The Mi 9 comes in two variants: the regular version, and its Transparent Edition. Both models were packed with powerful specs but, of course, they have slight differences. One of these was found on its design. As the name suggests, the Transparent Edition is dressed with a transparent back, while the regular Mi 9 features a glass-like body.

The handsets were equipped with a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution. Also, it is mounted with a waterdrop notch to give off a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
