According to recent certifications, the device will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC running on MIUI 12 based Android 10. It will sport a 6.53-inch IPS LCD FHD+ display panel. It will be available in 4/6/8 GB RAM with 64/128/256GB internal storage. The triple camera sensor is lead by a 48MP primary lens. Whereas a 13MP camera resides under the punch-hole. The smartphone will feature a 5000 mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging.
Whereas, the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC running on MIUI 12 based Android 10. However, the display might remain the same but recent rumors indicate a 120Hz refresh rate panel. Cameras wise, it will feature a 108MP sensor.
Lastly, there will be a Redmi Note 9 4G as well, but it is less likely to launch globally. Recently, Poco has been teasing its Poco M3 which they will launch on November 24. We believe that the new Poco device will once again be rebranded. Hopes for the Redmi Note 9 4G are less likely.
