Xiaomi Mi 9 SE lands in the Philippines. It's the first smartphone to rock the Snapdragon 712 chipset.
Xiaomi Mi 9 SE was launched in the Philippines in line with the opening of the 8th Mi Authorized Store in Robinson's Place Manila, last May 18. The handset is the little brother of the earlier released Xiaomi Mi 9 flagship.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE got a lot of premium cues from the bigger Mi 9 - it packs a water-drop display which pushes a minimal notch intended for the front camera. Likewise, it frames a roughly 6-inch Super AMOLED display, that's 5.97-inch to be exact. To add cherry on top, the screen is layered with a Gorilla Glass 5.
This 7.5-mm handset is the first device to pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC which features a 2.3GHz processor and an Adreno 616 GPU. The chipset is coupled with 6 gigs of RAM for faster multitasking activities and seamless app launching. You'll also have the option to choose between 64GB and 128GB configurations.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE also boasts the 48MP sensor with f/1.8-aperture lens on top of the 13MP ultra-wide sensor and the 8MP telephoto camera. On the front, the Mi 9 SE employs a 20MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture.
The handset is powered by a 3070 mAh LiPo battery and is expected to charge faster with 18-watt rating via the USB Type C 2.0 port. On the software side, this worker runs on MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie.
