In this post, we will dig into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of Xiaomi CIVI in Nepal.

Xiaomi CIVI Overview

The device has frosted AG glass at the rear panel which is further distinguished in three different color variations – Black, Blue, and Pink. There is a left-aligned rectangular bump that holds the whole camera setup.

Performance and Memory

The device gets its power from Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G based on a 6nm manufacturing process. It integrates an octa-core CPU with Kryo 670 cores clocked at the speed of 2.4GHz and 1.8GHz for four cores each. Similarly, the graphics are handled by Adreno 642L processor.

As per memory, there are three configurations – 8/128GB, 8/256GB, and 12/256GB. Unfortunately, you can no longer expand the internal storage via a microSD card or anything else.


Under the hood, there is a triple camera setup inside the rectangular module of the Xiaomi CIVI. It has a 64MP primary sensor of f/1.8 aperture and 0.7 microns pixel capacity. Accompanying it is an 8MP ultrawide lens of a 120-degree field of view and a 2MP camera for macro shots. The module also houses a LED flash.

Upfront, there is a 32MP selfie snapper with AF features. The rear panel can shoot 4K videos at 30 frames per second with gyro-EIS while the front can only shoot 1080p videos at the same rate.
