Both the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9’s cinematic portraits and video mode capture content with a 2.39:1 aspect ratio – the same format commonly used in films.

Packing a large 5020mAh (typ) battery, the Redmi Note 9 Pro holds enough power to last until the next day without compromising on slim design.
