Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro, analysis: symmetry stands out, autonomy sentence

The mid-range in mobile phones is harder than ever with so many brands and devices, and it seems that Xiaomi’s strategy is to strengthen its Redmi brand with a good batch of models so far this year. We have a representation of this in the analysis of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro, something like the intermediate brother between the Redmi Note 9 and the Redmi Note 9S.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro, analysis: symmetry stands out, autonomy sentence

They are similar formulas, in this case reaching up to 6 GB of RAM and with four rear cameras. With a design with symmetry by flag and a Qualcomm processor for a competent mid-range in gaming, we tell you in detail the experience with another aspiring mobile “BBB” from Xiaomi.

Design: symmetry as a differential resource

One of the most curious aspects of its design and construction when seeing it presented was that large camera module, as symmetrical and focused as it is notorious. It gave the impression of standing out a lot and it does, with almost 2 millimeters of the protuberance.
It is not something that bothers the grip due to its location, which seems key to avoid the “rocking effect” that it would surely have to be on the side. We do not see it in this case when we handle it while leaning on the table unless we go to “look for the tickle” and touch very on the side edge (something that is rather forced).
It is the highlight of a rear that has a fully reflective and metallic finish, with the brand’s logo and some symbols on the bottom. Of course, the back gets dirty very easily and normally we will see it full of traces, although perhaps it compensates this in the sense that it does not slip and we will not have to add the thickness of a cover if the a priori reason was this.
The latter is important given that it is a mobile phone that is now medium-sized (and is synonymous with being large), although they have managed to contain the thickness on the sides, thus giving the feeling that it is less thick. It is voluminous although in the usual trend today, in fact in a volume very close to that of the Realme 6 Pro, they have managed to put in a much larger battery without increasing the weight (1 gram to be precise).

It, therefore, goes to the league of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra in terms of volume and battery, although thinking less. In fact, it’s almost as thick as its cousin the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, but the Redmi Note 9 Pro’s battery is superior incapacity.
Thus, it is a mobile with a comfortable grip, without it being a feeling that you got from that of other large mobiles. It does not get tiring and given the dimensions, the positive thing is that it does not slip.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 both on the back and on the front, having plastic edges. The construction is good and we see that the back and edge fully keep the aesthetic harmony although the tone and finish of each one are different (the edge is matte), forming a box for the front, which, seen in profile, is a protrusion.
At these edges, we see the SIM tray, alone on the left side as the physical volume buttons and the fingerprint reader is on the side. And on the lower edge are the speaker, the USB type C, and the 3.5 mm jack, not completely aligned in the center of it.
The earpiece grille fits into the upper edge taking advantage of the joint with the screen, seeing that there is also no notch, but a hole for the front camera. Later we will enter the use of the screen, but for now, we can say that it is a single camera and that the hole is centered. All about symmetry (almost everything) in the aesthetics of this Redmi.
Something that is a note of distinction and at the same time a reminder is a notification LED also installed in the grille of the earpiece. We will see what we can do with it by talking about the software, but it has ceased to be something common in smartphones and despite being something so seen for years it is at the same time something different.
