Earlier today, Redmi officially announced that it will be launching the Redmi 9 Power in India on December 17. The company has also uploaded a webpage dedicated to the specific smartphone on the company's official website that teases the device power-packed battery, performance, display, camera, and more. While the smartphone is likely to be a slight variant of the earlier released Redmi Note 9 4G - China, tipset Ishan Agarwal shares an exclusive image of the renders. As reported by the website, the shared images show the rear side of the upcoming smartphone Redmi 9 Power. According to the images shown, the phone has a blue rear panel with a rectangular camera layout.
The similar Redmi Note 4G has already launched in China and Pakistan. However, it has an additional camera sensor that chinese version lacks. This is something we leakers have already reported. Consequently, the Redmi 9 Power and other versions will have an additional 2-megapixel macro sensor replacing the AI logo on the chinese variant. The rest of the render shows a 48-megapixel super quad camera instead of a logo. Additionally, the device has a textured rear panel, LED flashlight placement which are exactly like the chinese variant. The device will have a 48-megapixel primary camera sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, a 2-megapixel macro and depth sensor. The extra sensor aside, the Redmi 9 Power will mostly be the same as the Note 9 4G in China.
The phone will feature a 6.53-inch LCD FHD+ display. The device is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 662 SoC, and comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB and 128GB internal storage options. Other specs include an 8-megapixel selfie camera sensor, 6,000mAh battery with 18W charging. The phone runs on Android 10 out of the box. Also, the teaser page confirms that the phone will be available in black, green, and orange colors other than the blue color shown in the renders.
You can expect a good smartphone around $400 that will do most of the stuff people would want from a mobile, but what about a phone that costs almost half of that? HMD Global launched a new smartphone that costs just $199, and yet it doesn't sound too bad when it comes to its specs and features. The Nokia 5.3 has a large screen although, this isn't as sharp or bright as most phones are nowadays, but works great at this price.
The rear side of the device is plastic-made but comfortable to hold. The display is 6.55-inch large and weighs only 185 grams. It is manageable with one hand. There are two buttons on the phone - the power button and the volume button. On the opposite side, you can find the button for Google assistant which is pretty easy to mess up when picking up the phone or holding in one hand. The phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack and a single speaker at the bottom.
On the back of the side, there is a quad-camera system that is housed slightly above the fingerprint sensor. The design is okay and doesn't look too cheap or ugly that screams ‘cheap' when holding in your hands. The phone is available in cyan, sand, and charcoal color. Even the phone is only priced at $199, but it comes with four lens camera sensor.
The primary camera is of 13-megapixels and an f/1.8 aperture, with a secondary 5-megapixel ultra-wide camera lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. The selfie camera is housed inside the teardrop notch and of 8-megapixel. Nokia's 5.3 camera isn't good though. It could still improve as the software is too slow for four-cameras. I'd rather take a single camera phone than a four-camera phone that takes mediocre phones and painfully slow.
The phone is powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor with either 3GB, 4GB, or 6GB of RAM. It's the same chip used in the Motorola Moto G8, the Moto G Fast, and the G Power, and the results are similar. That means you can play games on the device but its' not a ROG phone 2. It may not give you the smoothest experience but never halt or devolves into an unplayable situation.
