The Xiaomi Mi 9 packs a lot of flagship inside a €450 package. Want to see what goes inside that package? It starts with the Gorilla Glass 5 on the back that comes in some wild iridescent colors.

Just below that is the coil for the world’s fastest 20W wireless charging, the NFC antenna too. And below that is the 3,300mAh battery. The front and back glass as well as everything inside is mounted to the 7000 series aluminum chassis.
