Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi recently unveiled its Redmi Note 9 series in China. The lineup has three devices – Redmi Note 9 4G, Redmi Note 9 5G, and Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. Amongst these, we have already spotted the Redmi Note 9 5G device’s potential rebranded variant for the global market – the Redmi Note 9T 5G, on the NBTC certification website earlier today. Now, the remaining two devices have also come in the picture, as the rebranded variants, the Redmi 9 Power (rebranded Redmi Note 9 4G for the Indian market) and the Xiaomi Mi 10i (rebranded Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G for the Indian market) have been spotted on the Google Play Console listing. Take a look.

As seen in the Google Play Console listing images of the Mi 10i and Redmi 9 Power, the specifications of both devices fall in line with their respective Chinese counterparts. Plus, we have already spotted both Mi 10i and Redmi 9 Power on the Google Supported Devices list, which pretty much tells us the same story – a rebrand, as the model numbers of the devices are the same, save for the letters ‘C’ and ‘I’.
