A few months ago Xiaomi surprised us by presenting the Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha , a conceptual device that was called to show the company’s progress with flexible, non-folding screens. Given its bizarre design, it went unnoticed that its main photo sensor was 108 Mpx, being the first mobile in the world to have it.
The point was that, despite that, we could not buy it since this model, at least for now, would not go on sale.
This is what Xiaomi wants to solve with the new Xiaomi CC9 Pro, a device that has been confirmed thanks to a publication of the company itself in the Chinese social network weibo.
108 Mpx and 5x zoom
In the published image we see the back of this mobile, which has four sensors among which the main one, 108 Mpx, and one of the secondary ones that promises us a 5x optical zoom, which we have only seen for now on the Huawei P30 Pro.
The latter, however, is striking. If you look, there is no periscope system in the terminal (it is seen because there is no square element in the rear sensors). This would mean that if Xiaomi has implemented a 5x optical zoom without a periscope, it would be the first to be able to do it without having an excessively thick mobile.
Along with that we will have no less than three more sensors, making a total of 5. It is likely that one is a wide angle (hopefully 16 Mpx), that the small one is a ToF and that the last one is a macro sensor since with The Tof the RGB depth sensor does not make much sense ..
A new clock and a new TV
Together with the Xiaomi CC9 Pro, the company has confirmed that there will be a new watch, from its subsidiary Mijia, and that it is possible that it is the rumored Xiaomi Mi Watch with Wear OS, but the teaser’s image does not confirm anything, beyond its design rectangular.
There will also be a new television, the Xiaomi Mi TV 5 , that hopefully will be the prelude to the presentation in Europe of this type of products.
All these products will be announced at an event in China on November 5, but we don’t know if they will cross their borders.
