The Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G smartphones are the first two 5G phones in the Note series. The 108MP camera and Snapdragon 750G SoC have been used in the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G smartphone.
Xiaomi has launched the 5G variants of Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro in China. The launches have long been expected to be in the reckoning, and bring in 5G connectivity to Xiaomi’s super popular mid-range smartphone lineup. The Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 9 5G join the rest of the Redmi Note 9 lineup, which has already been launched in India, and include the Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9 Pro, and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.
With 5G connectivity coming to the super popular mid-ranger for the very first time, it will be interesting to see if and when Xiaomi decides to bring the smartphones to India, where 5G connectivity for consumers is yet to roll out. Nevertheless, with a number of 5G devices such as the OnePlus Nord and the Apple iPhone 12 lineup already launched in the country, it is likely that Xiaomi too will decide to bring the latest Redmi Note 9 5G devices to India.
