As per Agarwal, the Redmi Note 9 Pro will arrive with a 6.67-inch FHD+ display sporting a tall 20:9 aspect ratio and a hole-punch cutout housing a 16MP selfie camera. Under the hood, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 720G chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage.
The upcoming budget phone is tipped to have a quad-camera array at the rear, featuring a 48MP main sensor. It will also have an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 5MP macro lens, and a depth camera. Keeping the lights on will be a 5,020mAh battery with 18W fast charging. As for color options, Agarwal claims the Redmi Note 9 Pro will be offered in Aurora Blue, Glacier White, and Interstellar Black.
If this leak is accurate, the Redmi Note 9 Pro will only be a minor upgrade over the Redmi Note 8 Pro in most areas. And the Redmi Note 8 Pro will actually have a slight edge in the camera department, thanks to its higher resolution 64MP primary sensor. The Realme 6 Pro, which was launched last week, also comes with a 64MP quad-camera system and packs a 90Hz display.
