Since this is a quiet lengthy article, we have added a table of contents for easier navigation.

Redmi Note 9 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset, which proved to be quite competitive with Qualcomm’s 700-series. Xiaomi’s ad materials claim that the 800U is twice as fast as the Redmi Note 8 chipset. The storage is UFS 2.2, which is 100% faster than the storage in the old phone too.

The phone has a 6.53-inch LCD with 1080p+ resolution and a standard refresh rate. It can bring its brightness down to just 1 nit for night time viewing and is TUV-certified for low blue light emissions. Gorilla Glass 5 is again the protection of choice for the display.

The main camera has a more modest 48MP sensor (1/2”, 1.6µm pixels after 4-in-1 binning). It can still record 4K video, which (like the Pro) is limited to 30 fps. The 8MP ultrawide (118°) camera is joined by a 2MP macro camera. The selfie camera captures 13MP photos and 1080p videos.
