We reviewed the Redmi Note 9 last week which had a significantly higher launch price, as compared to its predecessor, due to the recent hike in GST prices caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The launch price of the Redmi Note 9 came quite close to the Samsung Galaxy M21 and the recently launched Realme 6i. The former brings an AMOLED display with a visually-appealing and a less-cluttered One UI. The latter on the other hand, banks on the modern and higher refresh rate panel which is a good marketing sell and also delivers a more fluid user experience.
