After launching Redmi Note 9 lineup Xiaomi is already heading up for its entry-level offering. The Xiaomi Redmi 9 brings a quad-camera setup, a pretty good if not amazing chipset, and a price tag to match its other budget handset.
One of the significant upgrades here is that it gets a Full HD+ resolution over the HD+ on the Redmi 8. The panel measures 6.53-inch diagonally and has a Gorilla Glass 3 protection with an 89.83% screen-to-body ratio.
About that chipset we were talking about, it’s the Helio G80 that goes with either 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage. The phone also supports two nano-SIM cards and a dedicated microSD card slot for expansion up to 512GB.
The back of the Redmi 9 has four cameras with the main one being a 13MP f/2.2 sensor paired alongside 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide shooter with 118-degree FoV, a 5MP f/2.4 macro lens and finally a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the 8MP f/2.0 sensor inside the waterdrop notch will do the job.
As with most of the budget Redmi phones, this one also carries a chunky 5,020mAh battery with 18W fast charging support, albeit you have to buy the supporting charging brick separately. Fortunately, the port is USB-C, while there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack. Besides that, there’s support for Bluetooth 5.0, FM Radio, and NFC.
The phone is available in Xiaomi Spain’s website in three color options: Black, Purple, and Green. As for the pricing, the 3/32GB variant will cost €149, whilst the 4/64GB will go for €179.
For the price in Nepal, we expect the Redmi 9 to go for anywhere between Rs. 13,000 to 15,000.
