The Redmi Note 9 is expected to go on sale from 24th March, however, that was categorized as uncertainty as the pandemic continues to rise and major distributors are turning their heads in dispersing electronic devices at such a time. However, while we await the current market leader to drop their latest device, here are some things to know about the next Note upgrade.
Despite arriving just 5 months after its younger brother, the Note 9 boasts a quick upgrade if you are looking to switch devices. It also provides a nice device if you are looking to enter the Redmi wave. It’s bigger, taller and thicker in all dimensions, however, it feels a lot slimmer than before. It completes its look with a hefty 6.67-inch display with a massive 5000mAH battery. Standard ports are all included, such as Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back of the device.
The panel is an IPS LCD panel that Redmi pulls of beautifully. Plus, the huge screen makes your viewing experiences an even glad one, no matter your surroundings. While the device will support 18W fast charging, the 5000mAH brick still takes a good hour and a half to completely charge. While it will last all day depending on your use, the battery is not something any Redmi device in this range can boast off.
The device further integrates a Snapdragon 720G chipset which is a premium chip for gamers as it offers blistering performances without a hitch. The camera could have been a bit better as the 48MP shooter relies on a GM2 sensor. While photos appear bright and crisp in most conditions, it is better to carry a different camera if you are going to peddle some nighttime photography.
Redmi’s portrait mode and the selfie camera knock it out of the park in their leagues and are a step from their previous version. For 12,999 there is perhaps no other device that can offer you the specs that Redmi dare do. If you are looking for a device under this price, look no further.
