This summer Xiaomi premiered the new CC series of mobiles with the Xiaomi CC9 and CC9e. At that time we did not know the final availability of these products, and today the brand announces that the Xiaomi CC9 goes on the international market as the new Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite.
In this way, of this new family of mobiles that was born after the purchase of Meitu by Xiaomi (after this other Chinese company stopped manufacturing its own phones), it goes to the international market by fitting into other ranges already more established in the company like the Mi and the A. In this case it goes on to expand the Mi 9 being a more basic proposal and fitting in the middle range.

The fingerprint reader on the screen and a multi-colored back
Rear clear and with multicolored reflections for this new member of the Mi 9 family, while being a striking and clear back. This is partly because the fingerprint reader is integrated into the screen , which it has in common with the Xiaomi Mi 9T (also mid-range).
On the front we see that the subjective camera that we will now talk about is surrounded by a drop-shaped notch and that the screen is very protagonist. The brand speaks of a 91% use of the front by the screen (85.8% in GSM Arena), which would be higher than what we saw in the Xiaomi Mi A3 (with Android One and without MIUI).
The screen is 6.39 inches and AMOLED type, being diagonal and higher resolution than the Mi A3, talking about FullHD + resolution, with 600 nits of maximum brightness a contrast ratio of 60,000: 1 and 103.8% of the NTSC color spectrum. A panel protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
6 GB of RAM for this midrange
Just as the Mi A3 premiered the Snapdragon 665, the Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite integrates one already known but from the 700 series, the Snapdragon 710, which is somewhat more powerful than the first. The RAM available for this mobile is 6 GB, which to be a mid-range is not bad, there are two options in terms of storage (64 and 128 GB, and up to 256 GB expanding with microSD).
In this case the software that accompanies the phone is MIUI in its version 10, the software layer of the company. The battery is 4,030 milliamps / hour, with fast charging of 18 watts, and also comes with Hi-Res sound and 3.5 mm minijack.
As for the cameras, this Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite points to the triple camera with its most fashionable combination with a standard lens, a wide angle and a telephoto . The main one integrates a sensor of 48 megapixels (1.6 micrometers per pixel) for the first, the one that also takes on some prominence is that of the front camera being 32 megapixels.
For the ultra-wide-angle camera we see an 8 megapixel sensor, integrating a 118-degree wide lens, and the third sensor at the rear is 2 megapixels, with a f / 2.4 aperture lens. All of them helped by artificial intelligence, also releasing new effects to improve photographs by changing skies and other aspects.
