Lin Bin: Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is probably our last small screen flagship


Xiaomi Mi 9 SE

Today, the president of Xiaomi said that the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE may be the last small screen flagship smartphone that the company will ever make.  He added; “I don’t know if this way we can arouse the user’s desire to buy…”. Xiaomi is more interested in the acceptance of the smartphone and it appears that the Mi 9 SE has not generated as much traffic as the company expected.

Lin Bin further explained “As the smartphone industry gets advanced, flagship series requires more from display size, battery, performance, photography and other aspects. With the arrival of 5G technology, small display flagships are becoming increasingly harder to market. We invested a lot of energy and time on the Xioami Mi 9 SE to ensure that it is thin, light, beautiful and solid”. 

In fact, Xiaomi’s product director Wang Teng also sent a similar message “It is getting harder to make a small screen flagship now. The flagship smartphone has too many functions to do. The small screen phone lacks a bit of space for everything…”

It is reported that Xiaomi Mi 9 SE uses a 5.97-inch display but the actual size is as a traditional 5.1-inch mobile phone (147.5×70.5×7.45mm, 155g). This makes one-hand operation very easy. The Mi 9 SE is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It comes with a 48MP wide-angle lens + 8MP telephoto lens + 13MP super wide-angle lens. The lights are kept on by a 3070 mAh battery. In terms of price, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE (6GB+64GB version) is priced at 1999 yuan ($298), and the 6GB+128GB version is priced at 2,299 yuan ($343).

    Stupid approach

    The Mi9 SE hasn’t generated enough interest because it was built on top of the wrong chipset (SD 712).
    Instead of fitting the Snapdragon 675 (with Kryo 460 on ARM) they went for a faster modem and sacrificed on pure speed efficiency.
    Ask anyone whether they want more data and GPU speed vs more CPU speed and battery life, and 19/20 people will go for the later.
    What they have done now is make the Redmi Note 7 Pro cannibalize their Mi9 SE sales, because it’s superior in many aspects and costs 100$ less.

    It is only available in a limited list of countries and no global ROM version. As soon as there is a global.EU version I will purchase one, my pockets are not large enough to carry larger phones like the Mi 9.
