Moreover, the company also confirmed that the Xiaomi 14 Civi will be available for purchase via Flipkart, the Xiaomi official website, and offline stores. It will be available in three shades: Cruise Blue, Matcha Green, and Shadow Black. 

Xiaomi 14 Civi price in India

Rumour mills suggest that the base 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant of the Xiaomi 14 Civi will cost around Rs 43,000. Moreover, there will likely be a 12GB RAM and 512GB storage option, but the price of that unit is still under wraps. This is significant considering Xiaomi has largely remained absent from this price segment, as the flagship Xiaomi 14 series start at Rs 69,999.

According to a promotional poster spotted outside an offline store, the Xiaomi 14 Civi will retail for around Rs 45,000. It also mentioned an instant bank discount of Rs 3,000 and an exchange bonus of Rs 3,000. Besides this, you will also have an option of Xiaomi Easy financing available for EMI with a starting monthly payment of Rs 2,389.

  • Display: The Xiaomi 14 Civi will flaunt a quad-curved 1.5K AMOLED panel that will support a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and feature Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection.

Xiaomi 14 Civi design

While the design of the Xiaomi 14 Civi will remain the same for every colourway, there will be different materials and elements for each shade.

Xiaomi 14 Civi alternatives 

If the Xiaomi 14 Civi retails at around Rs 45,000 in India, it will compete against the Nothing Phone (2), iQOO Neo 9 Pro, and OnePlus 12R available in the same price segment.

The iQOO Neo 9 Pro over a bigger 5,160mAh battery and faster 120W charging speed than the Xiaomi 14 Civi. Moreover, it also offers a 144Hz display compared to Xiaomi 14 Civi’s 120Hz panel. 

Like the iQOO Neo 9 Pro, the OnePlus 12R also offer a bigger 5,500mAh battery with a faster 100W charging speed. However, the Xiamoi 14 Civi offers better specifications than the Nothing Phone (2) and the other competitors in every other aspect.
