Redmi 9

Xiaomi has today launched its highly anticipated budget phone – the Redmi 9 – in Spain. The latest bread-and-butter entry in the core Redmi series offers some impressive specs and an appealing design at an extremely affordable price point of just €139 (~$157), easily undercutting the competition from Motorola and fellow Chinese smartphone brands.

The Redmi 9 offers a 6.53-inch FHD+ display that is kept lit by a large 5,020 mAh battery, complete with support for 18W fast charging via a USB Type-C port. The gaming-centric MediaTek Helio G80 processor keeps it running, paired with up to 4 gigs of RAM and 64GB onboard storage.

At the back, you’ll find a 13MP main camera, assisted by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor, while the waterdrop notch on the front houses an 8MP selfie snapper. And despite being a budget phone, it offers NFC support for contactless payments and also has an IR blaster.
