Xiaomi is making the Mi 9 official at an event in China on February 20. We've already seen a lot of leaks about it, and even some officially posted teasers - check out these images, for example. The company has confirmed that the phone will have the Snapdragon 855 chipset on board, and the main rear camera is said to be a 48 MP unit.
Now a new purported leak of a promo poster gives us a picture of what to expect in terms of pricing. Apparently the normal version of the handset will retail for CNY 3,499, which right now translates into about $516 or €458. There will also be a variant with a transparent back, allegedly to be priced at CNY 5,999 ($885 or €785).
If this info pans out, it means the Mi 9 will be launched for a higher price than its predecessor, which started at CNY 2,699 ($398 or €353). Then again, with the upcoming phone you do get three rear cameras for the first time in a Xiaomi. Keep in mind that even if these prices are real, in other parts of the world the phone may end up being sold for different amounts.
Unsurprising from what looks to be a promotional slide, Xiaomi's next flagship has the smallest chin of them all, coming in at just 3.6mm. This was shared by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun on Weibo a few hours ago.
Recent Lenovo phones come with Google framework pre-installed. S5 Pro and Z5s are not on Google's list either and I was able to install GApps easily. I suggest you double check what the person said. My main point is Xiaomi doesn't have the lowes...
