It boasts a 4250mAh battery and has 33W charging speed. The mobile would work on the Android 11 OS and MIUI 12 customisation. 

In terms of the connectivity, the options you get are 4G, dual band Wi-Fi ac, USB Type-C, NFC, GPS, infrared code and it also includes two sim card slots as well. Other features of the phone include two speakers and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor. It has 2x Kryo 470 Gold CPU cores, 6x Kryo 470 Silver CPU cores, and Adreno 618 GPU. The phone will be available with 8GB of ram and 128GB internal storage.

While it might not be the best smartphone released this year, this being the newest addition to Xiaomi‘s flagship lineup, makes it a reliable option for many people who like their phone to be slim and light. At the end of the day, this smartphone seems like a good bet for the people who are looking for a slim, lightweight device at a reasonable price.
