After getting leaked several times in the last week. Today, Redmi finally launched Redmi 9 in Spain, it is the successor of the Redmi 8A Dual that launched last year. Though the company did not launch the Redmi 9A & 9C, which leads us to think that they might these two in other markets. Anyway, the key features of the Redmi 9 are MediaTek Helio G80, Quad rear cameras & a 5020mAh battery.
Redmi 9: Design & Specifications.
well, like all the majority of the budget phones, this one too has a waterdrop notch at the front, minimal bezels all around & a good amount of chin at the bottom. Volume rockers on the left & Power button the right, Type-C port & speaker grill & 3.5mm jack at the bottom.
As for the rear, this is where it gets interesting in terms of design since it is the combination of Poco X2 & Note 8 Pro especially the circular ring around the quad-camera module which makes it unique when you look at the rear design of the other budget. Moreover, the rear has a textured finish for better grip.
Now onto to the specifications, the device features a 6.53 inch IPS LCD with FullHD resolution, pretty good for a budget device, protected by Gorilla Glass 3 & has 400 nits brightness. It is powered by Mediatek Helio G80 clocked at 2.0GHz & built on a 12mm process. There’s Mali G-52 mc2 GPU for gaming, the handset comes in two RAM & Storage variants – 3GB RAM & 32GB storage, 4GB RAM & 64GB. Runs on MIUI 11 based on Android 10 & comes in three colour options – Carbon Grey, Sunset Purple & Ocean Green.
Redmi 9 features a Quad rear camera setup on the back, which includes a primary 13MP lens with f/2.2 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens with 118-degree FOV, a 5MP macro & a 2MP depth sensor for portraits. On the front, there’s an 8MP camera for selfies.
There’s a 5,020 battery with support for 18W fast charger though you only get a 10W charger in the box, which is disappointing.
Price & Availability.
The base 3GB/32GB variant is priced at 149 Euro ($169) & approx Rs. 13,000 while the top 4GB/64GB variant is priced at 179 Euro ($203) & approx Rs. 15,000. The Redmi 9 is already available to buy on Redmi’s Spanish website.
Well, Indian pricing would be less compared to Europe & though there’s no official word on the Indian launch, we expect it to launch soon in the country!
