Quad Camera Hotshot
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 comes with a 48MP Quad Camera setup which we see on its back panel. It has that signature Note 9 Series square arrangement we see on phones like Redmi Note 9S. These cameras are a main 48 MP shooter, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a final 2MP depth sensor. The main highlight here is the 48 MP shooter of course. That 8MP ultrawide lens also gets the job right.
As for video recording, Redmi Note 9 offers [email protected] which is a bummer. Wouldn’t it be great to get a 64 MP with [email protected] video recording capabilities? This is the same recording quality that the selfie shooter gives. The camera features here include HDR, panorama, LED flash, and HDR. With the 48MP main camera, you can capture all your favorite moments, and the wide-angle lens, macro lens, and depth of field lens will ensure you get the best results regardless of what scene – view more.
Design and Display
The front panel of the Redmi Note 9 features a display with a hole punch. Xiaomi calls it a DotDisplay. Within this punch is Redmi Note 9’s impressive 13 MP front-facing camera lens aka the selfie camera. As for the form, this is an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with support for 16M colors and with 1080 x 2340 pixels. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection here to ensure the display’s durability and longevity. It might also please you to learn that the brightness levels of this screen can get quite turned up to 450 nits type. brightness as advertised.
Now for a moment let us consider the design of this phone shall we? Xiaomi does not compromise when it comes to this department. And this is very evident in how well built this phone is. With a Glass front (Gorilla Glass 5) on both the front and back, it has a premium touch even though it is but a mid-range smartphone. Considering the price of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 in Kenya, the plastic frame it has is excusable.
Redmi Note 9 is rather heavy at 199 g. This can be explained by the large-capacity battery the phone comes with. More on this later. Anyway, its dimensions are about 162.3 x 77.2 x 8.9 mm and it has a Splash-proof coating to prevent those accidental spills of water or soup or whatsoever liquid from damaging your phone. But be careful not to experiment on its limits. You might end up damaging your phone. It is Splash proof, not waterproof.
