    For the Indian market, Redmi has quietly released the Redmi 9 Activ. Amazon has established a separate listing for the gadget with all the essential specs listed. The new Redmi phone is identical to the Redmi 9. It has the same twin back cameras and waterdrop notch HD+ display.  Let’s take a quick look at Redmi 9 Activ specifications, sale date, and all other details.

    Redmi 9 Activ price in India 

    The Redmi 9 Activ starts at Rs. 9,499 for 4GB + 64GB storage. The phone also comes with 6GB + 128GB storage for Rs. 10,999. It comes in Carbon Black, Coral Green, and Metallic Purple and can be purchased on Amazon, Mi.com, Mi Home, and Mi Studio.

    Design 

    The main attraction in the design section is the anti-slip textured design on the rear, which prevents fingerprint smudges from keeping the surface clean. For the rest, the device features a plastic build and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor has been added in the Redmi 9 Activ that is missing in the Redmi 9A Sport and 9i Sport. However, the Type-C charging port is still missing here, which goes against this device. The overall weight of the Redmi 9 Activ is 194 grams, so you won’t find it too heavy to hold and it won’t stretch your pockets. 

    Display 

    For offering a decent visual experience, there is a 6.53-inch HD+ Dot Drop display with HD+ resolution. However, a 720-pixel resolution and absence of FHD+ resolution go against the Redmi 9 Activ. Apart from this, the display supports a normal refresh rate, which again is disliked by gamers.

    Performance 

    The chipset used here is MediaTek Helio G35, which is good for basic usage, while the company claims the Hyper Engine Game technology to provide a decent gaming experience. However, there is enough 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, which is ideal for storing large files and for seamless multitasking. On the software front, the Redmi 9 Active runs on MIUI 12 and that means a better user interface. There is no 5G, so you have to work with 4G bands.

    Camera 

    The camera section is better here as compared to the Redmi 9A Sport and the Redmi 9i Sport. The Redmi 9 Activ comes with a 13MP AI dual camera, featuring a 13MP main sensor accompanied by a 2MP depth sensor. The rear camera features phase detection autofocus HDR and Face recognition. On the front, there is a 5MP selfie camera, which becomes a glitch and a deal-breaker for those who are looking for a camera phone at an affordable price tag. 

    Battery 

    For powering the whole device, the Redmi 9 Activ uses a large 5000 mAh battery, which is capable of providing a full day usage. For refilling the battery, you’ve got a 10W charger in the box, so it is going to take a lot of time to refill the battery. Also, the Type-C charging port is not there. 

    Verdict 

    The Redmi 9 Activ is the best smartphone among the recently launched affordable devices by the Xiaomi brand with its large battery and huge RAM and storage capacity. However, when compared with other devices from the same price range, it falls short of the competitive features
