Xiaomi had acquired the phone company Meitu last year. The results of that acquisition are out now. They have announced a new series of phones called as Xiaomi CC series. But no actual phone models have been announced as of yet.
Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun introduced the CC series today in China. He explained the meaning behind the unusual name and said that it meant Colourful and Creative. He further added that it was developed by the Chic and Cool 90 team.
No phones were announced yet. And we are waiting with bated breath for the official launch date for the flip camera phone CC9 which would be an interesting smartphone just like the ASUS 6z.
Xiaomi CC series details and more
The 9 in the CC9 name stands for the current age of Xiaomi which is 9 years. After the launch of the Mi and Redmi brand of smartphones, the CC series would be the third series of phones by them. Poco is not even considered to be a part of Xiaomi these days as it was an offshoot of Xiaomi and a separate brand. Rumours abound that Poco is going to shut shop soon and it’s very likely possible!
The Xiaomi CC lineup would be designed by art students and would be targeted at a young and looks centric audience who want the best-looking smartphones. This naturally implies that flagship grade performance and best value for money might take a backseat with this line up of smartphones.
Lei Jun added in his statement that young people want to be seen and heard and that’s why the CC series would focus exclusively on that. The phones would focus on advanced camera hardware with beauty software to give the most enhanced selfies and pictures possible.
This a very likely indication that Xiaomi might add even more modes to its already long list of camera modes in the upcoming CC series.
Now we can just wait and watch to see what actually happens as time passes! So guys what do you think? Would Xiaomi actually bring the CC series to India? Do let us know what you think in the comments section below!
