Xiaomi Mi 9 was the star of the launch Show earlier in the day, but also appeared another Xiaomi smartphone. Introduced by CEO Lei Junas, the world’s first Snapdragon 712 chipset, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE (Special Edition) features a 48-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX586 sensor on the back and a UD fingerprint scanner on the front.

The Mi 9 SE is slightly smaller than the flagship product. It has a 5.97 cm AMOLED plate with a teardrop-shaped notch at the top and a slightly thicker bezel at the bottom. The Snapdragon 712 chipset is paired with 6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of memory.

Speaking of SoC, it’s about the same as the Snapdragon 710, but with a slightly faster processor. It is still based on the 10 nm FiNFET process and its modem supports all common WLAN standards, Bluetooth 5.0 and dual LTE.

The main shooter has an ultra wide-angle lens of 13 MP and a telephoto lens of 8 MP to keep him company. The front camera is 20 MP and contains many beauty filters for all social network addicts.

The 3.070 mAh battery of the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE charges up quickly, but is limited to 18 W. Since the handset does not have a 3.5mm audio jack, you must trust either the USB-C port or wireless headsets. Other features include the Turbo Game Booster, the latest MIUI 10 and an NFC chip.

Available in the same blue, purple and black colors as the Xiaomi Mi 9, the Mi 9 special edition costs between 1,999 CNY (300/262 USD) and 2,299 CNY (340/300 USD).
