A week after the rumours began circulating, Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Mi 9. With the unveiling comes confirmation of its specs as well as its price, even if only for the Chinese market.
To start, the Xiaomi Mi 9 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, as previously revealed. Additional details about the phone include the new three cameras around the back. But now we also have the breakdown of the three-camera main shooter.
First and foremost s the 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor. The second is a 16MP ultra-wide lens with a 117-degree field of view, followed by a 12MP sensor equipped with 2x telephoto zoom. On the front, we have the 20MP front-facing camera sitting in a teardrop-shaped notch.
Now that we’re at the front, there’s the 6.39-inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ display. Over it is a piece of Corning Gorilla Glass 6, which also protects the in-display fingerprint reader.
Lastly, the Xiaomi Mi 9 also supports fast charging. Called Charge Turbo, Xiaomi made it so that the Mi 9 is compatible with chargers that can output up to 27W. On the wireless front, the Mi 9 can also be charged wirelessly with a 20W charger, which is pretty fast by wireless charging standards. The battery in the Mi 9 itself is rated at 33oo mAh.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 comes in three RAM and storage configurations. One comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is priced at RMB2999 (~RM1815). The second variant comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, at a RMB3299 (~RM1997). The final configuration comes with its own special transparent back and Alita: Battle Angel-related branding. This model’s got 12GB RAM, 256 GB of storage, and a RMB3999 (~RM2421) pricetag,
The highest tier model aside, the Mi 9 has got three colour options – Lavender Violet, Ocean Blue and Piano Black. As of yet, Xiaomi has not announced if or when the Mi 9 – along with the variants – will be coming to our shores.
