Xiaomi Mi 9 – flagship specs and astonishing camera at no cost ($439, 15% off)
Tired of looking at the four-digit price tag of modern-day flagships? We are as well! This means the Xiaomi Mi 9 is the right device for you and right now it is on sale, bringing the already low price even further. You can check it out at Gearbest: https://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_009483588063.html
For the 439 bucks, you get a 6.39-inch Full HD+ (1080 x 2340) Super AMOLED display that spreads through the DCI-P3 color gamut and has an HDR10 certification. In a world of ridiculous variously-sized notches, Xiaomi offers you an 85.2% screen to body ratio with a gentle teardrop notch, that houses a 20MP front-facing camera. This really makes the AMOLED screen pop out, without using any useful real estate.
Speaking of the camera, there is the holy trinity of cameras on the back – starting from top to bottom – a magnificent 48MP main shooter, a 12MP telephoto lens that offers 2x optical zoom and a 16MP ultrawide camera. Speaking of the 48MP unit it is truly a beast in the smartphone world as it is able to shoot 4K videos at 60fps, as well as 1080p slow-motion video at rates of 120/240 and the super slow 960 fps.
By the way, the Xiaomi Mi 9 is not a flagship killer at all. This is because it IS a flagship itself. It is equipped with the latest and greatest from Qualcomm – the 7nm Snapdragon 855 (+Adreno 640 GPU) that has a total of eight cores – 1×2.84 GHz Kryo 485, 3x 2.42 GHz Kryo 485 and 4×1.80 GHz of the same design, that are assigned most of the day-to-day tasks to help the battery life. On the memory side, you have the option of 6GB or 8GB of RAM, that comes with 64 and 128GB of storage, respectively.
Of course, in order to have a long battery life, you need a large battery – the 3300 mAh unit on this smartphone is not the biggest you’ll find but it is certainly big enough. Especially when you can top it up with up to 27W, thanks to Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ and with a blazing fast wireless charger of up to 20W.
Last but not least, the Mi 9 comes with Bluetooth 5.0 that supports the aptX HD script for high-fi Bluetooth audio devices. If you are observant enough you would (or more accurately wouldn’t) notice the lack a fingerprint reader. This is because it is hidden underneath the display!
Mi 9 is offered in what Xiaomi gracefully calls Lavender Violet, Ocean Blue, and Piano Black. All of these color variants are currently available at Gearbest: https://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_009483588063.html
