If you're not familiar with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro, the phone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 720G from Qualcomm with 6GB of RAM and a respectable 128GB of storage.

Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is the highest-end model among the newly launched phones. This phone has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is also available in 3 RAM / internal storage variants. It is the Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor that was unveiled in September earlier this year. A 48MP primary camera is present on the back along with other sensors like 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and 2MP depth sensor. The display boasts a 2400 x 1080-pixels resolution, 240Hz touch response rate, HDR10 support, and a punch-hole cutout with a 16MP selfie sensor at the center. The silicone strap is available in black, white, blue, green and pink. The price of the 8GB RAM / 128GB storage variant is 1,799 yuan (about 20,210 rupees).

The Redmi Note 9 4G has a 6.53-inch LCD display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The smartphone draws power from MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset, clubbed with up to 8GB RAM. The 4G variant has a beefier 6,000mAh battery that also has support for 18W fast charging.

Both the devices run Google's Android 10 operating system with the company's own MIUI 12 custom ROM fork on top.

On the back is a quad camera setup consisting of a 108MP primary sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. Upfront, it houses a 16-megapixel camera setup for selfies and video calls. To the front, we get a 6.53-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display with the same 1080×2340 pixels resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 technology.

It has dual speakers and a triple camera setup on the rear. It is coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor with a 118-degree FOV and a 2MP macro lens. On the other hand, the Redmi Note 9 comes with an 8MP selfie shooter that sits in a notch.

The 8 GB + 128 GB variant is sold at CNY 1,299 (approximately Rs 14,560), 8 GB + 256 GB will cost Rs 1,499 (approximately Rs 16,801).
