He confirmed the fact during a chat with Roy Wang from Chinese boy band TFBoys. Jun also posted a number of images on Weibo that show off the blue colour variant of the phone.

Jun also claimed that the Mi 9 sports “unique colours” as the back panel is built with a nano-level laser engraving holographic technology and dual layer nano coating.

Xiaomi will launch the Mi 9 smartphone in China on February 20, and it is likely to make an appearance at MWC in Barcelona, Spain.

The phone is likely to sport a 6.4-inch display with minimal bezels, and could offer a screen to body ratio of approximately 90 percent. Previous reports have also claimed that Xiaomi could launch two phones: the regular Mi 9 and the Mi 9 SE.

Xiaomi hasn’t shipped any Mi devices in India since the Mi 5, and there is no info on whether it’ll launch this device in India. Previously, Jun had also announced that the Mi 9 will support 24W fast charging, however, leaked specs revealed that there will be 32W fast charging. Reportedly, the phone will come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It will run MIUI 10 based on Android Pie out of the box and have a 3,500mAh battery.
