Xiaomi has officially launched its Redmi Note 9 series alongside the new Mi Note 10 Lite globally. An online event was held to make the announcement as public gatherings are prohibited around the world due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Out of the Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro, the latter has been announced in India back in March. However, the phone is yet to be available for purchase in the country as e-commerce companies have been prohibited from delivering non-essential products including mobile phones.
The Redmi Note 9 is priced starting at $199 (~ Rs 14,900) for the base variant with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage, moving up to $249 (~ Rs 18,700) for the 4GB RAM and 128GB storage option. It goes on sale sometime in mid-May.
On the other hand, the Note 9 Pro starts at $269 (~ Rs 20,200) for the variant with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage while the 128GB variant will retail for $299 (~Rs 22,499) globally.
Redmi Note 9 features a 6.53-inch display with a Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution and a punch-hole cutout in the top left corner for the front-facing camera. The screen is protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 5. It has a plastic build and is 8.9mm at its thickest point, weighing in a decent 199 grams. There’s a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel, just below the camera array.
It is powered by MediaTek Helio G85 chipset with an octa-core CPU and Mali-G52 graphics to boot. This is paired with 3GB/4GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options to choose from. It runs on MIUI 11 out of the box that is based on Android 10.

The screen is topped with Gorilla Glass 5 for added protection.
It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset with an octa-core CPU and Adreno 618 GPU. This is paired with 6GB RAM and upto 128GB storage options. Unlike the Redmi Note 9, the Pro variant has a side-mounted fingerprint reader for faster access.
The Note 9 Pro has a 64MP primary camera that’s supported by an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The rear cameras can do 4K UHD videos at 30fps and slow-motion videos at upto 960fps. On the front, there’s a 16MP selfie camera housed within the punch-hole notch.
It comes fitted with a 5,020mAh battery with support for 30W fast charging and a 33W adapter is provided in-the-box.
Alongside the Redmi Note 9 series, the company also unveiled the Mi Note 10 Lite. It features a 6.47-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution AMOLED screen with a waterdrop notch cutout for the front camera. The screen is also home to an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset with an octa-core processor. This is paired with 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options to choose from.
