Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has launched several smartphones of its Redmi 9 series in India, including the likes of devices like the Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, and the Redmi 9 Prime. As it turns out, the brand is now gearing up for the launch of another device in the Redmi 9 series, as it has started teasing it on its official social media handles. Though Redmi has not explicitly mentioned as to which device it has in store, we can expect that the brand might come up with the Redmi 9A smartphone this time around. If the Redmi 9A moniker does not ring a bell, the same device has already been launched globally and its Indian variant has already been spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance certification website, which points to an imminent launch.
Redmi 9A might be launching soon in India
Redmi India, via a new tweet, has started hinting that a new Redmi 9 series smartphone is making its way to India. The tweet mentions the launch dates of its existing Redmi 9 series devices and has not given us anything on the launch date of the upcoming one, not even the name (yet). If this is any relief, the tweet mentions that the device will launch in 2020. Below is the tweet for your reference:

As mentioned earlier, there is no official confirmation as to whether or not the teased device will indeed be the Redmi 9A. After all, the Redmi 9 came to the country with a rebadged title (Redmi 9 Prime), so who’s to stop the brand from rebranding this one too? For all its worth, we are going to see another Redmi 9 series smartphone in the coming days and we can expect it to be the budget-friendly Redmi 9A, no matter what name it comes to India with. In case you are curious to learn more about the Redmi 9A, you can head to our previous coverage for the same.
