On the front, Redmi Note 9 Pro sports a 16MP in-display camera for high-quality selfies. Its new slow-motion selfie mode captures hilarious slow-motion videos — perfect for social media.
Redmi Note 9 also brings photography to the forefront with a 48MP main camera and 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens.

A 13MP camera is positioned in-display to allow for maximum front screen display size.
Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9’s cinematic portraits and video mode turn users into directors by capturing content with a 2.39:1 aspect ratio – the same format commonly used in films. Meanwhile, with six different kaleidoscope options, everyone can shoot quirky, eye-catching videos in an instant, while the all-new document mode transforms your smartphone into a pocket-sized scanner.
Long-lasting battery, fast charge

Redmi Note 9 Pro also sports a z-axis linear vibration motor for more balanced user experience. The z-axis linear vibration creates 120 vibration effects depending on the user’s action, including different vibrations for photos, screenshots, notifications, clock settings and more.
Under the hood, Redmi Note 9 has a MediaTek Helio G85 processor making it the world’s first smartphone to feature the new chipset. It also consists of a 2x A75 2.0GHz, 6x A55 1.8GHz CPU and an ARM G52 MC2 with roughly 1000MHz and a Manhattan 3.0 GPU at around 25 fps, offering ultra-smooth day-to-day performance.
Redmi Note 9 Pro features a stylish, notch-free 6.67” DotDisplay. A side-mounted fingerprint sensor makes the device more conveniently accessible, while an all-new front camera module design ensures a premium and immersive user experience.
