The Redmi Note series has been a huge success in the South Asian market including Nepal. The brand recently launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro through an event in India. The phone should be launched in Nepal in the next couple of months and when we expect Xiaomi to charge aggressively for the Nepal Redmi Note 9 Pro.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Overview
Design and performance
The Redmi Note 9 Pro comes with a 6.67-inch dot display with FullHD + resolution. Due to its 20: 9 aspect ratio, the company calls it a Cinematic Screen. The circular cutout for the front camera is at the top centre of the screen. -Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro review
At the rear, there is a round-corner square module with a quad-camera setup. There is an LED flash on the outside of the camera module. This time, Redmi moved the fingerprint sensor backwards. Yes – the capacitive fingerprint sensor is now on the right. The device comes with round corners to prevent damage from accidental drops. The device has triple Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection that covers the front, rear and camera sensors. -Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro review
For software experience, it is currently running on MIUI 11 (the unit we have). However, Xiaomi should release the MIUI 12 update before the end of 2020. Everything from transformation to application loading is fast and fast. However, MIUI is repetitive compared to others, thanks to the 6GB of RAM and the Helio G90T chipset as you navigate through it. And we don’t even have advertising problems with parts of the UI, so Xiaomi seems to be taking care of it.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro came under the hood with Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G, and many have ulated that the Snapdragon Dimension 800 chipset is fitted with the Note 9 Pro. However, Redmi has added Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G to the device. This confused many people as they did not upgrade it to the Snapdragon 720G. But the company is supporting the 720G for better performance. You can choose between 4GB and 6GB of RAM. The former comes with 64GB storage and the latter comes with 128GB storage. -Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro review
The rear of the device comes with a quad-camera setup. The primary sensor here is the 48MP sensor. It comes with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, 5MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. The ultraviolet sensor delivers up to a 109-degree FOV. It comes with super stabilization with the primary sensor. You can take macro shots up to a focal distance of 2 cm.
At the front, there is a 16MP selfie camera inside a circular cutout at the top centre of the display.
And first of all, there are no improvements in the Note 8 Pro compared to the cameras on the Note 7 Pro. And to my surprise, I found that most of the pictures on the Note 8 Pro were better. Note 7 Pro has good dynamic range and exposure balance and sometimes good colours. – Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro review
I compared the Note 9 Pro with RealMe 6 Pro and didn’t find a clear winner. Sometimes the Realme 5 Pro works well with colours and details, and sometimes the Note 8 Pro works well. But the dynamic range in the 6 Pro is better. Details-wise, I don’t have a side difference.
Then I moved to 48 MP images. At first, I thought there would be a big difference between normal and 48MP images, however, 48MP images are slightly faster than 16MP images when zoomed in, but that’s not the case.
The regular 16 MP images from the Note 9 Pro are good. However, they differ in some scenarios in terms of dynamic range. The colours look good, but the floral pictures lose detail. However, human subjects have good skin. So overall, I don’t mind the pictures to say the least. You also get 2X digital zoom with this and the images are good.
Speaking of portraits, the 2MP depth sensor does a good job. They have better edge detection than the Note 8 Pro. The theme looks great and the theme itself. You can also change the amount of blur in the portrait, which is a nice feature.
Wide Angle Pictures have a slight colour change compared to normal images. This is fine since the normal images are a bit darker than wide angles but the difference is not so huge.
Now gross images from 2MP sensors with RealMe devices as I said recently is a pure gimmick. This allows you to go a little closer to the subject than a regular camera, but the quality is poor. However, they do feel a bit better, which is a bit better than what we found on the Realme 6 Pro.
Selfies are great with a 16MP front camera. You will get a natural skin tone and a nice detail note. The red is happening in the pictures, which some may not like, but it is purely a personal preference.
Portrait selfies are also good. You can’t change the opacity in a portrait like the rear cameras here. But the blur is good. There is little to complain about because this software works here.
However, nighttime shots are outrageous. Compared to Note 8 Pro, the usual night-time images are dark and without detail.
With Night Mode On, things have improved a bit, but again, it works just fine on the Note 8 Pro.
Video-wise, this is the standard you get. The best stabilization you can get is 1080p at 30 fps and 4K, videos are very unstable. More interestingly, video can also be recorded through a macro lens, which may be good news for some people but the quality is so poor that you don’t want to record with it.
Battery & Connectivity:
Now this time, Shiomi increased the battery section slightly. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro has 5,020 mAh, which I think is slightly less power efficient for the chipset (based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G vs. Qualcomm Snapdragon 885 11Nm). Once fully charged, the battery lasted one day of my use. -Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro review
The day I got so much, the battery endurance was a bit low and I had to charge in the evening. This only happens when you play a lot of sports. Otherwise in normal use, the battery will give you a day. You get an 18-watt fast charger inside the box, which takes 0–100% juice in two hours.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro 18W supports fast charging with a 5,020 mAh battery. Thankfully, the Fast Charger is included in the box. The device comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and Type-C port. On the right side of the device is the side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The display comes with a P2I rating to protect from splash. The device is available in three colour options: Aurora Black, Glacier White and Interstellar Black.
Now, as I already mentioned, you have a fingerprint sensor. And even though it seems to me to be awkward, it unlocks the device very fast. You also have the Face Unlock option, which is very fast but I would like to use a fingerprint sensor to close it. -Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro review
There is also an IR blaster, so if you lose your TV remote, the Note 8 Pro is useful for you. And this is useful because almost all companies are sad to get rid of it.
Some didn’t even get rid of the LED notification light. Okay, it only shines in one colour, as it always does with other Shiomi phones, but the mere addition makes me happy for some reason.
In terms of call quality and network reception, I have no problems. 5GHZ is WiFi support, most phones are still overlooked, so it’s fine. Going to the speakers, the single firing bottom speaker is great. It is moderately loud and does not deform at high volumes. -Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro review

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro Pros and Cons
- Excellent Performance
- Great Design
- Good Cameras
- Good Battery Life
- No AMOLED display
- No in-display fingerprint sensor
Finally, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro is a balanced midrange phone with excellent performance, great design and good cameras. It does not have an AMOLED display and an in-display fingerprint sensor, which Vivo and Samsung offer at this price. However, its IPS panel and rear-mounted capacitive fingerprint sensors are very good so I think they are not an absolute necessity.
