Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro (Mi Note 10) Hands-On: You Can't Really Ask For More

Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro is the first commercial smartphone in the world with a 108MP sensor and the second one with a five-camera cluster on the rear.

Launched by Xiaomi on November 5, the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro has become a new phenomenon in the smartphone market as it is the first commercial smartphone in the world to have a 108MP camera, as well as the second smartphone with a penta-camera cluster (Nokia 9 PureView is the first one). For its starting price of around Rs. 28,000, you can't really ask for anything more than this.

At the launch event, Xiaomi focused heavily on the cameras of this smartphone, as well as confidently showing off to users that the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro ranked in the top 1 on the smartphone ranking with the best camera by DxOMark. With 121 points on average (130 points for photography and 102 points for video), the Mi CC9 Pro along with Huawei Mate 30 Pro are in the top position of the DxOMark ranking.

At the moment, Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro hasn’t made its way to the Indian market yet. Therefore, these versions are all Chinese domestic versions, so there is no Google Play app store. If you want to buy this smartphone, you can wait for the launch of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, the international version of Mi CC9 Pro to be available in India to be able to use full features.

The version of Mi CC9 Pro we have today is in Aurora Green color, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There are also two other color options: Glacier White and Midnight Black. Other memory configurations are 6GB RAM / 128GB storage and 8GB RAM / 256GB storage.

The two variants - 6GB RAM / 128GB storage and 8GB RAM / 256GB storage are currently retailed in China at RMB 2,799 (roughly Rs. 28,200) or RMB 3,099 (roughly Rs. 31,200), respectively. The company also releases a Premium Edition that features an 8P lens. It is priced at RMB 3,499 (roughly Rs. 35,300) for 8GB of RAM / 256GB of storage model. For now, we are not sure when Xiaomi will release the handset in India, given the fact that the Xiaomi Mi CC9 that launched way back in July hasn't also made its debut in our market yet. If it indeed arrives in India, it should be announced under the name Xiaomi Mi Note 10 & Note 10 Pro.
