Xiaomi is often credited with bringing high-end specs and features at a new lower price. The new Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G breaks all previous records with specifications well above its price band. It joins the Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 4G, touching many segments at once.

Readers in India may remember the cell phone with the same name launched a few months ago, that is. Redmi Note 9 5G, 9 Pro and 9 Pro Max. The device was never sold in China, which left some awkward gaps in the naming scheme. To fill that gap, the new Redmi Note 9 series launched today is for the Chinese market only. Basically the name is the same but the product is different in different regions.

There are rumors that they will be launched in India as the Redmi Note 10 series in early 2021, but information about it is scarce at the moment.

Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G  is the first device in the entire history of the series to be 5G capable, thanks to the new Snapdragon 750G chipset. It also moves to a 6.67-inch screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, making it one of the cheapest phones to do so. It has the same AdaptiveSync technology that debuted on the Mi 10T range, allowing the display to scale between six different refresh rates for better efficiency.

It’s also the cheapest phone with a 108MP camera by a fair margin, marking the debut of the new 1 / 1.52-inch Samsung ISOCELL HM2 image sensor with 9-in-1 pixel array. This is paired with a camera. 13MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front is a 16MP selfie camera. Other specifications include a 4,820 mAh battery with 33 W fast charge support.
