The recently released flagship Mi Mix 3 got a dual camera, but the main camera of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 9 should consist of three modules. Sources from the supply chain reported that the Xiaomi Mi 9 will be released in the first half of 2019 which will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 processor, and is expected to be launched in China.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 main camera will be equipped with a 48-megapixel image sensor Sony IMX586. The amount of RAM should be 6/8 GB, although if the manufacturer follows the trend, then the high end version can get 10 GB of RAM.

Of course, it is expected to use a sub-screen fingerprint sensor, support for wireless charging technology and some kind of protection from dust and moisture.

It is worth to mention that Qualcomm is currently developing its next-generation high-end processor the Snapdragon 8150 which was previously called the Snapdragon 855.

    The Sony IMX586 sensor is currently the newest and best sensor in the market and will allow the Mi 9 to compete on a even level with the P20/Mate20 Pros, which also use a similar Bayer 4in1 40mp sensor made specifically for Huawei. The Huawei models give you a 10mp pic in night shots and the phones using the Sony sensor will give you a 12mp night shot with 1.6 μm size pixels! That gives almost DSLR quality pics in the cellphone. You cant beat that!
