Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 4G arrives with a massive 6,000 mAh battery and a large display
The Redmi Note 9 4G may be the cheapest of the three smartphones that Xiaomi has unveiled today, but it is also the one with the largest battery. We should point out that the Redmi Note 9 4G is a new device, and is not the one that the company released in India earlier this year. Essentially, the Redmi Note 9 4G is a slimmed-down Redmi Note 9 5G, albeit only in a few areas.
The Redmi Note 9 4G has a 6.53-inch IPS display like the Redmi Note 9 5G, which remains locked at a 60 Hz refresh rate. However, there is an 8 MP front-facing camera instead of a 13 MP one. The two devices share 48 MP primary, 8 MP ultra-wide-angle and 2 MP depth cameras, though.
Xiaomi has equipped the Redmi Note 9 4G with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC, and a minimum of 4 GB of RAM with 128 GB of storage. The device can be configured with 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage with the latter RAM configuration. Underpinning the Redmi Note 9 4G is a 6,000 mAh battery, which can be recharged at up to 18 W.
The Redmi Note 9 4G is available in four colours and starts at CNY 999 (US$151) with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The device tops out at CNY 1,499 (~US$228) with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. International availability remains unknown, as is the case with all the new Redmi Note 9 series devices.
