The new 5G versions of the Redmi Note 9 may have been confirmed by TENAA
Recent rumors have pointed to a new Redmi Note that has a 6.67-inch FHD+ LCD display with "AdaptiveSync", which may be Xiaomi for a variable refresh rate (VRR) that goes from 30 to 120 hertz (Hz) at need. However, confusingly enough, this screen was not destined for a putative next-gen flagship, but for yet another 9-series phone that might even launch before 2020 is out.
Now, subsequent leaks suggest that this phone is the Note 9 Pro 5G. They may be confirmed by a new TENAA approval for a Xiaomi phone called the M2007J17C with a display of a corresponding size. According to its new certification, it has 6 to 12GB of internal storage and a quad rear camera with an 108MP main shooter.
Its new official images also suggests it has a rear panel much like that of the Mi 10T Lite (which, hopefully, will shine up better in the real world). It is indeed certified to use 5G; based on the documented 2.2GHz speed of its processor, it is now said to run on the Snapdragon 750G chipset.
This possibly upcoming new Redmi Note 9 Pro may also come in vanilla flavor. This M2007J22C also has a round rear camera hump, which will house 48+13+8+8MP shooters in this case. Its display is 6.53 inches in diagonal length, with no hint of an advanced refresh rate. However, it does have a ~5000mAh battery, compared to ~4800mAh in the "Pro 5G".
This putative Note 9 5G has an SoC clocked at 2.4GHz, giving rise to speculation that it is the MediaTek Dimensity 800U. However, neither phone has been confirmed by their brand or OEM as yet. Then again, their existence might explain the sudden sell-off of existing 4G/LTE-only units of this line.
