Complying with the warning, with the very, very warned, Xiaomi has officially presented its first flagship of 2019: the Xiaomi Mi 9. A mobile that has been showing from your Twitter account, highlighting some of its characteristics and differences with respect to its predecessors.


The Mi 9 integrates fingerprint reader on screen, leaving behind what we saw in the Xiaomi my 8 but inheriting what I did introduce the Xiaomi my Pro. Drop-shaped Notch, the latest Qualcomm processor and three cameras on the back.

A better-used frontal and a holographic rear

The battle for the use of the frontal did nothing but start, and although we do not see perforated screens in the mobiles of Xiaomi (so far) what has been reduced is the notch of your standard flagship. The drop-shaped notch is installed surrounded by that Super AMOLED panel with 6.39-inch resolution FullHD + (1,080 x 2,280 pixels), with 60,000 contrast ratio: 1 and Gorilla Glass 6 on it.


It promises to be at the height in a matter of brightness, with a maximum brightness of 600 nits and a mode reminiscent of the super brightness mode that we have seen in the LG range stoppers like the LG G7 ThinQ, increasing in this case the brightness by 39%. The display also has a Sunlight 2.0 mode that optimizes color and contrast when outdoors.


As we said, the fingerprint reader is inserted on the screen, so the rear is dedicated to the camera module that we will now see. According to the manufacturer, the use of the frontal reaches exceeding 90%, although this data always depends on how it is measured.


As for design, the back of this mobile also shows a gradient (holographic, as they call it) of color as we have seen on mobile as the HONOR View20. Without a 3.5 millimeter jack and with that curved back that characterizes it.


What inherits from the Xiaomi my MIX 3 is a button dedicated to the virtual assistant. Thus, the brand bets on that option that we have also seen on Samsung phones and allows you to call the wizard in a single touch (you will have to see the configuration offered by MIUI in this regard).

Not missing power

The new flagship enters through the big door with the latest Qualcomm processor for the high end, the Snapdragon 855, accompanied by 6 or 8 GB of RAM thus offering two configurations. All this is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery, offering a 27 watt fast charge, which after testing on the bike G7 Plus promises very fast loads (in one hour, according to the manufacturer). It also has a 20-watt wireless charge.


As for the connectivity, the Xiaomi my 9 has support to 4x4 MIMO and HPUE, and according to the manufacturer will always search automatically the best wifi connection by changing antenna for it. In the base we see the USB type C, without being accompanied by the audio jack of 3.5 millimeters.

Renovation also for MIUI

We have talked about some sections of the software in reference to the screen, but MIUI launches some news with this new Mi 9. One of them is the dark theme, which according to the manufacturer reduces consumption by up to 83% in maximum brightness and up to 50% in brightness in half.


Thus, there is a more aesthetic option for those users who prefer dark tones for the interfaces of MIUI, or want an option that involves a lower energy expenditure on the part of the screen. There are also dynamic wallpapers that change during the day in a similar way to what we have seen in the Google Pixel, and an ambient screen that promises to be more customizable.

Three rear cameras: 48 megapixel, wide-angle and optical zoom

There is the triple camera car, with examples like the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018, and the 48 megapixel sensors that we are seeing on mobile as that HONOR View20. The two have been uploaded Xiaomi with the Mi 9, which integrates triple rear camera with a 48 megapixel main sensor and artificial intelligence assistance.


This main camera mounts an F/1.8 aperture lens, with a sensor pixel size of 0.8 micrometers. As Escuderas features a 16 megapixel wide-angle lens with an F/2.2 aperture lens and a 12 megapixel telephoto, so Xiaomi bets with its triple lens to get the best performance on zoomed pictures and without missing anything for a frame more Reduced, and some samples can be seen in the analysis of DXOMark, where they give a score of 107.

Versions and prices of Xiaomi Mi 9

The new Xiaomi my 9 will arrive in Spain on February 28th, being able to book them now. They will have a price of 449 euros for the model of 6 GB + 64 GB and of 499 euros for the model of 8 GB + 128 GB.
