact specifications are not yet fully known. The final performance will take place on September 27th. Then we also find out whether the design of the front has an influence on the software and how big the battery is. Whether the mobile phone will find its way to Europe is not yet known.
