The large screen smartphones are a mainstream in the current smartphone industry. The larger screen size not only brings excellent viewing effect but also is more friendly to interactive experience. However, while the screen of the phone is getting bigger, it is becoming more and more difficult to hold with one hand.
Following the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE last year, the company officially brought a brand new Xiaomi Mi 9 SE at the new product launch conference of the original Xiaomi Mi 9 recently. It still sports a ‘smaller screen’, but it has a very obvious improvement in the overall performance. Let’s take at its enhancements quickly.
Compared to the 6.39-inch large screen that Xiaomi 9 is equipped with, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is relatively restrained in screen size. It features a Samsung AMOLED screen measuring 5.97 inches, which is comparable to the 5.88 inch of the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE.
On the specification parameters, its screen has a 2340 x 1080 resolution, a 432 PPI pixel density, and a NTSC 103.8% wide color gamut, while supporting color AOD off screen display. At the same time, the design of the water drop screen also makes it have a good screen ratio, reaching 90.47%.
Like the Xiaomi Mi 9, the front camera of the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE has a 20-megapixel resolution, it supports AI beauty, front HDR, and face recognition.
The more gratifying thing is that although the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is positioned lower than the Xiaomi Mi 9, it still retains the same fifth-generation screen fingerprinting technology as the latter, and the recognition speed and accuracy are both good.
Thanks to the smaller screen size, the body size of the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is also significantly smaller and lighter than that of Xiaomi Mi 9. According to the official data, its body measurements are 147.5×70.5×7.45mm, and the weight is only 155g. The grip is very good.
In terms of the back cover processing, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE adopts the same holographic color body process as the Xiaomi Mi 9. It can show different colors at different illumination.
The rear camera of the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is slightly inferior to the Xiaomi Mi 9. Its main camera, like the original model, still uses the 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor, with an f/1.75 aperture, but the ultra-wide-angle lens and telephoto lens are changed from 16MP + 12MP to 13MP + 8MP.
For battery life and charging, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE has a battery capacity of 3070mAh and supports 18W wired fast charge. Unfortunately, it does not support wireless charging and 27W wired fast charging on Xiaomi Mi 9.
As for the core hardware configuration, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 platform, with 6GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB two storage options, while providing deep air gray, holographic illusion blue, and holographic illusion purple three color variants.
