Xiaomi Mi 9 specs and features officially revealed
Xiaomi Mi 9is arriving in two days, but the company is so proud of its upcoming flagship, it already teased pretty much everything interesting about the smartphone. In a series of posts it revealed colors, the specifics of the triple camera setup along with wireless charging, fingerprint scanner, screen and some other features.
The Mi 9 triple setup will have a 48 MP camera with 0.8 µm pixel size and 1/2” image sensor, effectively outputting 12 MP images. The second snapper will be 16 MP ultra wide-angle with 117-degree FoV and f/2.2 aperture. There is also a telephoto lens with 12 MP sensor 1.0 µm pixel size and f/2.2 aperture. The whole setup, lined vertically, will be supported by Laser Autofocus that brings along PDAF and CDAF.
Instead of having regular rectangular coils for the wireless charging, we will see a circular module that will enable up to 20W charging speeds, if we can trust some hands-on and unboxed videos, leaked earlier today. While it is sitting behind the back panel, the front will come with an AMOLED panel by Samsung and Full HD+ resolution. It will have FP scanner underneath and will bring features like Reading Mode 2.0 and Sunlight Mode 2.0 to improve readability in all conditions.
Xiaomi Mi 9 will have “outstanding sound quality” that the company claims will be equivalent to 0.9 cc large speaker box. Gaming enthusiasts will enjoy Game Turbo - the Xiaomi solution for boosting the CPU and GPU (or as manufacturers call it - “allocate resources”) to provide smoother experience.
This whole package will be protected by sixth-gen Gorilla Glass, with the camera setup having a sapphire glass lens over it. There are going to be three colors - Lavender Violet, Ocean Blue, and Piano Black. A fourth variant called Xiaomi Mi 9 Battle Angel, is expected to make an appearance, but it will have a transparent rear panel.
