Redmi 9 Power is a budget-oriented device from the Xiaomi sub-brand that was launched in India towards the end of 2020. And now, it’s found its way to Nepal as well. In this post, we will be taking a look at the specs, features, official price, and availability of Redmi 9 Power in Nepal.
Redmi 9 Power Overview:
Design and Display
Starting with the display, Redmi 9 Power features a 6.53-inch IPS panel with an FHD resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. It results in an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The device has a waterdrop notch that houses the front camera and the bezels around the screen are also quite noticeable. Redmi has listed the device with 400 nits of typical brightness. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the front for added protection.
At the back, the new aura design is something new for Redmi devices. The device has a curved back with an anti-fingerprint texture. The rectangular camera bump has been made to look like it’s giving rise to light rays. Towards the bottom, there is a big Redmi branding slapped onto the panel.
Performance and Memory
The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC which definitely raises some eyebrows as it is said to replace a phone with MediaTek G80—namely, the Redmi 9 Prime. The performance gap between the two chips is negligible on everyday tasks but the G80 performs slightly better at games. On the other hand, the Snapdragon 662 is based on an 11nm process (compared to G80’s 12nm process). Thus, it is more power-efficient.
The device comes with 4 or 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM which can be paired with either 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage or 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage.
On to the cameras, Redmi 9 Power flaunts a quad-camera setup on the back. The headline here is the 48MP primary camera on the back. There is an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree Field of View (FOV). Similarly, the setup includes two 2MP camera sensors for macro and portrait shots, respectively. The rear camera setup comes with features such as Movie Frame, Time-Lapse, Night mode, and Color Focus.
On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera that supports AI beautification. As expected, the selfie camera resides inside a traditional notch up top.
Rest of the specs
The phone is fueled by a massive 6000mAh battery which the company claims is optimized for a lifespan of up to 3 years. It ships with a 22.5W charger even though it only supports charging speed up to 18W. You can also use it as a power bank as it has reverse charge support. The phone has stereo speakers with Hi-Res audio which is very difficult to find on a budget device. Similarly, Redmi is advertising the speakers as auto-cleaning just like the Redmi Note 8.
Redmi 9 Power has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and features an IR blaster too. It comes in four different color options – Mighty Black, Blazing Blue, Fiery Red, and Electric Green. Thankfully, all of these color variants are available in Nepal.
