The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE has everything you need!
Richly equipped, the MI 9 SE displays a quality-price ratio difficult to catch in default. Compact, versatile and rather light, this Android smartphone is a good compromise for everyday use without denying the quality of photos.
After having marked the minds with its Mi 9 , Xiaomi introduced its new mid-range smartphone , the Mi 9 SE. If his big brother is more likely to compete with the flagship, like the iPhone X or the Samsung Galaxy S10 – while being much cheaper– the Mi 9 SE is closer to economic versions, the iPhone XR or the Samsung Galaxy S10E, with a small compromise on the power, largely offset by the price.
This new Android smartphone is marked SE as ” small edition “, a more compact version of Mi 9. The Super Amoled screen is 5.97 inches diagonally with a Full HD + definition of 2.340 x 1.080 pixels , which is still 432 ppp, and occupies 90.47% of the front panel. The front camera is nestled in a drop- shaped notch , while an optical fingerprint reader is integrated directly into the screen.
A triple photo module
The Mi 9 SE ships 6 GB of RAM , and 64 or 128 gigabytes of storage. Attention, the memory is not extensible, Xiaomi has not integrated a microSD port, and it is a weak point. In addition to the size of the screen, the main difference between the Mi 9 SE and its big brother is at the processor , which is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 (against a Snapdragon 855). This difference will be felt mainly in games, not really in everyday use.
Side camera, the Mi 9 SE embarks a triple photo module very close to that of the Mi 9. First, a main lens of 48 megapixels with an opening at f / 1.8. Like most sensors of this type, he practices pixel binning, which is to combine in batches of four to create a 12 megapixel photo of superior quality. Its second objective is a 13-megapixel ultra-wide angle module with an aperture at f / 2.4, which captures at 123 ∞.
Finally, the third module is a telephoto 8-megapixel 2.4 aperture, which offers a 2x optical zoom. Note that the Mi 9 SE benefits from the new moon mode of Xiaomi, which allows to photograph the moon with some optimizations. Finally, on the front side, a 20-megapixel selfie camera is nestled in the notch of the screen. Xiaomi boasts the use of artificial intelligence for portrait and beauty mode, including videos.
Several promotions until May 2
Side autonomy, the Mi 9 SE has a 3.070 mAh battery that is charged in USB Type C with the 18 W fast charge. Like many smartphones, the Mi 9 SE does not offer a headphone jack. It will therefore be necessary to use Bluetooth or a USB Type C adapter. The camera has a rather sober glass shell and is available in two colors : ocean blue and black piano.
