Xiaomi is soon bringing its high-end Mi 9 to life (February 20 to be precise) which has been making headlines for quite some time. The company has also dropped a few hints here and there, the most recent ones shedding light on its camera and other features.

The front-facing camera will stand at 20MP with support for AI-based camera features.
The smartphone is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. The device, with a metal+glass build, is suggested to sport a water drop notched display based on a Samsung AMOLED display panel. The smartphone will have a screen-to-body ratio of 90.7%.
