Xiaomi Mi 9 has been one of the most successful devices launched by the Chinese brand this year. However, the Asian giant has decided that it is the time to give something more to its users. And that is why it will launch a version of the Mi 9 with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. And if you want to know more about this new launch of Xiaomi, do not miss this article.
Xiaomi launches a Mi 9 with more storage capacity
In February of this year, Xiaomi launched its Mi 9 in China in two versions: one with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage and another of 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. But apparently, 128 GB storage has not been enough for some of the brand’s fans. Therefore, the Chinese manufacturer will launch, this August 14, a new variant of this smartphone with 8 GB of RAM and larger storage of 256 GB.
The launch will initially take place in China for a price of 3,299 yuan, which would amount to about $465. In addition, the brand has announced that the first buyers of this new version of the Xiaomi Mi 9 will take a 27W Qi portable charger.
