While details about the Mi CC9 have been exposed, we still don’t know how the Meitu Custom Edition will look like. But hold your breath, Meitu lover, we don’t think it will resemble the old company’s exotic design. The Mi CC9 features a triple camera setup with AMOLED display and UD fingerprint scanner.

Meitu, not Meizu, was a company that focused on neat camera-centric phones with an unusual design. The company was acquired by Xiaomi last year, which promised to keep releasing Meitu-inspired devices. We consider this new Meitu Custom Edition as the way that Xiaomi opted for fulfilling its promise.
