The Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro is the newest smartphone that has been confirmed to have a 108MP sensor. There have been multiple phone leaks, but there has been no official confirmation until today.
Xiaomi’s official Weibo account posted the first teaser for the upcoming phone today. Depending on the teaser caption, the product might potentially be launched tomorrow.
The caption reads, “More than a hundred million, Xiaomi’s new machine, C you tomorrow morning,” when translated. It is easy to deduce that it points to the CC9 Pro and its 108MP primary sensor.
The phone will be made official at 10 AM (CST), revealed another Weibo post from the company’s Director of New Media.

We can expect Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730G, built on the 8nm process, to power the CC9 Pro. Now, at the front, the phone may house Samsung’s GD1 32-MegaPixel sensor. And, at the rear, the device will feature a triple camera array. That includes Samsung’s newest 108-MegaPixel sensor. Accompanying that humongous sensor is a super-wide 13-megapixel lens and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens.
Also note, that the phone might not feature any Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The phone is also expected to house a 4000mAh battery, which is somewhat the industry-norm now. Coupled with the modestly sized battery, is 27W Fast Charging support. It is also rumored that Xiaomi may provide support for 20W Wireless Fast Charging. Moreover, some previous leaks also revealed details like an IR Blaster, NFC support, 9mm thick body, Android 10 support, and 180g weight.
Another leak also revealed that the phone will feature Gorilla Glass 6 at the front and Gorilla Glass 5 at the back. It further mentions support for Wireless Fast Charging and two other variants.
