Xiaomi Officially Launches Mi CC9, CC9e And CC9 Meitu Edition

New selfie-focused smartphones

Xiaomi has officially unleashed the first phones in their CC line of devices, in the form of the Mi CC9, CC9e, and CC9 Meitu Edition. These three devices are the first products to be borne out of the company’s acquisition of Meitu and are aimed at the same young and youthful market that former OPPO sub-brand Realme is targeting.

The new phones have funky new colors in dark blue and white gradient color options, with the Mi CC9 leading the pack. The phone sports a 6.39-inch OLED display that has a full HD+ resolution, under-display fingerprint scanner, Snapdragon 710 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of internal storage, and a 4030mAh battery with 18W fast charging.

The main draw for the Mi CC9 is the high-resolution 32-megapixel front camera, which is joined at the rear with a 48-megapixel shooter with an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens and ToF sensor.

Just like what the company did with their Mi 9SE, the Mi CC9e is a smaller version of the CC9. The CC9e has a smaller 6-inch display with HD+ resolution, along with a Snapdragon 665 chipset, and will come in 4GB/64GB flavors and 6GB/128GB variants. Cameras for both stay the same.

The Mi CC9 Meitu edition is just a CC9 with a few camera tweaks done by the Meitu team which Xiaomi acquired late last year.

The tweaks include an AI low-light portrait mode, movie portrait, and full-body beauty filters, along with a special vlog mode with video stabilization. Aside from the device has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, the rest of the hardware is identical to the regular CC9.
