Xiaomi Civi Won’t Launch in Global Markets, Company Reveals
Xiaomi Civi was unveiled just a few days ago, and the mid-range smartphone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC and a 120Hz OLED display. This phone is seen to be as a replacement of the CC series. Xiaomi has now confirmed that the Civi will be exclusive to Mainland China only, meaning that it won’t launch in global markets. It could be possible that the phone may arrive in other markets as a rebranded model with a different marketing name.
The company confirmed to Android Authority that Xiaomi Civi will not launch in global markets. Responding to a query, Xiaomi told the publication that “Xiaomi Civi remains a Mainland China-only device.” This doesn’t rule out the possibility of a rebadged model arriving in global markets. It remains to be seen whether Xiaomi chooses that route.
In any case, Xiaomi Civi is seen to be a CC series replacement and is priced in China starting at CNY 2,599 (roughly Rs. 29,600). It is offered in Blue, Black, and Pink colour options.
