The smartphone is certified by Google.
Xiaomi CC devices were introduced in early July. They are intended for the Chinese market (although you can already find them on sale in Ukrainian online stores) and some time ago it was suggested that the CC9 model will go on the global market as the Mi A3 Pro (given that the Mi A3 is a copy of the CC9e) . Now, the chief editor of the XDA-Developers resource Mishaal Rahman said that the smartphone Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite has appeared in the list of certified Android devices. Its code name is “pyxis” similar to CC9.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite just appeared on Google's list of certified Android devices. It's listed with the code-name pyxis and is a variant of the Mi CC9.

Unfortunately, there is no information regarding the date of the presentation of the new model. However, if the smartphone does not belong to the Android One program, interest in it may be less than if it were Mi A3 Pro.
