Xiaomi has already confirmed the triple rear camera setup on the Mi CC9 series. The setup is likely to use a 48-megapixel main camera and a 32-megapixel selfie camera. As mentioned earlier, we could see up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. A TENAA listing suggested 6.39-inch AMOLED display and an octa-core Snapdragon processor. It will house a 3,940mAh battery and support 27W fast charging. The Mi CC9 could borrow elements of Redmi K20 series for its success.

There is not likely to be much difference between Mi CC 9 and Mi CC 9e. The Mi CC9e might offer a smaller 6.08-inch display. It might come equipped with Snapdragon 710 SoC and the same 3,940mAh battery. It will also have a triple rear camera setup but configuration might be different. The Mi CC9 Meitu Custom Edition will be the most premium device. It will integrate camera features of Meitu smartphones like face and beauty filters.
