  • Last Updated: May 26, 2020, 12:25 PM IST

Xiaomi India is going to host yet another sale of its recently launched Redmi Note 9 today. Launched back in March, the handset is a follow up of the company’s popular Redmi Note 8 Pro. The smartphone boasts of a new square camera module and a punch-hole display at the front. The company had also launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, a slightly beefed-up version offering more memory and a higher resolution camera.

SPECIFICATIONS

The Redmi Note 9 Pro features a 6.67-inch full-HD+ LCD display with a punch-hole placed on top center and a quad-camera setup in a square module. Like the previous Redmi Note 8 series, it has Gorilla Glass on the front and back, but this time the cameras are also protected with the same. Other notable design features include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner similar to the Poco X2 and the Realme 6 series.

The device is powered by the new 8nm-based Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G which should be more efficient and slightly more powerful than the 730G. The smartphone will be offered in two variants- 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. There is also a dedicated microSD card slot to expand the storage further.

The square camera module is placed at the center and is raised from the main body. It includes a 48-megapixel main sensor next to an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera. There is also a 5-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. At the front, there is a 16-megapixel selfie camera placed in the punch hole. According to the company, the camera is capable of shooting RAW photography and some nifty tricks in pro mode while shooting video.

The battery unit is rated at 5,020mAh which is said to be the biggest on a Redmi Note device and supports 18W fast charging. Rest of the features include support for 4G VoLTE, NaVIC GPS, dual-SIM card slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, P2i coating, USB Type-C and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The handset will come with Android 10 with MIUI 11. There are three colour options to choose from including Aurora Blue, Glacier White, and Interstellar Black.

MIUI 12 Global Version is Coming to These Devices: Check All the Details

Xiaomi officially announced the global version of its custom Android interface, MIUI 12. The announcement comes almost after a month it was announced for its hometown China. The new interface comes with the same features that we saw during the Chinese announcement including updated visuals, improved dark mode, better privacy controls as well as those amazing Super Wallpapers.

The new MIUI 12 ROM is based on Android 10 and primarily focuses on visual changes. It is flatter and more minimalistic, with new and slicker animations all around. There’s a new Dark Mode 2.0 with wallpaper dimming along with new navigation gestures that now match with Android 10. The Settings section has also seen some changes, especially the Storage and My Device sections.

Other features include improvements in privacy controls, where the OS will now notify the users everytime an app is accessing a sensitive feature like your location, cameras, microphone, and so on. There is also a new Ultra Battery Saver mode that activates a new homescreen with only a few essential apps. This mode can turn on automatically when the battery drops below five percent. The updated dark mode has the ability to expand the black theme to third-party apps.

The update also brings Super live wallpaper as well as Always-on Display screens which are inspired by the Earth, Moon, and Mars. The best feature is when you unlock the phone wherein the live wallpaper zooms in from space right to the surface level, depending on which celestial body you’ve chosen.

As for the rollout, Xiaomi has announced that the new MIUI 12 update will be coming first to the Mi 9, the Redmi K20, and Redmi K20 Pro (also known as the Mi 9T and the Mi 9T Pro globally) in June. This includes Redmi K20 series users in India.

The update is also expected to launch on the Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 6 Pro, Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 8, Redmi Note 9 Pro, and Mi 10 series. Other phones include the Mi Note 10, Mi 8, Mi 8 Pro, Mi Mix 3, Mi Mix 2S, Mi 9 SE, Mi 9 Lite, Mi Note 3, Mi Mix 2, Mi Max 3, Mi 8 Lite, Redmi Y2, Redmi S2, Redmi Y3, Redmi 8A, and Redmi 8A Dual. The company sub-brand (now a separate entity) Poco will also be rolling out the update to the Poco F1, Poco F2 Pro, and Poco X2. The company however, hasn’t confirmed the exact rollout date for these devices.

Redmi Note 9 to Launch Today: Here’s How to Watch Live Stream

The Redmi Note 9 Pro and the Note 9 Pro Max were launched in India last month but there was no news around the Note 9. Well, Xiaomi is now finally launching the Redmi Note 9 globally via an online event. The company usually announces devices separately for China and other parts of the globe, but it seems that due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, it is going for a global launch event. Reports also say that Xiaomi will also announce the Mi Note 10 Lite, a more toned-down version of the Mi Note 10.

The launch event is scheduled to begin at 8PM UTC (5.30 PM IST). The announcements will be live-streamed on Xiaomi’s YouTube and other social accounts. Apart from the Note 9, the event might also include the announcement of the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max for global markets apart from India and China.

You can catch all the announcements via the live stream embedded below:

Redmi Note 9

The Redmi Note 9 is naturally going to be a toned-down version of the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. Leaks suggest that the handset will come with a 6.53-inch Full-HD+ (1,080×2,340 pixels) display. It is expected to be powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, paired with up to 4GB RAM. We are expecting that the Indian version will come with a Snapdragon processor.

The camera is said to include a 48-megapixel main sensor while the battery could be similar to the Note 9 Pro series rated at 5,020mAh. As usual, it will run on the company’s MIUI 11 ROM based on Android 10. There is also a rumour that the Redmi Note 9 will launch in China as the Redmi 10X with pricing starting at CNY 1,499 (Rs 16,000 approx).

Mi Note 10 Lite

The Mi Note 10 Lite is also expected to make an appearance at today’s event. The phone is going to be a more affordable version of the Mi Note 10. It will have a vertical quad-camera setup at the back and a waterdrop-style notch display. The quad-camera setup is likely to include a high-resolution camera, a wide-angle camera, a depth sensor, and a telephoto camera. The phone is expected to come with a Snapdragon 730G SoC, and a 5,260mAh battery with 30W fast charging support. It will be offered in Black, White, and Blue colour options.

There is no confirmation whether the Mi Note 10 Lite will be launched in India or not.

Xiaomi Phones Will Now Cost You More Than Before: Here is Why

Xiaomi India has announced that it will be increasing the prices of its smartphones starting today, April 1, 2020. The announcement comes days after the recent increase in GST rates on mobile phones from 12 percent to 18 percent that was slated to come into effect today.

This essentially means that all phones sold by the company will be more expensive. While the change in price hasn’t reflected on the company’s website, certain people on Twitter are noticing increased pricing of the Redmi Note 7 Pro as well as the company’s sub-brand Poco selling its latest smartphone, the Poco X2, Rs 1000 more than the launch price.

This might sound like an April Fools joke, but Xiaomi Global VP and India head, Manu Kumar Jain confirmed the price hike on Twitter. He mentioned that the company’s policy of maintaining less than 5 percent profit margin has left no choice but to increase the prices of its smartphones. Notably, the depreciation of Indian Rupee against the US dollar is another reason why the company is increasing the prices of its smartphones.

A report suggests that a similar move will be followed by other brands including the likes of Realme, Vivo, Oppo and more. As for Xiaomi, expect phones like the newly launched Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi K20, and the Redmi Note 8 Pro to get revised prices. Xiaomi is also expected to launch the Mi 10 series in India after the original plan to launch the phone on March 31 was cancelled.

The smartphone will be offered in a total of three variants include 6GB RAM with either 64GB or 128GB of storage and an 8GB RAM option with 128GB internal storage. There is also a dedicated microSD card slot to expand the storage further.

The square camera module is placed at the center and is raised from the main body. It includes a 64-megapixel main sensor next to an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera. There is also a 5-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. At the front, there is a 32-megapixel selfie camera placed in the punch hole.

Redmi Note 9 Pro

The Redmi Note 9 Pro is a smaller variant of the Max featuring the same design and looks. It doesn’t come with a 64-megapixel camera, rather a 48-megapixel primary sensor while the rest of the three cameras remain the same. The resolution of the front camera is also lower at 16-megapixels. Other differences include support for only 18W fast charging for the 5,020mAh battery and slightly different memory options. The Redmi Note 9 Pro will be offered in 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. Rest all the features remain the same.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro to Feature Snapdragon 720G Processor, 5,020mAh Battery

Xiaomi India is soon going to launch its new Redmi Note 9 series in India. While the company has teased a few features including a quad-camera setup, along with powerful performance and fast battery charging. We are expecting the company to launch the Note 9 and the Note 9 Pro at the scheduled online event on March 12.

There have been various leaks and rumours about the upcoming handsets, and one of them comes from popular tipster Ishan Agarwal. He suggests that the Note 9 Pro will feature a 6.67-inch FHD+ display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a punch-hole cutout and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is expected to be powered by the new Snapdragon 720G chipset which was announced earlier this year, paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage.

The company has already confirmed the quad-camera setup at the back which could feature a 48-megapixel main sensor along with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 5-megapixel macro camera and a depth camera. The batter will be a large 5,020mAh unit, along with support for 18W fast charging. The handset is expected to come in three colours- Aurora Blue, Glacier White, and Interstellar Black.

These specifications make the Note 9 Pro a slightly better proposition compared to its predecessor, the Redmi Note 8 Pro. Of course, the latter comes with a higher resolution primary sensor, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is better.
