Design & Display
Talking about the design of both the devices, Redmi Note 9 Pro is an all-glass front and back device, protected by Gorilla Glass 5. This results in making a device quite over 200gm. At the back, it has a quad-camera setup in the middle while talking about the front we get a central cut out for the selfie shooter. While on Realme we have a plastic back and same old Realme Camera design, with all four cameras standing vertically on the left side.
At the front we get a punch hole for the selfie shooter on the top left corner. Talking about the front, Realme me excels here with its 6.5-inch display with the refresh rate of 90Hz. It will definitely look and feel smoother than the 6.67-inch 60Hz panel on the Redmi Note 9. While the Redmi Note 9 Pro’s display is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, Realme has older Gorilla Glass 3.
Performance and Software
Here Redmi Note 9 Pro uses Snapdragon 720G along with Adreno 618 GPU. This SoC is manufactured under 7nm FinFet technology. This results in great performance without sucking up more power. While the Realme 6 uses Helio G90T with Mali-G76 MC4 for the GPU. It is a 12nm chip and was also used in Redmi Note 8 Pro last year. Still Helio G90T is a very powerful Mid-range chip.
Helio G90T along with a 90Hz display can produce some seriously smooth performance on Realme 6. Both can handle day-to-day tasks like a champ. Even gaming can’t be a problem for any of them. Talking about the Software Redmi Note 9 Pro ships with MIUI 11 whereas Relame has its own Realme UI. Both come with Android 10 out of the box.
In the camera department, we can see a Quad Camera set-up on both of these devices. Redmi Note 9 Pro packs a 48MP Sony sensor, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor. On the other hand, Realme 6 comes with 64MP Samsung ISOCELL sensor, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, and 2MP B/W Depth lenses. During daylight, these can produce some great shots for your social media uploads.
At the front, we get a 16MP shooter on both, where Realme has a much larger 2.0 aperture. Both devices and records up to 4K 30fps with their primary shooter. Here Redmi Note 9 Pro can also go up to 960fps at 720 for those slo-mo shots. We get all the regular software features such as HDR, Panorama, and Night Mode with both the devices.
As Redmi has a bigger battery Redmi should be a winner. Is it? Here we have a mixed bag of things. Though Redmi packs a larger 5020mAh battery, it is restricted to 18W charging capacity. Whereas 4300mAh battery of Realme can be charged at whooping 30W.
With larger battery capacity and power-efficient, 7nm Chipset on the Redmi Note 9 can easily last longer compared to Realme 6. While on the Realme 6 side of things, 12nm SoC and 90Hz display can suck up more battery, but you can charge 0-100% in just 55 minutes.
The recently launched Realme 6 has been priced at Rs.33,990 for its 8GB+128GB variant. As of now, it’s the only variant available here in Nepal. While you can get a 6GB+128GB variant of Note 9 Pro for Rs.29,999.
