With the Redmi 9, Xiaomi is offering the basic features you need from a smartphone. The new model goes for modern design cues with a squarish camera module and a new matte texture. This is in stark contrast to the glossy design of the Redmi 8 from last year. The phone still carries a 6.3-inch HD+ display with a small waterdrop notch on the top. The fingerprint sensor has gone to the back of the phone. Also Read - Poco M2 Pro vs Redmi Note 9 Pro: क्या है अंतर और कौन सा फोन है दमदार

Instead of the Snapdragon 439 chipset, the phone comes with a MediaTek Helio G35 chipset. This is paired with 4GB RAM as standard across the board. Buyers can choose between 64GB and 128GB onboard storage. One can also expand the storage to 512GB via a micro SD card slot. Xiaomi is shipping the phone with the latest MIUI 12 based on Android 10.

The Redmi 9 retains the 5000mAh battery from the Redmi 8 from last year. However, the new model drops the 18W fast charging system and settles for a 10W wired charging system. Additionally, the phone also ditches the USB-C port in favour of a micro-USB port. Xiaomi has included the P2i water-repellant coating and pre-installed a screen protector.

When it comes to the cameras, the Redmi 9 sports a 5-megapixel camera at the front for taking selfies. For the rear cameras, there’s a dual-camera setup at the back. The main camera is using a 13-megapixel sensor whereas the second camera is a 2-megapixel depth camera.
