Hello Guys! In this article i will share with you complete and detailed review of Redmi Note 9 Pro with unboxing and specifications. So The Redmi Note 9 Pro by Xiaomi has been certified in China Chinese Ministry of Industry and information has certified.
So in terms of design liquor from China say Xiaomi is working on a smartphone with Redmi branding. It is having a center punch hole design which is the latest trend right now. Samsung A51, A71 and also the Galaxy Note 10 central punctual design. In my opinion it looks more symmetrical and I think that’s the reason why Xiaomi is going for such design.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro – Review
Disappointing part is it is still having the LCD Panel which is of course not great in comparison to Super AMOLED ones and Xiaomi often use LCD even the Redmi Note 8 Pro comes with LCD. So it’s no shocker they are going with the same technology but with different design instead of a notch. They are choosing the whole yeah they’ll save the Super AMOLED for the flagships and will use LCD in the budget line up.
The sleeker also says the upcoming Redmi Smartphone may support 33 watts of fast charging. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro gets 18 watts. So that’s a huge jump in my opinion but real me with their hoop charging is just nailing it down. So Xiaomi have to do something and the Note 9 Pro may get it done.
He has also posted the blurry rear panel of upcoming redmi smartphone this doesn’t show case much however it reveals that it is coming with roundish camera module like Nokia and Motorola on the back panel they showcased triple cameras on back with LED flash.
He says the primary shooter is of 64 mega pixel that means Xiaomi is likely using Sony’s 64 megapixel shooter. I don’t think they’ll use the Samsung’s cause they’re already in the Redmi Note 8 pro.
Well see in terms of the specification since the listing says it is 4g you can expect this snapdragon 730g cpu. I hope this time charm you won’t use MediaTek.
Second news coming in about the black Shack 3 Gaming centric flagship smartphone from Xiaomi. The shark 3 is coming with 90 Hertz Emily display from Samsung. Xiaomi won’t be using 120 Hertz in this one this is a flagship smartphone.
So there will be the snapdragon 865 cpu. He has so many flex ships this is confusing this year xiaomi will be launching for flagships in different segments. The Alpha flagship K 30 Pro main flagship me 10 gaming centric flagship. The black shark 3 and finally concept flagship remix 5.
Redmi Note 9 Pro – First Look & Unboxing
So we’re gonna be unboxing taking a first look at a highly awaited phone. It’s the Redmi Note 9 Pro. So without wasting any time let’s quickly get started the Redmi Note 9 Pro is something that has become a your evolution infact Xiaomi with the Redmi series has become the top-selling smartphone in all over the world.
So we will go through some of the specs of this phone because this is really new for us as well. So let’s get into it so in the box it’s pretty typical you do get the phone itself you do get this gear case which is nice. It’s a good protection out of the box right.
What is inside the Box?
When the phone launches you can see the Quad Camera Setup on the phone. We’ll talk a little bit more about that in a minute also inside the box is an 18 watt charger and a USBC cable and that’s it you also get a sim ejector tool some documentation but that’s about it.
Look and Colors
It’s fairly basic pretty much like every other any device that Xiaomi will launch now with this if we talk about the you look at the phone. It looks very identical to the POCO X2 with respect to design the fingerprint sensor placement on the power button but there are three colors here.
- Interstellar Black
- Aurora Blue
- Glacier White
So you can sort of pick between those personally I would go for the Interstellar Black which is sort of a grey but this Aurora Blue is also something that a lot of people will pick now.
Gorilla Glass Protection
On the outside you have Gorilla Glass 5 on the back as well as on the front. There is a P2i coating and the ports are also coated with a special material to avoid corrosion which again right me did a couple of series back. I think with the 7 and now with the 9.
It’s still continuous because especially in India in certain coastal areas ports tend to corrode quite quickly because of the humidity in the air.
Now if we talk about the display it is a 6.67 inch display with the 2400 by 1080 pixel resolution. It is a 20 is the 9 aspect ratio and it is an IPS Display and like I mentioned there is Gorilla Glass 5 on the front.
Front Camera Setup
Now the front has a punch hole camera directly in the center of the screen. A lot of people prefer this as opposed to the right or the left of the screen. I also personally kind of liked it in the center of the screen. So on the front you do have a 16 megapixel camera. It does have all the AI features that you would typically get from a Redmi or Mi devices.
You will get that on this phone as well now on the bottom you do have a 3.5 mm headphone jack, USB C port, Microphone pinhole and a speakerphone which is located over here on the right very identical to the POCO X2.
Finger Print Sensor
You have the power button fingerprint sensors Integrated into the power button and then you also have the volume rocker on the top you have a secondary noise cancellation microphone and an IR port or an IR blaster.
Infrared – IR Blaster (Remote Control)
So if you want to control your televisions your air conditioner you can download the Mi Remote app which should already be pre-installed on this. I assume if it’s not you can easily download it from the Mi Store and then control your air conditioning, your television etc directly from this so it becomes like a universal remote for you.
On the left is the SIM tray there are three slots dedicated micro SD card slot dual sim slot. So no issues with respect to whether you want a lower storage option. You can always pop in a microSD card it won’t eat into your SIM card now.
Back Camera Setup
On the back is where all the action is so to speak you get Four cameras One is a 48 megapixel which is the main camera is the Samsung ISO cell GM 2 camera with an F 1.79 aperture 6 element lens. They have something called super stabilization.
So it’s using digital as well as optical stabilization and it also does 4k video but only at 30 frames per second a little bit of it letdown but I’ll tell you why that’s happening and then you also get 960 fps super slo-mo something that Samsung has been doing and this is the Samsung sensor.
So you’ll be easily able to do that the other camera is an 8 megapixel ultra wide camera and that has a 120 degree field of view. You still can’t negate the super stabilization so a mix of digital optical happening there. There is a 5 megapixel macro the company talks about how a lot of people complained about the 2 megapixel macro one of them was Mi so the 5 megapixel macro becomes usable for even social media or even sharing with your friends etc.
5 megapixel macro shot will be quite useful for that and the last sensor more or less a depth sensor they could technically use a macro sense as a depth sensor. So they don’t really need 4 cameras but I guess it’s more symmetrical and it looks nice.
So there is a dedicated depth sensor that will be activated if you are taking some portrait shots etc everything else on the back is completely empty. You do have a Redmi logo in the glass as well on the back also Gorilla Glass 5.
I mentioned P2i quoting no real water resistance. If you tend to drop it in a puddle or something and quickly remove it. It should survive over the company doesn’t want you to sort of put this in water but because the p2i coating initially at least till the coating wears off it should be good to go for a long time.
Software & Applications
Now out of the box you get Miui 11.3 but a software update should be pushed out before this phone becomes publicly available. We still have a pre-release phone over here. It is running on android 10 out of the box. Miui pretty standard stuff lots of apps. So a little bit of bloat way here but most of it is removable.
So if you want to get rid of some of these blow taps you can you do get certain Mi apps which are now becoming more popular. Mi pay some radio apps some local sort of partnerships with Xiaomi. You can get rid of those there is still this whole thing with ads happening on the phone.
I am not pretty happy with that I don’t know why Xiaomi doesn’t want to get rid of that but you still get quite a lot of ads on other Miui. You can turn off ad options in the beginning but there are certain areas where you still continue to get ads. There are workarounds but out of the box that is going to happen.
Processor Chipset & Cores
The big difference between the POCO X2 and this Redmi Note 9 Pro is going to be the Qualcomm snapdragon 720G chipset that has the 730 this has the 720. It has an octa-core processor with 2.3 gigahertz on the speed. You also get the Etrigan or 618 GPU an eight nanometer chip.
It’s pretty impressive with respect to what this phone is going to be priced at is what I’m thinking is going to be priced under the pro 4×2. So the top variant of this and the base variant of the poco x2 might clash with respect to price but the base variant of this will be quite a ways away from the poco X 2 and hence the 720 chip
because if you want an upgrade you will go for the poco x2 but if you want something cheaper you will go for the 720 G and that is what I think xiaomi redmi poco are sort of planning. So that they can cover the entire spectrum of the marketplace.
Storage & Memory
So good positioning for this I think if the pricing is right and we’ll have the pricing details along with the buying links in the description below as soon as this phone is available. So click those or to sort of get a chance to get this device if you are interested in buying this other things include a 4 gigabyte or a 6 gigabyte option along with 64 gigabyte or 128 gigabyte for storage.
Like I mentioned you can get the 4 gigabyte with 64 gigabyte of storage. If you don’t need the additional RAM and then pop in a micro SD card to get some more storage. If you want the additional RAM 6 gigabyte with 128 and then you can pop in some more micro SD storage.
AI Camera Setup (Reality of 48MP)
If that’s something that you need the cameras at first glance seemed really interesting of the camera UI is what you would see from Xiaomi typically there is an AI camera mode along with some new filters there’s also a pro color option in the camera app the 48 megapixel short uses the ISO cell technology from Samsung.
So you’re not really getting it true 48 megapixel but it’s more like a 12 megapixel with quad pixels sort of pushed in together to make a larger pixel. So all of this will sort of add into experience that you will get now at a price which sort of matches the previous redmi phones.
So this is going to be a good placement for the phone and with some of the other competitors out there this would be a good position for Xiaomi to be act now. We’ll be testing this device in depth and we’ll have a review out for you guys by the time this article goes out. So you’ll see the full review but if you do have any particular questions or queries about the Redmi Note 9 Pro and if you’d like us to test out something do let us know in the comment section below.
