Xiaomi has sent out media invites for a launch event later tomorrow in China for the new Xiaomi CC9 series. We already know a few things about the device, all thanks to official teasers, and a few leaks. Ahead of its official launch, the device has appeared on the Geekbench confirming only a few specs.
The listing confirms the Xiaomi Mi CC9e moniker, and the unit tested ran Android 9 Pie, has 6GB of RAM and an eight-ocre 1.8GHz chipset. Chipset details remain unknown, though its performance score on both single and multiple core test suggests the device could come with a Snapdragon 710 or possibly a Snapdragon 632 chip under the hood.

Tomorrow’s event will be the launchpad of three new CC9 series smartphones – the Xiaomi Mi CC9, the Mi CC9e, and the Mi CC9 Meitu Custom Edition. The cc9 and CC9e are tipped to come with virtually the same specs and features, albeit a few differences.
There are speculations the Xiaomi CC9 will come flaunting a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch, an in-display fingerprint sensor which looks plausible, given that there isn’t any visible scanner on the back panel. The device will reportedly be powered by the same SoC inside the Redmi K20. This is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC coupled with 6GB/8GB and 128GB/256GB of internal storage. It is tipped to come with a 48MP main camera sensor, a 16MP secondary sensor, and third camera a 12MP sensor, while it will include a 32MP selfie shooter. The phone is said to include 4000mAh battery and run on MIUI 10 on top of Android 9 Pie.
Xiaomi CC9 Pricing
Pricing starts at 2,599 Yuan (~$378) for the 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, while the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage models could go for as much as 2,799 Yuan (~$407) and 3,099 Yuan (~$451) in that order.
The Xiaomi CC9e, on the other hand, could come as a slightly watered-down variant of the CC9. And with that in mind, the device might get a 5.97-inch AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, and a less powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Reports say it will retain the same 32MP front camera, and the triple rear camera setup, but this time with a 48MP Sony IMX582 sensor, an 8MP secondary sensor, and a third 5MP sensor,
