Though the Redmi Note 9 series has been on sale for about six months now, the company has just launched this popular budget-centric series in China. However, the Redmi Note 9 series in China is completely different from the one launched earlier this year in other markets. Xiaomi is trying to make 5G connectivity accessible to more netizens with the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G and Note 9 5G in its home country.

Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G

This Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is a rebadged version of the Mi 10T Lite, which launched in Europe earlier this year. But, it does bring a minor increment in the camera department. The design remains unchanged and the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G has Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and dual stereo speakers.

Redmi Note 9 Pro swaps out the 64MP primary camera aboard the Mi 10T Lite for a 108MP primary sensor. This is the first Redmi Note-series smartphone with a 108MP camera. It is the Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor that was unveiled in September earlier this year. You will also have an 8MP ultra-wide lens with a 120-degree FOV, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor on the rear.

Under the hood, Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is powered by the Snapdragon 750G chipset. It scores an impressive 351,232 points in the AnTuTu benchmark test. The chipset here is coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of built-in storage (expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card). The device runs Android 11-based MIUI 12 out-of-the-box.

The smartphone comes equipped with a 4,820mAh battery with 33W fast-charging support, which is a boon for users. Turning our attention to the front, Redmi Note 9 Pro features a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The display boasts a 2400 x 1080-pixels resolution, 240Hz touch response rate, HDR10 support, and a punch-hole cutout with a 16MP selfie sensor at the center.

Redmi Note 9 Pro also sports a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, NFC, an IP53 rating, and more to round up the kitty. It will be available in three colorways.
