Xiaomi has confirmed that the Redmi Note 9 5G series will launch on November 26, 2020. Prior to this, however, a new device from this OEM thought to be the new line's base model has appeared on Geekbench. It seems to have the phone's rumored Dimensity 800U chipset, and competes effectively with what will probably be a prime rival found on the same database.

New Redmi phones are officially set to launch soon. However, it seems one member of this  group has broken cover ahead of this event. A new Xiaomi device called the M2007J22C has appeared on Geekbench with specs previously predicted for the Note 9 5G.

They include a processor called the ARM MT6853T, believed to be the Dimensity 800U processor. This is due to findings that the GPU in question here is the Mali-G57 - although it must be noted that the same is also present in the Dimensity 720 processor.

Should it be the 800U, however, it would put the new Redmi Note on par with the Realme X7 (or 7 5G for the European market). However, the newer phone is rumored to be the cheaper of the two on its launch.

This new leak may show that the Redmi Note 9 5G has at least 8GB of RAM and, slightly disappointingly, runs Android 10. Therefore, it might prove a compelling new prospect for Chinese consumers when it launches in that market. It is also now touted to do so as the Note 9T in other markets once this event is complete.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
