Redmi Note 9 Pro: Hardware Performance
The Redmi Note 9 Pro is one of the first phones to launch in India with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC, which is an octa-core processor based on 8nm fabrication, which makes it an energy-efficient one. Besides, the phone offers 4/6GB of LPDDR4x RAM along with 64/128GB of onboard storage based on UFS 2.1 technology.
In terms of normal day-to-day usage, the Redmi Note 9 Pro is one of the best performing phones at the asking price. Similarly, it can also play games like PUBG without any issue with the higher frame rate (around 60fps).
Redmi Note 9 Pro: Camera Performance
The Redmi Note 9 Pro has a quad-camera setup at the back of the smartphone with a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide angle lens, 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the device uses a 16MP selfie camera with support for face unlock.
In daylight and well-lit conditions, the Redmi Note 9 Pro takes some really good looking photos with a lot of detail, and taking a photo in 48MP mode will further improve the detailing on the image quality. The primary camera and the ultra-wide angle cameras on the Redmi Note 9 Pro are optically stabilized, which ensures a non-blurry image.

The base variant of the Redmi Note 9 Pro retails for Rs. 12,999 and offers 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Similarly, the high-end variant of the Redmi Note 9 Pro comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The entry-level model makes an excellent value-for-money proposition, especially considering the features and specifications it offers.
However, it does feel like the company is charging a lot (Rs. 3,000) to be exact for an additional 2GB of RAM and double the storage. In fact, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is cheaper than the Redmi Note 9 Pro and you can always go for that model if you want more RAM and not the storage.
