Up until now, it was believed that the device bearing the M1908F1XE model number was the next Mi Mix phone but now a new report clarifies that it's actually be a 5G version of the Xiaomi Mi 9.

Xiaomi tipster Xiaomishka says a trustworthy source has confirmed the device in question is a revised version of the Mi 9 and apart from the 5G capabilities will bring several key upgrades over its predecessor.

First off, the Mi 9 5G will come with a larger screen packing a 2K resolution. We assume that means QHD as the two terms often get confused by Chinese makers and news outlets alike.

The camera department will also get a step up with the addition of OIS for the main shooter and the battery will feature a larger capacity and 45W fast charging. Other speculation points the device will ship with the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset.
