Redmi Note 9 Pro is the most interesting smart phone of the novelties that Xiaomi has just presented for launch in Spain. It is an important series taking into account the great acceptance that previous versions have had (the 8 series especially) until it is placed among the most sold in the mid-range. Xiaomi has sold 110 million Redmi units, as announced in the presentation.
Xiaomi continues to market smartphones at a good pace, both its own and what comes from its parallel brands and today it was the presentation of the Redmi Note 9 Pro and also of the Redmi Note 9, models already marketed in China and that complement the 9S model that we announced above. Recently.
As we expected, the new Xiaomi smartphones offer huge diagonal screens, a reinforced camera system and new chipsets. Especially attractive is the Snapdragon 720G which mounts the Pro model, Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset for the mid-range at the start of 2020, which comes with the surname ‘G’ for gaming, which means it supports some platform features Snapdragon Elite Gaming. Redmi Note 9 Pro adds a new linear Z axis motor with haptic feedback that should make gaming easier.
This chipset includes a Kryo 465 CPU with two Cortex-A76 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores, which promise a 60% performance boost, while the Adreno 618 GPU promises a 75% performance boost. Also supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1Quick Charge 4+ for fast charging (up to 50% in 15 minutes) and includes enhancements to DSP Hexagon and ISP Spectra engines. The terminal’s battery is up to scratch with a 5,020 mAh capacity and 30-watt fast charge.
Redmi Note 9 Pro has the new Xiaomi Aura Balance design that bets on a symmetrical design, with a 3D curved glass body. The back and front of the device are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the same as the main camera module, reinforced for the occasion with a rear that includes four sensors, a main one of 48 MP, another wide angle of 8 MP, a macro of 5 MP and a main room for depth. The front selfie camera has a 16-megapixel sensor and mounts into the typical (and horrible) hole in the screen.
