Further expanding the Chinese brand's foothold Further expanding the Chinese brand's foothold in the upper mid-tier market, Xiaomi's Mi 9 smartphone is now available in Australia.

Following on from the Mi Mix 3, the Xiaomi Mi 9 is a lean, mean, flagship-fighting machine. It boasts a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6.39-inch AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM, an in-display fingerprint sensor, a 3300mAh battery plus a triple-lens (48-megapixel + 16-megapixel + 12-megapixel) 'AI' camera on the back of it.

There's also a dedicated Google assistant button on the side and a teardrop notch on the front.

If that all sounds familiar, this next part might not. In addition to supporting 27W QC4+ fast-charging over USB Type-C, the Mi 9 also supports 20W wireless fast charging. Xiaomi claim this feature is a world first when it comes to smartphones - though I don't see many Galaxy S10 owners ditching their devices over slower wireless charging anytime soon.

In Australia, the Xiaomi Mi 9 will be available in three colors (Piano Black, Ocean Blue and Lavender Yellow) and two memory configurations: 64GB or 128GB. Pricing for the 64GB model starts at $829 while the 128GB version of the Xiaomi Mi 9 comes in at $879.

Given the Snapdragon 800-series chipset inside the Mi 9 and the fact that Oppo's more-recent devices have soared above $1000 when it comes to price, that RRP is surprisingly competitive. The Xiaomi Mi 9 is available now via the Australian Mi Store plus local Mi marketplace partners like Amazon, Catch and eBay.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
