Pre-orders for the new Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G have already begun, with Xiaomi having unveiled the device in China yesterday. Astoundingly, the company claims to have already received over 100,000 pre-orders for its latest mid-range smartphone. The Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G starts at CNY 1,599 (~US243) and may make its way outside of China as the Redmi Note 9T Pro.

Xiaomi announced a lot of hardware yesterday, having already unveiled the Poco M3 this week. The Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G was the most powerful device of those showcased at Thursday's event with its 120 Hz display and Snapdragon 750G chipset complemented by up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G costs as little as CNY 1,599 (~US$243), although 8 GB of RAM SKUs start at CNY 1,799 (~US$273). Nonetheless, these prices have apparently proven attractive to consumers as over 100,000 units have been snapped up since pre-orders went live. According to MyDrivers, JD.com received 57,000 pre-orders, with that number exceeding 100,000 once pre-orders on Xiaomi Mall, Xiaomi House, Suning Tesco and Tmall are included.

It is unclear how many people have pre-ordered the Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 4G, but the presence of a 108 MP camera may have increased the initial popularity of the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. The device is the first Redmi to feature such a camera with so many megapixels and is one of the first smartphones to use Samsung's ISOCELL HM2 sensor. Samsung announced the ISOCELL HM2 in September, as we reported at the time.
