Xiaomi Mi 9: 48-megapixel camera

Xiaomi Mi 9's triple-camera setup at the rear features a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor paired with a telephoto lens, and an ultra-wide angle lens. Xiaomi Mi 9 also supports slow motion video recording up to 960 fps. There's also a 'Super Night Scene' mode which is expected to enhance low-light photography.

Xiaomi Mi 9: Transparent back

Similar to last year's Mi 8, the Explorer Edition of Mi 9 also features a transparent back. However unlike the Mi 8's real transparent panel, the Mi 9 has a fake one. The transparent panel on the Mi 9 is a 0.3mm aluminum sheet which shows a PCB including a dummy chipset and circuits.

Xiaomi Mi 9 will ship with MIUI 10.2 based on Android 9 Pie. The latest MIUI on Mi 9 brings dark mode on the smartphone. Dark mode on smartphones can save battery life even with maximum brightness by up to 63% on OLED panels. Google is also expected to release in-built dark mode on Android Q later this year.

Xiaomi Mi 9: Design

Xiaomi continues the gradient colour design with the Mi 9 but in a more refined way. The smartphone comes in three colour options of 'Lavender Violet', 'Ocean Blue' and 'Piano Black'. Mi 9 also has a 'S' curve effect on its rear panel when viewed with different angles.
