Redmi India on Thursday teased the launch of a new Redmi Note 9 model in India. The company in March launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max in India. However, Redmi in April unveiled three variants of the Redmi Note 9 series for its global markets with the variants including a standard Redmi Note 9, Note 9S and Note 9 Pro. While the Redmi Note 9S and Note 9 Pro are similar to the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Note Pro Max, the standard Note 9 never made its debut in India.
Redmi Note 9 Powered by MediaTek Helio G85 Platform
The standard Redmi Note 9 features a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The device is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 platform and sports a quad camera system in the rear.
The 48MP primary shooter is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide shooter and 2MP macro camera while an 2MP depth sensor completes the quad camera system. Further, the Redmi Note 9 also packs in a 13MP front camera in the punch-hole design and a 5020 mAh battery.
“Fasten your seatbelts and get set for an all new BEAST from the #Redmi family. Undisputed speed, undisputed performance- the #UndisputedChampion is coming soon [sic],” Redmi said in a tweet on Thursday.
