Xiaomi launched the all-new Redmi 9 today & for a starting price of just €149 (for Spain), this device surely packs a punch. It has the MediaTek Helio G80 chipset, a Quad camera array, a huge 5,020mAh battery & more. As we know already, there are also the 9A & 9C, but those devices were not launched today by Xiaomi. Maybe they’re for specific markets only.
REDMI 9 – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
While the phone looks like yet another budget phone from the front with that waterdrop notch, the design on the back is pretty unique. It is like a combination of the design of Redmi Note 8 Pro & the Redmi K30. There is a circular design around the camera module & the rest of the back has a textured finish for better grip & also to avoid unnecessary fingerprints. On top of all of this, there is a gradient color finish.
There is a USB Type-C port placed on the bottom with the headphone jack & the phone also has an IR Blaster on the top. The fingerprint scanner is there on the back as well.
Redmi 9 has a 6.53-inch IPS LCD panel on the front, but instead of going for a 720p screen, Redmi went for a Full-HD+ panel, which is great for a budget phone. The display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection & 400 nits brightness.
Under the hood, there is MediaTek Helio G80 chipset & for this price, it is an excellent choice. It is built on the 12nm FinFET technology & has two powerful Cortex-A75 cores clocked at up to 2.0GHz. There is also Mali-G52 MC2 GPU with 950MHz frequency.
The phone comes with either 3GB or 4GB LPDDR4X RAM & 32/64GB eMMC 5.1 storage.
Redmi 9 has a Quad camera setup on the back that includes a primary 13-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture lens, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with 118-degree FOV, a 5 Megapixel macro camera & a 2 Megapixel depth sensor. The rear camera can shoot up to 1080p 30fps videos.
The camera on the front is an 8 Megapixel unit.
Finally, there is a massive 5,020mAh battery & Redmi 9 supports 18W Fast charging. In the box, however, you get the 10W charger.
