Xiaomi is on a launch spree, the brand has launched Redmi Note 9, Redmi 9 Prime, and Redmi 9 within the last 40 days. Yesterday, a report emerged on the web claiming that the Redmi 9A will be launching soon as Redmi 9i in India which we found a bit surprising. Now, Redmi India has officially confirmed that it will launch Redmi 9A in the country on 2nd September, which was launched globally back in June. Redmi A series of smartphones are entry-level devices and are aimed towards first-time smartphone buyers.
