Xiaomi’s mainstream flagship, the Mi 9, is selling like hotcakes inside and outside of China. And that’s pretty easy to understand – We’re talking about a flagship-packed smartphone with a neat design, with a gorgeous teardrop-notch display. Tomorrow those residing in the UK will be able to purchase this wonderful piece of technology.
The handset was already released in other European countries such as Spain, and Italy, so it is coming a bit late for the UK customers. Starting tomorrow, buyers will be able to get it via Vodafone, or through Xiaomi’s online Mi.com store, and of course at the offline Mi Store that is located in London. If you’ve been living in a cave during the first months of 2019, we’re are here to refresh your memory about the Mi 9. The handset is packed with a Snapdragon 855 and paired with 8GB of RAM, the handset is available in storage variants with 64GB or 128GB.
Furthermore, the Mi 9 features a gorgeous AMOLED display with 6.39-inch with 1080 x 2340 pixels of resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 6 coating. The handset features a small and elegant teardrop notch at the top the serves as a house for the 20MP selfie camera. On the back the handset counts with a triple-camera setup that is composed of a 48 MP, f/1.8, wide +16 MP, f/2.2, ultrawide + 12 MP, f/2.2, telephoto sensor. It features Laser/PDAF and 2x Optical Zoom. It is fueled by a 3,300mAh battery that can be charged via 27W fast-charging.
The device will be available in both storage variants, but unfortunately, users will only be able to purchase the Black colored variant, something that may be a downside, one time that the Mi 9 has some nice color flavors like the Pink-Lavender or the standard Blue unit. The 64GB variant will sell for £499 ($644) while the 128GB will cost £549 ($708).
