We are expecting the first set of smartphone under the Xiaomi CC series developed by Xiaomi and Meitu to debut in the coming days. So far, the rumor mill and even official teasers have kept the leaks and marketing spotlight on the standard Xiaomi CC9. But there is a lesser known/leaked model that will tag along – the Xiaomi CC9e. Although Xiaomi has yet to grace us with official renders of the lesser known Xiaomi CC9e, Mysmartprice has revealed some unverified information about the upcoming device.
According to Mysmartprice report, Xiaomi will offer the Xiaomi CC9e in four memory variants: 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, 4GB RAM + 128GB storage, 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. The report further alleged that the CC9e will come in the same White as the standard CC9, and in addition to that are the Blue Planet, and Night Price shades.
On the pricing, the CC9e is expected to start at $232/CNY 1,599, while the top end variant should sell for as much as $319/ CNY 2,199
Several renders of the Xiaomi CC9 and CC9e are currently making the rounds, though we can not decipher the which is the standard CC9 or the CC9e. Speculations are that both devices will sport a similar design adorned by a triple rear camera, which even makes differentiating both difficult.
In terms of the internals, we do know there could be some obvious differences between both devices. First, the Xiaomi CC9e is rumored to come fitted with a 5.97-inch AMOLED display panel with 1080 x 2340 pixels Full HD+ resolution, and powered by the Snapdragon 710 chipset, while the CC9 will get a newer Snapdragon 730 chip.
Speaking of the cameras, a recent official teaser suggests the Xiaomi CC9 will come fitted with a 32MP selfie cam as well as a triple cam setup on the flipside. The entire rear camera details are scarce, though official teaser suggests a 48MP camera will be the highlight, while rumors point to additional 8MP and 5MP sensors.
Xiaomi isn’t known for keeping specs details in secrets, so we would surely get more teasers in the days leading to July 2.
