Hello, Mi fans. The Xiaomi 9 Se looks like one of the most affordable flagship smart phones of the year, offering the most advanced Snapdragon 855 chipset and many other extra privileges. But the company also released a more affordable smart phone and today we will introduce you Mi 9 SE.

Xiaomii Mi store 8 SE is very powerful at launch, offering the Snapdragon 710 chipset, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of fixed storage. But those who expect large-scale power upgrades will be disappointed with the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE specification.

The Mi 9 SE is also using 64GB or 128GB of fixed UFS 2.1 storage compared to the older phone's cheaper and slower eMMC storage. In any event, both devices are about as powerful as you can go without adopting flagship silicon, so you shouldn’t have any issues with demanding apps and multitasking.

Can't stand the notch? Well, both phones offer a display cutout, but the Mi 9 SE definitely has the more subtle option in the water drop notch. Meanwhile, the Mi 8 SE goes for a rather wide cutout.

Fortunately, both phones offer an AMOLED screen, so you're getting vibrant colors, deep blacks, and power saving when using a black/dark theme. The Mi 9 SE features a 5.97-inch display (2,340 x 1,080), while Xiaomi’s 2018 device delivers a 5.88-inch screen (2,244 x 1,080).

Hoping for a Redmi Note-style 4,000mAh battery in the Mi 9 SE? Well, you're actually getting a smaller battery compared to the 2018 device. The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE offers a 3,070mAh battery compared to the Mi 8 SE’s 3,120mAh capacity.

We’d need to get our hands on the Mi 9 SE to put its endurance to the test, but the size discrepancy isn’t big enough to make a major difference in theory. But those looking for better endurance should probably look at the likes of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, thanks to its 4,000mAh pack.

The new phone offers a very flexible triple rear camera combination, featuring a 48MP (Sony IMX 586) main shooter, an 8MP 2x telephoto camera, and a 13MP ultra wide angle snapper. That means you’ve pretty much got a camera for every eventuality.

Meanwhile, the Mi 8 SE has to make do with a 12MP+5MP rear camera pairing. The 5MP secondary shooter is merely a depth sensor, so you’re not getting better zoom or a wider field of view here.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE 64GB features 6GB of RAM across the board, faster storage, triple rear cameras, an in-display fingerprint sensor and NFC. It’s unclear whether the in-display sensor offers long-press shortcuts like the vanilla Mi 9, but it’s certainly a more premium feature than your standard scanner.
