Xiaomi had launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max in India in March 2020. Xiaomi is gearing to launch its next affordable Redmi phone in India. The phone in question is named Note 9. To recall, Xiaomi had launched Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro Max in India in March, but unlike convention, the vanilla Note 9 wasn’t launched alongside. Xiaomi had however confirmed that a Note 9 was within the making and it might be launched later.
Redmi Note 9 Features
The vanilla Note 9 is already an enter select markets (since April) so we have already got some idea of what to expect though Xiaomi may surprise us by updating the specs. One of the “unique” things about Note 9 in India is going to be its made in India credentials, something that Xiaomi is also hyping on social media. Unlike the recently launched Mi 10 and Mi Notebook 14, Note 9 is going to be made in India and not imported from China, something that’s relevant in the current scenario (of strong anti-China sentiment blowing across the country).
The Note 9 global variant comes with a 6.53-inch IPS LCD display with a 1080p+ resolution and a punch-hole cutout with a 13MP selfie camera. The phone is powered by an 8-core MediaTek Helio G85 processor, paired with up to 4GB RAM and up to 128GB storage which is additionally expandable. The software inside the phone is Android 10-based MIUI 11. The phone is further backed by a 5,020mAh battery with 18W fast charging support via
USB Type C
Note 9 has four cameras on the rear. There’s a 48MP main, 8MP ultrawide angle, 2MP depth, and another 2MP for macros or closeups.
Note 9 global variant comes in two configurations, 3GB/64GB for $199 (roughly Rs 15,000) and 4GB/128GB for $249 (roughly Rs 19,000). In India, Xiaomi is predicted to price it below the existing Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max phones.
