Xiaomi has launched the Mi 9 SE in China alongside the flagship Mi 9. The Mi 9 SE is the world's first phone to be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC and offers the same 48 MP camera and in-display fingerprint sensor as the Mi 9. While most other specs are on par, the battery capacity seems somewhat of a downer.

While the Mi 9 was the flagship offering from Xiaomi with an impressive spec sheet, not too far behind is the Mi 9 Special Edition (SE). The Mi 9 SE is is billed to be the world's first phone to be powered by the new Snapdragon 712 SoC that was announced earlier this month. The Snapdragon 712 is slightly overclocked version of the Snapdragon 710 with a 2.3 GHz clock and support for Fast Charging 4+.

The phone has 6 GB of RAM and offers 64 and 128 GB storage options. Like the Mi 9, the Mi 9 SE also features a 48 MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The 48 MP primary camera is accompanied by a 13 MP ultra-wide angle lens and an 8 MP telephoto lens forming a triple camera setup. The 5.97-inch 2,340x1,080 AMOLED screen sports a water drop notch that houses the 20 MP selfie camera.

There is no headphone jack so the only recourse is to use USB Type-C or wireless headphones. MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie is the OS used and it also includes a Game Turbo booster for enhanced gaming performance. A 3,070 mAh battery keeps things chugging along — the capacity is not that great but the phone does support fast charging via the 18W charger.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE will be available in Blue, Violet, and Black colors similar to the Mi 9 at prices starting from ¥1,999 (US$300) to ¥2,299 (US$340). Details of pricing and availability in other regions are yet to be announced.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
