This is big, the Xiaomi Mi 9 has just been announced today in China, and it is loaded with exciting features, plus a price tag that will probably make other 2019 flagships killer. The phone is also being released alongside what I think is a record-breaking 20-watt wireless charger, which charges this phone faster than many smartphones charge when they’re physically plugged in, let’s get into it.

Show me I mean it is built like something out of a sci-fi movie with minimal seams and ports. So no headphone jack or microSD card slot. And a super glossy back. The front is fitted with the latest Gorilla Glass six and the entire back glass is curved. Unlike the past variants where only the edges were curved, and so it slides effortlessly into your palm. But just be careful. It can also slide out just as easily. If we compare to Huawei mate 20 pro.
And when the light starts to dip detail is still retained surprisingly as well with the Snapdragon 855. And six gigabytes of RAM. The Xiaomi Mi 9 is one of the most powerful phones in the world. This chip is a beast and its effects. Extend far beyond just having a responsive UI Wi-Fi speeds are awesome app load times are fast. And you often still have a spare 20% of unused headroom. Even when you’re playing top tier games.
I mentioned that the phone also supports superfast wireless charging. And well, we’ve seen similar improvements to the wire department. The mi nine comes with a 27-watt charger, which can fully charge.
The phone is a fraction over an hour faster than one plus dash charging. But not quite as fast as then you walk charge 30. Different kinds of needs for this charging speed. Advantage because its 3300 milliamp-hour capacity is definitely on the lower end. But bear in mind. The latest Android nine and efficient seven-nanometre chip and e 1080p o LED display all to contribute to pretty good efficiency here.
I was cautiously optimistic about the camera. This is shammy’s first foray into the triple camera market. And for the most part, it seems like it was worth the wait at the top there’s a 12-megapixel. A telephoto lens lets you zoom in two times. Below that, the primary 48-megapixel sensor under the bottom. A 16-megapixel super wide-angle camera and weirdly enough the flash module is actually behind the glass on the back of the phone.
The company has added this halo around the top camera doesn’t really do anything. What is cool is that the camera portion is coated with sapphire glass which stops it from scratching. When it’s inevitably scraped on a table because let’s face it. It does kind of stick out standard photos come out at 12 megapixels.
which is the mode I’d recommend you keep it in HDR looks good and colors are balanced but in good lighting, you can take full 48-megapixel shots, they’re a little noisy if you zoom all the way in, probably a sense of limitation. But nonetheless, more detail to them the standard 12-megapixel shots.
