It seems like not a week goes by without us hearing from the most prolific mobile phone makers, with Xiaomi being a firm member of this group. After some leaks, the official confirmation of the Xiaomi Redmi 9, a new mid-range mobile looking to compete on price with a tighter configuration than that of the Redmi Note 9 family.

An already global starting price (and already available in Spain) less than 200 euros, without sacrificing aspects such as the FullHD + screen or a processor like the Helio G80 from MediaTek, intended for the mid-range player. With a design somewhat reminiscent of the POCO X2, it also follows the trend of the striking and shiny rear.

Fashionable and familiar design (both ways)

Xiaomi promises that its new Redmi 9 has anti fingerprint wavy texture, which we will have to check in its test, but that would be somewhat advantageous compared to so much rear with a reflective finish and at the same time quite prone to getting dirty. What stands out is this bet on brightness and gradients, since one of the colors (Sunset Purple) changes from one tone to another.


As for the front, the Redmi 9 maintains the pseudo teardrop to top off your screen 6.53 inch IPS with FullHD + resolution, thus being at the height of other more advanced mid-range proposals without integrating the fingerprint reader (which is inserted in the camera module). It is TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified and protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
