The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi draws attention with two new mid-range smartphones. On Thursday, the company not only presented the Redmi Note 9 Pro, a successor to the box office hit Redmi Note 8 Pro, but also another model with slightly better specifications, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. We’ll show you what smartphones can do.

Not so long ago, Xiaomi presented the Redmi Note 8 Pro. That was at the end of August 2019 and at that time a quad camera on the back was a real highlight on a smartphone. Nowadays it is no longer something special. Nevertheless, the two new Xiaomi smartphones Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max are real eye-catchers in the middle class. Because for comparatively little money you get decent performance based on Android 10 in combination with the customized user interface MIUI 11.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max Camera

The camera setup on the back consists of a 48-megapixel sensor (f / 1.8 aperture), an ultra-wide-angle lens (8 megapixels, f / 2.2 aperture), a macro camera (5 megapixels) and one Depth sensor (2 megapixels) together. For more distant objects, you can use a tenfold digital zoom. A 16-megapixel camera can be used on the front.

The front camera is hidden in the middle of the upper end of the display behind a camera hole. The IPS screen itself measures 6.67 inches in diagonal dimension and offers a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels. The refresh rate is 60 Hertz. The Gorilla Glass 5 panel is protected. The built-in battery is quite large with a capacity of 5,020 mAh and can be supplied with new energy via a USB-C connection.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max Performance

Snapdragon 720G from Qualcomm

As a “performance beast”, Xiaomi releases the Redmi Note 9 Pro in perfect marketing speech on its customers. Available in gray-black, white or turquoise. A term that is certainly a bit exaggerated. Because there is no top processor installed. For most customers, what is offered should still be more than sufficient.

Keyword processor: Here a model from Qualcomm is used: the Snapdragon 720G with up to 2.3 GHz clock rate. Depending on the model chosen, he is supported by 4 or 6 GB of RAM plus 64 or 128 GB of flash memory. If required, an additional 512 GB of memory can be expanded using a microSD card.

No 5G and no NFC

Important: The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro does not support 5G. So you can only use it in LTE networks. However, the model now presented in India does not support LTE band 20, which is important for Germany. Xiaomi should work on this vulnerability in an internationally marketed version of the smartphone.

By the way, use of two SIM cards is possible on request. And you don’t have to choose between a second SIM and a MicroSD card, you can use two SIM cards and a MicroSD card in parallel.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max Battery

Other features include Bluetooth 5.0, dual WiFi (2.4 & 5 GHz) as well as GPS and Galileo support. A 3.5 mm jack connection for your headset is also available. A fingerprint sensor is integrated on the side of the power button. However, NFC is apparently not installed, which could also change with a European variant.

Xiaomi calculates the equivalent of 155 euros for the model with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB memory, the slightly better equipped model (6 GB / 128 GB) costs 190 euros.
