Ahead of the official February 20th launch date, Xiaomi revealed a bunch of specifications of the new Xiaomi Mi 9 smartphone, including details about the screen, triple rear camera setup, wireless charging and more.
As rumored earlier, the Xiaomi Mi 90 will use Samsung's AMOLED display with 1080p FHD+ resolution, offer 600nit of brightness, 60000:1 contrast ratio, and 103.8% NTSC wide color gamut. It will be protected by Gorilla Glass 6.
The big surprise is the triple rear camera setup which has a 48-megapixel 1/2” sensor with a 0.8 µm pixel size, which makes 12-megapixel images. It is supported by a 16-megapixel sensor with an ultra wide-angle lens with 117-degree FoV and f/2.2 aperture, as well as a 12-megapixel sensor behind a telephoto lens. The setup also includes Laser Autofocus with PDAF and CDAF.
The rest of the detailed features include a new wireless charging with closed-loop Voice Coil Motor (VCM), which should enable 20W charging speeds. It will also offer better sound quality, Game Turbo mode, improved in-screen fingerprint sensor and more.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 will be available in three color options, Lavender Violet, Ocean Blue, and Piano Black, as well as the special Mi 9: Battle Angle version with the transparent rear panel.
In case you missed earlier rumors, it should be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC, paired up with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 should be a worthy successor to Xiaomi's flagship lineup and hopefully, the price won't be higher compared to previous Mi flagships.
