Without a shadow of a doubt, Xiaomi has done an awesome job in 2020 by releasing a handsome range of super-fancy and mid-range devices to offer something for all kinds of buyers. The masterpiece named Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 in Australia arrived alongside Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. The phone is loaded with an impressive number of specifications, but the most interesting part is its rear quad-camera configuration as well as a whopping 6GB RAM variant for super-smooth and glitch-free performance.
A number of key highlights of Redmi Note 9 are related to its 128GB of ROM, 6GB of RAM, 6.53-inches Display, Quad-camera configuration, Rear-mounted smooth Fingerprint Scanner, and 5020mAh battery.
Design & Display
New minimalist style improvements are in the mood of the Note 9 series. The square hump on the back of the phone looks a lot like other Redmi devices, and it’s a gentle change in the design. With an introduction of punch-holes, the minimalist style can be further applied to the front. Rather than a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which we have seen on Pro Edition, Redmi Note 9 comprises a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The front is backed by a vivid and punchy 6.53-inches display – based on IPS LCD technology with a maximum resolution of 1080 pixels and 2340 pixels. It stretches up to 83% thanks to the punch-hole cutout. Although it’s a Full HD panel and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 but doesn’t comprise a higher refresh rate. Unfortunately, it’s not good news for Redmi fans as its competitor Realme 6 sports a refresh rate of 90Hz.
Hardware and Software
Xiaomi decided to bring a MediaTek Helio G85 Chipset in Redmi Note 9 smartphone instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon, which is used in the Pro version. It seems to be the first smartphone using this chipset – partnered with Mali-G52 MC2 GPU for managing graphics.
Furthermore, the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset is said to be a top-notch chipset that offers flawless and seamless performance. It’s paired with up to 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of onboard memory to run multiple apps at once and store loads of data with ease.
Quad-camera configuration is available on the back of Redmi Note 9 that consists of a whopping 48MP primary camera – followed by an 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth camera. It features an LED Flash alongside Panorama, HDR, Touch to Focus, Autofocus, and a number of other features. Upfront, you see a single 13MP standard camera that can record 1080p videos at 30fps too.
Battery & Others
To power the phone, Xiaomi has added a 5020mAh non-removable battery with an 18W fast charging feature, and most interestingly, it comes with a 9W Reverse charging feature as well. The rest of the features include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.0, and three sensational colours to choose from – Polar White, Midnight Grey, and Forest Green.
