Xiaomi has announced a new member to the Mi 9 family in Malaysia; the Mi 9 Lite. With a 32MP front camera and 48MP rear camera equipped, the Mi 9 Lite is designed to deliver an exceptional photography experience that the younger generations crave. It also comes with a fast in-screen fingerprint sensor and a large 4030mAh battery.
The Mi 9 Lite is all about the Instagram generation, with a a top-notch triple camera setup with 48MP flagship main lens and a large 1/2” sensor for super clear 48MP ultra-high resolution day shots. It also uses 1.6μm 4-in-1 Super Pixel to capture more light for bright night shots. For the front camera, the device uses a 32MP flagship sensor and merges four pixels to form large 1.6μm pixels and ultimately capture more details in low-light conditions. The device’s front camera supports palm shutter, as well as panorama selfies, by merging three selfie photos in one to fit even more people in a group photo.
The Mi 9 Lite comes in three colours: Pearl White, Aurora Blue and Onyx Black. The device uses a curved Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 back. The new series also makes use of Mi 9’s 6.39-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and 91% screen-to-body ratio and is equipped with in-screen fingerprint sensor technologies – with faster unlock speed and a higher recognition rate – as well as low-blue-light eye protection certification by Germany’s VDE Testing and Certification Institute. Mi 9 Lite also protects your eyes with Reading mode 2.0, and features hardware DC brightness control which reduces eye strain and ensures color retention, while eliminating flickering under a low-light environment.
Weighing at 179g, the Mi 9 Lite packs a high capacity 4030mAh battery combined with power-saving features to accommodate up to two days of regular usage. It supports 18W fast charge which can charge from zero to 43% in just 30 minutes, with the fast charge adapter included in-box. The device is also equipped with multi-functional NFC, Hi-res audio, 3.5mm headphone jack, and an IR blaster.
Packed with a Snapdragon 710 mobile platform, the Mi 9 Lite offers fast speed and excellent performance and even supports up to 256GB expandable SD storage to ensure you have enough storage space for your favorite snaps.
