Xiaomi has just made two big announcements this week. One of them is regarding the new CC9 series that will launch soon in China. This will be the first phone born out of the Xiaomi-Meitu collaboration. Now, while Xiaomi did announce the new series, the new phones (two, to be exact) will be made official at a later date which is as yet undeclared. In the meanwhile, a render of the Xiaomi CC9 has leaked on Weibo, a render that puts it in stark contrast to the one leaked before the official announcement.
As per the new leaked render which almost looks official, Xiaomi will be going for a more contemporary design seen on most high-end phones. This looks quite the opposite of what Xiaomi envisions for the new series – colourful and creative.
However, this is most likely the design as two CC9 models also appeared on TENAA with a similar design. Also, it is designed with female user in mind, hence it has to be something that has flashy non-mainstream colours. For now, this is the only render and there’s yet to be an official launch date for the series. We suggest these renders be taken with a pinch of salt as there’s contradictory information doing the rounds regarding the design of the series. We expect more information regarding the series to trickle down in the next few weeks.
