Leaked Redmi 9 image showcases the phone's quad-camera setup; will likely be released on June 25th
More details have emerged about Redmi's upcoming budget Redmi 9 smartphone. The device will feature a quad-camera setup at the rear, a 5,000mAh battery which can be charged at 18W, a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC, and up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It will reportedly make its debut on June 25th and cost around the $150 mark.
Rumors about the Redmi 9 have been around for quite some time now. The phone first appeared in the Bluetooth SIG database, followed by a leak that shed some light on its innards. We now have our first look at what could be the Redmi 9.
A Weibo post highlights the phone's 6.53-inch screen and quad-camera setup at the back that consists of a 13MP primary sensor assisted by 8MP, 5MP, and 2MP lenses. It also mentions that the phone will pack a 5,000mAh battery. The second tidbit of information comes via Twitter user @Boby25846908. His Tweet doesn't say anything about the phone's camera setup but confirms that the 5,000mAh battery will support charging at up to 18W.
Boby25846908 also states that the Redmi 9 will come with a MediaTek Helio G80. An earlier leak pegged the phone to feature an Helio G70. Lastly, the Redmi 9 will retail at ~$150 in Vietnam, but the price is expected to be lower in India and China. A cost of Rs 10,000($130) would be ideal for the highly cost-sensitive Indian market. The Redmi 9 is expected to be unveiled on June 25th, so it shouldn't be long before we know more about it.
