Xiaomi and it spin-off brand Redmi have been on a launch spree since the turn of the year. It all started with the Redmi Note 7, then the Mi 9 series, the Redmi Go, Redmi 7, and the latest flagship K20 Pro.
Our Friends over there in India are preparing to receive the Redmi K20 series in the coming days, while the domestic is been spoilt with choices. Xiaomi today ignited the launch momentum with the unveiling of the Xiaomi MiCC series. It is a new mid-range camera-centric series for young users. And the Xiaomi Mi CC9 and the CC9e are the first under the lineup.
While the Xiaomi Mi CC9 and the CC9e are both capable camera-centric phones, they, in fact, weren’t the only devices that debuted today. Though not given the due attention it deserves, there is a special Meitu edition of the CC9. The device is built around a special imaging tech from smartphone maker Meitu team, which Xiaomi acquired in late 2018. The device is a slightly modified version of the CC9 with the same build and virtually same internals. There is a catch, however, the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu Edition is a more capable one than the standard CC9, at least in the camera unit.
The device is targeted at vloggers with AI low light portrait mode, movie portrait, and full body beauty filters. It takes better selfies and portraits as well as blur-free videos. What is more, the device has a separate camera app designed by Meitu as well as a customized version of MIUI with Meitu apps and special themes.
Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu Edition Pricing and availability
The Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu Edition is available only in a special white pearl colorway with 256GB of storage. It is priced at CNY 2,599 ($378) and should be available alongside the standard CC9/e. Alongside the device, Xiaomi is offering a bracelet case for CNY 199 (~$30 ) and a clip-on LED soft light for CNY 49 (~$7 ).
