It should've been an oled display with 120hz or a very very good quality lcd with 120hz, 108mpx and atleast 3x zoom, with 40watt atleast and stereo speakers, and mediatek dimensity 1000+ or sd 855+ atleast for 200$ otherwise this is not the same xiaomi as before
Carvi, 28 Nov 2020Does anyone know if it will support aptx?Yeah it supports aptx,aotx HD because it will comes Snapdragon processor
Mario, 27 Nov 2020Hi Xiaomi, please don’t make phones too heavy weight, produces below 200g is exciting usage.Cheaper phone = cheaper materials (sometimes heavier than expensive counterpart)
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2020WTF Xiaomi. You just made 3 phones with the Redmi Note 9 Pro now. So we now have: Redmi No... moreDid they confirm it will be a china exclusive? I want to check out the phone if it has sa global model
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2020No Amoled- no buyIf you see a 120hz display in this price category don't expect an amoled display it is still a new feature which just really progressed this year.
joe nodden, 27 Nov 20201) No no no you're not a pushover, you're a stubborn halfwit. Even worse.
2) Yes ... moreHe totally forgot that the LiDar sensor on the iPhone is way superior to that 2MP depth sensor.
2MP depth sensor doesn't help with anything as well as 2MP macro.
Only thing i don't understand is -why only 4820mah?
Redmi phones have always been known for their great batteries. This phone uses a higher refresh rate and a weaker battery than the Redmi Note 9 Pro/9S, meaning it will have a much worse battery life. And it's a newer phone... why?
For that reason alone, i won't buy this phone. I'd rather just get the older Redmi Note 9 Pro/9S. Battery life is very important.
I understand that the charging power is a bit better, but battery life is a lot more important than charging speed - nobody wants to be attached to the charger all day.
xdss, 27 Nov 2020will this release globally ? I this'll be china only
Sage NB, 27 Nov 2020Two years ago a depth sensor was a selling point for flagships, now it has been shifted to mid... moreRead the other two replies from other people more intelligent than you. You're alone in your thinking. Give up.
Gemini 13, 28 Nov 2020Note 9 Pro 5G has 108MP main camera and the Mi 10T Lite has 64MPI need this phone xiaomi redmi note 9 pro 5G
Now I'm in Saudi Arabia
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2020Mi 10T Pro Lite?Note 9 Pro 5G has 108MP main camera and the Mi 10T Lite has 64MP
Great mobile great specs 108mp camera and 5g connectivity and a 120 hz panel in around 200 euros is future
WTF Xiaomi. You just made 3 phones with the Redmi Note 9 Pro now.
So we now have:
Redmi Note 9 Pro India =basically a Redmi Note 9S, indian exclusive
Redmi Note 9 Pro Global=basically a Redmi Note 9 Pro Max India, Global Exclusive
Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G = A Poco F2 Pro with better camera but Upper Midrange Processor instead of Flagship. China Exclusive
Sage NB, 27 Nov 2020If you're used to bullying people online claiming to know better than them then I'm ... moreJust to interject here, I'm not sure if you are aware that the depth sensor on this phone is located on the back, rather than on the front.
You mention the iPhone's depth sensor, but that is an entirely different context. The iPhone's "TrueDepth" sensor is situated on the front (not on the back), and its primary function is mostly for Apple's FaceID unlock; it's secondary use is for giving selfies a depth-of-field.
Therefore, the depth sensor on the iPhone shares a codependent relationship with the FaceID unlock feature (i.e. FaceID depends on the hardware. Without it, it cannot function properly). The same cannot be said with its secondary function, as the phone and all its fundamental features are still working properly without the added blur in portrait photos.
This is not to say that the depth sensor on the Note 9 Pro is useless, but without or without it, the average user won't likely care that much. And it's only located on the back, which makes it unsuitable for selfies (another factor that makes the sensor fruitless on this particular phone).
As harsh as he might be sometimes, Joe's point was that Google and other companies have relied on software to achieve the exact same thing that the hardware (depth sensor) can do. I mean, we are just talking about a simple blur effect, it's not hard to do with software processing. They could've just implemented an advanced software algorithm to separate the foreground from the background, and added a blur effect that realistically mimics the lens-type blur. But no, they didn't. Instead they chose the hardware option. So having said that, it really seems that Xiaomi's addition of a hardware depth sensor was more of a marketing stunt than anything.
One might think that it would be unfair to criticize Xiaomi given that this is a 200 Euro phone, but one also needs to take in consideration that Xiaomi isn't really the most "rational" of all OEMs. Their approach is solely driven by profit, even if the difference in profit is miniscule. Truthfully, many OEMs are becoming less rational over the years, but Xiaomi excels at it.
So ultimately, I side with Joe here (and the anon comment below). My criticism really has nothing to do with their product as a consumer. Their product is great obviously for the price. I just don't agree with their decision-making processes. I believe Occam's Razor (aka law of parsimony) is a better tool for decision-making than calculating profit margins (this mostly just applies to hardware components). Sticking to the law of parsimony is not only logical, but is also naturally cost-effective.
I mean, I could also talk about the potential long-term environmental impact of increasing the demand for hardware components that aren't entirely necessary, but I think I've already expressed my point enough. Anyway these are just my thoughts.
P.S. My point is generalizable to many other contexts other than this phone.
