China-based Xiaomi will launch a new smartphone series in its home country tomorrow, which will focus more on front-facing cameras and target user-friendly users. This phone will be launched in cooperation with Meitu.
For those who didn’t realize it, Xiaomi acquired the hardware business of China’s smartphone maker Meitu in March last year to manufacture and sell self-portrait-centric mobile phones.
The company shared a new trailer poster online. To this end, Xiaomi’s founder and CEO Lei Jun thanked them for using the phone and confirmed that they will launch a new smartphone series in China tomorrow.
Before the launch, the posters were leaked online, revealing the first smartphone jointly developed by the two companies. It shows a Mito brand smartphone with a flip camera similar to the ASUS Zenfone 6 / ASUS 6z. However, unlike the ASUS phone, this phone is equipped with a larger module because there are three camera sensors on the flip module.
Although the camera specifications are not clear, it is said that the main camera sensor will be 480,000 pixels, probably the Sony IMX568 sensor. As for the design of the device, the phone has a pink gradient surface, and the welded side and pink buttons are located on the right frame. This suggests that the company’s goal is for female users.
The smartphone, code-named “Little Fairy,” is considered a leaked Mi CC9. The TENAA list of Mi CC9 shows that the phone will be equipped with an AMOLED display with a display fingerprint reader and powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 eight-core chipset.
