Yesterday, Xiaomi’s Redmi has already launched a few smartphones under its 9 Series such as Redmi Note 9 Pro MaxRedmi Note 9 ProRedmi Note 9,  and the Redmi 9 Prime. Just yesterday, the company teased the launch of a new Redmi 9 series smartphone and today the company has confirmed that it will launch Redmi 9 in the country on 27th August and it will be Amazon Exclusive. Going by the tweet and promotional event, it looks like Redmi India will launch a slightly modified version of Redmi 9C in the country as Redmi 9.

Redmi 9 Indian Variant might be a Dual-Camera Variant of Redmi 9C

To those unaware, Redmi 9C was launched globally back in June along with the Redmi 9A. Redmi 9C packs a 6.53-inch HD+ Dot-notch display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. Redmi 9 sports an octa-core MediaTek Helio G35 processor, clocked at 2.3GHz, coupled with an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU, it’s the same processor that we have already seen on Realme C11Realme C12 and Realme C15. Redmi 9C is available in 2GB RAM 32GB ROM and 3GB RAM 64GB ROM configuration but we can expect Redmi India to bump up the memory as it is emphasizing on more RAM with hashtag #MoreRAMMoreFun.

Redmi 9C packs a triple-rear camera setup with 13MP primary shooter along with 2MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor inclosed in a squircle camera island, but going by the promotional banner it looks like Redmi India might ditch macro sensor as Redmi India has confirmed that Redmi 9 will come with AI Dual Camera setup similar to its predecessor. Redmi 9C has a polycarbonate back and also features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. On the battery front, Redmi 9C packs a 5000mAh battery along with 10W charging support and Micro-US port but we can expect Redmi India to swap it for a USB Type-C port since even cheaper Redmi 8A had a Type-C charging port.

Redmi 9C comes in Sunrise Orange, Twilight Blue, and Midnight Gray colors, and Redmi India has also teased these three colors in the tweet. What are your thoughts on Redmi 9C with a couple of changes being launched as Redmi 9 in the country?
