for Xiaomi, Redmi Notes has been very popular for many years. Monday, smartphone manufacturers Redmi Note 9 was launched in the country A few months after its global launch. Until 2019, the first Redmi Note phone itself came out in the first half of this year, but this year’s Redmi Note 9 came too late, because of Xiaomi’s strategic changes.
The company did not release the successor products of Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro, but released Redmi Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro Max earlier this year. Xiaomi claims that these two phones have received a huge response from Indian consumers and hopes that the new Note will also achieve the same effect.
In general, if we compare Redmi Note 9 with the previous Redmi Note 8, the new Note will undergo many upgrades, but there will also be some downgrades.
Let’s compare the latest Note 9 with the long-established Redmi Note 8 and see if Redmi Note 9 is better than the previous version.
Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 8: Downgrade
Compared with Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 8’s plastic back panel and mirror frame look more premium. Recall that compared to Redmi Note 7, Xiaomi was one of the first companies to bring glass back to the price range. When most expensive phones have glass back covers, the plastic back panels are disappointing.
In terms of overall design, the Redmi Note 9 looks almost the same as the Redmi Note 9 Pro series with a square rear camera design. This looks messy because of the rear fingerprint sensor under the module. Recall that Xiaomi was one of the first companies to offer an under-screen fingerprint sensor at a price of less than Rs 10,000. Redmi Note 8 includes an in-display fingerprint sensor, but does not include the new Note.
The camera is the same area of Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 8. Both phones include a 48MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide sensor, 2MP macro and 2MP depth. No upgrades can be seen on the front. Both phones are equipped with a 13MP selfie camera. The only difference on the front is that Redmi Note 8 has a water drop slot, while Note 9 has a hole punch function.
Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 8: Upgrade
After the upgrade, compared with Redmi Note 8, the new Note includes a larger screen, a powerful processor, a larger battery and fast charging support. In contrast, Redmi Note 9 is equipped with a 6.55-inch dot display, and Redmi Note 8 is equipped with a 6.3-inch notched display.
Redmi Note 8 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, but for Redmi Note 9, Xiaomi chose MediaTek. This phone is equipped with MediaTek Helio G85, which the company claims provides excellent performance and processing power PUBG The mobility is good.
The battery is another area where Redmi Note 9 is superior to Redmi Note 8. The new Note comes with a 5020mAh battery and provides 22.5W fast charging support in the box. Redmi Note 8 comes with 4000mAh battery and 18W fast charging support out of the box.
Redmi Note phone with no less than Rs 10,000
Over the years, Redmi Note phones have been priced at Rs 9,999 in India. But this time the story is different. For the first time ever, the price of the Redmi Note phone starts at Rs 9,999. The phone arrived in India with a starting price of Rs 11,999. The reason for the price increase may be due to the increase in the country’s goods and services tax, which forced the company to increase the price of smartphones. The starting price of Redmi Note 9 is Rs 9,999, but after raising the GST, the current price of the phone is Rs 12,499.
