Redmi India, sub-brand of Xiaomi has teased Redmi Note 9 series in Twitter, Amazon and mi.com, having tagline #ProCamerasMaxPerformance. Redmi Note series is too popular in India because of it’s specs and awesome price. When Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro was launched in Q4, people were shocked with the price and the specs. Redmi Note 8 was launched at ₹ 9,999 in India for 4 GB+64 GB variant and on that event Manu Jain, Global VP, Xiaomi had announced that 4 GB+64 GB would be the base variant for Note number series and 6 GB+64 GB would be the base variant for Note Pro series.
Expected Specifications of Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro
Redmi Note 9 and Note 9 Pro, both will have a quad camera setup as we have already seen in the previous phones of Note series. This time, it is expected that Note 9 Pro may be the 1st one come up with 108 MP in India but it’s not confirmed officially. But one specification of Note 9 series looks like confirmed i.e., processor of Redmi Note 9 Pro. Few days ago, Manu Jain had tweeted a pic with Mr. K Sivan, chairperson of ISRO and wrote, Xiaomi to take things ahead with NavIC. And it feels like he was indicating about the use of Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G among other chipset that supports Snapdragon 720G, Snapdragon 662 and Snapdragon 460.
Earlier, we have seen 90 Hz refresh rate in Redmi Note 8 Pro so we can expect this time in Note 9 Pro as well. There will be Type-C charging port and obviously a fast charger in the box. If we talk about the user interface then there will be MIUI 11 which will be powered by Android 10. Xiaomi, these days are seem to be more focused on glass backs and P2i coating so we can expect P2i coating and Gorilla Glass 5 on front and as well as back.
On back, we will be given a square camera housing which will contain 4 cameras and a LED flash. There will be a branding of Redmi in bottom-center. We can’t expect fingerprint sensor in back of Redmi Note 9 Pro and maybe Note 9 as well. Side-mounted fingerprint sensor will be there on right side of phone. Side-mounted fingerprint sensor seems more prominent as it helps in giving the back, a clean look and it remains in the place of power button where people generally touch. Only problem is to the left-handers as they try to find buttons on left side or in the mid-back.
Redmi Note 9 Pro may have dual punch-hole selfie camera. One will be the primary camera and second might be the ultra-wide angle lens.
On left side, there will be Volume-Up and Volume-Down buttons and on right there will be fingerprint sensor. Top of the phone will have a noise-cancellation microphone, IR blaster and 3.5 mm audio jack.

Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro will be available in Amazon, Mi.com and MI authorized stores. Launch event was going to be conducted in some venue but after the COVID-19 cases, found in Delhi, Xiaomi has decided to launch these phones on March 12th, 2020 via live stream.
