At long last, the much-awaited Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 and Note 9 Pro have finally made their way to the Philippines.

The Redmi Note 9 is powered by the latest MediaTek Helio G85 processor and is available in 3GB/64GB and 4GB/128GB RAM and storage options.


A 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS screen is seen on the front, with a punch-hole on the top left for the 13-megapixel selfie camera. A quad-camera setup is seen on the back, led by a 48-megapixel and 8-megapixel ultra-wide.

The Note 9 also comes with a generous 5,020mAh battery. Without a doubt, this will go head to head against the Realme 6 series.


The Redmi Note 9 has a price of Php7,990 in the Philippines for the 3GB/64GB model, while the 4GB/128GB variant is at Php9,990. It will be available via the Xiaomi Global Store in Shopee on May 27 at 12 AM with a Php500 discount on the 3GB/64GB model. It will then hit the Xiaomi Flagship Store in Lazada starting June 4 at 12AM with the same introductory discount for the base model.
