Mi 9 Pro 5G- First Xiaomi 5G Phone That Ships with 45W Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Charger That Also Supports USB Power Delivery 3.0 PPS Over USB Type-A

As the first Xiaomi 5G capable phone, the Mi 9 Pro 5G joins other competing phones like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and Huawei Mate30 Pro to support the latest 5G LTE mobile networks. The Mi 9 Pro 5G is also the first Xiaomi phone to offer charging up to 45W- a big jump from 27W on the Mi 9- using Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ technology. 45W based charging is also claimed to be supported by the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ but using USB Power Delivery technology. 

With Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+, the Mi 9 Pro 5G can charge its battery quickly using USB Power Delivery 3.0, PPS (Programmable Power Supply), and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology over USB Type-C. The phone also gets a newer and faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and Adreno 640 GPU similar to the Mi 9.

For wireless charging the Mi 9 Pro 5G now supports up to 30W which is slightly higher power than 27W on the Huawei Mate30 Pro.

We can see how the Mi 9 Pro 5G looks like below that was purchased from a Xiaomi store in China not long ago. 

Xiaomi makes sure to advertise the phone's 5G capability on the front of the Mi 9 Pro 5G box.

The Mi 9 Pro 5G offers up to 512GB RAM memory compared to max 128GB RAM on the Mi 9.

The Mi 9 Pro 5G supports reverse wireless charging of 10W on top of 30W wireless output which means the phone can also act as a power bank to wirelessly charge its own Mi series or other Qi enabled phones. This reverse wireless charging capability is also seen on other competing phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note10+Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and Huawei Mate30 Pro.

Ironically the Mi 9 Pro 5G still ships with a USB Type-A QC3 based charger instead of a QC4+ based which the phone supports. Despite this the charger supports up to 45W which should provide a much faster charging compared to the Mi 9's 27W QC3 based charging. The rest of the accessories remain the same as the ones that shipped with most Xiaomi phones which consists of a USB Type-A to Type-C cable, SIM eject tool, clear soft case, documentation and a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm audio adapter for connecting to your traditional audio headphones from the phone's USB Type-C port.

The Xiaomi 45W QC3 charger supports power profiles of 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps), 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps), 40 watts (10 volts @ 4 amps) and 45 watts (20 volts @ 2.25 amps) for charging out. We also tested this 45W QC3 charger to actually negotiate over USB Power Delivery 3.0 based PPS technology using the USB Type-A to Type-C cable that is included in the Mi 9 Pro 5G's box.

The supplied USB Type-A to Type-C cable accessory should be used to link up the Mi 9 Pro 5G and the Xiaomi 45W QC3 charger for fastest charging. Note that this cable is rated 5A.

The Mi 9 Pro 5G is still heavier than the Mi 9 even though there's not much difference in size between the two models.  

The Mi 9 series shares similar camera specs and alignment for both front and rear cameras. 

Using the USB Power Delivery Compliance C2 Tester from Granite River Labs to run just a subset of the full USB Power Delivery compliance test suite, compliance failures were observed for the Mi 9 Pro 5G.
