In August, Xiaomi is expected to present its very first smartphone with an invisible front camera.
After the borders, the notch, the drop of water then the punch, smartphones are now preparing to take a new step: that of erasing all visible traces of the front camera. We have already had a first glimpse of this with the ZTE Axon 20 5G, the world’s first smartphone to have an invisible camera. However, if this smartphone does include a camera hidden under its screen, it is still slightly visible.
The promise of a truly invisible camera could soon find its salvation in a certain Xiaomi. As the Ice Universe leaker indicates, the future Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 should indeed be entitled to a front camera invisible to the naked eye. He took the opportunity to share some new renderings that precisely highlight this characteristic.

In addition to this invisible camera – which would already be a feat in itself – the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 would have immense arguments to make. According to the latest rumors about it, it would ship an AMOLED FHD + screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a Snapdragon 888 Plus, Qualcomm’s latest premium chip, and an imposing 5,000 mAh battery capable of being recharged at… 120W . In short, a real concentrate of technologies.
Unfortunately, the smartphone would only be launched on the Chinese market, according to MyDrivers, which even gives us a price: 5,999 yuan (around € 780). The presentation of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is expected during the month of August.
