After unveiling the line with the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro Max in its native land last March, and bringing the first of these devices to international markets under the name of Redmi Note 9S, Xiaomi continues to expand this offer, now with a more modest and manageable Redmi Note 9.

Globally, there are some differences with the ‘S’ model, although the main ones will be both the size and the processor, a processor, which in this more basic variant comes trusting MediaTek as CPU provider.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9, return to MediaTek

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 is based on the design that the Redmi Note 9S. It has a screen in IPS LCD technology up to 6.53 inches diagonal, for a Full HD + resolution in a 20: 9 format.

Nothing new in this regard, nor in the memory configurations that land with it. Well we can choose between versions with 3 or 4 GB of RAM, which will be 64 or 128 GB for internal storage.

As we advanced, behind is the Snapdragon 720G of the 9S. In this case we find a MediaTek Helio G85, with manufactured in a 12 nanometer process that, at least in this sense, is a complete generation behind. This is why we can expect this variant to be both less powerful and less efficient than the previous model.

Four cameras fit into your square photographic module now and again. The main one fits a 48 megapixel sensor with f / 1.8 aperture, very typical in all kinds of Xiaomi proposals. It comes accompanied with up to three extra sensors, yet to confirm its specific details.

Since it is heavily based on the Note 9S, the battery is of a generous and identical capacity in this version. It reaches 5,020 mAh again, which also comes with the possibility of fast charging – not wireless – of up to 18 W of maximum power.
