The 5G version of the Xiaomi Mi 9 has appeared on TENAA. These are just preliminary details, the full specifications are yet to be published, but they do confirm some of the rumors and give us some photos to look at.
The phone is slightly thicker – 8.95mm, up from 7.6mm – to accommodate a larger 4,000mAh battery (up from 3,300mAh). It should support 45W fast charging (up from 27W).
According to the TENAA data, the screen size remains at 6.39”, but the rumors claim additional upgrades are happening too – like switching the 1440p+ resolution.
Also, Xiaomi is expected to bump the chipset up to Snapdragon 855+ and add OIS to the main camera on the back. Like the Mi Mix 3 5G, it will have a dual SIM card slot (and dual standby).
Based on a post by China Unicom, the phone will be called “Xiaomi Mi 9S” and it should be released in September.
Sounds like some welcome improvements to me, I was looking at the Mi 9 as my next phone, with 1 eye on Mi Mix 4 and Mi 10 in the not so distant future. But a larger battery, OIS and a larger and higher resolution screen would all be welcome. I'm sure...
1440p screen, OIS and 4000mAh battery? If that happens, I will buy it without even looking at price and alternatives
