Xiaomi is gearing up to introduce a new smartphone series in China called the ‘CC’ series. The Mi CC9 will be one of the smartphones in the new lineup, which is confirmed to come equipped with a 32MP camera on the front and a 48MP shooter on the rear. More details about the upcoming phone are starting to surface as an image of the handset was officially posted by the company online. The image reveals the design element of the Mi CC9's rear panel and the rear camera setup. Additionally, some images of its retail box were leaked online and the company quickly followed up by officially releasing the same images.
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun shared an image of the upcoming Mi CC9 handset on Weibo. The smartphone is seen in a white colour called ‘White Lovers,’ and features a glossy pearl-white finish on the rear panel that looks similar to the White colour model of the Huawei P30 Pro. The images reveal a vertically aligned triple-rear camera setup on the back, one of which is confirmed to feature a 48MP sensor. The rear panel can be seen featuring a gradient design and the glass is slightly curved on all four sides. On the bottom is a Type-C port and a 3.5mm jack. The SIM tray sits on the device’s top edge.
As mentioned earlier, images of the handset’s retail box were also posted online. Xiaomi is aiming the phone at the youth and that is reflected in the graphics of the phone’s box. It is colourful and sports the ‘Chic’ and ‘Cool’ keywords associated with the new series. However, it doesn’t reveal any new details about the upcoming Mi CC9 smartphone.
Alongside the Mi CC9, Xiaomi will also announce the Mi CC9e, which is speculated to be a less powerful version of the handset. A leaked image of the handset suggests that there might be a flip camera module on the device, similar to the one we have seen on the Asus 6Z.
