“Xiaomi CC9 and CC9 smartphones will reportedly pack AMOLED display, in-display fingerprint sensor, and triple rear cameras”
Last week, Xiaomi announced a new smartphone series called CC, though there was no mention of any particular model or when it would be launched. Now, the brand in a Weibo post has announced that the first Xiaomi CC series smartphones will be launched on July 2nd. Along with that, the specifications of Xiaomi CC9 and CC9e smartphones have been leaked in their entirety, showing the two handsets will be mid-range devices. Moreover, the prices of the variants of the two Xiaomi CC9 series smartphones have been revealed too thanks to the leak. This comes soon after the first live image of the CC9 handset leaked online, revealing an all-screen front panel.
In a Weibo post, the official Mi account said the company plans to launch the first Xiaomi CC series smartphones at 7pm on July 2nd. The event will be held in Beijing, but the official names of the phones that will be unveiled hasn’t been revealed yet. To recall, the brand last week said CC stands for ‘Colourful and Creative’ and is aimed at the youth. We can expect multiple colour options and unique designs on the handsets. In fact, the first leaked teaser poster had revealed a device with flip camera module, similar to what we have seen on the ASUS 6Z in the past.
