We’re only a day away from the official launch of the Xiaomi Mi 9 and there’s already a lot of promotional images, videos and even full specs making the rounds. One interesting factoid is that the Alita Special Edition is actually the Transparent Edition of the said phone. The Mi 9 Alita Special Edition is not only said to come with a whopping 12GB of RAM , but will have a clear glass back as well. This transparent back cover will give the illusion of peering into its high tech internals, although similar to what they did with the Mi 8 Pro Explorer Edition, that won’t be a real PCB you’ll be looking at.
Other differences between the Alita Special Edition versus a regular Mi 9 can be found in the camera. Both will sport a 48mp rear shooter, the Alita Edition will have a better f/1.47 aperture and 7P lens versus the regular version that will come with f/1.75 aperture and 6P lens. Everything else should be identical between the two, including a Snapdragon 855 SoC, AMOLED display by Samsung, and an in-screen fingerprint reader.
