With its high cost performance, the popularity of the Redmi Note 9 series has continued to rise after the release. The Note 9 series use three different processors: Snapdragon 750G, Dimensity 800U and Snapdragon 662. This is the first time that Redmi has used two manufacturers and three different chips in the same product series.
The performance of the Note 9 is not much different from the Note 9 Pro. The starting price is only 300 yuan ($46) more expensive than the Note 9 4G, and it supports 5G. In terms of performance improvement, the 300 yuan ($46) is obviously worth spending. From the actual measurement, the performance of the Dimensity 800U on the Note 9 and the Snapdragon 750G on the Note 9 Pro are not much different. The score gap of AnTuTu V8 is 3.7%. In actual use, the somatosensory is not too obvious.
In addition, the Dimensity 800U adopts 7nm flagship process. The CPU part uses 2 large A76 cores and 6 A55 performance cores to balance performance and power consumption. The integrated 5G baseband design not only supports NSA/SA 5G dual mode, but also supports dual SIM card 5G standby at the same time. Compared with the previous generation of 5G+4G, it has realized dual 5G simultaneous network stationing.
Today, Lu Weibing posted on Weibo that the thousand-yuan phone is the time to switch from 4G to 5G. Today, 5G is still much more expensive than 4G (mainly processor and radio frequency). How to maintain other configurations without shrinking under the high cost of 5G? It is the biggest consideration when planning the Note 9 product.
Therefore, the Note 9 chooses the Dimensity 800U processor, plus a large battery of 5000mAh. It also uses a hole-punch screen, with large memory (from 6+128GB). With stereo sound, linear motor, infrared remote control, AG technology, it is fully upgraded over the Note 8. But the price is 100 yuan ($16) lower.
In his view, the Note 9 may be a new generation of thousand-yuan magic machine. It may be the most powerful smartphone at the same price. In terms of price, the Redmi Note 9 6+128GB version is 1299 yuan ($198), the 8+128GB version is 1499 yuan ($228). And the 8+256GB version is 1699 yuan ($259).
