In July this year, Xiaomi unveiled three phones under the all-new “CC” lineup named Mi CC9, CC9e & CC9 Meitu Edition. The Xiaomi Mi CC9e even made it to the global market as the Xiaomi Mi A3. Today, Xiaomi launched yet another phone under this lineup named Mi CC9 Pro. Now, this is a different phone when you compare it to the other phones in this series.
The Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro is a premium mid-range phone & also the World’s first phone (available to buy) with a 108MP camera. Other impressive features include Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SOC, a 5,260mAh battery, Penta Camera setup on the rear & more.
Starting with the design, the Mi CC9 Pro screams “premium” in every way. There is a gorgeous design with a curved display on the front with a U-shaped notch, a metal frame & a glass back. There are five rear cameras placed vertically & the phone also has a Quad Dual LED flash. Xiaomi decided not to ditch the headphone jack, so yes, it is present & is on the bottom alongside the USB Type-C port.
The display on the front is 6.47 AMOLED Full-HD+ panel, which is certified by TÜV Rheinland & the brightness can go up to 600nit. Under the screen, there is an ultra-thin optical fingerprint scanner. The SOC powering the Mi CC9 Pro is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G & it is an octa-core chip with Adreno 618 GPU. There is 6/8GB RAM & 128/256GB internal storage.
The main USP of Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro is its camera setup. There are five cameras on the rear. The primary camera is a 108MP shooter with 1/1.33″ large Samsung sensor, 1.6μm 4 in 1 large pixel, f/1.69 aperture & 4-axis Optical Image Stabilization. It is worth mentioning that the Mi CC9 Pro 8GB + 256GB variant has an 8P lens, while the other variants have a 7P lens.
Talking about other cameras, there is a 12MP telephoto camera with 2X Optical Zoom & f/2.0 aperture. Then there is an ultra-telephoto lens with 10X Hybrid Optical Zoom, 50X Digital Zoom & 4-axis Optical Image Stabilization. The fourth camera is a 20 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle unit with 117-degree FOV & there is a fifth macro lens using which you can go as close as 1.5cm to the subject.
On the front, there is a 32 Megapixel with f/2.0 aperture & 1.6μm 4 in 1 large pixel.
