After the presentation of the new Redmi Note 9 Pro, many have been left in doubt as to whether the change is worth coming from the Redmi Note 8 Pro and especially, what advantages this new generation offers.
In view of this, below we will review all those features that have been improved in the new Redmi Note 9 Pro. In addition, we will detail each of its differences and what stands out about the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
New design more polished and adapted to the current trend
Without a doubt, the design of the new Redmi Note 9 Pro places it on a par with other terminals of a greater range. It is enough to take a look at its front part and its rear design to realize that Redmi has done a great job adapting its lines to the current market trend .
The same goes for its back, a new more symmetrical concept , which although for many may seem perhaps a little simple, the final design provides a much more careful appearance, maintaining discreet and elegant lines.
In short, we could say that both the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Note 9 Pro have a great design. Of course, if we want a terminal adapted to the current trend and with a design that will age better , the new Redmi Note 9 Pro is the perfect candidate.
Bigger screen but likewise, bigger weight and size
Something that perhaps you are not liking in Xiaomi is the increase in weight that practically all its latest smartphones have suffered. If the Redmi Note 8 Pro already had 200 grams, the new Redmi Note 9 Pro raises this figure to 209 grams.
- Redmi Note 9 Pro : 165.75 x 76.68 x 8.8mm
- Redmi Note 8 Pro : 161.4 x 76.4 x 8.8mm
Still, the new Redmi model gives us a larger 6.67-inch screen compared to the 6.53-inch Redmi Note 8 Pro. A matter of taste …
Goodbye MediaTek …
One of the sections where everyone has set their sights is on performance. And it is that, unlike the Redmi Note 8 Pro that has a MediaTek processor, the new Redmi Note 9 Pro returns to its origins with a Qualcomm processor .
And it is that, although it is still early to compare both processors, the first comparisons show us how the Snapdragon 720G of the Redmi Note 9 Pro manages to position itself ahead of the MediaTek Helio G90T .
As for storage, both models continue to add very similar characteristics. Internal storage of up to 128GB UFS 2.1 with the possibility of expansion via microSD .
Another aspect where the new Redmi has evolved is in its autonomy. The new Redmi Note 9 Pro adds a battery with a total capacity of 5,020mAh, thus providing a great improvement in autonomy compared to the 4,500mAh of the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
In addition, the new model incorporates a fast charge of no less than 30W , a figure significantly higher than the current 18W that incorporates the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Same main camera with little nuances
In the photographic section, both devices share the same photographic sensor, that is, the Samsung GW1 64MP . Of course, the macro lens in the new model goes from the 2MP added in the model of the previous year, to 5MP.
Also, while the Redmi Note 8 Pro incorporates a 20MP camera, the Redmi Note 9 Pro makes use of a 32MP sensor. An important leap in resolution that will show improvement in the first analyzes.
Beyond that, the new Redmi Note 9 Pro adds RAW support . This will allow us to be able to store our photographs in a much richer format with details and data itself, allowing its editing to be much more precise.
It is clear that with a fairly similar price, the Redmi Note 9 Pro stands out above the Redmi Note 8 Pro . Not only in design, but in certain characteristics related to your camera, but above all with its autonomy by having a larger battery.
Therefore, if we have to decide on one of the two, we could consider the Redmi Note 9 Pro as the right candidate, which also, thanks to its renewed design, will age better with the passage of time .
On the other hand, if we already have a Redmi Note 8 Pro, the changes that we will experience with the change to the Note 9 Pro do not believe that they are enough to disburse the money that it costs.
