PHILIPPINES – Xiaomi announced Mi 9 SE today in the Philippines – the latest addition to the Mi 9 series. Mi 9 SE is a compact flagship featuring Qualcomm’s brand new Snapdragon 712 processor. With an 19.5:9 5.97“ Dot Drop display, Mi 9 SE’s size is comparable to a classic 5.1” smartphone. Like Mi 9, Mi 9 SE offers LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.1 storage, holographic rainbow spectrum surface on the back, 48MP camera using the Sony IMX586 sensor, as well as the latest in-screen fingerprint sensor module and multi-function NFC, making it a flagship within the compact phone category.
“The Mi 9 SE is designed to give Mi fans the performance they need in a more compact package,” said Steven Shi, Head of Southeast Asia, Xiaomi. “It follows the Mi 9 series’ heritage of bringing flagship-level experience at a more affordable price, strengthening Xiaomi’s commitment to bringing value-for-money products to everyone.”
Beautifully designed for one-hand use
Mi 9 SE has an expansive 5.97” AMOLED Dot Drop display while retaining its small form factor. At only 155g and 7.45mm thick, Mi 9 SE is ultra-slim and light and is made for easy-one handed operation. Mi 9 SE also includes an improved in-screen fingerprint sensor for a faster unlocking experience.
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 712—faster and more power efficient

Mi 9 SE is also capable of taking 123° ultra-wide angle shots for landscape and architectural photographs, or shooting beautiful portraits with its telephoto lens.
