Honor 200 series Ad

Yesterday, Redmi launched the Redmi Note 9 series in China. The lineup consisted of three new devices different from the Note 9 devices available outside of China. The cheapest of the three is the Redmi Note 4G. It is also the only-non 5G device in the lineup. Let’s talk about the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Redmi Note 9 4G in Nepal.

Redmi Note 4G Overview

Design and Display

If you look at the spec-sheet, the Redmi Note 4G is similar to the recently launched Poco M3. However, Redmi has made some changes to the Note 4G in order to differentiate it from the M3.

The biggest change is in the design. In fact, from the back, the Redmi Note 4G looks nothing like any previous device from the company. The textured “Star Man” (machine-translated) looks something out of Realme’s design page. The latter happens to be Redmi’s biggest competition in the market.

On the front, there is an FHD+ IPS LCD screen with a diagonal size of 6.53-inch. It has a waterdrop notch on the top to house the selfie camera. Redmi is claiming a screen-to-body ratio of 90.34%.

Performance and Memory

Redmi Note 9 4G is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC. It has a maximum clock speed of 2.0GHz. The graphics are handled by Adreno 610 GPU. It is available in three RAM options – 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB. Also, one can choose between 128GB and 256GB of internal storage. The company is betting on the UFS 2.2 technology for faster read and write speed.


The phone flaunts a triple camera setup on the back. The 48MP primary camera and the 2MP depth sensor is the same that we saw in the Poco M3. However, Redmi has opted for an ultra-wide camera for the third sensor. It has a Field of View of 120-degree. In the Poco M3, there is a 2MP macro lens in its place. Using the rear cameras of the Redmi Note 4G, one can shoot 1080p videos at up to 30fps. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera. It is also capable of shooting 1080P videos at 30fps.
