The Mobile World Congress is upon us and it's shaping to be one of the most exciting ones in recent years. But the first flagship for year 2019 is now out and it's not coming from Spain but China instead as the Xiaomi Mi 9 just landed.
The Mi 9 is the company's first smartphone to pack Qualcomm's latest chipset - the Snapdragon 855. The new processor and graphics are pretty exciting even if 5G isn't part of the package.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 packs a 6.39" Super AMOLED screen of 1080p resolution with a waterdrop-like notch. The panel has a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels that makes up for a very decent density at 402ppi. It is also one of the tallest screens around with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. That's not the highest number of pixels we've enjoyed but the display looks great and its punchiness makes every picture spring to life.
The display is protected by the latest Gorilla Glass 6 by Corning - the most shatter-resistant glass in the smartphone world. We are yet to see how it will pass the test of time, but seeing already other GG6-featuring phones, it is indeed doing great in drops, although it's rather prone to scratches.
The screen has a very decent brightness for an OLED panel of 430 nits - exactly what Xiaomi promises. But it can go as high as 620 nits in bright light if you leave it on Auto.

Battery life
The Xiaomi Mi 9 is powered by a bit modest 3,300mAh battery - that's 100mAh less than the cell inside the Mi 8. The good news is the Mi 9 supports both wired and wireless fast charging. But here comes the tricky part.

The Mi 9 ships with an 18W charger within its box and by all means - it's doing a decent job with with the 3,300 mAh battery. It can take a depleted battery to 45% in half an hour. But if that's not enough for you, for some extra $20 you can do better.
A lot of things have changed since the Mi 8, but the loudspeaker is not one of them. We were disappointed to find out that the Mi 9 doesn't boast stereo speakers. Instead, it has the same bottom-firing loudspeaker as the Mi 8 and it even scored the same Very Good mark at our loudness test.
Audio quality
Xiaomi Mi 9 did well with an active external amplifier, delivering output of above average loudness and flawless clarity.
It handled headphones well with a contained hike in stereo crosstalk the only notable change. Loudness remained above average too, adding up to a solid, if not quite spectacular performance.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 and its cutting-edge Snapdragon 855 chip are worthy of a flagship status as far as performance is concerned. The chip offers one of the fastest processors on the Android market, as usual, while its GPU punch delivered by the new Adreno 640 is class-leading and the best money can buy right now.
The Snapdragon 855 is manufactured on the cutting-edge 7nm process, and unlike the Kirin 980 (also 7nm), it heats up considerably less. The chip does release some amount of heat and the Mi 9 does have a few spots that get warm under pressure but that's about it - nothing gets uncomfortably hot. Some throttling may occur after running consecutive benchmark tests but only then.
Qualcomm has delivered an all-around great chip once again with class-leading graphics and competitive processor and the Mi 9 will get all the benefits from being among the first to carry it.
The triple camera has arrived

The Xiaomi Mi 9 introduces the company's first triple-camera setup. There is a huge 1/2" 48MP sensor behind f/1.75 lens on the back that spits 12MP images - this is your main camera. Then there is a 12MP telephoto snapper for 2x optical zoom, as well as a 16MP ultra-wide-angle shooter.
The Sony IMX586 48MP sensor uses a Quad Bayer arrangement, which essentially acts as a 12MP sensor with very large 1.6µm pixels and real-time HDR. If you capture 48MP photos with this camera though, a lot more interpolation will need to be applied and you wouldn't gain much extra detail.
The 48MP sensor is behind f/1.75 lens and is not stabilized. In fact, none of the three snappers features optical stabilization.

Image Quality

The default (wide-angle or 1x) photos come from the 48MP sensor, and after the phone works its magic on them, end up in 12MP resolution. And the ones we captured during the day are as really great. There is plenty of detail, impressive dynamic range, lively and accurate colors, superb contrast, and, overall, very nice processing. The images have just the right amount of sharpening applied so detail is highlighted, but there are not too many artifacts.
