Design and Display

The Xiaomi Redmi 9 design appears to be a blend of elements we have seen in the past. There isn’t anything new and neither is there anything to be super wowed about.

On the rear, we have four cameras, a capacitive fingerprint sensor encompassed in a circle that resembles that of the Xiaomi Redmi K30.  You will also find the Redmui branding on the rear, which somehow indicates its Xiaomi Smartphone.

Upfront we have a 6.53-inch IPS LCD display, which has a drop notch that houses its front-facing camera. This display has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 and a screen density of 395 PPI.

Build quality came in as expected. You have got plastic on the rear, plastic on the frame, and gorilla glass 3 upfront.
