Xiaomi has finally launched its most awaited budget friendly Redmi 9 in Spain recently and as expected it had almost all the specifications and features similar to the leaks rumoured around the internet earlier days before it’s launch.
The Xiaomi Redmi 9 adapts a similar design what we had already seen in Redmi K30 which is dubbed as POCO X2 in India. The device features a FHD+ display with a water notch design for front selfie camera with screen aspect ratio of 19.5:9, producing 400 nits of peak brightness and it is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 on front. It features a secure AI Face Unlock and a rear fingerprint scanner just below the camera setup.
The Redmi 9 is powered by the 12nm FinFET technology 2GHz MediaTek Helio G80 chip which is dubbed as a Gaming centric SoC providing the best experience for budget level smartphones. It comes with 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 32/64GB of eMMC 5.1 storage capable enough to take away all the day to day tasks smoothly and a dedicated microSD slot to further increase the storage.
In the camera department, the Xiaomi Redmi 9 has a Quad-Cam setup on back with a 13MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture, an 8MP 118° wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture, a 5MP f/2.5 macro camera, and a 2MP sensor for depth perception. The Rear camera features of this device include Kaleidoscope, ultra-wide-angle mode, macro mode, portrait mode, and supports 1080p at 30fps. On the front, the the device features a single 8MP f/2.0 aperture selfie camera with 77.8 degree field of view and included features sucha as palm shutter, portrait mode, HDR, screen flash, self-timer, and more.
Powered by a massive 5,020mAh battery the Redmi 9 has got a 18W Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support. But the box comes bundled with a 10W charger inside, which again makes buyers pay more for a compatible charger. The connectivity options include a 4G VoLTE, USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, FM Radio, NFC, GPS, AGPS, 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C port, and an inbuilt infrared sensor what almost all Xiaomi phones always get as an extra feature.
