Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition Ties with Huawei Mate 30 Pro in DxOMark Camera Rating


Xiaomi has finally taken the wraps off its latest camera monster – the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro. The device has a whopping 108MP primary sensor which is one of its prime highlights. As if the company wasn’t satisfied enough with it, it has also launched a Premium Edition of the Mi CC9 Pro that has an 8P lens in front of the 108MP 1/1.33” sensor (the standard edition has a 7P lens instead). To make things even better, DxOMark has given the camera of the Mi CC9 Pro (Premium Edition) a staggering score of 121 which is equal to the Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

It is worth noticing that though the CC9 Pro Premium Edition’s overall score is equal to the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, it still falls a tad bit short when it comes to the stills (130 versus 132 for the Mate 30 Pro). In videos, on the other hand, it trumps the latter with a score of 102 (versus 100 for the Mate 30 Pro).

Clearly, the Mi CC9 Pro is going to be one of the best camera-centric smartphones that have got launched lately. Add to this the fact that it is kept at a pretty aggressive price as the base variant comes with a price tag of just Yuan 2799.

It’s surprising to see Xiaomi come up with a camera beast in such a short time as the original Mi CC9 lineup of smartphones was not launched too long ago.
