The Redmi Note 9 family is finally complete.

Joining the party is the Redmi Note 9. This vanilla model will complete Redmi’s smartphone line that consists of the Redmi Note 9 Pro, Note 9 Pro Max, and Note 9S.


The Note 9 is the first to use the new MediaTek Helio G85 octa-core processor. This latest chip sits between the Helio G80 and G90T. The device is available in 3GB/64GB and 4GB/64GB RAM and storage configuration.

A 6.53-inch FHD+ IPS screen populates the front of the device, with a punch-hole on the top left that houses a 13-megapixel selfie camera.


On the back, we have a similar camera design that houses a 48-megapixel Samsung GM1 sensor, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and two 2-megapixel sensors for macro and depth-sensing, respectively.

To keep it juiced up, the Note 9 is rigged with a generous 5,020mAh battery with 18W fast charging.
