As previously reported, the device will come with a 48-megapixel camera sensor with an f/1.75 aperture with Sony IMX586 sensor. The device will use pixel binning technology to output 12-megapixel images in low light conditions for improved image quality. The second camera will sport a 16-megapixel sensor with ultra wide lens providing a focal coverage of 117 degrees and an f/2.2 aperture. This lens will also support macro photography with a minimum focal distance of 4cm. The third sensor will come with a 12-megapixel sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and 2x optical zoom. Mi 9 will also come with a 20-megapixel camera sensor on the front with support for all the features that we have seen in the AI-powered Beauty mode.

Leaked information also confirmed that the transparent back variant, the Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer Edition of the device will sport a quad camera set up on the back instead of the triple camera setup that we have seen in the Mi 9. According to the information, the fourth lens will likely come with ToF (Time of Flight) sensor as the Chinese text translates to periscope light variable lens while talking about the sensor. Xiaomi has already revealed the official renders of the device giving us a look at the 3D holographic gradient finish on the back.

According to a report by GSMArena which is based on a tweet by @I_Leak_VN and similar information by Slash Leaks, the regular version of the device is likely to come with 3,499 RMB which amounts to Rs 36,851 and the Mi 9 Explorer Edition is likely to be priced at 5,999 RMB which is about Rs 63,182.
