The Redmi Note 9 Pro is all set to be introduced on March 12. Now, ahead of the launch, the device has been spotted on Geekbench. Further, a live image of the phone's back panel has leaked online. The image showcases the quad rear camera setup on the blue-coloured back. It resides in a square-shaped module that was also teased by the company.
As for the Geekbench listing, the Redmi Note 9 Pro scored 569 in the single-core test and 1755 in the multi-core test. There is "curtana" mentioned in the motherboard field which could be the codename of the smartphone or the CPU. It will be powered by a Qualcomm chipset that includes an octa-core processor with 1.80GHz base frequency. It could be the Snapdragon 720G. For reference, its predecessor, the Redmi Note 8 Pro was fueled by a MediaTek chipset, namely, the Helio G90T SoC.
On the listing, the device is equipped with 6GB RAM and comes pre-installed with Android 10. The other expected features of the Note 9 Pro are 22.5W fast charging, and gaming capabilities.
Another leaked render shows a punch-hole cutout in the top-left corner for housing the front-facing snapper. There's no fingerprint scanner visible on the phone's back panel which could mean that the company has opted to integrate it with the power button.
Redmi was supposed to hold an on-ground event on March 12. However, it got cancelled over the Coronavirus outbreak. The phone is expected to be launched alongside the Redmi Note 9. Now, the event will be live-streamed online on March 12.
