The Mi 9 is a gorgeous device that offers excellent value, but Xiaomi needs to rethink ads on MIUI.
At this point, you don’t need me to tell you that Xiaomi makes products that offer great value for money. The Chinese manufacturer showed time and again over the last five years that it can absolutely dominate in this regard, and even though we’ve seen other brands try to emulate Xiaomi’s strategy, none have been as successful.
The Mi Mix 3 5G comes to Europe in May for €599 and the Mi 9 goes on sale February 28 starting at €449.
Xiaomi showed off its newest model — and a revamped 5G model of last year’s phone — at Mobile World Congress, along with some ridiculously fast wireless charging, 48MP cameras, and holographic phone coatings. The future sure is shiny, isn’t it?
It’s not all that long since I reviewed the Mi 8 (and Mi 8 Pro) — both very good smartphones, by the way — but now Xiaomi has officially announced its successor in China. The Mi 9 features a new 6.39-inch 1080p AMOLED display with a much smaller waterdrop notch and adds an ultra-wide angle lens for triple rear cameras.
The phone has already been teased by Xiaomi’s CEO and we’ve also seen what the new translucent back with fake internals will look like. Read More
It’s Galaxy S10 day today, but that didn’t stop some of its rivals from coming out with brand new smartphones. While LG chose to unleash a flurry of affordable mid-range phones that will not compete against the Galaxy S10 series, Xiaomi went a lot bigger than that. The Xiaomi Mi 9, which was spotted in plenty of teasers ahead of Wednesday’s event, is going to deliver a few impressive features, including support for up to 12GB of RAM. And, unlike the 12GB Galaxy S10 that will be quite costly, the Mi 9 will be incredibly affordable if you can find it in stores that is.
