Hi, again fellow Mi Fans! It’s been a long time since my last contribution to this blog. I return writing this time covering the latest news on Xiaomi’s latest moves, innovations, and products.
In June 21st, Xiaomi’s super cool CEO Lei Jun announced a joint collaboration between Xiaomi and Meitu. This partnership produces a new line up called Mi CC series.
This move is not too surprising considering the company took over Meitu brand last year.
Lei Jun explains through its Weibo post about the meaning of CC. Many Mi Fans are wondering the meaning of CC.
What is Mi CC anyway?
Mi CC is another product by Xiaomi in partnership with Meitu. Currently, there will be two devices available: Mi CC 9 and Mi CC 9e. Its render even leaks online prior to its official release.
Mi CC expects better camera performance thanks to Meitu’s expertise in the camera technology. Combining such a spec with Xiaomi’s expertise in delivering tempting phone specifications at a very affordable price will result in adorable Android devices.
Lei Jun also explains the real meaning of CC. He explicated that CC means Colorful & Creative. CC can also represent the developer team behind it which is the Chic & Cool 90 team. The team is said comprising of young people from Xiaomi and Meitu’s R&D division.
Its first product line up which is Mi CC 9 also inherits its own meaning. The number 9 represents company’s age which is 9 years.
Focusing on young people around the world, Mi CC 9 and Mi CC 9e will be available globally after its initial release in China.
We are not quite sure whether Mi CC 9 (and CC 9e) will sell under company’s parent brand or another sub-brand just like Redmi.
Lei Jun also hinted that Mi CC9 will be the best affordable Android device focusing on mobile camera performance regardless of what chipset powering under the hood. That alone has made us already too excited to anticipate its coming.
The device will boast a new aesthetics concept of “Xiaomi X Meitu AI Aesthetics Lab”. The concept incorporates AI photography technology produced by advanced camera hardware and the beauty technology of AI software.
Expected Mi 9 CC Specifications
Some of Mi 9CC specifications have been leaked whilst it’s not official yet. In-display fingerprint scanner, 48MP main camera, triple-camera setup, stunning AMOLED display, and Snapdragon 730 SoC are suggested to sit under the Mi CC 9 hood.
Could that be true?
Let’s find out together within coming weeks.
Stay tuned with us for further updates on Xiaomi’s latest news.
