Design and display, innovate or die
I have no doubt that when Xiaomi renewed the Redmi Note 8 Pro, Xiaomi knew that his formula workedand what works shouldn’t be touched too much for it to continue to do so The new Redmi Note 9 Pro offers a lot of continuity in a well-known glass and metal construction in which the new photo module stands out.
We went from a line-centered configuration to a square module with the sensors placed in a symmetrical position, and we went further as well a front that is losing notch to build a hole in the screen now where the front sensor is located. The other notable improvement is when used with a complete minimization of frames and margins The only thing noteworthy remains the lower chin, which serves to hide the physical connection with the LCD panel.
In fact, Xiaomi has not changed this screen either, either Go back to using IPS technology for its better benefit-price ratio, although the results in this case are below OLED experience. So you won’t Neither the design nor the differentiating factors of the screen too relevant.
To highlight that, of course Growth in size and screenbecause the Redmi Note 9 Pro now measures 165.8 x 76.7 x 8.8 millimeters and weighs 209 grams, with a 6.67-inch panel and FHD + resolution that Tracks the 395 pixels per inch of the Redmi Note 8 Pro screen, 6.53 inches and FHD + resolution in a 161.4 x 76.4 x 8.8 millimeter housing with a weight of 200 grams.
The glass doesn’t vary either, Xiaomi chose in both cases the fifth generation of Gorilla Glass from Corning for its best scratch resistance.
MediaTek or Qualcomm, the difference is inside
Choosing one or the other model is certainly the ideal Go find the cold dates of the data sheetand in fact there are important differences here between the Redmi Note 9 Pro and its predecessor, the Note 8 Pro, in terms of that Hardware platform chosen by Xiaomi.
The Redmi Note 8 Pro is mounted a MediaTek Helio G90T with an 8-core processor up to 2.05 GHz and an ARM Mali-G76 MC-GPU, accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage with microSD.
The new Redmi Note 9 Pro opts for a chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G with processor Octa core up to 2.3 GHz, Adreno 618 GPU and memory configurations with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage.
In both models The connectivity is complete and identical with 4G LTE modem, dual-band WLAN, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, aGPS with GLONASS, GALILEO and BDS, NFC, IR connection, FM radio and USB Type C in addition to the already malicious 3.5 millimeter audio socket.
Obviously, the magnification also means that The Redmi Note 9 Pro model has a larger batteryUp to 5,020 mAh with a fast charge of 30 W, so that the Redmi Note 8 Pro has a capacity of 4,500 mAh and a charging power of 18 W.
Certainly, a logical renewal by Xiaomi that leaves us the choice in the hands of the Preference for Qualcomm or MediaTek hardware, both likely very evenly in terms of performance due to different levels of support and the possibility of updates.
Indeed, which one has a better camera?
We have already told you this from the multimedia sector Both models have a standard audio connection, Specification abandoned by almost everyone except middle class, plus an FM radio That is still appreciated by many users.
As for cameras, There are no significant differences except in the front module for Selfies and rear arrangementbut that has changed Hold all four sensors on both Redmi Note 8 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro with the only change in the ‘Macro’::
- 64 MP wide (f / 1.9), 26mm, PDAF
- 8 MP extra wide (f / 2.2), 119 °
- 5 MP macro (f2.4), AF
- 2 MP depth (f / 2.4)
- HDR auto, LED flash, 4K @ 30fps video, 720p @ 960fps slow motion, EIS
The Redmi Note 8 Pro has its sensor macro lowers the performance to 2 megapixels without AF, with a 20 MP front sensor with 1: 2.0 aperture Instead of 16 MP with 1: 2.5 of the new model.
Redmi Note 9 Pro or Redmi Note 8 Pro, which one to choose and which one to buy?
After seeing all the data, it should be noted that we are standing in front of us two very similar models, between which there is a difference of one year, which is practically imperceptible in notable differences, which makes it very clear that The development of this branch had obviously stalled Waiting for 5G and the new folding formats.
Perhaps because of this equality, it isn’t strange to see how The prices are almost identical tooto make the differentiation invisible in this sense and The choice remains at the expense of hardware and design also difficult to distinguish:
As you have seen and take this into account there’s only about 30 or 40 euros between themThe truth is that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G is used instead of MediaTek’s Helio G90T the same justifies the Redmi Note 9 Pro compared to its predecessorbut it is not easy to insure it.
Indeed, if you don’t like big cell phones The Redmi Note 8 Pro is a great option that ensures a similar experience in a smaller bottleeven if it implies Give up that extra 520 mAh that never hurt a battery for a cell phone.
