During a global event broadcast virtually from the city of Beijing, the Chinese firm Xiaomi launched its latest mobile devices: the Redmi Note 9, the Redmi Note 9 Pro, and the Mi Note 10 Lite. Abi Go, Xiaomi’s senior product marketing manager, started her presentation by referring to the Redmi Note 9S that they launched two weeks ago. Today the family of mid-range phones is completed with the arrival of the Note 9 and Note 9 Pro, which promises to offer high-end features in more affordable devices.
Redmi Note 9
We say small because it is the smallest in power and size of both, but we are talking about a smartphone with a 6.53-inch LCD panel and 162.3 mm in height, in addition to having a weight of 199 grams. The screen is perforated in the upper left and reaches a 19.5: 9 ratio, so its FullHD + ratio offers us 2340 x 1080 pixels in this case, with a maximum brightness of 450 nits.
For the processor, Xiaomi opts for the Helio G85 running at 2GHz and with the ARM Mali-G52 GPU as support, in addition to two versions for sale with different RAM and internal storage. We find the model with 3GB and 64GB and the superior one, with 4GB and 128GB. Both are expandable thanks to a microSD tray that will occupy one of the spaces of the triple tray for the two 4G SIMs that can be mounted simultaneously.
We got to the cameras and here it is time to talk about its quad system for the back consisting of 48MP as the main sensor, with 8MP to an ultra-wide-angle lens and with two more cameras, the two 2MP. But one with a macro lens and the other in charge of depth readings. From bokeh. Turning the phone we find the front camera, 13MP in the case of this Redmi Note 9 that now arrives in Spain.
We close with the connectivity talking that in addition to the 4G dual SIM we have WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC chip for mobile payments, and a headphone port, in addition to the already classic infrared sensor that is already almost a brand of the house. The phone charges its 5020mAh battery at 18W maximum through the USB Type-C port. This Redmi Note 9 comes with a rear fingerprint sensor and Android 10 attached to MIUI as the operating system.
Redmi Note 9 Pro
The older brother, the Redmi Note 9 Pro, stretches its FullHD + LCD screen to 6.67 inches and does the same with the ratio, bringing it to 20: 9 and offering 2400 x 1080 pixels. With a perforation for the front camera, now in the center of the top, this screen has a maximum brightness of 450 nits and a contrast of 1,500: 1. The phone grows to almost 166 mm in height and the weight stands at 209 grams.
In this Redmi Note 9 Pro comes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G, reaching the clock speed of 2.3GHz and with the Adreno 618 GPU. In the memories, two models with 6GB of RAM but two internal storage options, 64GB and 128GB, and the same triple tray for two SIM cards and a microSD that cannot exceed 512GB of extra storage.
In cameras, we note another rise compared to the normal Redmi Note 9, such as the main camera stretching to 64MP or the macro lens reaching 5MP here. The other two rear cameras, the 8MP super wide-angle and the lens for 2MP depth readings are the same. And on the front, 16MP for selfies.
The phone is completed with a 5020mAh battery whose fast charge reaches up to 30W, and in connectivity, we have WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC chip, headphone jack, infrared sensor, GPS and USB type C.
