Features of the Redmi Note 9
High-performance Helio G85
Every time I hear that a new phone has been released, one of the things I look out for is the gaming experience and the processor. The Note 9 is equipped with a high-end octa-core processor that can clock a maximum speed of 2GHz.
If you are a gamer or someone who loves playing games on your mobile phone, the Redmi Note 9 has a GPU frequency of 1000MHz that makes your gaming experience second to none. Being in sports, action, adventure, or any type of game, the Redmi Note 9 has you covered.
48MP Quad Camera Arrangement + 13MP Selfie Camera
At the back of the Redmi Note 9, you will find the beautiful quad-camera layout with a flashlight next to it. The primary 48MP sensor can take outstanding photos no matter the time of the day.
The three remaining cameras, the wide-angle, macro, and depth respectively, always ensures your photo is as perfect as it could ever be. Although nothing is perfect, these three (3) cameras are made to assist the primary camera to deliver the beautiful result you wish for.
Aside from these three sensors working together as a unit, they all have specific duties they perform. The 8MP ultra-wide sensor can now capture panoramic photos with a 118-degrees field of view. The 2MP depth sensor helps to achieve the right amount of depth of field to deliver a beautiful photo. Finally, with the 2MP Macro lens, you capture everything in detail.
The front of the screen houses the 13MP front (selfie) camera. The selfie camera has several features that make it unique from some of the rest; these include adjust background blur, AI Beautify, Special effect, etc.
Powerful 5020mAh Battery
The battery powering the Redmi Note 9 is a massive 5020mAh battery with the mileage you’ve never seen in the Redmi Note series. Also, the battery has a fast-charging system and supports 9W wired reverse charging.
The battery can last for 171 hours of non-stop music playback, 34 hours of calling, 14 hours of continuous navigation, and 12 hours of active gaming. This is very huge as compared to some of the leading smartphones in the world.
6.53” FHD+ DotDisplay
The Note 9 has one of the largest screen displays in the world (correct me if I’m wrong). Due to the notch-less DotDisplay design, you have a big-screen interface for what you may use it for.
For gamers, photo lovers, and those who use their phones for meetings, you have enough space to do exactly that. All you have a clear view of what you are looking for as a result of the 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution and a pixel density of 395ppi (pixel per inch).
