You don't have the dimensions yet but got the battery test done!!! PR web 🕸 browsing time though. Tired 😫 feeling 19.5:9 notched tall screens. Weird, no 🙊 beauty.
The design team was targeting Huawei P20Pro for Mi9's camera setup. They are happy with the end-result and believe in its match-up against P20Pro. Based on dxomark test-result, the design team fully deliver what they promise.
I applaud Xiaomi for bypassing the IP rating so that more effort and resources can be placed where it really matters. Xiaomi Mi9 is specifically designed for those buyers who take good care of their smartphones. Please keep this important tradition which makes Xiaomi a great company it already is and an even greater company in years ahead.
Another beast baby hatched by Xiaomi. Numbawan!
Does it have Widevine L1 ?
Battery is only 3300 mAh, hopes the dark mode will help a bit
Testing results from www.dxomark.com:
"With convincing results across the board and no major flaws, the Mi 9 is the third-best device so far for still imaging, edged out only by Huawei juggernauts Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro. In video mode it does even better, finding itself at the very top of our ranking, making it the top choice for mobile video shooters. "
The dxomark for Xiaomi Mi 9 is already out: 107.
The new-runner after Mate20Pro (and Huawei P20Pro), but ahead of all other smartphones.
No LTE band B28. I am not interested.
New marketing words:
Except for the flat screen, the rest of Xiaomi Mi9 body is all curves.
(There is a new word for these curves: The Mermaid Curve.)

For those of you who are looking for a flagship-worthy smartphone with a compact body, Honor 11 will be a good option. You can check out Honor 10 and its review to get some general idea. Due to this year's bezel-less full screen design, its size should be around 145mm x70mm x8mm or smaller. The screen size should be about 6" or slightly smaller. Kirin980, top-grade 2-3 camera setup, premium design and premium build-quality. Its screen can either be AMOLED or IPS, depending on whether Huawei can receive Samsung allocation for AMOLED. It will come by May, priced at ~$400 or slightly higher.
Hudinited, 19 Feb 2019Flagship power using midrange camera justifies the price. So it won't be an true flagship killer.FYI the camera is better than mi mix 3 which boast a 103 on dxomark

Do you have more info about the quality of this camera ? From what I heard it's been installed on the Honor View 20 and it's great
Would this be a Honor view 20 killer, wanted to get a view 20 soon, but might change my mind.
