We are hearing a lot about Xiaomi’s upcoming smartphone in it’s new CC series, the Mi CC9 Pro. If you recall Xiaomi launched this new CC series few months back with Mi CC9 and Mi CC9E. This series is aimed for camera and styling, without compromising on performance and other aspects of a smartphone. Now as teased earlier, Xiaomi unveiled the latest Mi CC9 Pro smartphone with a 108MP camera today. So without further ado, let’s have a look at the specifications of this device.
Design & Display:
Starting off with the design, it’s a glass built from front and back, along with aluminium frame around to hold the glass together. There are curved edges around and a waterdrop notch above the display. Speaking about the display, the Mi CC9 Pro sports a 6.47 inch Super AMOLED display qith Full HD+ (2340×1080) resolution and 398 pixel density (ppi). It’s a HDR10 display along with DCI-P3 colours and 600 nits of brightness. The screen to body ratio is 87.8%, which is good but we are expecting 90% ratio. Also, there’s no mention of any sort of protection in both front as well as back glass.
Now let’s talk about the highlight of Mi CC9 Pro i.e. it’s five camera setup. The primary one is the 108MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor with f1.7 aperture, 0.8μm pixel size, PDAF, and OIS. Then the secondary camera is a 5MP Telephoto lens with 5X digital zoom which goes all the way till 50X via digital zoom. This one has f2.0 aperture, 1.0μm pixel size, PDAF, and OIS. Interestingly, the third camera is also a Telephoto lens. This is a 12MP lens with 2X optical zoom, f2.0 aperture, 1.4μm pixel size, dual pixel PDAF, and OIS. It functions as a depth sensor for portrait shots.
Then the fourth camera is a 20MP Wide Angle lens with f2.2 aperture, 117° field of view, and 1.0μ pixel size. Lastly the fifth one is a 2MP Macro lens with f2.4 aperture and large 1.75μm pixel size. Laser Autofocus is also present here. And there’s a 8P lens in the primary camera of a special edition Mi CC9 Pro. There are two dual LED flashlights i.e. total four flashlights. It can record videos up to 4K at 30fps and 720p slow motion at 960fps. Sadly there’s no 4K at 60fps option. On the front, it has 32MP camera with f2.0 aperture and 0.8μ pixel size. It can do video recording up to 1080p at 30fps.

So that’s all the information we have as of now. Personally I think that for portraits Xiaomi has done a good job by giving another Telephoto lens. They could have given a depth sensor but in reality that’s a gimmick. Overall I like this smartphone by as it’s the Pro, a flagship Snapdragon 855 Plus or even Snapdragon 855 should be better. But still the Snapdragon 730G is very powerful processor. Well, what are your thoughts on this Mi CC9 Pro? Let us know in the comment section below. Also stay tuned with us for more information.
