Xiaomi Mi 9 SE Specs & Price: The first Snapdragon 712 smartphone

Xiaomi Mi 9 took on the stardom status earlier today but another smartphone came in as well. The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE (Special Edition) was introduced by company CEO Lei Junas the first in the world with the new Snapdragon 712 chipset. It has a 48 MP camera with Sony IMX586 sensor on the back, and an UD fingerprint scanner on the front.

The Mi 9 SE is a bit smaller than the flagship – it has a 5.97-inch AMOLED panel with a waterdrop notch on top and slightly thicker bezel on the bottom. The Snapdragon 712 chipset is coupled with 6 GB RAM and 64/128 GB storage.

Speaking about the new SoC, it is pretty much the same as the Snapdragon 710, but with a slightly faster CPU. It is still built on the 10nm FiNFET process and its modem supports all the usual Wi-Fi standards, Bluetooth 5.0, and dual LTE.

The main shooter has a 13 MP ultra wide-angle lens and an 8 MP telephoto lens to keep it company. The front-facing camera is 20 MP with plenty of Beauty filters for all the social media addicts out there.

There is fast-charging for the 3,070 mAh battery in the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE, but it is capped at 18W.
