Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has officially confirmed first smartphones under its new CC series — CC9 and CC9e — that would be launched on July 2.
According to a report in tech portal GSM Arena on Monday, the new CC series would be limited to China as the company is geared up to launch Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro in India.
On Friday, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun explained that the name means "Colorful & Creative" and it is being developed by a 'Chic & Cool' team comprising art students. The smartphone is will be the first Meitu-branded after its acquisition by Xiaomi in November last year. Lei said the CC9 will have a new aesthetics concept of “Xiaomi X Meitu AI Aesthetics Lab", combining advanced camera hardware and beauty technology.
This probably means that Xiaomi might implement even more beauty filters and AI engines to enhance the photos, something that is already very popular in China.
