For a few days rumours have circulated about the new Xiaomi, CC9 and CC9e smartphones. It seems that the rumours may be true - the first model is already starting the certification process.
I admit that initially I did not believe in leaks about new Xiaomi. The names seemed strange to me, the specifications were not very revealing... The situation changed however the appearance of the CC9 model in the Chinese office of TENAA. So, we know that a phone with this name really exists, and the specification that is circulating on the net takes on real shape.
What will CC9 offer? It is to have a Snapdragon 730 processor, a 4000 mAh battery with fast 27W charging and NFC. The front camera will have 32-megapixels, while the main camera 18-megapixels. The fingerprint reader will be mounted under the screen - as confirmed by photos from the TENAA office. The phone shown on them seems to be quite similar to Mi9. Xiaomi CC9 is expected to appear in three memory versions: 6+128, 8+128 and 8+256 GB, and their prices are to be 2499, 2799 and 3099 yuan respectively. It gives approx. 362, 405 and 449 dollars.
Xiaomi CC9 is also supposed to have a cheaper variant, CC9e - different processor (Snapdragon 710), charging power (18 W) and the position of the fingerprint reader (traditionally, at the back). This phone is to appear only in the version with 6+64 GB memory and cost 1599 yuan - 232 USD.
It is worth paying attention to the changed Xiaomi logo visible in the photo from TENAA. Is it a change? Or maybe it's only for the CC series...?To make it even more interesting, a photo has even appeared on which we can watch the CC9 live, in the hands of the heads of Xiaomi and Meitu, who cooperate in creating this model:
