Xiaomi launched the Mi 9 series a few weeks away, and the company aims to sell more than 1 million units before the end of March.
The Mi 9 series has the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE and the Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer Edition models. The 8 GB RAM and 256GB variant of the Mi 9 EE has not appeared on the shelves as yet. Xiaomi’s Product Director Tang Weng Thomas has stated that the device ‘will become available in stores in late March. So those who have been waiting for this version can get their hands on it in a couple of weeks.’
The Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer Edition is the world’s first mass-produced 12GB memory smartphone, and the company had stated that there will be no 8GB +256GB variant of this handset. But now the company has issued a statement, saying they had decided to release this version as well.
The Mi 9 Explorer Edition has a 6.39-inch Samsung OLED display with FHD+ resolution and has a small water-drop notch on the top with an optical in-display fingerprint sensor. Under the hood, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC.
The phone uses a 7P lens with an f/1.47 large aperture and has a full-surface transparent body design. The Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer Edition will have a custom theme of Battle Angel: Alita. The rest of the features of the device are identical to the regular variant. The 12GB+256GB model costs approx. 3999 yuan ($594), however, there is no information about how much the 8GB +256GB variant will be priced at. With the phones' launch coming nearer we should know more details soon!
