While the upcoming Mi 9 rumors are already making a lot of hype on the internet, there’s a new addition to the list. Xiaomi President Lin Bin shared a teaser image of a new smartphone.
The image has a smartphone showing a 48-megapixel camera.

So, if we go by the tipped leak and the new image shared by Xiaomi President, both have a similarity. The 48-megapixel sensor confirms the primary lens of the triple rear camera setup. Also, the leaked image is not the frontal side of any smartphone.
