The first unofficial renders of the Xiaomi Mi 9 are making their rounds on the web and looks like they have hit the key points of rumors so far. The main feature of the Mi 9 is the triple rear camera setup with a 48MP main module. 18MP and 8MP sensors complete the rear camera setup, according to reports.

When Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun was asked if the upcoming Mi 9 will support 24W fast charging, he quickly replied that the device must have “better” fast charging. Now, this could mean one of a few things – either the rumored 32W fast charging for the Mi 9 is true, or it could also just be a confirmation that it will indeed have 24W fast charging. While 32W is somewhere in QC5 territory, the Snapdragon 855 only supports QC4+. Still, enabling it might only be a matter of a software update. In any case, this confirms that the Mi 9 will have something special up its sleeve, as far as charging is concerned. Source Via
