Key specifications of the alleged Xiaomi Mi 9X has been leaked on the web via Weibo. The smartphone could bear a 6.4-inch full HD AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch. Under the hood, it is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 675 chipset, which is the same SoC powering the Redmi Note 7 Pro. It could be offered in 6GB RAM and 64GB storage option.
The notch is said to house a 32-megapixel front-facing camera for shooting selfies. The device will also feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. As for the rear camera setup, the Mi 9X could come with a triple camera system with a massive 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens, and an 8-megapixel with a telephoto sensor.
On the software side, it could ship with MIUI 10 on top of Android 9 Pie. The Chinese company might stuff in a small 3,300mAh with 18W fast charging support. The Mi 9X is expected to come with a starting price of RMB 1699 (approximately Rs 17,500), and may debut sometime in April. Besides, recently, as many as three new Xiaomi smartphones with fingerprint-on-display tech were spotted for hardware testing.

The devices are also codenamed as “pyxis”, “bamboo_sprout”, and “cosmos_sprout”. Additionally, two of the three units may run on Android One.
