This is what the Xiaomi Mi 9 looks like

The Xiaomi Mi 9 will be making its global debut at Barcelona on the 24th February 2019. Ahead of its big reveal, Xiaomi has dropped a couple of high-resolution photos of the device that comes with a triple-camera setup.

The Mi 9 will feature a 3D glass back design that appears to have a gradient colour effect. From the pictures above, we can see the colours transition from blue to purple to green which is kinda like a mix between the OPPO R17 Pro and Honor’s aurora glass effect. Since there’s no fingerprint sensor at the back, the Mi 9 is expected to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

For taking pictures, the Mi 9 gets a triple-camera setup that’s likely to come with an ultra-wide-angle lens. The camera bump looks quite thick and the top most camera has a unique ring around it.

Looking at the bottom image, the Mi 9 comes with a USB-C port and speaker + microphone grills on both sides. As usual, there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack so you’ll probably need to use a dongle if you plan on using your own headphones.

To recap, the Mi 9 will run on a Snapdragon 855 processor and Xiaomi says this is their most powerful smartphone yet. Since the device will be revealed in China on the 20th of February, we will know he full hardware specs by next Wednesday.

UPDATE: Xiaomi has shared more Mi 9 images on their weibo account. You can click on the images below for a bigger view.
