Review of Xiaomi Redmi Note 9
At just over € 200, the more compact Redmi Note 9 comes with the same overall architecture as the Pro edition, with much of the same specifications. We received a Forest Green package and that's what caught our initial interest here.
The handset is fitted with a 6.53 "Display, which is very wide and paired with the fairly small bezels on the sides render a pretty big screen. Still the footprint is more than decent for the screen size, given the phone's pricing.
We've got the signature square camera setup flipping the phone, seen on all Redmi Note 9 devices. Here too this standard edition has a fingerprint reader. It is not a fancy under-display sensor, but it is super quick and precise.
The top row is the 48MP primary shooter and the ultrawide 8MP camera, while the two bottom modules are a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro operator. The LED flash had to be moved to the side of the square setup, while Xiaomi still put the tacky "48MP AI Quad Camera" label underneath the snappers.
The front camera is equipped with a 13 MP sensor and f/2.3 aperture. We would definitely be looking in great depth at the results of all shooters in our comprehensive analysis. Some of the main selling points for Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 is the 5,020 mAh battery which charges up to 18W over USB-C.
There is also reverse 9W charging via a wire, and you can share some of the power with other users as long as you have the right cable for that. You get a classic USB-A to USB-C cable and a 22.5W charger in the box, as well as a transparent case for protecting your phone.
