Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer Edition 8GB/256GB version coming in late March

The regular Xiaomi Mi 9 is already one of the most powerful ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/link/https://www.appmarsh.com/xiaomi_mi_9_becomes_the_new_antutu_performance_leader-news-35842.php) Android flagships, and the upcoming Mi 9 Explorer Edition ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/link/https://www.appmarsh.com/xiaomi_mi_9_explorer-9584.php) looks to cater to those in need of a bit more RAM as well as a flashy transparent back.

Some Chinese users were unhappy with the fact that an 8GB RAM + 256GB option wasn’t available and it looks like their complaints are heard. Xiaomi’s Product Director Wang Teng Thomas responded on Weibo that a 8GB RAM + 256GB transparent Mi 9 is coming soon. This model would fit between the regular Mi 9 and the top 12GB/256GB Explorer Edition.

Apart from the extra RAM, the Mi 9 Explorer shares the same internals as the regular Mi 9 including a 6.39-inch notched Super AMOLED FHD+ display alongside the Snapdragon 855 with 8 or 12 GB RAM. The same 20MP front camera and a 48MP + 16MP + 12MP rear triple camera setup.

Speculations currently point to a late March release and a CNY 3,599 ($535 / €475) price tag.
