Early Opinions

First of all, I want you to know what my primary phone aka Note 8 Pro has to say. My Redmi Note 8 Pro is feeling sad, “A budget phone will be stealing my signature design, so sad!”

Redmi 9

Anyways jokes apart, I can see the capability the Redmi 9 will have. The phone actually is very similar to Redmi Note 9 but will provide more value.
