Phone launches are usually leakier than an Ikea colander, and the release of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro is no exception.
Pictures of the handset, which Xiaomi will formally launch next week, have already been leaked by Chinese regulatory agency TENAA – the country's equivalent of the FCC – showing a handset with five lenses, a curved display and what appears to be a notch.
Reality - Details - Handset - Rumour - Mill
In reality, most of the details pertaining to the handset have already slipped through the mobile rumour mill. We know, for example, that the device will include Samsung's bonkers ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor, which can take daylight photos with a bonkers 108MP resolution.
That's not a typo, by the way. The ISOCELL Bright HMX includes pixels that are just 0.8 microns across – which is roughly on par with the current crop of 48MP and 64MP sensors. This means that the sensor is physically larger than previous efforts, measuring 1/1.33-inches. Compare that with the 48MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor, which measured 1/1.72-inches.
Course - Photograph - User - Phone - Size
Of course, the photograph that gets saved on the user's phone isn't anywhere close to 108MP in size. As is common with ultra-high megapixel cameras, the sensor on the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro uses a technique called "pixel binning", where multiple pixels (usually four) are combined into one larger pixel. This will produce shots that will resemble those taking from a 27MP camera with a pixel size of 1.6 microns.
The TENAA filing reveals the handset will pack a massive 5,170mAh battery,...
