Xiaomi adds a new member to the Mi 9 series lineup, the Mi 9 Pro 5G.

The key highlight of the new flagship phone is its support for 30W wireless charging. Xiaomi claims that the 4,000mAh battery of the Mi 9 Pro 5G can be filled up in just 69 minutes! A full charge can also be achieved in less than 50 minutes through 40W wired charging. Its reverse wireless charging is also faster than rival phones at 10W.

The Mi 9 Pro 5G is powered by Snapdragon 855+, 8 or 12GB RAM and the all-new MIUI 11 user interface. It comes with a 6.39-inch 1080p display and a triple-lens setup consisting of a 48MP primary lens, a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, and a 16MP ultra-wide angle lens. To prevent overheating, the Mi 9 Pro 5G has vapour chamber (VC) liquid cooling in an L-shaped design with 5 layers of graphite sheet. 

Xiaomi is selling the Mi 9 Pro 5G in four configurations: 

  • 8GB RAM + 128GB for 3,699 yuan (~S$716)
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB for 3,799 yuan (~S$735)
