Jun says this might be Xiaomi's last flagship below 3,000 yuan. It's the same Sony IMX586 sensor that we've seen in phones like the Honor View20. I don't know how Xiaomi does it. It's expected that Xiaomi would go for a kill by setting the price of Mi9 for less than US$500.
The Mi 9 has louder audio than the Mi 8, as well, courtesy of a larger driver and a 0.9cc sounding chamber. The design of the handset is pretty different from that now available as it sports a finish that has a holographic illusion that's protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
Just the processor isn't enough to justify buying a phone, especially as we're expecting most of the phones announced over the first half of 2019 to be running Qualcomm's latest chipset.
Like in the case of the Mi 8, there's also a transparent edition that's quite stunning. There's a protective layer of Corning's Gorilla Glass 6 on the front to minimize daily wear and tear. It has a 5.97-inch AMOLED display with dewdrop notch, created to maintain a 90.47 percent screen-to-body ratio across the board. It will feature a water drop notch on the top. It boasts an impressive 90.7 percent screen-to-body ratio and it has an in-display fingerprint scanner.
There are three important characteristics to this phone. The other three colors will come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage or 128GB of storage. However, it now supports 27W power input and 20W output which charges your Mi 9 from empty to full in just 60 minutes.
US House Democrats to file resolution on Trump's border emergency
Trump says the wall is necessary to thwart illegal migrants from entering the country and to interdict drug shipments. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., talks with reporters during her weekly news conference in Washington, D.C.
That note segues into the second characteristic. The wireless charging efficiency and stability has been raised to hit 20W at its peak.
The phone will be released in China on February 26 and pre-orders are now open. Nonetheless, no one can complain about the fast charging.
Xiaomi is all about accessories as well. Though we've yet to see them in the flesh, the press shots are stunning. The phone offers everything you would want in a flagship this year apart from a hefty price tag. You'll get the best results from the sensor using 12-megapixels with a 1.6-micron pixel size. Then there is a 16-megapixel wide-angle sensor with a 117 field-of-view and an aperture of f/2.2 as well. The company's night mode also makes an appearance here, in case you need even more help shooting at night.
In terms of software, the Mi 9 will run MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. Sadly it's too early to provide a full opinion on what it's like to use it.
The new device is called the Xiaomi Mi 9, and it has officially debuted packing a Snapdragon 855 under the hood and a 48MP rear camera with a price that is up to a third less than what you would pay for some flagship Galaxy or iPhone devices. This is Xiaomi's first time launching a product both in China and Globally at the same time, so there's a lot to look forward to.
