Xiaomi's Mi 9 will arrive in Europe this week starting at €449.

Along with the reveal of its first 5G phone, Xiaomi also used its MWC 2019 Press Conference today to announce European pricing and launch information for its upcoming mi 9 phone.

Prices will start at €449 (around $509) for a model with 64GB of onboard storage, or €499 (around $565) if you want a 128GB variant. UK prices are set to be announced closer to the phone's launch, which will arrive on February 28.

Outside of the amount of onboard storage, the specs of the two phones are identical. Both are powered by a newer Qualcomm Qualcomm flagship Snapdragon 855 processor, and come complete with three cameras on the rear.

These cameras, which have increased in number from the two rear cameras of last year's mi 8, include a 48-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom and a 16-megapixel wide-angle camera with a 117-degree field of view.

Next February 28 in black, blue or purple.

Wireless charging is one of the key strengths of my 9. If you use a compatible charger produced by Xiaomi, you can charge the phone wirelessly with 20W of power, fully charging the device in one hour and 40 minutes. If you opt for wired charging, the phone's maximum power consumption is 27W with a compatible power adapter.

Unfortunately, there's no word if the variant of the phone with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of on-board storage (which was announced last week for the Chinese market) will make its way to Europe. That also means there's no transparent model of the phone available. Instead, you'll have to make do with the black, blue and purple variants.
