We all know that Xiaomi is not a company that stands still, and that leaves several months between one launch and another. When a new model has just arrived, another sounds and so on, on an infinite wheel that remains to be seen how far it takes us. The case is that one of the best mobiles in the price-quality ratio of the Chinese, the Xiaomi CC9 already has a successor. Or so it seems.
And it is that in the last hour’s Evidence of a possible design for that next-generation Xiaomi CC9 has begun to arrive, thanks to one of those infallible sources of leaks that are the cover shops. Places where it is possible to see and confirm, how the design of a terminal will be many months before its presentation. Just remember the latest cases, like the 2020 iPhone SE that arrived just a few weeks ago.
New model on the doorstep
The case is that it has been in a Chinese online store, Taobao, where we have been able to see this that you have right here below. What seems the leak of what will be the design of the next generation of the Xiaomi CC9 and CC9 Pro, with a camera configuration that is most striking. Remember that last year’s model chose to place its sensors of the main camera in a row, one after the other, while in the new generation it will not be like that.
If it is confirmed that we are facing a possible Xiaomi CC10 (or whatever they call it), I would opt for a rhomboid configuration of the four sensors to centre them on the back of the device body. A radical change that would also accompany its front, which as you can see does not even have a notch to house the camera for selfies, or a sensor with a drop of water effect, so there would only be two alternatives: either a retractable module or a camera under the screen, something that would be a real milestone.
Be that as it may, and although on the front it is possible that changes may occur in this design, it is in the back where the covers must conform to their authentic shapes to be compatible, so in this case, as in many others, we are going to stay with that configuration of four sensors in an arrangement that is not, a priori, too attractive. The rest of the features are a mystery except for three elements that already seem to be confirmed: the processor could be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 775G with 5G and 108MP main camera with hybrid 120x zoom and 12x optical.
