Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, is working on its first flagship for the year, Xiaomi Mi 9. So far, the company has succeeded in keeping the details of this smartphone but we know that it shares the same designer as the Xiaomi Mi 6. It also comes with a Snapdragon 855 SoC, triple rear camera setup and a 27W fast charge. However, this is about all that is known for now. Today, the general manager of Xiaomi Group’s public relations department, said via Weibo: “It comes faster than you know”. The major expectation from Xiaomi right now is the Xiaomi Mi 9 thus netizens believes that the Xiaomi Mi 9 might arrive faster than we expect. Could it be at MWC 2019? that would be a wide guess.

Recently, a Xiaomi device made it through TENAA and today, another got 3C certification although it comes with a 10W fast charge which suggests that it is probably for the upcoming Redmi phone. According to the 3C certification, there are two models M1902F1T and M1903F2A but there is no telling which device they represent.
If we consider the Xiaomi Mi 8 series, Xiaomi Mi 9 may likely come in many versions. The Mi 8 has at least five models but we know that it is a special series since the company used it to celebrate its eighth anniversary. If the Mi 9 will come in different models, there are a few possibilities. It could have the Mi 9 SE which would be a low variant coupled with Xiaomi Mi 9 Exploration Edition. Both Xiaomi Mi 6 and Xiaomi Mi 8 has Exploration editions.
