Xiaomi, Meitu's first phone coming next week with 32MP selfie camera
Xiaomi first smartphone as part of its deal with beautification app company Meitu is set to launch on July 2, the mobile colossus revealed on Weibo.
The company has also revealed a few more details on Weibo, including the fact that it will offer a 32MP selfie camera. Camera samples published on the Chinese platform feature Mi CC 9 branding, giving us the name of the new phone too. Check out a few of the samples below.
Xiaomi CC brand manager Cici Wei has also confirmed that there is a Photobooth-like mode of sorts, allowing you to take shots without actually pressing the shutter key. It’s unclear whether the phone will detect expressions and automatically snap pictures or if it relies on voice or other commands. Hopefully it’s the former, as it means users have peace of mind that the phone will capture snaps without their input being needed.
We don’t know much else about the Mi CC 9, but earlier rumors suggest it could have a flip camera mechanism like the ASUS Zenfone 6. A Weibo video by Xiaomi seems to show a phone with a tiny notch rather than a flip housing though. Xiaomi co-founder Bin Lin has however posted an image confirming that we’ll see two Mi CC 9 variants, so it’s possible one might offer a camera on a swivel.
