And Xiaomi Redmi 9 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

The company Xiaomi in June 2020 officially announced its new smartphone Xiaomi Redmi 9 in the series of mobile devices Xiaomi Redmi. In our subjective opinion, this year one of the important parameters for smartphones has become support for 5G networks, and this new model, unfortunately, it did not receive such an opportunity and will not be able to work in 5G networks. Therefore, if this is important to you, then go to our page in the catalog where all 5G smartphones are assembled.

“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 10, which did not receive any version updates. And besides, it is important to note immediately that the model Xiaomi Redmi 9 supports two SIM cards (view all smartphones with 2 sim cards in the catalog).

Screen, body and battery

Very capacious Xiaomi Redmi 9 battery received a volume of 5 020 mAh. In this case, the smartphone has huge touchscreen IPS LCD with diagonal 6.53″. As it is now fashionable in smartphone design, this model also received a drop-shaped cutout above the screen. And besides, the front panel is 80-90% occupied by the touchscreen.

The thickness of such a body with a screen from edge to edge is 9.1 mm. This is a very thick case, we advise you to look in our catalog smartphones with thin cases, which fit comfortably in your hand.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Xiaomi Redmi 9. The main camera got several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 13 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Macro + 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: 8 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

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Xiaomi Redmi 9 received 8-core processor Mediatek Helio G80. The amount of RAM in it is 3 GB or 6 GB, depending on which option you choose.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 32/64/128 GB. This is again different versions of your choice. The more memory, the more expensive the version of the smartphone. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSDXC, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Xiaomi Redmi 9: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is not the model you need to buy.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Xiaomi Redmi 9 will begin in June 2020 at a price of $130. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
