The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE will go on sale in China. The available units will be gone in seconds, that’s what happened with the larger Mi 9.
The base Mi 9 SE with 64GB storage costs CNY 2,000. There’s a version with 128GB storage at CNY 2,300, but both have the same RAM capacity, 6GB.
The SE model has the same 48MP main camera plus an ultra-wide and a telephoto. The whole phone is smaller with a 5.97” screen. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 712 chipset instead of the S855.
