To recall, the Xiaomi Redmi 9 was launched in China last month. The smartphone features MediaTek’s Helio G80 octa-core processor in the budget pricing in China, and we are expecting the same to be launched in India. As for the pricing, the Redmi 9 Chinese variant price starts at CNY 799 (roughly Rs 8,500) for its 4GB RAM + 64GB storage option. The company also launched two more variants of the Redmi 9 in China. These two models include 4GB and 6GB RAM coupled with 128GB onboard storage.

Talking about the features, we get a 6.53-inch LCD panel with a 19.6:9 aspect ratio, and HD+ resolution. It will run on MediaTek Helio G80 SoC along with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
The company had launched three variants of the Xiaomi Redmi 9 in China, and it is likely that all three variants will make it to India as well. These models come with different storage and RAM options include 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, 4GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. Other features include a quad-rear-camera setup, a 5,020mAh battery with 18W fast charging technology.
