The Xiaomi Mi 9 is just released and already making waves. One reason is the price. This flagship phone is incredibly affordable when you consider all the features you get.
A dynamic display
The Mi 9 features a 6.39-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel, with a waterdrop cut out for the front camera. Xiaomi says that Reading Mode 2.0 and Sunlight Mode 2.0 give the display a dynamic difference, while the panel is layered with Gorilla Glass 6. Look out too for the striking shades of blue that reflect off the device.
A modern sensor
Xiaomi is keeping up with modern trends, and popular demand, by including an in-display fingerprint sensor in the Mi 9.
The price tag looks even better when you consider that the Mi 9 is one of the first devices to be powered by Qualcomm's latest chipset, the Snapdragon 855. This offers significant performance improvements over its predecessor - although the Snapdragon 845 was brilliant in its own right — and the node shift to 7nm will deliver a significant boost in energy-efficiency.
Game Turbo is GO
The Game Turbo feature starts as soon as you launch a game. This cool feature allows your device to perform at peak levels for longer amounts of time with higher framerates.
Three on the back, one on the front
The three-camera set up on the back delivers more of Xiaomi's high-quality photographic results, thanks to a main 48MP f/1.75 camera, alongside a 16MP wide-angle lens and 12MP telephoto shooter. For crystal clear selfies, there's a 20MP camera upfront with HDR.
Fast, wireless and ongoing
The Mi 9 comes with a fast wireless charging option, while the 3300mAh battery should last all day without too many problems.
