Redmi has confirmed that it will finally be launching a new device in India later today. The company had previously confirmed through a teaser that India is set to get its third Redmi Note 9 model on July 20.
The Redmi Note 9 is expected to come to India with an aggressive price. The India variant of the phone could retail for less than $199 (approx Rs. 15,000) for the entry 3GB + 64GB storage variant, and $249 (approx Rs. 19,000) for the 4GB + 128GB storage model.
The Redmi Note 9 could bring a 6.53-inch IPS panel with FHD+ resolution and a punch-hole housing a 13-megapixel camera. Earlier, a report by MySmartPrice has revealed that the Redmi Note 9 will be launched in the country in the third week of July.
To recall, the Redmi Note 9 was launched in Europe earlier at the end of April. The phone gets a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ resolution that’s protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 5. Under the hood, the Redmi Note 9 uses a MediaTek Helio G85 chip.
At the back, there’s a quad-camera system with the same squarish design as the Pro models, but with the black patch extended further down to conceal a capacitive fingerprint sensor. The quad cameras contain a 48-megapixel main camera using a Samsung GM1 sensor.
Keeping the lights on is a 5020mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. It also gets a 22.5W fast charger in the box for topping the battery quickly. Note 9 also gets a USB-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC for select markets, and an IR blaster.
