Xiaomi Mi 9 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year. Now, the company has officially announced the launched date to be February 20th. which means the handset will be unveiled on the very same day as the Samsung Galaxy S10 gets unpacked. Meanwhile, some photos of the upcoming Chinese flagship got leaked online and are now circulating the web.
Xiaomi Mi 9 has been subjected to a lot of leaks and rumors in the recent past so the key specification is already known. The Chinese have now also confirmed the launch date and the debut is expected to take place just a few hours before the Galaxy S10 event. The announcement of a 5G supported handset, Mi Mix 3 is also expected on the same day.
The new Xiaomi Mi 9 will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 processorwhich should work in conjunction with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, although the device could have a special edition version with 256GB or 512GB of internal storage.
To close the top-of-the-line set, Xiaomi could also include the under-the-screen digital fingerprint sensor, 5G support, 3,500 mAh battery with a quick charge technology at 32W and Android 9.0 Pie running under the Xiaomi’s custom MIUI 10 interface.
New photos of Xiaomi Mi 9 have surfaced the web. The triple camera setup on the back got confirmed in the images. There is no fingerprint scanner on the back as hyped in the rumors, so that’s a relief and the new gradient glass back also looks stunning.
On the front, Xiaomi Mi 9 maintains the same Notch tradition that many consider outdated. Flagships like the S10 are now opting for a hole or other alternatives but on Xiaomi flagships, we still see the water drop notch.
