The Redmi Note 9 Pro has already been introduced to the Indian market as Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.The Pro 9 is similar to the Pro Max barring the front camera which is 16MP compared to that of 32 MP of the Max version.
In the launch event the Note9Pro was announced as the flagship level in all aspects which is very true.Though the main highlight of this device is the price which again is Xiaomi’s usp.They really give their users lots for lower price than its competitors.
Let’s have a look at this flagship level mid range smart phone.
DESIGN AND BODY
The design is like a rectangle with rounded corners.The new Tropical Green colour variant comes with dual tone colour on the back.It looks like a diagonal deep shade across the back which gives it a very premium look.

I should mention that DOT display will not be of the same level as an OLED display but at the price tag of the Redmi Note 9 Pro the display is more than good enough.
