At the end of last month, Xiaomi had teased a new sub-brand that will majorly focus on millennials. It’s no secret that millennials give more priority to photography in smartphones; that’s what the Mi CC Series is all about.
Yesterday Xiaomi officially launched three new gadgets under the new series; Mi CC9, Mi CC9e, and CC9 Meitu edition. Besides providing excellent photography hardware, the phones also hold a good amount of battery capacity.
Xiaomi MI CC9
Mi CC9 is at the top of the series with a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution (1080 x 2340). Under the hood, the CC9 packs the mid-range chipset, Snapdragon 710, paired with either 6 or 8GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB internal memory. If that’s not enough, you can expand it via microSD up to 256GB.
For the millennial-targeting, the device has a triple camera setup on the rear side with a 48MP primary lens, an 8MP ultra-wide unit, and a 2MP depth sensor. The selfie camera is Samsung’s 32MP snapper housed in a tear-drop notch for more screen to body ratio.
A 4030mAh battery powers the device, complemented with an 18W fast charger. Other notable features include; Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 skin, under-display fingerprint scanner, NFC support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Like the MI CC9, the CC9e is the “lite” version with similar functionality. It features 6-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 665 SoC, 4030mAh battery, same triple camera setup like the CC9, Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10, under-display camera and still, retains the headphone jack with no NFC support.
MI CC9 Meitu Edition
The Meitu Edition is much similar to the top tier MI CC9 with the inclusion of few camera tweaks. It’s majorly targeted at vloggers with its AI low light portrait mode, vlog mode, movie portrait plus full body beauty filters.
The few camera tweaks will set you back around $378 for the MI CC9 Meitu Edition, while the MI CC9 goes for $260 and the lower MI CC9e costs $189 for the basic model.
