The AnTuTu benchmark score of the Mi 9 is higher than that of the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT (it scored 368,480 points), which is the first smartphone in the world to be unveiled with the Snapdragon 855 SoC. The AnTuTu score of the Xiaomi Mi 9 is also higher than the leaked AnTuTu score of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone (it scored 326,185 points), which is expected to be powered by either Exynos 9820 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC depending upon the region. As far as the AnTuTu scores are concerned, it looks like the Xiaomi Mi 9 is leading the chart.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 is expected to make its international debut on 20th February in Spain during the MWC 2019 event. The device is expected to go on sale in China first and then in the other regions. Xiaomi has not yet revealed in which countries will it launch the Mi 9. However, the rumor has it that India will be one of the countries where the Mi 9 will land. So far, Xiaomi has teased the Mi 9 a couple of times revealing the design of the device, and also that it will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and a triple-camera setup on the back. The device has also been leaked a number of times, revealing its unannounced features. Let us have a look at them.
Xiaomi Mi 9 Leaked, Rumored, and Expected Specifications
The Xiaomi Mi 9 will undoubtedly come with a bezel-less display. However, there is no information whether the display will have a notch or a punch-hole, or will it be completely free of notches and punch-holes like the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. There is also no information on the display size. However, looking at the track record, all the flagship Mi series devices have had a small screen size to keep the device compact, and therefore, my speculation is that the Mi 9 will not have a display larger than 6-inches.
Xiaomi has already revealed a picture of the Mi 9 that shows it will have a triple-camera setup. So far, there is no information on the configuration of this triple-camera setup or even the resolution of the camera sensors. However, the rumor has it that the Mi 9 will have a 48MP, a 3D ToF camera, and an ultra-wide camera on the back.
As revealed by the brand itself, the Xiaomi Mi 9 will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. In my opinion, Xiaomi could offer the Mi 9 is three configurations. The base variant might have 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, the middle variant could pack 10GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and the costliest version might feature 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
There is no information about the battery capacity of the Mi 9. However, rumors suggest that the device will have 27W fast charging.
