Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Xiaomi, which took place in August 2020 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2020). This is a new model Xiaomi Redmi 9 (India) — dual smartphone works on Android 10, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. Xiaomi Redmi 9 (India) has not received support for 5G networks, but this does not mean that this model is bad and does not deserve your attention. Look at all the features of this smartphone and its price. It is possible that you will like it very much and will be suitable for purchase today. And after one or two years, when you choose the next new smartphone, then on the page of all 5G smartphones in our catalog you will see hundreds of smartphones from many manufacturers at different prices.

Screen, body and battery

In the case Xiaomi Redmi 9 (India) thickness 9 mm is placed battery for 5 000 mAh and a very large IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 6.53″. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Xiaomi Redmi 9 (India). The main camera got several modules (dual camera smartphones): 13 MP Wide + 2 MP Depth sensor. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.

The front camera has one module: 5 MP Wide. Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone received 8-core processor Helio G35. If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Xiaomi Redmi 9 (India) received 4 GB of RAM.

And there are options with built-in memory. You can choose 64 GB or 128 GB. Supported memory cards microSDXC.

Price for Xiaomi Redmi 9 (India): buy or not to buy?

In August 2020 begin sales of a new smartphone Xiaomi Redmi 9 (India). The manufacturer said the price of $120 without taxes and fees. And what we get for this money, let′s summarize all the main characteristics. The smartphone has a huge touch screen, a good main camera, a weak front camera, a super capacious battery and a cherry on the cake is a powerful processor.

As a result, in 2020 this was a good smartphone in terms of price-performance ratio, and now we advise you to see other smartphones from the same price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” or go to DROID smartphones page, where we always keep the current (Android OS) models of smartphones on sale. And before buying, we always advise you to go to an offline electronics store to hold the smartphone in your hands and be sure that you like it. Why do we advise so? Because creating this catalog of smartphones and filling it with photos of models, we are very well aware of the differences between beautiful selling photos from real smartphones, which then the buyers hold in their hands.
