The official Facebook account shared a teaser poster for the event. The poster shows a silhouette of a phone and two major landmarks in the city of Lagos. We believe the phone in the image is the Mi 9.
Xiaomi currently has three phones with triple rear cameras – the Mi 9, the Mi 9 Transparent Edition, and the Mi 9 SE. Only the Mi 9 and the Mi 9 SE have global variants at the moment which rules out the Mi 9 Transparent Edition, but the next proof confirms it is the Mi 9 and not the Mi 9 SE.
Happy belated 9th Birthday to Mi!
You guys are truly what keep us going! We are so flattered to have Mi fans around Nigeria celebrate this special occasion with us. Retweet if you spot yourself in these pictures 🙂 #XiaomiNigeria #HappyBirthdayToMi #9thBirthday pic.twitter.com/G7Rz8DtBT9

The official Xiaomi Nigeria Twitter account shared photos taken at the manufacturer’s 9th-anniversary celebration. The watermark for two of the pictures shows they were taken with the Mi 9. Since Xiaomi officials in Nigeria already have the phone, it only makes sense it is the one they plan to announce at the event
