Xiaomi recently released the Redmi Note 9 series which has both 4G and 5G versions. Today, we now have some images from China that show the disassembly of the three models. The disassembly shows the Redmi Note 9 4G, Note 9 5G, and Note 9 Pro which is also a 5G phone.

After removing the back cover, you can find that Redmi Note 9 4G and Note 9 5G use plastic plates, while Note 9 Pro 5G uses glass. The 4G model has a heat dissipation film on the back cover, while the 5G model has a heat dissipation film above the battery. In addition, 5G models have more antennas, which is also expected.

Looking at the camera, the Redmi Note 9 4G has three independent rear sensors, while the 5G version fixes its module on the camera module. The chipset and storage are located on the top of the motherboard, covered under the copper foil. After removing the copper foil, we can clearly see the situation of the three chipsets. Qualcomm’s chipset is located at the right corner of the motherboard, while MediaTek’s chipset is located at the upper right.

On the battery side, the 4G model has the largest battery at 6000 mAh. While the Note 9 5G has a 5000 mAh battery, the Note 9 Pro 5G uses a 4820 mAh. From this disassembly, we can see that there are not many differences between these devices whether 4G or 5G models.
