In April this year, Xiaomi had launched the Mi 8 flagship phone. It is likely that the Chinese manufacturer may announce the Mi 9 phone with topnotch specs by the same time in the coming year. Well-known tipster and designer Benjamin Geskin has shared a render of the next year’s flagship phone from the company along with its probable specifications.
The render of the Xiaomi Mi 9 shared by Geskin shows that it will be sporting a smaller notch than the recently released Xiaomi’s notched smartphones. The leakster has speculated that the Mi 9 could be equipped with a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen that will be equipped with an under-display fingerprint reader.
The back panel of the phone is fitted with a vertical triple camera setup. An LED flash is placed between the first two camera sensors. It may feature 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 as the primary sensor of the triple camera unit. Related rumors have claimed that the Mi 9 could be coming with 48-megapixel + 13-megapixel + 16-megapixel triple camera system.
The smartphone is rumored to be fueled by the upcoming Snapdragon 8150 chipset and 6 GB / 8 GB RAM. The highest configuration edition of the smartphone may feature 10 GB of RAM. It could be featuring a 3,700mAh battery with Quick Charge 5.0 support. The glass rear of the phone will allow it to support wireless charging. Lastly, the tipster claims that the Mi 9 may go official as a 5G smartphone. The leak does not contain any information on the pricing of the smartphone.
Before launching the Xiaomi Mi 9, the Chinese manufacturer is expected to announce the 5G edition of the Mi MIX 3. Xiaomi has already confirmed that it will be launching the Mi MIX 3 5G version in China by the end of Q1 2019. Probably this phone may carry improved specs compared to the Mi MIX 3 that was announced recently.
