The Xiaomi Mi 9 is packed a load of modern-day smartphone technology into a stylish mid-budget smartphone with an affordable price tag. The most notable highlights of the device include a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 CPU and up to 8 GB of RAM packed into a dual-screen phone with a futuristic, flat design. Apart from the interesting specs, the device also boasts a gorgeous, futuristic, Gorilla Glass 5 screen, high-end speakers, a large LCD, and a fingerprint sensor.
The Mi 9 has two SIM cards – a SIM slot for GSM carriers in China like China Mobile, and a slot for international SIMs from any country. The phone also has a USB Type-C port which can be used to connect headphones or connect the Mi pad to the computer. In addition, the phone supports a micro SD card, although this slot can only support SD cards which use a host device like Micro SD. The Mi 9 comes with two external memory cards – a 16GB card for use on the phone itself, and a huge 2GB card which you can connect to the computer. These cards are not compatible with the older Windows operating systems. Mi 9
The Mi 9 specifications have leaked online before its official release, and it appears that the leaks give us more information about the phone’s design and how it will come in colours like black, grey, white, pink, gold, silver, and yellow. It also gives us our first look at some of the new features that the company is including in its upgrade to Android Kitkat 3.4. The Mi interface has been completely redesigned to provide users with a more fluid experience. It is also lighter and takes up less space on the homescreen. It has a new lock screen which has a widget style interface, similar to the one found on iPhones.
The Mi 9 specifications reveal that the phone has a 6.39 inch capacitive full-HD capacitive display, which offers bright text and crisp images. The phone’s camera is also improved with a new lens and image stabilization. The camera is also equipped with a dual pixel technology called panoramic, which allows for the use of objects and backgrounds during video recording. The phone also uses an updated camera app that offers a wide range of photo control options. Apart from the camera, the upgraded version of the phone comes with an updated messaging app that offers text and picture texting and internet messaging.
Another important feature of the Mi 9 is that it comes with an iris scanner, called the Secureasonic fingerprint scanner, which is located on the front of the phone. This iris scanner is designed specifically for the Mi 9, and does not work on any other smartphone model. Users can easily recognize it thanks to its metallic appearance. In order to gain access to the user’s information, the Secureasonic sensor uses biometrics – meaning, it can only be accessed by the designated user.
The Mi 9.0 comes with a fingerprint reader, which is located on the home button. The Mi 9.0 comes with two SIM cards and has a microSD slot for storage expansion. There are also slots for data cable and headphone jack. The Mi 9.0 also differs from the regular Redmi 1S in that it has a dual camera setup, which allows for better picture quality and better functionality. Apart from the dual cameras, this handset also comes with a heart rate monitor, as well as a torch. The handsets run on the Android operating system, like most high-end phones do.
