The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE phone is one of the most successful products of the past period. This is not surprising, as the high-speed mobile with lightning-fast hardware is a great choice for under 300 USD.
In recent years, Xiaomi has gained a great reputation not only in China but also abroad. The primary goal of the manufacturer is to produce quality phones at affordable prices. Over the past few years, many high-end, mid and low-end mobile phones have proven their worth.
The newly released Xiaomi Mi 9 SE phone has only been released in the last month, but it is already a big interest in mobile to be sure it will be one of the success products of this year.
This is not surprising, as we look at the Mi9 SE specification, we can see that there is a very strong hardware under the back cover, which is a step forward compared to its predecessor (Xiaomi Mi 8 SE) model.
The front panel features a Samsung AMOLED display that is full of 5.97-inch full HD + color and fills the entire surface (90,47% screen-to body ratio, NTC 103,8% color gamut). All of these make Xiaomi Mi 9 SE more colorful when watching videos and photos. Suncscreen 2.0 can adjust the contrast according to light automatically (600nit High Brightness). Just in the upper part is a tiny drop-shaped notch, where the front camera is hiding.
The manufacturer, following the trends on the back of this year, has placed three cameras, one of which is a 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor camera. Under the main camera you will find the 8MP and 13MP modules.
Thanks to lenses with different viewing angles, you can even double the optical zoom during use. Last year, this feature was only available for high-end mobile phones, and fortunately this year, mid- and high-mid-range mobile phones were also available.
Another extra feature is slow motion video recording at 960 frames per second, allowing anyone to create artistic videos.
Xiaomi has replaced the Snapdragon 710 in last year’s model, released this year for Snapdragon 712, which only includes refinements compared to its predecessor. Thanks to fine tuning, we also get a 10% performance boost for Mi 9.
The size of the memory has also increased in the new model, with 6 GB (LPDDR4x) memory and 64 GB UFS 2.1 storage in the cheapest version. You don’t have to add a lot to the base model, and we already have a double-size storage space (128GB), but 6GB is left.
It is worthwhile to estimate the size of the required storage space before buying, as there is often no extra SD card expansion available on Xiaomi’s high and mid-range mobile phones. From this, Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is no exception, leaving it for our 64 GB or 128 GB storage data.
Fortunately, the SE has inherited a lot of good features from the big brother, Xiaomi Mi 9: there is NFC, 18W fast charging capability, on-screen fingerprint reader, infrared remote control, B20 international version, multilingual operating system, dual band Wi-Fi and dual band Precise GPS (L1 + L5).
The support of the B20 (800MHz) LTE network can be a special pleasure for domestic customers, because unfortunately this was omitted from the Mi 8 SE last year.

Xiaomi will also be represented in every price category this year with the release of the Mi 9 SE. At the entry level, the Redmi 7 versions can be a great choice, with Redmi Note 7 phones running from $ 170 in mid-range. With the Snapdragon 675 system chip, Redmi Note 7 Pro could be a great opponent for the Mi 9 SE, but unfortunately, no international version can be ordered. Performance fanatics are still available on the Snapdragon 845 PocoPhone F1.
Mi 9 SE is a gold medal for those who want a bit more extras than the aforementioned phones, but they can’t afford the high-end Mi 9.
