Xiaomi has added a new affordable phone to its bread-and-butter Redmi portfolio, and this one is called the Redmi Note 9. Starting at $199, it offers a lot more than what its asking price suggests, both in terms of design and internal hardware.

To start, it features a 6.53-inch FHD+ display that has a modern punch hole design with a cutout drilled in the top-left corner of the glass panel. Xiaomi has fitted the Redmi Note 9 with MediaTek’s all-new gaming-centric Helio G85 chip paired with up to 4 gigs of RAM.

The phone packs four rear cameras at the back that include a 48MP main snapper, an 8MP lens for wide-angle shots, and a couple of 2MP sensors for macro photography and depth sensing. You also get a 13MP front camera that supports HDR mode and portrait selfies.

Redmi Note 9 offers a sufficiently large 5,020mAh battery, complete with support for 18W fast charging, which is quite impressive for a phone in this price bracket. It comes in Forest Green, Midnight Grey, and Polar White colors, and will hit the shelves starting mid-May globally.
