Hello Mi Fan's!!!
Last year, we broke the news that Xiaomi is working on at least four smartphones with the then-newly launched 108MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor. Now, Xiaomi is working on at least two new smartphones within a product series — one with a 64MP primary camera, and the other with a 108MP primary camera.
At this time, the names of these smartphones were not available — consequently, we also took an educated guess that none of those phones would be the Mi Mix 4 — and so far, this has held to be true, too.
Xiaomi Gauguin (64MP) and Xiaomi Gauguin Pro (108MP)
XDA Member who is our frequent and trusted Xiaomi tipster, and XDA Senior Member Deic have found multiple evidence within MIUI 12 of the existence of two upcoming smartphones from Xiaomi.
The phones come under the “Gauguin” codename family, which indicates that they can be released under a singular marketing name (though this can change according to product strategy and placement across different regions).
One of the highlights of the devices will be their rear quad-camera setups. The standard “Gauguin” smartphone will have a 64MP primary camera, while the higher variant “Gauguin Pro” smartphone will have a 108MP primary camera.
Further, there are three regions marked for the gauguin family of smartphones:
China, India, and Global — indicating that the phones will make their way to India and will be available in other international markets as well. The model number for gauguin is expected to end in J17, while gauguinpro will adopt a model number ending in J17Pro.
Also, both the smartphones are expected to come with a Qualcomm SoC, unlike the recently uncovered Redmi K30 Ultra that is likely to come with a MediaTek SoC.
However, We do not have any further information on the broader specifications of these devices, other than their camera setup. It also remains to be seen which exact sensors are adopted on the smartphone — whether these will be the same sensors as we have seen in the current generation, or if they will be newer, upgraded sensors.
