The Mi 9 SE launched as the first phone powered by the Snapdragon 712 processor. Actually, it is still the only phone powered by the chipset.
Even though it is a less powerful version of the Mi 9, the Mi 9 SE still packs some pretty impressive specs that put it in the premium upper mid-range category. It rocks an AMOLED display, has an in-display fingerprint scanner, and has the same exquisite finish as the Mi 9. It also has triple rear cameras, albeit of a different configuration.

Its predecessor, the Mi 8 S, didn’t get a global release but Xiaomi has officially confirmed today that the Mi 9 SE will be available outside China.
This isn’t actually news as third-party retailers have been selling a global version of the Mi 9 SE already. However, what this means is that you will soon be able to purchase this from Xiaomi or official distributors in your home country.
Xiaomi hasn’t revealed which countries will be getting it yet but that should become public knowledge in the coming weeks.
The Mi 9 SE has a 5.97-inch 1080 x 2340 Super AMOLED waterdrop display covered with Gorilla Glass 5. Its Snapdragon 712 processor is paired with 6GB of RAM with 64GB or 128GB of storage. There is a 48MP f/1.8 camera on the back of the phone which is paired with a 13MP f/2.4 ultra-wide angle camera and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto camera. Its selfie camera is a 20MP sensor
It has a 3070mAh battery under its Gorilla Glass back which supports 18W fast charging but skips the Mi 9’s wireless charging. It also doesn’t have an audio jack. The Mi 9 SE runs Android Pie out of the box.
If you don’t want to wait till it lands in your country, you can order the global version from Giztop at $369 for the 64GB version and $429 for the 128GB version.
