Xiaomi's Redmi A series typically offers some of the best-selling smartphones in the world every year, and the company is set to launch the next device in the lineup. The Redmi 9A will succeed the Redmi 8A, and details of the phone have now been revealed.

Xiaomi launched the Redmi 9 days ago, leaving the Redmi 9A as the last device to be released in the Redmi 9-series. The completely typically releases the cheaper A phone alongside the main phone⁠—Redmi 7 and Redmi 7A, Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A⁠—but that wasn't the case this time out. Thankfully, though, the Redmi 9A looks to be on the way, and a new leak has now given some information on the phone. 

The upcoming Redmi 9A recently made an appearance on the US FCC and Chinese 3C websites for certification, with the model number "M2006C3LC". The phone is listed with a 10 W "MDY-09-EK" charger. That's about par in this segment. The Redmi 8A and the new Redmi 9 also shipped with a 10 W charger, but offered 18 W fast-charging support. We expect that to be the case with the Redmi 9A. 

The Redmi 9A is touted to be powered by a MediaTek Helio G25. The Redmi 8 and Redmi 8A featured the same Snapdragon 439, but that uniformity will apparently not continue this time out, as the Helio G25 rumored for the Redmi 9A should be quite a bit weaker than the Helio G80 on the Redmi 9.

Other expected features include a HD+ display, up to 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, a main 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP selfie camera, and a 5000 mAh battery. The Redmi 9A is expected to launch with a price tag of right about US$100.
