The brand-new entry-level smartphone touts major upgrades from its predecessor, including an all-purpose AI quad-camera set up, 6.53’’ FHD+ Dot Drop display, powerful chipset and edgy design.
As the first entry-level Redmi smartphone to feature an all-purpose quad-camera set up, Redmi 9 helps capture life’s special moments. Choose between a quick snap, wide- angle group shot, close-up with stunning details, or beautiful portrait photos, Redmi 9 has you covered. The device also integrates fun and creativity into your photography with premium camera features, including kaleidoscope and palm shutter.
Enjoy better viewing as well with Redmi 9’s bigger and better screen. Featuring a 6.53-inch FHD+ Dot Drop display, Redmi 9 offers an optimal visual experience with crystal-clear detail at your fingertips. It also comes with TÜV Rheinland low blue light certification and Corning Gorilla Glass for on-the-go protection.
The Redmi 9 also sports an optimized MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, delivering a 207 percent improved performance compared to its predecessor. Paired with a 5020mAh (typ) large capacity battery, the Redmi 9 packs the power you need for everyday work and play. It even supports 18W fast charging technology to keep your sideline time to a minimum so you can get back in the game.
It also doesn’t skimp out on style. With more features to love, the Redmi 9 leverages a chic gradient color design on the back and an anti-fingerprint ripple texture. The rear fingerprint sensor is specially designed to sit beside the camera set, and surrounded by a trendy circle design featured on Redmi’s current smartphone lineup. Altogether, this makes Redmi 9 even more comfortable to hold and unlock.
This new offering from Xiaomi also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an IR blaster, while supporting dual SIM usage and an additional microSD card slot. With Redmi 9, users don’t have to compromise – they can have it all.
