"Aura Balance" design
Redmi started with a design they called "Aura Balance Design". The smartphone is made of glass from the front and back, while at the back it is a 3D curved glass. On the back is a system of 4 cameras in a square arrangement, exactly as we saw on the posters enticing the show.

Despite the smaller 6,44 ″ display, the Mi Max 3 is much larger in size than the Note 9 Pro Max. Very thin frames around the display play in favor of the novelty. The smartphone will be available in three beautiful colors, which you can see in the gallery below.
"For cameras" in the advisory Redmi
The new Redmi smartphone follows this motto, which suggests that the manufacturer has focused on cameras more than any other Redmi Note model before. The camera module contains the following sensors:

The functions also include night mode, new mode called "Pro Color"which significantly saturates the colors. This mode even works before the photo is taken, so the user will see the difference directly on the screen before taking the photo.
Another of the slogans of the new Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. But what exactly does maximum performance mean for Redmi in the affordable 2020 smartphone? The latest eight-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor manufactured by a modern 8 nm production process. Interestingly, this chipset is more powerful than last year's Snapdragon 730.
The manufacturer also compared the new Snapdragon 720G with the Helio G90T processor in the Redmi Note 8 Pro, as at first glance it may not seem like a significant upgrade in performance. Compared to Mediatek, 720G has a much more modern production process, 8 nm vs 12 nm, which is very much reflected in the efficiency of energy consumption and also in lower processor temperatures.
The processor contains an improved Adreno 618 graphics accelerator, which can handle even more demanding games. As usual, the benchmarks were not forgotten, where Redmi compares the competition with its novelty.
