Xiaomi to bring back its Animoji-like Mimoji to its upcoming CC9-series of smartphones
Nowadays every smartphone maker worth their salt is copying Apple’s Animoji stickers onto their own devices. Samsung did with the AR-emojis, and Asus has done it as well with ZenMoji. Xiaomi, which had already launched its own take on Memoji called as Mimoji on the Mi 8, is now bringing it to the Xiaomi CC-series of smartphones.
However, this new Mimoji will have more features than seen on the Mi 8 and other Xiaomi devices. The app will have a few limited edition characters such as the Bunny mascot and also give you the ability to turn your own face into an emoji. As per the Weibo post by Xiaomi executive Lao Wei the Mimoji you create can have 165 different hairstyles, faces and accessories.
Apart from that users will also have the ability to take photos, record videos, and even add their Avatars to famous paintings. The Xiaomi CC-series of smartphones is set to be unveiled in China on 2 July.
