The Redmi Note 9 series wasn’t available in China until now, but the series arrives with a bang. The new Pro model costs the same as last year, CNY 1,600, but the difference in hardware is massive. While that’s a very affordable price, Xiaomi also unveiled the Redmi Note 9 with 5G for CNY 1,300 and one with 4G for a flat CNY 1,000.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G and Note 9 5G will be available in China from December 1. We’ll have a closer look in a second, but first here’s how the phones compare to their predecessors.
