Xiaomi has been sharing teasers about its upcoming smartphone in the CC range. The leaks of the smartphone have also been surfacing online and the company has also released an official promo video of the Xiaomi CC9. Now, Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun has said that the CC-series devices are aimed at young and creative people. The company also revealed that Xiaomi CC9 will be launched on July 2.
The announcement was made by Xiaomi’s official Weibo account where an invitation to Xiaomi CC9 launch event was shared. The event will take place in Beijing, China on July 2, 2019.
Nothing much is known about the upcoming Xiaomi CC9, however, earlier leaks suggest that it will come with a triple-rear camera setup. Reports also said that the company will be launching another smartphone in its CC-series named Xiaomi CC9e and it will most likely be a smaller version of the regular CC9.
The name CC seems new even for Xiaomi as it has never released any smartphone with such a nametag. Earlier, the company didn’t reveal what the meaning behind the name was, but the CEO earlier had mentioned that it can mean ‘Chic & Cool’ or ‘Curious & Creative’. We would have to wait for July 2 to know for sure which one it is exactly.
Till now, Xiaomi hasn’t revealed much details about the specifications and the features of CC9. But according to recent leaks, Xiaomi CC9 will sport a 6.39-inch Full-HD+ (1080 x 2340 pixels) AMOLED display. It will reportedly run Android 9 Pie skinned with MIUI. The device is said to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730 SoC and it will pack a 4,000mAh battery that will come with 27W fast charging support. The handset will also feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.
We already know that the Xiaomi CC9 will feature triple rear camera but there are no official details available about it. However, according to recent leaks, the Xiaomi CC9 will come with a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor. This will be paired with a 16MP secondary sensor and a 12MP tertiary camera. On the front, there will reportedly be a 32MP selfie camera for video callings.
