Xiaomi today announced on Weibo that it will be launching the Mi CC9 Pro at an event in China on November 5. Along with the Mi CC9 Pro, the Chinese brand will also unveil new smartwatches and a new Xiaomi TV 5 at the same event.
As confirmed by the official poster shared on Weibo by Xiaomi, the Mi CC9 Pro will come equipped with a penta-camera setup at the rear with a 108MP primary sensor. The smartphone will also have 5X optical zoom, which is again something that we haven’t seen from Xiaomi yet. To show just how much detail the 108MP sensor can capture, Xiaomi has also shared a 0.8% partial enlargement of a photo captured by the Mi CC9 Pro.
While the camera hardware on the Mi CC9 Pro will be extremely impressive, it isn’t expected to be a flagship-grade device. Rumors suggest the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset under the hood, paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage. It is also expected to have a 13MP secondary ultrawide camera and an 8MP telephoto lens at the back. At the front could be a 32MP selfie camera, just like the Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e smartphones that were launched earlier. In the software department, rumors suggest the Mi CC9 Pro will ship with Android 10-based MIUI 11 right out of the box.
In addition to its first 108MP camera smartphone, the company is also likely to unveil its first smartwatch running on the Wear OS platform at the event. Unfortunately, there are no details available currently on the key features or specifications of the upcoming smartwatch. The same goes for the Mi TV 5 series.
