After several weeks of waiting we can finally announce that the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G it's official. This device has just been presented at an event held in China by the company itself. We already knew many of its details, which, we can officially confirm. It comes as an improved version of My original 9, a device presented in February of this year. His last name not only complies with the word ‘Pro’, but also with the striking ‘5G’. These last acronyms make us clear the intention of Xiaomi with this new device: have another terminal that can be connect to 5G networks.
These networks are not present in all markets, but little by little the network is taking shape in countries like Spain, South Korea or China. There are several points of the terminal that do not improve, but many others do, polishing some of the most criticized sections of the original Mi 9.
Design of the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G
The design of this device has few differences from the previous Mi 9. The first and one of the few differences we found is in the front of the terminal. Your notch is now a bit more cutting and it does not have the form of water drop. It is a minor change that many users will not appreciate, but that is there.
The rest of the device is practically identical to the Xiaomi Mi 9 presented in February. The main news and The surname Pro ’earns it thanks to the internal characteristics, which, yes they have improved.
Features of Xiaomi Mi9 Pro 5G
This section is where we see the main differences between the devices. One of the few things that does not change is the panel, as this still the same size and resolution. The rest of the components level up to leave us with a more updated device.
- 6.4-inch AMOLED display in FullHD + resolution
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor
- 8 or 12 GB of RAM

- Metal and glass body
- 5G connectivity
- USB C, fingerprint sensor and NFC
- 4,000 mAh battery with fast charge (40W)

If we compare both lists of features we can see that in almost all points this device improves. Is more powerful, it has a huge amount of RAM, a much wider storage and a much more advanced fast load. Other details such as the camera or the screen have not improved.
We must make special mention of its battery, because not only has it increased in size, but now it charges much faster. Xiaomi has included a 40W wired and 30W charge in case you want to charge it wirelessly. These are two very interesting facts that will give the device some more life. One of the problems of the original Mi 9 was its autonomy.
Price and availability of the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G
The device already has prices for China in its different versions. To see it in Spain we will have to wait for the division in our country to rule on the device. It is likely that it will end up arriving, as Spain is one of the first countries in the world to adopt 5G technology in its commercial networks.
