The sixth member of Xiaomis Mi 9 line is finally here as the company just unveiled the brand new Mi 9 Lite at an event held in Spain. Aside from the new name, the device is just a rebranded Mi CC9 with the same 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display, triple camera setup and Snapdragon 710 chipset.
Like the CC9, the Mi 9 Lite features a waterdrop notch for its 32MP selfie cam while the back houses a 48MP main shooter, 8MP ultrawide lens and 2MP depth helper. The build remains identical with a dual glass construction and color-shifting back design. The phone ships with MIUI 10 on top of Android 9 Pie.
The device will be available with 4 and 6 GB RAM and 64/128GB storage, expandable via microSD. The Mi 9 Lite will come in White, Blue and Black colors and reservations will open on September 20. The base 4/64GB model starts at 319 ($352) while the 6/128GB variant will set buyers back 349 ($385).
