The Redmi Note 9 series has been confirmed to make its debut on March 12, as Xiaomi‘s independent Redmi brand’s next smartphones. In spite of the fact that the tech giant has stayed entirely secretive about the monikers of the gadgets in the Redmi Note 9 lineup, there are rumours in the open already that there will be two models in the lineup namely; Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.
A new Redmi smartphone believed to be the Redmi Note 9 Pro has been spotted on the US FCC’s website. The listing provides us with some insight into some of the key specifications that the device would have.
As found on the listing table, the alleged Redmi Note 9 Pro arrives with the model number M2003J6A1G. The FCC certification shows that the Redmi Note 9 Pro will pack a monstrous 4,920mAh battery, which will have provision for up to 30W quick charging. Moreover, the Redmi Note 9 Pro will run on Android 10 OS from the get go with an overlay of the company’s in-house MIUI 11 ROM.
In terms of the internals, the Redmi Note 9 Pro had earlier appeared on GeekBench database and is tipped to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset. The processor is paired with 6GB of RAM which is the only RAM size we know as of now. When it comes to the Geekbench performance, the smartphone achieved a single-core test score 569 and a multi-core test score of 1,755 points.
A separate leak also appeared on Twitter giving us a more elaborate detail of the Redmi Note 9 Pro specs. The leak touts a 6.67-inch FHD+ display with 60Hz refresh rate and 20:9 aspect ratio. The display will have a punch-hole design that will house a Samsung GG5 selfie camera which will support 960fps slo-mo video recording. The device is confirmed to be powered by a Snapdragon 720G SoC and will have a base memory configuration of 4GB RAM + 64GB storage.
Other details include a 5,020mAh battery with 18W fast charge support. More importantly, this contrasts with the 30W fast charge support tipped by Stuffslisting. In addition, the Note 9 Pro will pack a quad camera setup consisting of a Samsung GM2 main sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor, a 5-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The camera configuration somehow looks inferior to the Redmi Note 8 Pro. So, we expect the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max to be the actual upgrade of the Redmi Note8 Pro.
We’ll have to wait for more details to emerge as the launch date draws nearer.
