The hype is skyrocketing for the release of Xiaomi Mi MIX 4, the next flagship of the brand that should (indeed, will) debut the next one August 10th. There is no doubt: it is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2021, considering that three years have passed since its predecessor. But will we Global users see it?

However, we must not lose hope. From the words of PR Agatha Tang, we read that "currently”The smartphone will not be released in the Global version. It is possible that if the assumptions change in the coming months, Xiaomi could actually launch the smartphone also in the West.
The latest smartphone in the Mix series for the global market was the Mix 3 5G, which was announced two and a half years ago at Mobile World Congress 2019. It is possible that the fourth will eventually come. shown in flagship stores as was the case with the Mix Alpha, which never went on sale.
