The body design of the Redmi Note 9 Pro resembles what we saw in the Redmi Note in 2019. The screen and back are made of Gorilla Glass 5. The body frame is plastic. The "chin" is visually thicker than the one in the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
On the body, we notice a small revolution. It is about the fingerprint sensor with a cover, which is now located in the power button of the device.
If you are a fan of smartphones with a certain weight, then you should know that the Redmi Note 9 Pro and its Max version are the heaviest models in the history of the Note series. They weigh 209 grams.
Redmi Note 9 Pro can be found in the market in three colors - blue, white and black.
A key change to the Redmi Note 9 Pro's display is the abandonment of notches. This element appeared in the sixth generation and in the next two transformed into a "drop". Now the Redmi Note 9 Pro has received a modern "eye" cut into the screen.
This Redmi Note model will win over users with an IPS matrix with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The screen has grown from the previous generation - now its diagonal is 6.67 inches. It offers high contrast and brightness threshold.
In the Redmi Note 9 Pro, the developers have relied on a fresh 8nm Snapdragon 720G processor coupled with an Adreno 618 video accelerator. The result is satisfactory performance by today's standards. It guarantees maximum graphics settings.
RAM is 4 GB and internal storage is 64 GB. A microSD memory card slot comes to the aid of users. It works simultaneously with 2 SIM cards.
You won't find an NFC chip in the Redmi Note 9 Pro. For some reason, the Chinese company has abandoned contactless payment in this model of theirs. The 3.5mm audio jack has been retained.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro features four sensors in the main photomodule. The main camera has a resolution of 64 MP. The other sensors are taken from the previous generation - 8 MP wide-angle, 5 MP macro and 2 MP for bokeh effect.
The front camera of the Redmi Note 9 Pro is a 16-megapixel one. With this phone, you can record videos at 1080 pixels resolution.
The ninth generation Redmi Note is a real hit when it comes to autonomous operation. It has got a 5020 mAh battery. The user can count on continuous interaction with the smartphone within 10-12 hours.
Thanks to the powerful state-of-the-art processor, ample RAM and up-to-date interface, the Redmi Note 9 Pro demonstrates high performance and excellent speed. Additional pluses are the representative appearance, beautiful color solutions and simultaneous support of 2 SIM cards and memory card. To the cons we can refer the absence of NFC and low protection against moisture and dust.
If you are planning to buy a budget smartphone for everyday use, entertainment, taking photos and videos, this model is an ideal solution.
