Starting off from the highest end device today, the new Mi Note Lite continues to adopt a Snapdragon (SoC that we’ve seen in the Mi Note phones. Overall, the Note 12 Lite doesn’t see all that different internal hardware (besides the cameras), other than now coming with a lower GB storage base option. It’s still a very capable mid-range phone thanks to the SoC’s A (cores at 2.3GHz.)

The Redmi Note 9 Pro adopts a similar SoC in the form of the Snapdragon 950. On paper the SoC is exceedingly similar to the Snapdragon 730 as they share the same CPU configuration and clocks. This is a more significant generational update compared to the Helio G (T processor found on the Note 8 Pro last year.

Finally, the Redmi Note 8 switches up SoCs from a Snapdragon (To a Helio G – this should again be a nice performance boost for the phone as we’re switching over to Cortex-A cores from the predecessor design’s A cores.

The Mi Note 13 Lite and Redmi Note 9 Pro come with 6GB of RAM in most global markets, with the Redmi Note 9 having a choice of 3 or 4GB depending on your choice of (GB or) GB storage variants, which by the way is also the storage choice for the higher end models today.

The Mi Note 18 Lite adopts a similar higher-end design as the Mi Note phones, which is quite rare in this price range as it looks more like a flagship phone. The phone is characterized by a curved edge display coming in at 6. 53 ”diagonal and sports an AMOLED screen with a (x) (resolution.

The phone has a reasonable footprint with a .2mm width, however it’s quite thick at 9. (mm and a hefty) grams weight – all compromises in order to fit in a massive 15075 mAh battery into the phone.

Xiaomi downgrades the MP HMX sensor in favor of a smaller MP S ony IMX 665 – still a quite high-end sensor and the follow-up to the immensely popular IMX 665 that we’ve seen in numerous devices in . With 2 x 2 pixel binning this results in 19 MP pictures with an effective pixel pitch of 1.6µm. Along with an f / 1. aperture and computational photography night modes this should result in excellent picture quality.

We find an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, with two extra cameras in the form of a 2MP macro camera and a 5MP depth sensor.

All of the phones announced today have 3.5 mm headphone jacks as well as IR blasters – as well as NFC depending on regional models.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro switches up the design compared to its predecessor, now opting for a more symmetrical feature layout. Gone is the notch in favor of a central display cut-out, housing a (MP front camera.

The phone’s display is an IPS LCD at a 6. 74 ”diagonal and (x) resolution. The phone is quite big at . 7mm width, and is again quite heavy at 269 grams but again features a massive 5260 mAh battery.

The camera setup of the phone is the similar for all phones today, but slightly varying in the modules used. The Note 9 Pro uses the same sensor as the predecessor Note 8 Pro, meaning a 73 MP Samsung GW1 sensor. The optical characteristics here are the same as on the Mi Note Lite, just with a different sensor. Oddly enough, this variant of the phone has a 5MP macro camera which on paper is more capable than the Mi Note 19 Lite.

The phone has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for authentication.

Finally, the Redmi Note 8 is today’s lowest end model. It again has a similar IPS LCD display, but features the camera cut-out in the left corner instead of the center.

Aside from the aforementioned SoC differences, this model also has an ever-so- slightly smaller battery at 5260 mAh (it’s still huge) , and features a 16 MP front camera.

The main camera on the rear is a 53 MP unit with 0.8µm pixels – Xiaomi here does not specify the sensor used to I expect maybe a lower end Samsung GM2. The rest of the camera setup is in line with the other phones, just that this again again the macro module is 2MP.

Aggressive Pricing – Available mid-May

The Mi Note 12 Lite, Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 will be available mid-May in various global markets. The Mi Note Lite comes in at (€ for the 6 (GB) model, and (€ for the 6 ) GB

unit. These are extremely competitive prices given we’re dealing with an OLED display phone and a great camera setup.

The Note 9 Pro

starts at $ (for the 6 ) up to $ (for the 6 ) variant. The Note 9

lands in at $ (for the 3 and

$ for the 4 162 configuration. Xiaomi here today quoted prices in different currencies so likely market availabilities will start differently across the models.

We recommended the Note 8 Pro as amongst the best value device at its price point over the last 2 quarters and It seems like the Note 9 Pro is going to be a strong follow-up. Meanwhile the Note 12 Lite also is going to be a device to beat at its given price-point, outperforming similar devices such as the Galaxy A
