Redmi has started the year quite strongly, presenting several models such as the Redmi Note 9, Note 9S, and Note 9 Pro. All these devices are framed between the lower-middle range and mid-range, without any of the three proposals being able to enjoy 5G connectivity. This is close to changing according to the latest information leaked on TENAA, as a Redmi with 5G technology is on the way.
It is, according to TENAA, a variant of the Redmi 9 with 5G connectivity. The peculiarity is that it will not arrive with the Qualcomm 765G (the processor that we are seeing the most in the mid-range 5G), but rather from a MediaTek 800 series platform.
Redmi Note 9 spirit powered with 5G connectivity
TENAA has confirmed the existence of a new Redmi model with 5G connectivity. As we can see in the photographs, it is a device from the Redmi 9 line, identical to the rest of its family members. The dimensions of the terminal are also detailed: 164.15×75.75×8.99 millimeters and a weight of 206 grams. However, at the hardware level, there are jumps.
The first is the 6.57-inch panel, which in this case it has OLED technology, maintaining the Full HD + resolution. This panel is completely different from the IPS of its brothers, so we find a small U-shaped notch at the top instead of the hole on the screen.
MediaTek has introduced the turbo in 2020. Its 800 series is manufactured in a 7-nanometer process and has support for 5G SA and NSA
Regarding the processor, it is expected to be from the MediaTek 800 series, an upper-middle-range platform to democratize 5G. There is talk that it can be the Dimensional 800+ or Dimensional 820, although this will be answered next Monday. This processor will be accompanied by configurations of 4, 6, and 8 GB of RAM, as well as 64, 128, and 256 GB of internal memory expandable through microSD cards. At the battery level, TENAA details a 4,500mAh battery with a 22.5W fast charge.
The cameras of the terminal are also detailed, starring a 48-megapixel main sensor accompanied by an ultra-wide-angle and a depth sensor, without any macros around here. Regarding the selfie, a single 16-megapixel camera. Additional features? USB C, Dual 4G, 5G SA / NSA, dual-band WiFi, and Bluetooth 5.0, among others.
