Overview Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G
Android version and market relevance
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G was announced by the company Xiaomi in November 2020 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones Xiaomi Redmi. Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G works on Android 10, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G implemented support for working with two SIM cards and support for 5G networks (all 5G-smartphones).
And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2020” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G — this is the price segment page “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.
Screen, body and battery
By the size of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 6.53″ and with a punch-like notch for selfie camera and sensors.
Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G the case turned out very thick — 9.2 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 5 000 mAh. 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
The most important characteristics of Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G cameras: main camera received 48 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro, front camera got 13 MP with a regular lens. See examples of photos and videos from this smartphone to visually assess their quality. And the most interesting thing is that the main camera on the back of the body has several lenses (triple camera smartphones). That can do 2x zoom without losing quality. And with the help of at least two lenses, you can shoot portraits with the bokeh effect, this is when the background is blurred and the photo appears like depth. In this model, the selfie camera is on the front and you can see it. In 2019, smartphones were announced with a front camera, which is located inside the body and is not visible. When you need to take a photo, the front camera slides up from the body. You take your selfie, the photo is saved and then the camera goes down into the body. All smartphones with pop-up front camera from different producers at different prices are collected in the catalog. If you are interested in such models, we advise you to first watch video reviews about them, and then make a choice and buy.
Processor and Internal Memory
A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G received 8-core processor MediaTek Dimensity 800U 5G. The amount of RAM in it is 6 GB or 8 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 128/256 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 Note 9 5G: buy or not to buy?
$170 is the price for Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a cool selfie camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.
And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? Here is the case that it is in Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G that a very powerful battery is installed. And, if you need a smartphone with a very long mode of operation from one battery charge, then we recommend looking at this model, or similar smartphones with a powerful battery.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.

News Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G
It’s time to update the models in the Redmi Note series, so Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G replaced last year’s Redmi Note 8 Pro, and Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 4G instead of Redmi Note 8. These smartphones will already be on sale in China in December. The price of the Pro model has not changed (CNY 1,600 or $245), but its specifications have improved significantly (108MP camera, 120Hz screen, and so on). The Redmi Note 9 5G, also with improved specs, will be priced at CNY 1,300 or $200. And its 4G-only version will receive a CNY 1,000 or $150 price tag. So, it remains to say more about the Xiaomi Poco M3, which was announced at the end of November. The exterior of the case supports and even reinforces the design code of the entire series — on the rear panel there is a full-width rectangle for the main camera and the Poco inscription. The price of the model starts at $150.
