Imaging is covered by a quad camera array on the rear, featuring a 48-megapixel primary sensor of an f/1.79 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor of an f/2.2 aperture and 118-degree wide field-of-view, a 2MP depth and a 2MP macro sensor. On the front, the phone has a 13MP selfie camera.
The Redmi Note 9 is powered by MediaTek Helio G85 system-on-chip, paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The phone has a 6.53-inch fullHD+ screen of 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The phone ships with Android 10 operating system-based MIUI 11 user interface. Powering the device is a 5,020 mAh battery, supported by 22.5W fast charger. The phone has P2i coating for resistance against minor water splashes.
