The Xiaomi Mi 9 might cost half as much as the Galaxy S10
The Xiaomi Mi 9 is one pretty impressive device. It packs a bunch of flagship specs paired with a large display and soon it’ll be available across Europe. Xiaomi will announce the phone's official pricing at MWC this weekend but tipster Ishan Agarwal claims to have obtained it ahead of time.

Depending on the market, the Xiaomi Mi 9 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage will apparently cost either €449 or €469 in Europe. That figure is around €100 cheaper than the Snapdragon 845-powered OnePlus 6T and around half the price of the Samsung Galaxy S10, which contains the Snapdragon 855 like the Xiaomi Mi 9.

Aside from this internals, Xiaomi’s latest flagship also offers a new triple-camera setup on the rear. The primary sensor offers an impressive 48-megapixel resolution and f/1.75 aperture that should allow for some pretty good images, even in low-light conditions.

There’s also an improved 12-megapixel telephoto camera and an all-new 16-megapixel sensor which is coupled with a wide-angle lens, thus allowing much more to be captured in a single photograph.

Other features on the Xiaomi Mi 9 include a 6.39-inch AMOLED display, Android 9 Pie, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a 3,300mAh battery. The flagship also supports 20W wireless charging which is currently the fastest on the market.

The release date of the Mi 9 will be announced next week at the company’s MWC press conference this Sunday. Pricing of the more expensive 6/128GB variant is expected to sit in the region of €550.
