Xiaomi is set to announce the Mi 9 Pro at an event on September 24 alongside the Mi Mix 4. Both will support 5G connectivity and will pack the Snapdragon 855+ SoC.
We already saw some official images of the Mi 9 Pro yesterday alongside details on its battery and charging speeds. Now the phone popped up in a short hands-on video which gives us our best look at it yet.
Visually the phone retains the design of the Mi 9 with the same flat display and waterdrop notch upfront and a triple camera setup around the back. The Mi 9 Pro will indeed come with the Snapdragon 855+ chipset and 5G support as well as a 4,000 mAh battery with support for 30W wireless charging.
Meanwhile two new teasers confirmed the Mi 9 Pro will come with a new haptic motor which will deliver stronger vibration feedback. In addition, the phone will also come with a revised cooling module with 5 graphite layers, capable of reducing CPU temperatures by up to 10°C.
The camera department will retain a triple camera setup with a 48MP main shooter. Other specs include 256GB storage and 8GB RAM. On the software front, the device is running MIUI 10.4.1 on top of Android 9 Pie.

Such a good device but still a no go for me because it doesn't come with stereospeakers. I guess I'm staying with my Pocofone for another while.
Is this Mi 9 Pro going to be another just China only for months before going global sales or its straight release to international buyers.
