Xiaomi Mi 9, the upcoming 2019 flagship phone from Xiaomi, has been certified by Singapore’s Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA).
The phone with model number M1901F1G bears the moniker ‘Xiaomi Mi 9’ in the IMDA website. This is the first time we have seen the name of this phone in any certification body across the world. Even the model number variant M1901F1G hasn’t been spotted in any of the certification websites yet, except for Taiwan’s NCC agency which certified the same variant a few weeks ago but the Chinese variants M1902F1A/T have already obtained the certifications from CCC and CMIIT.
However, as usual, we do not have any other information revealed from this IMDA listing other than the model name and the model number.
Xiaomi Mi 9 will definitely have a better design than Mi 8 and there have been quite a few rumors doing the rounds already about the specs and the design of this phone. We have also seen several renders of the phone doing the rounds.
The Mi 9 is expected to boast a triple camera setup which includes a 48 MP camera. The processor would be the Snapdragon 855 SoC. Being a top end flagship phone from the company, we can also expect it to support fast charging. The bezels are expected to be very thin, as per the renders circulating online. There’s also a waterdrop notch which is considerably smaller than the notch seen on Note 7 and Mi Play. Along with Xiaomi Mi 9, there is also Mi 9 SE reportedly in the works. Mi 9 SE could be the successor of Mi 8 SE.
Now that Xiaomi Mi 9 has been certified in Singapore, we can expect it to be certified in many other countries in the coming days and weeks leading to the MWC event. The Singapore certification also confirms that the phone will be launched globally. The phone might be unveiled either later this month during the MWC event or a few days after the event.
