Today we found on Reddit a video posted by Xiaomiska that shows the Xiaomi CC9 Meitu Edition taking a selfie test under low-light conditions. We are not 100% sure that this is indeed the Meitu edition since it does not have a rotating camera, but it does seem to be at least the normal version. Either way, according to the video below, the phone is capable of taking high-quality selfies, despite the fact that the room was intentionally poorly lit.
According to the source, they were testing the AI capabilities of the phone. The Xiaomi CC9 will have an AI onboard that is meant to increase photo quality and remove artifacts. In this particular case, the phone enhances lightning in the photo and overall quality. The result is compared to an iPhone and the results look very promising. Off course, just from the video, we can’t make a fully informed decision on the final result, but the images below were also posted on social media, to further convince us that the Xiaomi CC9 will be a capable photophone.
