Xiaomi presented the Xiaomi CC9 and CC9e last July in China. The second of them, more modest, came as the Xiaomi Mi A3 that we were looking forward to and that finally ended up falling short. Now, the most powerful of this Xiaomi CC brand is finally adapted for Spain and the rest of the European market in one more member of the Mi 9 line.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite It is now positioned among the already somewhat confusing catalog of the Chinese manufacturer, which also recently completed with the Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro. It is with the Mi 9T with which we find a greater proximity in price and features, let's see it thoroughly.
Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite, the Mi A3 Pro?
The Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite It comes with a 6.4-inch screen, identical in size to the Xiaomi reference for this season, and somewhat higher than the Mi A3. Again repeat resolution and panel type, in FullHD + and OLED.
Inside we find a Snapdragon 710, a processor that left very good feelings when it began to be used last year, but that was already renewed by the Snapdragon 730 this year. We are not therefore facing a pointer chip but competent, in a semi-high range, and that comes accompanied by a generous 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal memory.
In its design we do find differences with the current Mi 9T, especially considering that they have a motorized front camera that appears only when we need to use it. In return, this recovers the notch characteristic of so many mobiles in 2019, in the form of a drop, equipped with a 32 MP sensor.
In its set of main cameras we see again the 48 MP sensor, along with a wide-angle 8 MP and 2 MP depth sensor to help in portrait mode.
This sort of 'Mi A3 Pro' failed forget Android One and arrives with the personalization layer of Xiaomi in its latest version: MIUI 10 about Android 9 Pie. A movement already expected for a Xiaomi that seems to be pushing the most advanced users towards its own ecosystem.
