Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi is all set to launch its flagship smartphone – the Mi 9 and the company claims that it is the best-looking device in its lineup so far. Xiaomi has today confirmed that it will be launching its upcoming Mi 9 smartphone on February 20.
We should point out, that a much-anticipated smartphone launch is already scheduled for February 20. We are talking about the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup, which will be launched on the same day at the company’s Unpacked 2019 event in San Francisco. Samsung will be launching its Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10E smartphone, along with its new earbuds and smartwatch at the event that is scheduled for February 20.
The company has posted a photo of Roy Wang from TFBoys holding the Mi 9 on its Weibo account. In the image, it can be seen that the smartphone has a triple camera setup on its back panel that will have sensors stacked vertically. Furthermore, the top sensor can be seen with a colourful accent around it.
Although it looks like an LED light, some speculative reports have also suggested that it may be a colourful piece of glass.
Xiaomi Mi 9 smartphone is expected to sport a 6.4-inch 19:9 FHD+ AMOLED display that will come with a waterdrop shaped notch on top. The waterdrop-shaped notch will house a 24MP selfie camera with the Sony IMX576 sensor. The smartphone is said to come with a design that will be similar to OnePlus 6T and the back panel would be like the one we saw in Huawei P20 Pro.
The device is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with X24 LTE modem clubbed with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. There will reportedly be another model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage. The smartphone is expected to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Xiaomi Mi 9 will run Android 9.0 Pie that will be skinned with MIUI 10. We would have to wait a few more days to get to know more about the specifications of the upcoming smartphone.
