Share

There's a China-exclusive transparent variant of the Mi 9 as well with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage which retails for CNY 3,999 (~ Rs 42,300). This is Xiaomi's ambitious device, that has Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 855 processor, and a triple-camera system led by a 48-megapixel sensor. 6GB of RAM & 64GB of Storage 2. The question is how the Mi 9 will compare to Huawei's P30 Pro, which is set to be unveiled at the end of March - and may have a whopping four cameras on the back. Xiaomi Mi 9 will have 90.7 per cent screen to body ratio, which is higher than the 83.66 screen to body ratio of the Xiaomi Mi 8.

Of course, there is a small drawback to all this, because to reach that full 20-watts, Xiaomi had to ditch the standard Qi wireless charging standards when transferring more than 10 watts of electricity. The 20MP selfie camera is housed in a waterdrop notch, which is one reason why you're getting so much screen real estate. The holographic spectrum - as Xiaomi is calling it - creates a shimmering as you twirl the Mi 9 in the light, and the end result is simply lovely.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 will feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen. At the top we have a 16 megapixel ultra-wide camera at f2.2 and 117 degrees of field of view. "It has a main 48MP f/1.75 camera with Sony IMX 586 1/2.0" sensor that outputs images at 12MP.

Certainly, the most noticeable aspect of the spec sheet is the triple-camera setup. If you run out of juice, you can quickly get it charged back up - the Mi 9 supports fast charging of up to 20W, while wireless chargers, such as Apple's only do 7.5W of charging.

Powering the show is MiUI, which is not my favorite, but at least is powered by Android 9 Pie, and with lots of services mainly geared to the Asian market.
