Xiaomi has been teasing the idea for a several months now, and it’s finally right here: the CC9 Professional, the company’s 1st smartphone with a 108-megapixel digital camera.
Prior to you get much too energized, this isn’t the brain-blowing wraparound-monitor Mi Blend Alpha that the enterprise showed off before this year, which Xiaomi guarantees will also attribute the 108-megapixel sensor. (That cell phone is presumably however set for a minimal release in December, even though.)
The CC9 Pro is a far more conventionally developed cellular phone by comparison, whilst it still managed to pack in 5 rear cameras: the aforementioned flagship 108-megapixel large angle lens, a 5-megapixel telephoto with 5x optical zoom (and 10x hybrid zoom), a 12-megapixel telephoto digicam built for portrait manner photographs, a 20-megapixel extremely-wide with a 117-diploma industry of look at, and a two-megapixel macro lens for shut-up pictures. There is also a sixth 32-megapixel digital camera on the entrance of the cellular phone, which is housed in a teardrop-design and style notch.
The 108-megapixel sensor in query is the very same Samsung ISOCELL Shiny HMX that the company built with each other with Xiaomi, which was announced previously this calendar year. The one/1.33-inch sensor is unusually substantial (for a phone, at the very least). By default, it’ll shoot 27-megapixel pictures that mix four pixels alongside one another, as is rather normal on ultra-higher megapixel-rely smartphones. There is an selection to shoot in the full 108-megapixel resolution ought to you want to.
Wild digicam specs aside, the rest of the CC9 Pro sounds like a quite proficient cellphone, with a five,260mAh battery, a curved six.47-inch AMOLED display screen with an in-display screen fingerprint sensor, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730G processor. It even has a three.5mm headphone jack. On the software package side, it’ll operate Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 pores and skin on top rated of very last year’s Android nine Pie.
The Xiaomi Mi CC9 Professional will price tag two,799 yuan (around $400) for the foundation design, with 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, or 3,099 yuan (roughly $443) for an upgraded model with 126GB of storage and 8GB RAM. In usual Xiaomi type, there is also a CC9 Pro Premium Edition variant that will value three,499 yuan (all-around $500) with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage and an upgraded “8P lens system” for the primary 108-megapixel camera.
The CC9 Professional goes on sale in China tomorrow, but there is no word however about a bigger international launch.
