Xiaomi recently launched a new line-up in China dubbed the Xiaomi Mi Play. Although a part of the Mi branding, the phone closely resembles the budget-friendly Redmi series. Being a hybrid of sorts, the phone has a lot more to offer than its asking price of $159. For one, it has the all the new water drop style notch. Including this, here is everything the Xiaomi Mi Play has to offer.
Xiaomi Mi Play Overview
The Xiaomi Mi Play packs a 5.84-inches Full HD (1080 x 2280 pixels) IPS display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The infamous notch makes a return but in a new avatar! Keeping up with the trends, Xiaomi has switched over to the water drop styled notch. Love it or hate it, the notches are not going away any time soon!
And encasing the internals of the phone is a glass-on-glass design sandwiched by a metallic frame. On the topic of keeping up with the trends, here too Xiaomi has gone with a dual-tone finish glass back. Color options include Dream Blue, Twilight Gold, and plain old Black.
Under the hood, the Xiaomi Mi Play packs an octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 processor along with the PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The SoC is backed by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The memory of the phone can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB.
In the optics department, the Xiaomi Mi Play packs a dual-camera set up made by a 12MP and a 2MP sensor. The phone also comes with an 8MP front-camera for all your social media ready selfies. And sitting below the rear camera is a fingerprint scanner embedded into the phone’s back panel.
Moving on, at the software front, the Xiaomi Mi Play runs MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. And finally powering the device all up is a 3000mAh non-user removable battery. This, without a doubt, will be enough to get users through a day of usage on a single charge.
