Tomorrow Xiaomi will finally unveil the vanilla Redmi Note 9 for Global markets. Along with it, we’ll also see the big revelation of the Mi 10 Lite. However, we will probably know everything about these devices before the announcement. Now, a leak emerged revealing the specifications and design for the upcoming smartphone.
Redmi Note 9 design and specifications
The source is known for leaking about Xiaomi devices. Now, he revealed some of the key specifications along with them a couple of renders. The Redmi Note 9 will come in three color variants – Green, Blue, and Gradient White. The handset has a top-left aligned punch-hole in the Display. It’s one of the major differences between vanilla and the Pro variants. The other two have a centered punch-hole. It’s a 6.53-inch FHD+ LCD display.
Under the hood, we have MediaTek’s Helio G85 chipset. This particular SoC will make its global debut along with the Redmi Note 9 and should come along with 4GB and 6GB of RAM. Storage-wise we believe that this variant will start with 64GB and go up to 128GB of storage depending on the variant. You can expand the memory via a microSD card.
Moving around to the back there is a Quad-Camera setup. It’s a 48MP shooter with f/1.79 aperture, an 8MP ultrawide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth helper. In counterpart to the other Redmi Note 9 Pro devices, this one has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The handset draws power from a massive 5,020mAh battery, it’s a boost of 1,000mAh battery over its predecessor. Unfortunately, the fast-charging is capped at 18W despite the fact that Xiaomi provides a 22.5W charger in the box. Besides Note 9, we believe that the company will soon reveal a Note 9T variant. Since FCC spotted another version of the handset with NFC. But we’ll have until tomorrow’s event for confirmation.
