Four models of the Redmi 9 have now been certified through the Wi-Fi Alliance, the M2004J19I, M2004J19IPI, M2004J19G, and the M2004J19C. The Wi-Fi listings of these models of the Redmi 9 reveal that the phone will run on Android 10 operating system with MIUI 11+ customization, and that it will have dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi ac.


The original story follows…

A few days ago, we had spotted the Redmi 9 smartphone on Xiaomi India’s RF exposure page, confirming that such a device exists and that it will be launching in the Indian market. The listing of the smartphone on Xiaomi India’s RF exposure page had revealed that the model number of the device is M2004J19I (at least for the Indian market). Today, we have spotted the Redmi 9 with the same model number (M2004J19I) on the Bluetooth SIG platform. Moreover, we have spotted a different variant of the Redmi 9 on the SIRIM certification platform.

Usually, the certification from Bluetooth SIG has the model number of the smartphone rather than the name of the device. But the listing of the Redmi 9 on the certification platform clearly mentions the name of the smartphone. Furthermore, it reveals that the Redmi 9 will have 5 model numbers (probably for 5 different variants, which could be for various memory configurations or regions), M2004J19AG, M2004J19PI, M2004J19C, M2004J19I, and M2004J19G. The listing of the smartphone also reveals that it has Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and MIUI 11+ (It could probably be MIUI 12) software customization.

Now that the Indian version of Redmi 9 (which is the one with M2004J19I model number) has been spotted on the Bluetooth SIG certification platform, its launch seems to be a step closer.
