Xiaomi Mi 9 hands-on

Phones
[MUSIC] Hey guys, in my hands right now is the new Xiao Mi Mi 9. Now, as you can see, they come in really nice colors, and if you're outside of China you're gonna get your hands on these a lot sooner than you could before. The first thing that you'll notice about the Xiao Mi Mi 9 are the colors. There are three colors that will be available globally. There's a blue, a purple, and a black. Yes, there are three cameras on the back. The main camera can take pictures up to 48 megapixels in size. However, Xiaomi says the phone will use its AI to put together a very clean and sharp 12 megapixel image by default. If conditions are right, the Mi 9 can take a full 48 megapixel picture if you want. One of the rare camera shoot ultra wide pictures, Sharman says it uses it software to correct for wide angle distortion, unfortunately we didn't get to test that out in our hands on. On the front, you'll find a 20 mega pixel of front facing camera, to unlock?, you can use the in screen fingerprint sensor, for my short time with the phone, the sensor was very responsive. The phone is very light and feels sturdy in the hand. The Mi 9 is using Xiaomi's MIUI software on top of Android 9 Pie. You won't find an app drawer here. Instead, it's kind of like iOS with icons right on the home screen. To access your already running apps, you'll have to use a gesture. Slowly swipe up, and you can access an app switcher. Everything felt plenty snappy going from app to app, and that's probably because of the internals. Inside you'll find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. In tests, the 855 performed up to 45% faster than last years model, the Snapdragon 845. The global edition of Xiaomi Mi 9 will shop with six gigabytes of RAM. There are two storage options at 64 gigs or 128 gigabytes of internal space. There is no expandability though. There is a fourth model that will be available in China only, it's a Xiaomi Mi 9 9 special transparent edition. It's similar to the Meet H Pro, in that there's a back that shows a representation of the internal components. You're not really getting a look into the phone. This beast will come with 12 gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigs of storage. All the models support Chi wireless charging, as well as Xiao Mi's charge turbo feature. feature Xiaomi showed us two wireless charges that support charts turbo a pad and a car duck they are capable of charging a mean nine at 20 watts to put that another way Xiaomi says you'll be able to take a mean nine from dead to 100% charge in one hour and 40 minutes wirelessly Play. This is the Shell Mimi Nine we'll have full reviews at Cnet.com. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
