While Redmi 8 has been in the market for about 9 months now, Xiaomi is planning to bring its successor very soon. Although there are no announcements made by the company itself, Redmi 9 has been a hot topic in the market in recent months. The FCC listing and the mention of the phone in Xiaomi’s official site as the launch nears has created a buzz among the audience. So here we present to you everything we know about Redmi 9.
Redmi 9 Leaked Specs Overview:
The FCC listing confirmed that the device will launch with MIUI 11 on board, based on Android 10. Likewise, the device possesses a huge battery of 5000mAh. Unfortunately, there is no information about the charger in the listing but it is widely suspected to include a 10W charger. If this is true, it will be quite disheartening as previously launched Redmi 8 already had an 18W fast charging. The FCC documents have also uncovered that the phone is a 4G LTE and supports dual-band Wi-Fi.
The display of the phone is not exactly mentioned in the FCC listing. However, it is disclosed that the phone measures 174mm. With this, we can presume the device to flaunt a 6.6 inches display. The other details of the display haven’t been verified yet. Despite that, we won’t be surprised if we get to see the IPS LCD screen with a 720 x 1600 resolution and 20:9 aspect ratio.
According to 91mobiles.com, upcoming Redmi 9 will be powered by Mediatek Helio G70 (12 nm), Octa-core (2×2.0 GHz Cortex-A75 & 6×1.7 GHz Cortex-A55) and have Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU. It will at least have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Recently Realme launched Narzo 10A with the same processor at INR 8,499 (~NPR 13,600) for the base variant and it came up with an Antutu score of 192,973, which is higher compared to Redmi Note 8. So it is definitely going to be more powerful compared to its predecessor, Redmi 8.
According to the rumors, the device will probably rock a quad-camera setup at the back with a primary sensor of 13 MP, f/1.8(wide, PDAF), a secondary ultrawide sensor of 8 MP, f/2.2 and the other secondary sensor of 5 MP, f/2.4 macro and 2 MP,f/2.4 for depth sensing. Speaking of the alignment of the camera, we might see three cameras aligned vertically and the depth-sensing lens on the other side accompanying flash. There is no information about the selfie camera yet.
