Xiaomi Mi 9 is obviously better than the Mi 9 SE. The AMOLED-screen of the Mi9 SE is almost the same as that of the top. With the exception of the diagonal – 5.97 against 6.39 for the older brother. Xiaomi Mi 9 uses Gorilla Glass 6 on the front, which protects the 6.39-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED panel. The Mi 9 measures at 157.5×74.7×7.6mm, and weighs 173g. With such screen, The Mi 9 has a 90.7 percent screen-to-body ratio and comes with a small waterdrop notch for the front camera. But Mi 9 SE has a smaller body thanks to the 5.97-inch AMOLED display. Mi 9 SE measures 147.5 x 70.5 x 7.5 mm. Stylish, yet tough thanks to Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 glass. We also indicate its weight of 155 grams.
The section in which there is the biggest difference between both smartphones is the processor and RAM. The Mi 9 has the configuration of 6 and 8 GB of memory while the Mi 9 SE remains in 6 GB. It is not too noticeable a difference of 6 to 8 GB, but the processor itself is a major change. And, the processor of the Xiaomi Mi 9 is the Snapdragon 855, Qualcomm’s latest generation processor that arrives ready for 5G networks and has eight cores, one of them of high performance to give a ” push ” to the heaviest applications. And The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE comes with the new Snapdragon 712, a processor created for the medium-premium range and has a design that enhances the calculations of artificial intelligence in this range (like the 855 in the high-end, of course). With these processors, the two smartphones will behave wonderfully at the user level, but it is clear that they are in two totally different steps.
Will the difference be noticed in the cameras of the Xiaomi Mi 9 and the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE? This is something to be seen, but if you look at the numbers, the differences can be very, very small, being on the side of the AI (something that depends on the processor) all the weight. At the back, Xiaomi Mi 9 features a triple camera setup, which is a first for Xiaomi. The setup comprises of a primary Sony IMX586 48-megapixel sensor, a 12-megapixel telephoto camera, and a 16-megapixel wide angle camera. The raised rear camera setup is protected by Sapphire glass, which should easily protect it against damage. A notch is available on the front top, which houses a 20-megapixel sensor. And Mi 9 SE features a triple-rear camera setup, but of course, it isn’t as impressive as the flagship Mi 9. You still get the Sony IMX586 48-megapixel sensor as the primary camera, but the other two sensors are an 8-megapixel telephoto and a 13-megapixel wide-angle and 20MP camera in front.
In the battery, there are also differences, and it seems that here we find the worst news, as we seem somewhat short of the battery of the two Smartphones, as much as they have low-power processors and AMOLED screens. The Mi 9 comes with a 3,300mAh battery, the only non-impressive part about this phone, also supports 27W fast charging. It runs Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 on top. And Because of the smaller size, the Mi 9 SE packs a slightly smaller 3,070mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. Xiaomi has also included an optical in-display fingerprint scanner that is faster and more accurate than older sensors. The Mi 9 SE also features an in-display fingerprint scanner and a tiny notch at the top.
Xiaomi has introduced the new flagship, The Xiaomi Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE, in China and not only beats with performance, but also with the price. The biggest highlight is in our eyes the new camera because we find it very welcome that Xiaomi equipped all three camera sensors with different lenses and thus covers three different focal lengths and functions: wide-angle camera, ultra wide angle, and tele camera. In addition, the new 20W wireless shop is, of course, an announcement. It is also nice to see that you are counting on new generations of Gorilla glass and the in-display fingerprint sensor.
