Redmi takes a jab at Meizu Note 9


Today, Chinese manufacturer, Meizu, released the Meizu Note 9 in a launch conference in Beijing. In terms of price, the 4GB + 64GB version is priced at 1398 yuan ($208), the 6GB + 64GB/4GB + 128GB versions are priced at 1598 yuan ($238). After the Meizu Note 9 conference, Lu Weibing, vice president of Xiaomi Group and general manager of Redmi brand, made a statement on Weibo which takes a jab at the Meizu Note 9.

Lu Weibing said, “your price is expensive”. He added, here is the summary of the new Redmi Note 7 Pro. It uses a Sony IMX586 48MP camera, double-sided Corning Gorilla Glass 5, 6GB + 128GB version, and a really long warranty. This smartphone also comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675, and a 4000 mAh battery.

The Meizu Note 9 is also equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 mobile platform, and a dual 48MP + 5MP rear camera but the 48MP shooter is a Samsung GM1 sensor. It also comes with a 4000 mAh battery.

From the statements of Lu Weibing, he seems very proud of the price tag of the Redmi Note 7 Pro which will be launched in China on March 18. Nevertheless, the price difference is quite insignificant. In terms of price, the Redmi Note 7 Pro in India is priced at 13999 Indian rupees (4GB+64GB version, about 1,300 Yuan or $197) and we expect the Chinese version to come with a similar price tag. Thus, there is no much difference in price.

    Lu Weibing forget to say how Meizu Note 9 has a much better build quality (metal frame & back). No one forced them to make the cheap commercials now strong & durable RN7 is now it will crack the nuts their nuts.

      100% true and the hardware is a part of the story, the other part is how many android updates each phone will get.

      & which those updates are for; empty cosmetic front shells,, functional updates bug fixes, security updates kernel updates I know Meizu ain’t that good regarding this but neither is Xiaomi especially when it comes to kernel updates (meaning also lacking security CVE updates on the kernel side) also MIUI updates are rather buggy and their developers hard on ears. It remains to bee seen how will both of those perform in the wild.

      Nope, just an assumption that they share the same body

      Updates from one android version to the next version

      Probably only one Android version update, even that is questionable.
