Redmi Note 9 Pro: Design

The Redmi Note 9 Pro is the latest Redmi Note series of smartphones from the company with a new design approach along with the best-in-class hardware. The smartphone has an all-glass design and it comes in Interstellar Black, Glacier White, and Aurora Blue color. At the front, the device has a massive 6.67-inch display with FHD+ resolution protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with a punch-hole cutout at the top. This is an IPS LCD screen that supports HDR streaming on YouTube.

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.

Redmi Note 9 Pro: Price To Specs Ratio

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.

Redmi Note 9 Pro: Important Features/Highlights

The Redmi Note 9 Pro comes with a massive 5,020 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging and the fast charging is included in the retail package. The battery can last up to an entire day even for heavy users. Another interesting feature of the Redmi Note 9 Pro is the fact that it comes with a premium glass design. The Redmi Note 9 Pro is also one of the first smartphones that support ISRO's NaViC navigation system, which makes it a future-ready smartphone. It also has a 3.5mm headphone and is P2i coated, which protects the device from accidental splashes.

Redmi Note 9 Pro: Verdict

The Redmi Note 9 Pro is an excellent smartphone that offers a huge value for money. This might not be that of an upgrade for those who already have the Redmi Note 8 Pro. However, if you have a previous version of the Redmi Note older than the Redmi Note 7 series, the Redmi Note 9 Pro makes it an excellent upgrade.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
