Let us know what you expect specs wise? ;-)

Most interesting is that Xiaomi has seemingly chosen to directly attack Samsungs release of its S10 with the Mi9 on the same day 20/2.

Can the Mi9 be so good?

Or is there some other interpretation, from Chinese culture, of "Battle Angel"? Something other than than the biblical one, or Rilkes, that I have never heard of?

Should Samsung be truly afraid, or merely amused?

Probably coincidence I think @cobben
Well, they claim:

"On February 22nd, the exclusive mobile phone partner of the "Alita: Battle Angel""

But it does seem to be a connection created on the spur of the moment, not planned out ahead.

What happens 22/2?
The film was released 14/2 as I recall.
14/2 in the US, 31/1 world premier in London.

"The film is set for release in Japan and China on February 22, 2019, after the Chinese New Year holidays."

I feel better wait for awhile and browse miui forum to check if there's any problem.. esp bootloader unlocking. Hopefully Xiaomi not prolong the wait time for unlocking..

If it has ARB enabled, as is likely, that alone is a deal killer for me personally.

Most interesting will be to see how the 3 camera system works in practice.

There is an article about how it is designed to work on the MIUI forum, real life reviews needed.

392,95 Euro -> 432,26 -> 523,97

But I think in the first few month the prices will be almost the twice in Europe

Same here, I am in China so I plan to buy it here, but wonder if they will let the bootloader to be unlocked, as the Chinese version and Global version don't have the same bands (not like Mi 8).
