Today, Xiaomi’s Redmi held a new product launches, releasing the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi smartwatch.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro
It is worth mentioning that the Redmi Note 9 Pro is equipped with a 100MP camera. It is the first time that Xiaomi has delegated 100MP to the Redmi sub-brand. Lu Weibing, the vice president of Xiaomi and the general manager of the Redmi brand, opened with a talk show. He stated that the Redmi brand is going to popularize its high-end products.
Before releasing the new product, Lu Weibing first checked the performance of the previous generation products. The cumulative global sales of the Note series have reached 140 million units. So, in the global smartphone rankings in the first half of this year, Note 8 and 8 Pro ranked third and fourth, respectively.
As we posted before, the new Redmi Note 9 Pro is the first smartphone with the Snapdragon 750G processor. This handset sports a 120Hz high refresh screen.
Lu Weibing specifically added that now the speed of the direct output of 100MP has increased significantly. The previous Xiaomi Mi CC 9 Pro is 4.3 seconds, while the Note 9 Pro is 3.21 (shortened to 1.09) seconds.
The Note 9 Pro starts at 1,599 Yuan ($243). As the vice president mentioned, this price is awesome since the 100MP devices on the market start at 4,000 Yuan.
On top of that, there are also two other versions of the Note 9 series: the Note 9 5G and Note 9 4G. The Note 9 sports a Dimensity 800U processor, and the price starts at 1,299 Yuan ($197). The price of the Note 9 4G version is 999 Yuan ($152). Many of you can think that the continuous production of 4G smartphones is a waste of time. On the other hand, about 30% of users still prefer 4G. The Redmi product director Wang Teng insisted that these users consider that 4G speed is sufficient and power-efficient.
The Redmi Watch
The Redmi Watch uses a 1.4-inch screen with a heart rate monitoring function. Besides, it is waterproof to 50 meters and supports a multi-function NFC. What’s even more impressive is that this cheap smartwatch sports 7 days long battery life / 12 days long standby. The product costs 299 Yuan ($45).
During the talk show, Lu Weibing also added that Xiaomi is also upgrading offline channels and services. In terms of channels, every country will have a Mi Home in the next year, which will enhance the effectiveness of the brand. Speaking about services, Xiaomi also promotes the integration of sales and services, offline store filming, and other services.
Thus, Xiaomi launched the Note 9 Pro and Redmi smartwatch, and announced some plans for next year. If so, we will face tremendous sales, shipments, and new records next year.
