Xioami CC Smartphone Revealed: What We Know?
According to the promotional video, we could clear cut infer that the phone uses typical Xiaomi’s design. Dressed in white color, the CC phone sports a waterdrop notch screen, triple camera setup in the rear. Interestingly, the phone has white color on the rear side and black color on the front side. Based on the renders revealed on TENAA with model number M1904F3BC, we could confirm with a little bit of skepticism that Xiaomi CC phone and the one leaked on TENAA are both the same. Xiaomi is expected to name the phone with CC9 moniker.
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun during the announcement said that the new phone would utilize both Xiaomi and Meitu AI Aesthetics Lab for the development of the phone. He also said that CC means Colorful & Creative, and is developed by the Chic & Cool 90 team. With the launch of CC series, Xiaomi will add a third sub-brand to its portfolio after Mi and Redmi.
Regarding availability and pricing of Xiaomi CC series, we expect the phone to launch in July and price to start at around CNY 1500 or INR 15,500 or $220.
