Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Yesterday Xiaomi held an online presentation of the new smartphones of the Redmi brand. The presentation began with traditional applause (although where do they come from in an empty hall?), And then the speaker said that the Redmi line is super popular and 110 million devices have been sold in the world, and Redmi Note 8 and 8 Pro were among the 10 best-selling smartphones in Q4 2019, according to Canalys.

In order to calm the delight of Apple fans, I note that the 4th calendar quarter is the launch of new smartphones, so the first places of the iPhone are logical. New models are launched, old ones at partners fall in price

They also showed visualizations, which words most often characterize Redmi smartphones. The two most common words are “durable / hardy” (this can mean both a long battery life and the ability of a smartphone to survive falls) and “everything” (it means that the smartphone is universal, can do everything)

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

The speaker spoke about the successful launch of the Redmi Note 9S MFF Edition 2020 smartphone. MFF stands for Mi Fan Festival, and only 2020 such devices will be released. In terms of filling, it almost does not differ from the presented “Pro” version, but the camera is worse, 48 MP, and not 64 MP

And then, without delay, the Redmi Note 9 Pro was presented. Positioning the smartphone sounds like “the ultimate flagship experience for the mid-range segment.” Immediately I ask you to pay attention to the wording – not the flagship (which implies the ultimate hardware and all that stuff), but the flagship experience! That is, you touch it, and there is a feeling that it is like a flagship!

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

How can this be achieved? First of all, the speaker began to talk about design. If a smartphone is beautiful, then a lot can be forgiven. Redmi Note 9 Pro is not bad at all! Visually, it immediately resembles Huawei’s Mate 20. The same arrangement of cameras, and the pattern is similar, but if the Mate 20 is entirely striped, then in the Redmi Note 9 Pro only the lower part is covered with such a pattern. And the speaker proudly noted that the design is symmetrical and the camera is located exactly in the center (apparently, there were problems in order to get exactly in the center. But we did it!).

The smartphone will have 3 colors – tropical green, white and gray, like stardust.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

A little about the main characteristics of a smartphone. The screen of the smartphone is 6.67 inches, it is IPS LCD. Instead of the cutouts that have already had time to fill the teeth, there is now a “hole” in the screen. Xiaomi also certified its screen with the German studio TUV Rheinland. TUV Rheinland is a world leader in independent inspection services, founded 145 years ago. I wonder why Xiaomi suddenly went to test their screens. The fact is that TUV Rheinland inspects everything in general, from bridges and railways to cyber security audits. That is, in essence, the company is simply confirming. In this case, Xiaomi was asked to confirm that the smartphone is gentle on the eyes (filters out blue), and TUV Rheinland confirmed this.

The smartphone will come with a factory film on the screen

Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is used to protect both the front and back panels. But the frame remains plastic. This is a slightly unusual solution. It seems to me that it is dictated by marketing. The question arose of how to make a smartphone visually and tactilely more premium, but at the same time without increasing the price of the chassis. The solution is glass, and the chassis is left plastic. This is also evidenced by the fact that the fingerprint scanner has moved to its side. It is combined with the power button.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

And finally – all important characteristics on one screen.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentationXiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

And then the speaker offered to watch smartphones live. And somehow “tropical green” in life is not as juicy as in the pictures. Or what do you think?

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Redmi Note 9 Pro has 4 main cameras.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

64 MP, f / 1.9, 26mm (wide), 1 / 1.72 ″, 0.8µm, PDAF
8 MP, f / 2.2, 119 ° (ultra wide angle), 1 / 4.0 ″, 1.12µm
5 MP, f / 2.4, (macro), 1 / 5.0 ″, 1.12µm, AF
2 MP, f / 2.4, (depth)

Xiaomi has come up with a new trick – cinematic portraits. The idea is to make the photo look like it was cut from a movie. This is achieved by adding black stripes at the top and bottom. Frame 2.39: 1. And for some reason I did not understand why and where. On Instagram, pictures are still 1: 1. Well, probably for Facebook or Vkontakte it will do. Your thoughts?

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Xiaomi continues to develop the theme with macro cameras. And the first attempts in this area raised a lot of questions for me, since they used 2 MP lenses for macro photography. But in Redmi Note 9 Pro, a 5 MP camera is intended for these purposes. And this is already something. Perhaps I am wrong, but in my understanding for macro photography, on the contrary, you need a very high-quality camera, since when shooting close, there is usually a certain lack of light.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Among other highlights, we singled out the possibility of shooting in RAW. And there is also a new video mode, which has a cinematic zoom, that is, a smooth increase. There was also an option to lock focus and exposure (after all, there was this function, it is not clear why it is presented as a highlight). Well, the main thing was left with cinematic shooting in 4K. Here I also did not quite understand what was happening, I suppose it’s all about the format – 2.39: 1.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Xiaomi also came up with a new shooting mode, calling it “Kaleidoscope”. Absolutely accurate name, if you have ever looked through a kaleidoscope, you will immediately understand what it is about. After shooting, you can add background music. Obviously, this option was created specifically for TikTokers.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

A kaleidoscope is also available for the front camera. By the way, in addition to the usual selfies, there are also slow motion selfie (well, you watched the iPhone presentation? It’s the same here).

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentationXiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

A little about other characteristics of the device… The smartphone is equipped with Snapdragon 720G. G in the name means that there is enhanced graphics, which are 10-15% more powerful than the usual version of the chipset. Snapdragon 720G is not the fastest chipset, but it is still quite powerful (8 cores up to 2.3 GHz), while it is made using 8 nm technology, that is, the most modern.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Redmi Note 9 Pro comes with a powerful 5 mAh battery. Coupled with a good chipset and up-to-date software, the smartphone can easily survive the stated 000 days without recharging. By the way, Xiaomi, apparently spurred on by the same realme, brought in a 2W fast charger.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentationXiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

The flagship is all about the feeling of premium, which is why Redmi Note 9 Pro has a premium vibration motor. Here, by the way, is an interesting story. Conventional rotating motors are superior in vibration force to linear motors with Z-axis, and not only them, but also motors with X-axis (Z-axis and X-axis linear motors). For understanding: the names of the motors are tied to the axes along which the motor moves to create vibration. The Z-axis is the depth axis, that is, the movements of the motor are limited by the thickness of the smartphone. X / Y-axis are motors moving horizontally.

However, if a cheap vibration comes from an ordinary motor, then the Z-shaped motors vibrate less, but give the user the effect of vibration “like a stretched string”, when when typing messages it seems that the smartphone is ringing tactilely. In general, the most premium ones are horizontal motors, that is, with an X-axis. The most advanced horizontal motor in the iPhone, better known as the Apple Taptic Engine.

And finally, the main characteristics of Redmi Note 9 Pro in one slide.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

And now the most important thing is the price! $ 269 for 6GB / 64GB and $ 299 for 6GB / 128GB.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Redmi Note 9

As the name suggests, this is a simplified version. However, in fact, this is a completely different smartphone – there is a different chipset, different cameras, a different screen and a different type of cutout, a different design.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

The fingerprint reader is located at the back center under the camera module. I wonder if you will hurt the lenses?

The Redmi Note 9 has a less premium design. As a chipset, they decided to use MediaTek Helio G85, made according to the 12 nm process technology. By the way, this chipset is weaker than in Redmi Note 8 Pro (there was Helio G90T), but more powerful than in Redmi Note 8 (Snapdragon 665). For comparison, in AnTuTu, the 90T chipset gets 288 thousand points, the G85 – 235 thousand points, and the Snapdragon 665 – 176 thousand points. Here, apparently, it depends on the Antutu versions, since Xiaomi from the stage named the figure of 205 thousand points for the G85.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

The cameras of the smartphone are slightly worse. And if 48 MP instead of 64 MP can be survived, then using the typical 2 MP for a macro camera is upsetting. The smartphone has a “Document Scanner” mode. Xiaomi has already talked about this feature in past presentations. You can take a photo of a page of text, and then remove the shadow from the smartphone. Students will appreciate it!

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

And now the main characteristics in one slide – and the price.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

So the price for smartphones is: 3GB / 64GB – $ 199, 4GB / 128GB – $ 249.

Note me 10 Lite

And then Xiaomi dispersed altogether and presented a lighter version of its main affordable photosmartphone.

Along the way, Xiaomi talked about the success of the original model. It turns out that they organized a photoset on Mi Note 10 for Elle magazine (yes, ours, Russian!). Well, in all sorts of media, the smartphone was praised. But the collaboration with Elle is a success! For example, I didn’t even know that such a magazine still existed!

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Along the way, Xiaomi humiliated the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite and iPhone SE. At the same time, we did it as clearly as possible! We just compared the number of megapixels in cameras.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

This is very funny!

The price for 6 GB / 64 GB is 349 euros, and for 6 GB / 128 GB is 399 euros. By the way, every time the price of a smartphone is announced, wild applause and a roar of approval sound in the background. I immediately imagine how Mi-fans are raging in front of the screens of their smartphones.

Let’s compare smartphones.

Mi Smart Standing Fan 1C

And finally, Xiaomi showed a smart fan. After all, summer is just around the corner!

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite presentation

Mi Smart Standing Fan 1C is quiet (37dB) and can be controlled via Google Assistant. And the recommended price is 40 euros!

Conclusion

Everything is in the best traditions of Xiaomi – solid products at an interesting price. I’d like to test Redmi Note 9 Pro and Mi Note 10 Lite. Smartphones turned out to be exemplary to some extent. If you believe the promises, then there are good screens and excellent cameras, and even big batteries, and in general everything is there, including an infrared remote control to control the TV!
