Xiaomi Mi CC9 series with artistic design, moderate specs launched

02 July 2019 0

Xiaomi Mi CC9 series is finally official and it includes three phones in total. There’s a standard CC9, then a CC9e and CC9 Meitu Custom Edition as well. As stated by the company while introducing the new CC series, Xiaomi CC is built by and for young minds. Thoroughly developed by the Chic & Cool 90 Team, the series aims to offer interesting features without compromising on the performance. The series has that Xiaomi’s essence of pulling out maximum at a lesser price compared to others.

As the name of the series implies, the new series is colorful in design and creative in terms of features. While it’s appealing to eyes with the ravishing design aesthetics and vibrant colors, it’s also moderately adequate in terms of the specs. The devices do have different features to offer but they all are primarily focused on providing beautiful selfies with long-lasting batteries.

Mi CC9

Starting with the Mi CC9, the model has an impressive back panel with an interesting light refracting finish which shifts colors when the light hits on it. It houses triple rear cameras with 48MP primary snapper, 8MP ultrawide one, and a 2MP depth sensor. It is powered by the Snapdragon 710 processor paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM with 64GB/128GB/256GB storage options. The device runs on Android Pie with MIUI 10 on top and has 4,030mAH battery. It features 3.5mm headphones jack, NFC and an IR port. It comes with a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 resolution.
