Last month, the upcoming Redmi 9 smartphone bagged the Bluetooth SIG certification approval and now a fresh leak shared by Indian tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore has revealed the complete specifications and pricing of the Redmi 9 series.
The new leak reports that the lineup includes four devices such as Redmi 9, Redmi 9C with NFC, Redmi 9C without NFC, and Redmi 9A.
Redmi 9, 9A, 9C Specifications (Rumored)
The Redmi 9 models are built around 6.53-inch IPS LCD panels. Except for the Redmi 9 smartphone that supports full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, its other variants such as Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C support HD+ resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels.
The Redmi 9A is the weakest phone in the Redmi 9 series as it is driven by Helio A25 SoC. It has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.
The Redmi 9C is fueled by Helio G35 and 3 GB of RAM. It has 64 GB of storage. The Redmi 9 has Helio G70 onboard. It has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. All models have dual nano-SIM slot and support for a microSD card slot.
The Redmi 9A has a 13-megapixel rear camera. The Redmi 9C NFC edition has a 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual camera setup on its rear whereas the non-NFC version has a 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel + 2-megapixel triple camera setup. The Redmi 9 has a 13-megapixel + 8-megapixel + 5-megapixel + 2-megapixel quad camera setup. All Redmi 9 phones have 5-megapixel front-facing cameras.
The Redmi 9 models are packed with 5,000mAh batteries. The leak does not mention whether there is support for fast charging. Because the Redmi 8 series came with 18W fast charging, it is likely the Redmi 9 phones will also offer users with rapid charging. The other common features that are available on all three models include fingerprint reader, accelerometer, gyroscope, light sensor, proximity sensor, USB-C, 3.5mm audio jack and infrared blaster. The Redmi 9A does not feature NFC and it is unclear whether Redmi 9 supports it.
Redmi 9, 9A and 9C Price (Rumored)
The leak mentions the pricing range of the Redmi 9A, Redmi 9C, and Redmi 9 smartphones. In Europe, the Redmi 9A is expected to be priced between 100 euros and 120 euros. The Redmi 9C NFC and non-NFC versions are expected to cost between 130 euros and 150 euros.
