Xiaomi Mi 9 flagship launched in China

Xiaomi Mi 9 flagship launched in China

That triple camera combination comes with AI features, including some distortion correction magic for faces in superwide shots. The device's fully curved back is worth noting, making it look more like a OnePlus device.

Unsurprisingly, while the smaller notch is more aesthetically pleasing, it does mean Xiaomi has been forced to remove the 3D facial recognition found on the Mi 8 and Mi 8 Pro due to a lack of room. This device also uses an in-display fingerprint sensor for authentication. Much like the LG V40 and Huawei Mate 20 series, Xiaomi has fortunately opted for a versatile normal/ultra wide/telephoto trio (no depth sensor here).

Need something a little cheaper than the standard Mi 9? And if you just wanna charge the device traditionally with a cable, you can charge it up to 100% in just over one hour. Alongside these phones, Xiaomi has also announced the launch of a wireless power bank which would pack 10,000 mAh and would retail for 149 CNY.

The Mi 9 ships with a 3300mAh battery which seems rather tiny but it has fast wireless charging upto 20W and a bundled 27W wall charger.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 has been the subject of official teasers for the past few weeks but today the highly-anticipated flagship has finally been revealed in its entirety alongside a special Transparent Edition model. It has a slightly different camera with an extra lens for a total of seven and a faster f/1.47 aperture. Plus, its highest variant features a massive RAM of 12GB.

Along with the powerful Snapdragon 855 octa-core SoC, the Mi 9 also gets a considerable performance boost from the Adreno 640 GPU, which is compatible with the Game Turbo feature that overclocks the entire configuration to deliver increased performance in games and demanding apps. This is coupled with 64GB or 128GB of internal storage depending on the buyer's preference. Last time when Xiaomi launched the Mi 8, it saw astounding success in the markets where the brand launched it. The company also claims that the phone gets 90.7% screen-to-body ratio, which is possible because of the smaller waterdrop notch. Some additional features of the Mi 9 include the IR blaster and the support for a dark mode. And, yes, it does come with a 20-megapixel selfie camera, as well. For security purposes, the phone comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor. As mentioned before, the phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and is accompanied by up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal memory, but the latter will be found in the transparent version of the Mi 9.
