Android version and market relevance

In February 2019 was announced smartphone Xiaomi Mi 9. It is located in the series Xiaomi Mi among many others smartphones Xiaomi.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Xiaomi Mi 9 works on Android 9 Pie, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2019. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Xiaomi Mi 9 updated to version 11.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Xiaomi Mi 9 works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. It so happened that Xiaomi Mi 9 does not have support for fifth-generation networks and cannot provide you with super-fast Internet at a speed of up to 100 Mb/s. If this is important for you, we recommend that you go to the catalog page, which contains all 5G-smartphones on Android.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Xiaomi Mi 9. The body is quite compact and the screen occupies almost all of its area from edge to edge (from 80% to 90% of the area of the case). There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a drop-like cutout for a selfie camera. On the front side of the case is located huge Super AMOLED-screen with diagonal 6.39″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 3 300 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 48 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 16 MP UltraWide and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Xiaomi Mi 9 has one module: 20 MP Wide. And this, of course, is very good. Your selfies will look beautiful and high quality. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone Xiaomi Mi 9 received a 8-core processor Snapdragon 855, RAM 6 GB and built-in memory 64 GB.

Price for Xiaomi Mi 9: buy or not to buy?

Price Xiaomi Mi 9 at the start of sales was $655. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is very cool with a super cool main camera, and you can make very high quality and creative photos with it.

If you want to buy Xiaomi Mi 9, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
