INTRO: It has been quite six months since Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 9 lineup in India. The company has since added many new devices to its number series. But, it’s only now that Xiaomi is getting to introduce the Redmi Note 9 lineup in China. The rumors of Redmi Note 9 5G and Note 9 Pro 5G are floating around for a short time now. However, we’ve gotten a primary check out both of the Note 9 devices today, because of their TENAA listing surfacing online.
Redmi Note 9 5G
Carrying the model number M2007J22C, the TENAA listing for the rumored Redmi Note 9 5G reveals not only the planning but also a number of the main specifications of the upcoming smartphone. Xiaomi is now moving to circular camera setups (after square ones) for Redmi phones, as we’ve already seen with the Redmi K30 Ultra.
Redmi Note 9 5G will launch with a 6.53-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD screen with a 2400 x 1080-pixel resolution. You have a punch-hole cutout at the highest left. The device are going to be powered by the new MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset, which brings 5G connectivity to the table. It will be paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage, which is expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card, as per the listing.
The leaks further suggest that Redmi Note 9 5G will include a 5,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast-charging support. This is almost like the quality Note 9 launched in India a couple of months ago.
The circular triple camera cutout is predicted to be led by a 48MP primary camera. It will be paired with an ultra-wide and a macro camera. You will presumably have a 13MP selfie sensor onboard. This brings me to the conclusion that the Redmi Note 9 5G (China variant) will arrive as a rebranded Redmi Note 9 (Indian variant) with a design and chipset upgrade.
Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G
The images within the TENAA listing are enough to verify that Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G for China are going to be a rebranded Mi 10T Lite, which made its debut in Europe earlier last month. The company will, however, make minor changes here and there to make the smartphone more attractive for its home country. The device carries the model number M2007J17C.
Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G are going to be Xiaomi’s first budget-centric Redmi smartphone with a 108MP primary camera (as against a 64MP camera on the Mi 10T Lite). This has been rumored for a long while and we can expect it to become a reality very soon. The 108MP camera are going to be paired with an 8MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP depth, and 2MP macro camera. You will also find a 16MP selfie sensor baked into the centered punch-hole cutout on the front.
Under the hood, the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G are going to be powered by the Snapdragon 750G chipset. It will be including up to 12GB RAM and up to 256GB storage, as per the listing. There is expected to be a 4,720mAh battery with 33W fast-charging onboard.
Xiaomi is predicted to require the wraps off three Redmi Note 9 series smartphones in China. There is currently no official information but we will see these smartphones being launched later this month (or a minimum of , before the top of this year).
