Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has launched the Redmi Note 9 in an online event back in May. While the Note 9 Pro had already made a debut in Nepal last month, the company has announced this new member of the Note 9 series recently. It is the world’s first phone to be powered by the Helio G85 chipset. And now, it is finally here in Nepal. Let’s learn more about the Redmi Note 9 along with its availability and price in Nepal.
Getting to the specs, the Redmi Note 9 sports a 6.53- inch FHD+ IPS display with a hole-punch cutout on the top left. This big display gets its juice via the 5,020 mAh battery that supports 22.5 Watt quick charging. Moreover, you get the fast-charger inside the box itself! Camera-wise, we see a quad-camera setup in a rather different looking arrangement at the back which consists of a 48MP primary sensor followed by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor.
Likewise, at the front, you see a 13MP selfie cam. Taking of the internals, we get the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset running the show. You get Android 10 out of the box with MIUI 11 on top.
We get the standard Glass design in Note 9, like with previous Redmi devices. The front and the back are both protected by the Gorilla Glass 5. However, the frames are made up of plastic. For storage, one has two options to choose from, 64GB OR 128GB with room for expansion via a dedicated MicroSD slot.
Also, like with most budget and mid-range Xiaomi phones, you get splash resistance to help the device live longer. Similarly, the device has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, unlike its elder siblings. Not to miss, the phone features an IR blaster as well.
A powerful gaming-focused SoC!
As mentioned earlier, the MediaTek Helio G85 powers the phone. It is very similar to the Helio G80, which powers the Realme 6i. Like the G80, it has 2 powerful Cortex A75 cores and 6 energy-efficient Cortex A55 cores. The Mali G52 MC2 GPU takes care of the graphics.
The Redmi Note 9 goes head to head against the Realme 6 and Galaxy M20s when it launches in the south Asian market later this month. For me, the Realme 6 is a clear winner. It comes with a 90Hz refresh rate display and a much powerful Helio G90T chipset. However, we do need to perform a real-world test and compare these phones before giving a solid verdict. So, stay connect with us.
