Xiaomi has announced three new phones under the Mi CC9 series – the regular Xiaomi CC9, Xiaomi CC9e, and Xiaomi CC9 Meitu Edition. They look similar but tend to differ in specs and features.
The regular CC9 has got a large 6.39-inch Super AMOLED screen, triple rear camera system, Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, and a 32MP F/2.0 selfie shooter.
It also has a dual-glass design, waterdrop notch, under-display UD fingerprint scanner, AI portrait mode for the front-facing camera, new Mimoji animated avatars, and a metal frame.
The CC9 camera setup includes 48MP F/1.8 main + 8MP ultrawide unit + 2MP depth sensor. You have the options to chose from either 6GB RAM with 64GB storage or the 8GB RAM with the 128GB model.
As it’s a Xiaomi device, it comes with MIUI 10 on top of Android Pie. It also includes a 3.5mm headphone jack, IR port, NFC, and a 4030mAh with 18W fast charging.
For the regular CC9, there are three colors available: Black, Blue, and White. Pricing starts at CNY 1799 ($260) and CNY 1999 ($290) for the 6GB RAM/64GB variant and 8GBRAM/128GB model.
Now talking about the CC9e, the “e” stands for essential. This device has a smaller 6-inch AMOLED screen, 1560 x 720-pixel resolution, and UD fingerprint sensor. For this, there are three variants – 4GB RAM/64GB built-in storage (CNY 1,299), 6GB/64GB, and 6GB/128GB (CNY 1,599)
Xiaomi Mi CC9 Meitu Edition is almost the same as the regular Mi CC9 but set in pearl white. The device is more camera-centric and features AI low light portrait mode, full body beauty filters, and movie portrait. This one is powered by a Snapdragon 710 SoC, 256GB onboard storage, and 8GB RAM. Pricing is set at CNY 2,599 ($378).\
