Xiaomi is on a streak of releases as it makes the budget-friendly Redmi 9 available in the Philippines. As a successor to last year’s Redmi 8, the Redmi 9 continues to offer great value-for-money with upgrades like quad-rear cameras and a bigger display.

Here’s an unboxing video of Tech YouTuber Isa Rodriguez that you might want to watch:

Why should you consider Xiaomi’s new budget champ? We give you five reasons:

Quad rear cameras on a budget phone

When you talk about budget, sub-Php 8k phones, oftentimes they would come with triple rear camera setups. That’s not the case with the Redmi 9, as this bad boy comes with four rear cameras: a 13-megapixel main rear camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, 2-megapixel depth sensor, and 5-megapixel macro camera. That set of cameras should do the trick for most of your photo and video needs.

Big battery with fast charging

No one likes making their phones dependent with power banks, and the Redmi 9 solves that with its generous 5000mAh battery that can last you over a day (or up to two days depending on your usage). Topping it up is not a chore either, as its support for 18w wired charging lets you top up that big battery in around 2.5 hours.

Display that’s fine with Netflix

The Redmi 9 comes with a 6.53-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution, making it great for playing games and watching videos. Speaking of videos, the Redmi 9 has a Widevine L1 codec, which basically means that you can stream videos on platforms like Netflix in Full HD. That’s pretty awesome, right?

Powerful processor for your gaming needs

Instead of the Snapdragon 439, the Redmi 9 uses a newer Helio G80 processor. This new budget processor from MediaTek has enough muscle to handle some of your favorite mobile game titles with no sweat. Not to mention, this processor’s updated AI tricks also help in maximizing the Redmi 9’s cameras.

It is affordable!

You are getting all of these great features at a compelling price tag: Php 6,990 for the 3GB/32GB model and Php 7,490 for the 4GB /64GB model. If that’s not enough, you can even get the 3GB/32GB model for Php 500 less when you purchase it via Lazada starting midnight (that’s 1 minute after 11:59PM tonight).

The Redmi 9 is still listed as “OUT OF STOCK” as of this writing but come midnight, it will be available with the discount. Click here to add to cart already so you will just get notified when it is already available.
