Seems we know everything about the forthcoming Xiaomi Mi 9 and we are waiting for the launch conference that should take place on February 20 just to confirm what we know. This handset has been spotted in multiple spy photos. So we were aware of its look and design elements as well. But today, the Mi 9 was shown in a video, which allows us to look at this beauty from all sides.
Well, the Xiaomi Mi 9 is going to be the most beautiful Mi-line smartphone. But it doesn’t mean Xiaomi has focused on the appearance only. As you should know, it will be the world’s first smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 855 flagship chip. Also, it’s said, within two months, no other smartphone manufacturer will bring its SND855-powered model to the market. Thus, the company will get the empty room and, what’s more important, a good chance to tear itself away from the rivals.
Gizchina News of the week
We have already seen the leaked scores of the Xiaomi Mi 9 in AnTuTu as well as in Master Lu. Both benchmarks prove it is going to be a real beast. But this phone could reach 387,851 and 409,889 in AnTuTu and Master Lu, respectively, no accidentally. The Snapdragon 855 not only uses the latest 7nm process node but also the CPU has a ‘super-big core’ with a frequency of 2.84GHz, and its single-core performance is improved by 45%.
The rest of the features include the Samsung AMOLED full-screen with a drop screen design, a built-in screen fingerprint recognition, a 3500mAh battery supporting 27W fast charging option, a triple-camera using a 48MP sensor, a quite powerful selfie camera, Android 9.0 out of the box, and many more. But as Xiaomi has added the newest flagship processor and the Sony CMOS, it will cost more. It’s rumored the low variant of the original model will cost 3499 yuan ($517), while the starting price of the Explorer Edition will be 4999 yuan ($739).
