After all the leaks and teasers, Redmi has finally launched the Note 9 lineup in China. The new lineup consists of three phones. In this post, we will take a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G in Nepal.
Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G Overview
The device sports a 6.67-inch FHD display. It is an IPS LCD panel with a punch-hole on the top center to house the selfie camera. The screen is slightly bigger than its smaller sibling Redmi Note 9 5G.
The major talking point of the device is its 120Hz refresh rate. Similarly, the touch sampling rate here is 240Hz. The screen is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. As with the Redmi Note 9 5G, the brightness can get as low as 1 nit for comfortable viewing at night time.
At the back, Redmi has included a circular camera module that houses the triple camera setup. The rear panel has a gradient finish to it. The Redmi branding towards the bottom is also subtle which is not the case with the Redmi Note 9 4G.
Performance and 5G
Under the hood, the new Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G features Snapdragon 750G. It features 2 Cortex A77 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six Cortex A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The graphics are handled by Adreno 619. The chipset also has Qualcomm’s 5th Generation AI Engine. The chipset features the same integrated 5G modem as in the Snapdragon 765G. The 360-degree antenna setup includes 11 different 5G antennas placed around the body of the phone.
While the Redmi Note 9 5G comes with 7 different temperature sensors, the Pro variant comes with three more sensors. The intelligent system on the phone samples the device temperature against the test data and applies the optimal thermal solution. Similarly, Redmi claims that the three-dimensional liquid cooling system on the Pro variant can keep the temperature down by up to 5-degrees Celsius.

Another talking point of the device is its 108MP quad-camera setup. Xiaomi has opted for Samsung Isocell HM2 sensor for the primary camera. It is a 1/1.33” sensor with support for the 9-in-1 pixel binning technique. The device has dual-native ISO and an improved night mode (Super Night View 2.0) for better low light photography.
It is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide sensor. Completing the quad-camera setup are two 2MP cameras, one for portrait and the other for macro photography.
On the front, there is a 16MP selfie camera that can take 1080P videos at up to 30fps. It also comes with an EIS stabilization.
Rest of the specs
Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is backed by a 4,820mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging. The 33W fast charger can charge the device from 0 to 100% in just 58 minutes. The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the right side of the device. As with most of the Redmi devices, it comes with an IR sensor. The phone also has dual-stereo speakers and a linear motor that is optimized for 100 different scenarios.
