Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G has been officially launched in China today. The Note 9 series for China includes three phones – the Redmi Note 9 5G, Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, and Redmi Note 9 4G. It goes without saying that the major highlight of the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is its 108-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HM2 primary camera. Other highlights of the phone include a 120Hz display and large battery with fast charging.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is a rebranded version of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite that debuted in global markets in September. The only major difference between the two handsets is that the Mi 10T Lite has a 64-megapixel primary camera instead of the 108-megapixel camera.
