Smartphone manufacturers like to watch the competition and borrow profitable ideas from them, changing them relatively slightly. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max was definitely created after evaluating the latest current offerings in the market. Its name testifies to this. This model carries the traits of all the best of the competition in the industry.
Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has the look of a phablet that copies the bestsellers of Huawei and Apple. We're familiar with the four photomodule square. The side fingerprint scanner, the rear glass panel executed in iridescent colors and the bezel-less display with front camera also evoke associations.
The rear surface is designed in iridescent colours - Interstellar Black, Aurora Blue and Glacier White.
The dimensions of the device are 165.5×76.68×8.8 mm.
This model has a satisfyingly large screen with a diagonal of 6.67 inches. It pleases with brightness, contrast and FullHD+ resolution. Good news is the presence of oleophobic coating on the IPS display.
The surface of the display is covered with tough Gorilla Glass 5. It is resistant to mechanical damage, but does not fully protect the casing from minor scratches.
The specs of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max are curious. The fresh Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor is built on an 8nm process and runs 6/8 GB of RAM and an Adreno 618 video adapter. This solution is ample for enjoyable playing of demanding games at maximum graphics settings. The internal storage is 64/128 GB, and you can expand it with a microSD memory card.
The main camera of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max consists of four modules - 64 MP, 8 MP, 5 MP and 2 MP. The standout is the Samsung GW1 module, which practically offers flagship-level photography in both daylight and dark. The 8MP sensor is designed for wide-angle shots at a 119-degree angle, the 5MP for macro shots, and the 2MP is tasked with measuring the depth of the frame. This combination achieves saturated photos with blurred backgrounds.
With the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max's camera, the user also gets quality video: 30 FPS 720p, 2160p (4K) and 1080p (FullHD) at 60 FPS.
The front camera in turn is 32 MP and provokes positive emotions again.
The cute and pleasantly large Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is equipped with a battery that does not provoke doubts in its performance. Its capacity is 5020 mAh. It is ample for 2-3 days of work without a thought of recharging. In standby mode, the charge will last for 6-7 days. With constant use, the battery will need recharging after 12 hours. In talk mode you can count on up to 25 hours.
The manufacturer has provided 33W fast charging technology. In 30 minutes you replenish the charge up to 50%.
Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is a reliable and high-performance device at an affordable price. Its main merits should definitely include the battery capacity, NFC feature support, fast charging technology, stylish design and power. As disadvantages, some users may appreciate the absence of Always On Display and wireless charging.
