I’ve got the 4 GB ram 64 GB variant here with me and it's made in India. So let's go ahead this device and take our first look at the Redmi 9 power first thing to come out of the box is the transparent case along with some documentation.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power Charging

There’s a sim eject tool as well keep that aside this is the Redmi 9 power. it on and see if it has some charge then let's check out the charger is the charging cable it's a type c port not surprised and here. You have a 22.5 watt charger that's bundled in the box.

Now the thing is that this phone supports 18 watt charging only but you do get a 22.5 watt charger. Now it remains to be seen if it is capable of charging at full speed or if it's not going to do it.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power Processor

I’m going to keep the charger and the cable aside and show you the smartphone as you can see it is running MIUI 12. Now this is running on top of android 10. There’s no android 11 running on the smartphone now like the box suggested.

This is a 6.53 inch a full HD plus display with a tiny dew drop notch at the top that houses an 8 megapixel selfie camera at the back as you can see. It’s got a quad camera set up here.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power Camera

So it has a 48 megapixel primary camera and 8 megapixel ultra-wide angle camera. We’ve got a 2 megapixel macro camera and a 2 megapixel depth sensor. I’ve got big Redmi branding at the back. This is not very common on Redmi smartphones.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power fingerprint

You usually have a small one here so and the back is completely textured which means that it should be able to resist your fingerprints while I’m setting it up.

I’ll talk about the way it's designed as well as you can see the power and the volume buttons are on the right side of the device and the fingerprint scanner is embedded in the power button itself. The power button is reachable easily and the volume buttons are reachable easily as well on the left you have the sim tray slot.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power Sound

Now at the top you've got a 3.5 mm headphone jack this is the blaster and this looks like a secondary speaker at the bottom. You’ve got the primary speaker the USB type-c port and the primary microphone. Now the phone has dual stereo speakers set it up and while it's setting up.

Let me talk about the processor that's powering. It so you'd get a QUALCOMM snapdragon 662. So now I’ve seen it powering the Moto G9 smartphone as well. You get one ram option that is 4GB of ram and there's two storage options.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power Storages

You do have the option to choose between 64 GB of internal storage and 128 GB of internal storage. I have the 64 GB model and this is the electric green color finish. It’s very easy to scan your finger as you can see that's where your thumb wouldn't rest naturally.

While you are holding the device now while you are setting the device up there is an option for personalized ads you can switch that off diagnostic data switch. It off I don't like to send all of these information glance for me.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power Lock screen

Now this is the wallpaper that you see on the lock screen now by default. It is enabled so you will get different wallpapers a wallpaper carousel rather on the lock screen. So I don't like it.  Would want to switch that off so this is something that you will need to pay attention while you're setting up the device you do have the option to select the kind of launcher that you want.

I am going to go with the classic if you want an app drawer you can go that go for that as well. You have two theme options here between classic and limitless select classic well. Again get apps is there on this smartphone and it is recommending a couple of apps to install.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power Apps

I don't want these apps installed on the device. So I am going to skip this step as you can see you've got a promotional notification even before setting up the device.

So as you can see the device is now setup. I’ve gotten a get apps notification again on the device and this is the first look you just set up. The device and while you do have a couple of pre-installed apps. You’ve got awesome rummy mods dream 11 Netflix that comes pre-installed a couple of games here that company installed as well.

There’s a few more apps amazon shopping, Facebook, WPS office, LinkedIn that comes in pre-installed and in terms of notifications well. You do have notifications from mods and dream11 already. So I’m not a big fan of having notifications from these spam.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power MIUI 12.0

My apps right when the device is set up. Let’s quickly take a look at the build version on the device as you can see. You’ve got MIUI 12.0.2running on the device and it is running on top of android 10 here and in terms of security patch.

You have got the November security patch which is acceptable now since this has a stereo speakers. I’m a little curious to see how these work so let's quickly try out a video now. I’ll tell you that the bottom firing speaker is a lot all right guys well.

It’s louder than the top firing one you do get a stereo like effect uh. However it's not very equal i think that the bottom firing one is a little louder than the top one. I was expecting them to use the earpiece itself.

Xiaomi Redmi 9 power speakers

But it looks like they've got another set of speakers here. It will be interesting to see how games. You know feel while you're playing with stereo speakers on this device. I will be testing out this phone completely giving your verdict on the battery and the cameras as well.

so that was a quick unboxing and our first look at this Redmi nine power now what do you think about this. Let me know that in the comments down below and as always for all things tech stay tuned to
