The Mi 8 allowed Xiaomi to make an impression last year. The Beijing company must capitalize on this success by offering a new smartphone even more powerful this year. This successor is the Mi 9, whose official presentation is scheduled for this month of February.
Yesterday, Xiaomi product director Wang Teng confirmed through the Weibo social network that the Xiaomi Mi 9 will be designed by the same designer of Mi 6, Mi Liu. To recap, the Mi 6 uses a curved or ceramic glass as the main material of the fuselage.
In addition, we know more about the features of this next premium smartphone. This thanks to a shared photo on the site Gizmochina.
The image shows a smartphone with a screen that covers almost the entire front. It would be a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel according to the information already available. Note also the drawing of a fingerprint on the lower part of the device. This suggests that the Xiaomi Mi 9 would include a fingerprint sensor directly integrated into the screen.
On the other hand, the picture shows the design of the back of the phone. We note indeed a rear camera with three sensors in a vertical position. Note that the triple sensor is not grouped into a single module. The camera actually splits into two parts: a dual camera and a photosensor just below.
Meanwhile, the latest news that Mi 9 will have three cameras is based on a response to the video posted on the Weibo social network Zou Longjun. There are cups of rice wine and one of the users asked how to set the camera to achieve such sharpness.
The author, who is the engineer working for Xiaomi, replied that it was necessary to take three shots. Of course, we can interpret it so that the phone can be equipped with three cameras. Soon after the publication, this comment disappeared, indicating that it was non-public information.
In addition, the Xiaomi Mi 9 should ship the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor as well as a 27W fast charge. The use of this chip is not trivial. This could indeed ensure that the smartphone has support for the 5th generation mobile network. Also, the successor of Mi 8 would have 4GB to 6GB of RAM.
The World Mobile Congress will open on February 25 in Barcelona. It seems that Xiaomi does not want to take advantage of the event to officially unveil its new smartphone. No doubt to avoid being in the shadow of Huawei. Like Samsung, the Beijing manufacturer will hold its own conference to introduce its new device.
