Xiaomi Mi 9 is arriving in two days, but the company is so proud of its upcoming flagship, it already teased pretty much everything interesting about the smartphone. In a series of posts, it revealed colors, the specifics of the triple camera
The Xiaomi Mi 9 triple setup will have a 48 MP camera with 0.8 µm pixel size and 1/2” image sensor, effectively outputting 12 MP images. The second snapper will be 16 MP ultra-wide-angle with 117-degree FoV and f/2.2 aperture. There is also a telephoto lens with 12 MP sensor 1.0 µm pixel size and f/2.2 aperture. The whole setup, lined vertically, will be supported by Laser Autofocus that brings along PDAF and CDAF.
Instead of having regular rectangular coils for the wireless charging, we will see a circular module that will enable up to 20W charging speeds, if we can trust some hands-on and unboxed videos, leaked earlier today. While it is sitting behind the back panel, the front will come with an AMOLED panel by Samsung and Full HD+ resolution. It will have FP scanner underneath and will bring features like Reading Mode 2.0 and Sunlight Mode 2.0 to improve readability in all conditions.
This whole package will be protected by sixth-gen Gorilla Glass, with the camera setup having a sapphire glass lens over it. There are going to be three colors – Lavender Violet, Ocean Blue, and Piano Black. A fourth variant called Xiaomi Mi 9: Battle Angel, is expected to make an appearance, but it will have a transparent rear panel.
As per the other reports, Xiaomi Mi 9 is expected to come with 12 GB of RAM and Snapdragon 855 Chipset. In just 2 days, both Samsung and Xiaomi will announce smartphones with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and 12GB RAM. We’ve heard for a while now that one model of the Galaxy S10+ will have a whopping 12GB RAM, but just an hour ago, Xiaomi’s Founder Lei Jun unveiled that the highest-end model of the upcoming Mi 9 will have 12GB RAM. This special Xiaomi Mi 9 model will also have a “transparent” back (like the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition, it’ll probably show an inert PCB) and will have Alita: Battle Angel branding.
