100% of them inherit the Meitu camera algorithm, Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version of the fall, is the veritable first son after the marriage, then the overall picture, especially the camera effect can make Xiaomi mobile phone in front of the little fairy, cute girl Turn around?

A few days ago, we have got the customized version of Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu, and then we have a comprehensive understanding of it through our experience evaluation.

Design & Appearance

Seeing the outer packaging of Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu customized version, I only think that I have met before, and my friends who have mourned for the previous Meitu mobile phone products can also feel comfortable. The outer packaging style and form of Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version and other All Xiaomi mobile phone products are completely different, complying with the gift box style of the previous Meitu mobile phone.

This is a 6.39-inch Samsung AMOLED waterdrop screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 FHD + 403 PPI. The entire outline and details are exactly the same as the Xiaomi Mi 9 and the same waterdrop design. It supports the seventh generation of light-sensitive screen fingerprint unlocking. The details of the drop-shaped non-display area, it should be noted that it is not equipped with breathing light.

The extremely narrow chin is also highly synchronized with the previous Xiaomi Mi9, and there is no difference between them. The Xiaomi Mi CC9 inherits all the excellent design languages ​​from Xiaomi Mi9. Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version exclusive fairy color matching, it is only this one color. It can be said that this is Xiaomi’s most intriguing and innovative work in color matching

As the name suggests, the color of the fairy body is blue-green and pink. The multiple colors are concentrated on the back of the mobile phone. The rear top camera adds an “Angel Eye” similar to the Xiaomi Mi 9 series, which is surrounded by a high-gloss texture, which is a design element with the characteristics of Xiaomi Mi 9. Since the entire body is light and thin, the protrusion of the rear camera is inevitable.

The “xiaomi” LOGO logo at the bottom of the back of the fuselage has been replaced with a customized version of the “meitu”, which is one of the characteristics of the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version and the appearance of the other Xiaomi phones.

At the top of the fuselage, the 3.5mm headphone jack is carefully preserved, and an infrared remote control module is available, which can be used as a universal remote control for various home appliances at any time. This is the speaker opening at the bottom and the charging port.

Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version supports Nano-SIM+ (Nano-SIM/Micro-SD) three-select two card slot, support for additional expansion of 256GB (Vfat format), plus its own standard 256GB large-capacity storage, 512G huge capacity Use it long enough.

Hardware & Performance

The performance of the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version is not outstanding at the same price. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 used has been popularized to thousands of yuan today. However, the performance is no longer a fever for self-timer, appearance, etc. The necessary breakthroughs made by the breakthrough.

For the audience, that is, most of the little fairies who love to take selfies, based on the price of 2,599 yuan, 8GB of storage and 256GB of storage space is still very attractive, just the first lady who met in the street selfie. For example, when you heard about 2,599 yuan, you can start the grass with the 8+256G Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version.

As we said in the foreword, the most valuable asset that Xiaomi mobile phone and Meitu marry is the algorithm from Meitu camera, where the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version enjoys the Meitu native camera and the 100% Meitu beauty algorithm. The Xiaomi Mi CC9 and Xiaomi Mi CC9e in this series are different.

In terms of hardware, the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu version is also full of materials. The front is equipped with a Samsung S5KGD1 sensor, which can output up to 32 Megapixels of self-timer photos. Next, let’s examine the effect of the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version through the actual self-timer experience. First, let’s first take a selfie that everyone likes and hears, and the fast technology beauty Xiaomi personally brings it. The following self-timer samples are all adjusted and filmed by the editors and sisters themselves.

Most of the above samples are the most natural default classic portrait mode. It can be seen very clearly that the skin color reduction is very close to the naked eye, without obvious traces of industrial production, without losing the clarity of the picture. degree. This is exactly the same as all the Meitu brand phones that we have reviewed before, and it is different from the ordinary photos, and it is familiar with the background blur, creating a kind of awkward light. In order to make the test more close to the real and high-frequency self-timer scene environment, the author came to a large commercial plaza in the business district of the fast technology, invited the passing beauty to take a self-timer test through random interviews, and was rejected after numerous rejections. The following little fairy’s selfie.

The following small fairy self-portraits have been authorized by the head of the population, open a few levels of beauty, whether to open the background blur, use some angle and mode are handled by the little fairies themselves, so the degree of beauty, shooting angle Different. It is also coincidental that the first interviewed sister I met was the user of Meitu T series mobile phone. After talking about it, she did not know that Meitu brand had authorized Xiaomi, and she did not understand the relationship between Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu version and Xiaomi mobile phone and Meitu mobile phone.

After taking the phone, Miss Sister is skillfully adjusting the small function buttons, looking for the self-timer angle and the appropriate background scene. The expression management in place is directly multiple shots, which is enough to show that for Meitu mobile phone users, The transition to the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version has no obstacles.

However, it is worth pondering that Miss Sister had some regrets when she said goodbye. The “Meitu Mobile Phone” (Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu Custom Edition) has no appearance of the previous Casio. This makes the author somewhat wrong with the popularity of the Meitu mobile phone that has been slanted in our eyes in the past. It is also suggested that the Xiaomi mobile phone can consider leaving a product line that maintains the original design for the little fairies of the original Meitu mobile phone in the future. This is a sample of a small fairy who was interviewed by the interviewed audience. This is a photo of another little fairy with a weak outdoor environment.

In the group photo, you often encounter closed eyes/blinking that you accidentally photographed. In order to improve the filming rate, the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version provides the function of closed eye repair to repair the closed eyes that were accidentally photographed in the photo. In the process of finding a little fairy on the street, I encountered a little meat in the fast-paced technology here. How can I let him go?

Come and feel what is called a straight male self-timer, lack of thinking composition, mismanagement of facial expression management, a point of care about the face of the mobile phone with a huge risk of risk, and finally the beauty algorithm of the Meitu camera, especially The thin face is saved back, although the straight man has almost put the lens on his face, and also beautifies the skin area of ​​the face that is not good. This is a self-timer sample comparison taken with a street light as a sufficient light source in a nighttime outdoor environment, and there may be no difference in this regard.

Not only the previous Xiaomi but also the self-timer in the dark environment above at night, it has always been a very weak link for mobile phone manufacturers. Here, the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version benefits from the deep accumulation of Meitu AI beauty algorithm and realizes the challenging AI low-light portrait mode, which can capture various image information in the low light environment and carry out more natural. Refactoring to achieve a clean, clear picture. As shown in the comparison chart above, even if the author is in the dark environment where it is difficult to see the naked eye, the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version can still capture the author’s important face, while restoring the author’s face and applying beauty.

From the perspective of a straight steel man, in the dark light environment, the author still prefers the regular mode of the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version, the face is hidden in the night but faintly identifiable. As before, before we start our next sample display and analysis, it is necessary for us to make a simple combing of the current flood of IMX586 masters that are used in the next thousand dollars. Anyone who has noticed the flagship main CMOS parameters should be aware that although the IMX586 is the main camera, its aperture specifications are not the same.

We have said that for the already manufactured IMX 586, it is obviously impossible for the manufacturer to change the diameter of the lens at will. So where do the differences in the apertures of the major mobile phone cameras come from? To put it simply here, the manufacturer will add a variable aperture grating inside the lens to control the amount of light passing through the lens, ie the aperture. Obviously, based on multiple factors such as cost and space, the same is the IMX586, but the camera aperture will still not be exactly the same. For example, the main aperture of the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version is F1.75, which is consistent with the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE and the Red Rice K20 series. It also does not support optical image stabilization.

And its own flagship Xiaomi Mi 9 is F1.7. The aperture size here is represented by the F value, and the larger the F value, the smaller the aperture. Obviously, the F1.7 aperture of Xiaomi Mi 9 is the largest in the camp of Xiaomi mobile phones. The larger aperture means that the photos will become brighter in the same environment, especially in low light conditions. In addition, combined with the positioning of Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu customized version in Xiaomi mobile phone, it can also be predicted that it will inevitably differ from the photographic style trend and the upper limit of its own flagship Xiaomi Mi 9.

The above is a macro proof from 48MP main shots. It can be seen that under the sufficient daylight conditions, the main photo of the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version can fully demonstrate its resolution. Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version of the camera module has a 8MP super wide-angle lens, however, we did not find the super wide-angle mode switch in its own system camera, after consulting the official customer service of Xiaomi also got Xiaomi Mi CC9 beauty The custom version of the map does not currently support the answer to the super wide-angle mode. But then we found that its “party mode” can be adjusted to a super wide-angle lens. The hiddenness is still somewhat unclear, so I can only hope that the later OTA can be improved.

The relationship between the aperture and the depth of field is: the larger the aperture, the smaller the depth of field, and the smaller the aperture, the greater the depth of field. The small depth of field can take pictures with blurred background, and the background of the depth of field is clear. Of course, there is also a focal length that affects the depth of field. However, for mobile phones, the focal length is generally fixed and the physical focal length is limited.

Therefore, if you want your phone to shoot at any time of the day, the background blur, that is, the shallow depth of field photos, depends to some extent on the aperture. At this point, the main aperture of the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version For F1.75, it is not dominant in the IMX586 camp. But fortunately, you can make software-level adjustments in the album, as shown in the top image.

More than just a camera, the editing function of its photo album has completely transplanted the editing function of the previous Meitu brand mobile phone. Therefore, at present, its filter is still based on the person taking selfie and self-timer. It does not support the previous CC5. Pre-heating for a long time AI to change the day and other gameplay features.

The same as the same price segment of many models, Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version also does not support optical image stabilization, but the effect of holding the super night scene mode is quite good. It compensates for the lack of optical image stabilization through long exposure and multi-frame anti-shake calibration.

On the other hand, we can also find that the night scene algorithm is different from the adjustment trend of Xiaomi Mi 9 and Hongmi K20 series. In terms of night scene performance, Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu customized version almost completely delayed the beauty that we have tested before. The characteristic trend of the brand mobile phone is to emphasize the sharp lines and the rich color of high saturation.


Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version is still more important for the endurance performance, can be used as evidence that it uses a large capacity battery of 4000 mAh.

Online video testing

I use the client to play online barrage video, 20% volume, 70% brightness and play 91 minutes online from 96% of the power. Starting from 100% power, after 100 minutes, the remaining power is 85%. Power consumption is 15%. According to this power-down rate, in the same test environment, Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu customized version of full power can continuously play online video for more than 11 hours.

Game testing

The author used the long-awaited chicken hand tour “Peace Elite” to test the life of the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version, HD, starting from 100% power, the game 172 minutes.

Starting from 84% of electricity, after 184 minutes, the remaining power is 49%. It consumes 35% of electricity. According to this power-down rate, Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu customized version is expected to eat chicken for 7 to 8 hours in a row (note that Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version can not open HDR HD, the scene consumes less power).

Charging test

Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version is equipped with 18W flash charge, the screen can be returned from 1% to 95% in 80 minutes after the power-on state. In the same gear model, the charging specification is quite high.

Verdict & Buy

It is difficult for us to define the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version with a typical Xiaomi mobile phone or a typical Meitu mobile phone. It is not a separate one of the previous Xiaomi or Meitu. First of all, it does not have a fever. In 2019, the Snapdragon 710 appeared in a model with a price of 2,599 yuan. It was not the style that Xiaomi had always pursued the ultimate performance and was born with a fever. Can’t open HDR HD’s “Peace Elite” can make the straight men’s game party go round the road. However, the large memory of 8+256G just meets the needs of the audience for the daily experience.

Then, it is not “rough”. Even before the Xiaomi mobile phone detected the flagship Xiaomi Mi 9, it’s color scheme also took a safe route of all kinds of people. This time, the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version uses the “fairy color” that has not been seen before, and the eye-catching appearance is the eye-catching appearance.

Of course, through our actual street search, we also found that the classic appearance of the Casio-like mobile phone. Although some words are slanted in the eyes of most straight men, they have become the iconic existence of Meitu mobile phone brand. It is also suggested that the Xiaomi mobile phone can consider leaving a product line that maintains the original design for the little fairies of the original Meitu mobile phone in the future.

It is also different from the previous Meitu brand mobile phone. The Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu customized version benefited from the price-performance pricing route of Xiaomi mobile phone, and the price was lowered from the previous high to the price of 2599 yuan. Although it is obviously not talked about. Extremely cost-effective, but it also allows it to pay more attention to the female consumer group.

It should be emphasized that the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu customized version completely inherits the self-portrait and rear camera algorithm of the original Meitu brand mobile phone. In the street field visit, we saw that the original Meitu users are familiar with Xiaomi Mi CC9. The various fancy operations of the Meitu custom version have no threshold. At night, we also saw the AI ​​low light self-timer mode, such as night vision, in addition to the extra bonus of Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu custom version.

There are also a number of slots point so I was compelled to speak – Hardware support for ultra-wide-angle camera, but the software does not open a clear entrance ultra-wide-angle mode; Mimoji Meng beat, AI for days CC9 series such as Xiaomi other models of the main features currently in CC9 Meitu collective lack of Xiaomi customized version . We can only look forward to the follow-up to follow up to make up.

In addition, in the mainline, especially for young consumers which product models, I believe that is a customized version of Xiaomi Mi CC9 beauties had a face-lift with a completely different new “Xiaomi + Meitu ” phone: Fan has a clear, gentle female range of children’s design, even rolling a public front of their own flagship camera, the original ecology of Meitu mobile experience. After a long time, after many detours, choose to marry Meitu, can you make Xiaomi turns around in front of the sister, win the attention and reputation in the young people, especially in the offline and female markets, we will wait and see how to customize the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu, The future of the edition and its sister models.
