Xiaomi Mi 9 product details

The Xiaomi Mi 9 is the first Xiaomi phone with 3 cameras on the back including one of 48 megapixels. This abundance of pixels ensures razor-sharp images full of detail on which you can also zoom in. We're here to discuss what else you can do with the Mi 9.

Holographic design

The Mi 9 stands out immediately thanks to its holographic glass design. These special color versions seem to play with the light. The glass casing is slightly curved so that it lies comfortably in the hand. Because only the edges are curved, it can lie flat on a table, although the camera module protrudes slightly at the back. By the way, the camera housing offers space for 3 different cameras. A unique feature for Xiaomi. The main camera consists of a 48 megapixel Sony sensor. This abundance of megapixels makes zooming in sharper. There is also a 16 megapixel camera with 117° wide-angle lens for landscapes and a 12 megapixel telephoto zoom to zoom in optically without loss of quality. This gives you a lens for different situations for the best picture.

Great Samsung screen

At the front of the Xiaomi Mi 9 we find a large 6.39 inch AMOLED screen from Samsung. They are known for the best screens in the phone industry. This is due to the accurate color reproduction, high contrast values and excellent legibility outdoors. The screen has an integrated fingerprint scanner. The resolution comes out at Full HD+ and at the top there is a small drop-shaped notch for the selfie camera. It measures 20 megapixels and therefore more than enough for sharp selfies. The Mi 9 has various functions to enhance your self portraits. Think of AI Beauty and AI makeup. There is even a portrait mode that can separate foreground from background thanks to the necessary artificial intelligence.

  • Most most powerful Qualcomm processor today; the Snapdragon 855

Super powerrr

In terms of processing power, the best currently available has been used. The Snapdragon 855 can also be found in the most expensive flagships. With the Xiaomi Mi 9 you just don't pay the main price. The battery has a maximum capacity of 3300 mAh and given the screen size we would have liked to have seen that a bit higher. Fortunately, the Mi 9 does support fast charging in the form of Quick Charge 4.0. Charging can be done with up to 27 watts. A bit strange is that Xiaomi delivers an 18 watt charger which corresponds with Quick Charge 3.0. It is therefore worthwhile to purchase a QC4+ charger directly in order to be able to charge extra quickly. If you do buy accessories, we definitely recommend a Qi charger. Here you can put the Mi 9 on to charge it wirelessly. Ideal for those who don't feel like working with cables.
