Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro is a much better smartphone than its sibling which goes by the name Max. In our review of Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, we mentioned how the difference between two devices boils down to one element. If you want really fast charging then Max is a good option. Otherwise, Redmi Note 9 Pro is great and also more affordable. To recall, both the devices launched in March but went on sale in a proper way only in May.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro follows the trend and comes equipped with a 6.67-inch Full HD+ punch-hole display. Xiaomi is not supporting faster refresh rate and the panel supports 60Hz refresh rate and 120Hz touch response. Inside the punch-hole camera, there is a 16-megapixel selfie shooter. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G mobile platform, the Redmi Note 9 Pro comes with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage. It also supports a dedicated storage slot and has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The reason to get this over the Max is the 48-megapixel main camera on the back with Samsung GM2 sensor. In our review, we observed how the sensor helps with better details and dynamic range. This sensor, in our opinion, is better than the 64-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL GW1 if you care for details. It is paired with an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera offering a 120-degree field of view. Xiaomi is also updating the macro shooter with a new 5-megapixel sensor. The whole setup is rounded off with a 2-megapixel depth sensor for portrait effects.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro is a worthy successor to Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Note 8 Pro before it. Like its predecessors, the smartphone is also splash proof thanks to the P2i coating. Xiaomi has also added an anti-corrosion layer for internal components. The smartphone is also amongst the first to feature support for NavIC, which relies on Indian satellites for navigation. The smartphone packs a 5,020mAh battery and supports 18W fast charging compatible with any PD charger.
