- Mi CC9 will be accompanied by the Mi CC9e at launch
- The Mi CC9 will sport a 32-megapixel selfie camera
- It is rumoured to draw power from Snapdragon 730 SoC
The Xiaomi Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e are roughly a week away from their official launch, but the company is keeping the hype train at full velocity. In the lead up to the July 2 event, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has shared a pair of images revealing the Dark Blue Planet variant of the Mi CC9, and has also posted a short video to highlight its design. The Mi CC9’s Dark Blue Planet edition has a gradient design with a wavy pattern on the rear panel, which looks a bit similar to what we have already seen on the Realme X and Realme 3 Pro.
The Xiaomi co-founder’s Weibo post shows the M 9 CC9’s Dark Blue Planet variant, which flaunts curved streaks of electric blue and purple gradient on a dark blue backdrop. Jun added that achieving the beautiful pattern on the Mi CC9’s rear panel was a tedious process and that it was harder than the work done on the flagship Mi 9.
Xiaomi has already shared images of the Mi CC9’s white gradient variant as well as the retail packaging of the upcoming phone. The company has also confirmed that the phone will sport a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor at the back and a 32-megapixel front camera. More details about the Mi CC9 and its more affordable sibling – the Mi CC9e – will be revealed when the two phones are launched at an event on July 2 in China.
