Mi 8 by Xiaomi was one of the most affordable flagship phones released in China, but sadly did not come to many regions outside of China. However, that might not be the case with the Xiaomi Mi 9 as the handset has passed certification at IMDA in Singapore. The Info-communications Media Development Authority has certified a model number M1901F1G with the exact moniker – Mi 9.
A similar model M1902F1A/T also received certification at CCC (3C) in China which hints that the one just certified in Singapore is indeed a global variant of the same device. The Mi 9 has not even been announced in China but it has already appeared on third party websites that gives Xiaomi fans a ray of hope about its global debut later this year.
Sadly, the IMDA certification doesn’t reveal anything of the device specifications usually. However, being a flagship, we can expect the very best cutting-edge that Xiaomi always delivers with its flagships. Leaked renders have so far revealed a triple camera setup, a smaller notch design, and even an on-screen fingerprint reader to come with the unreleased handset. The device is expected to come with true 48 MP cameras and Android 9.0 pie with a slice of MIUI 11 on top.
Few rumours also States that Xiaomi might announce this device in the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event , which is happening in two weeks.
