Announcement. Xiaomi Redmi 9 - is there NFC?

Actually, everything was already known about Xiaomi Redmi 9. Well, almost everything. Nevertheless, the device appeared on the official website only today.

And on Aliexpress trade is already in full swing. For the younger version 3 + 32 GB they want $ 149.27 (₽10400). But if you put it in the basket right now, you can save a lot of money, pay only $ 129 (₽9030).

One clumsy phrase, however, is alarming: “Surprise: Xiaomi mi store will select lucky buyers to send redmi 9 that supports NFC pay”). The situation is slightly clarified by the official website, where it is written in black and white that the presence of NFC depends on the market. Somewhere devices with NFC will be sold, somewhere without. It is logical to assume that on Aliexpress there will be both those and others. So be careful.

Now a few words about the device itself. Xiaomi Redmi 9 is a typical modern budget employee in the good sense of the word.

Let's start with the sad. No dual band Wi-Fi. And there seems to be no gyro. It seems to be nothing more to be sad about. Because the rest is sheer fun.

The "gaming" chipset MediaTek Helio G80. It does not belong to the top, but it is gaining about two hundred thousand points in AnTuTu.

Memory. 3 or 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of permanent memory. Support for memory cards is. The tray seems to be separate.

The screen is large, because who is making the small screens now? So 6.53 ″ and IPS matrix. The resolution is high, 1080 × 2340 (395 ppi). A small drop-shaped cutout under the camera.

Battery capacity, 5020 mAh. Charging is not very fast, but still 10 watts is 10 watts. Three hours charge with a guarantee.

There are a lot of cameras. Front camera 8 MP. Rear quartet 13 + 8 + 5 + 2 MP (main, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor). Nothing can be said about quality, we are waiting for the first reviews.
