Redmi Note 9 launched in India with MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, 5,000mAh battery, and more
Rumors of the Redmi Note 9 heading to Indian shores have been around for quite some time now. Xiaomi had already released the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max in the country earlier this year. As is the case with several Xiaomi products, the nomenclature varies from region to region, as the latter was released internationally under a different monicker. Xiaomi has now officially unveiled the Redmi Note 9 in India.
The Indian version of the Redmi Note 9 is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC. Memory options start at 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It can be bumped up to 6GB of RAM and 126GB of memory, as foretold by an earlier leak. The phone comes with a 6.4-inch IPS FHD+ LCD panel protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. A waterdrop notch nestled at the top houses the Redmi Note 9's 13MP selfie camera.
Moving on to the rear camera array, the Redmi Note 9 comes with a 48MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor at the helm. It is assisted by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. A 5,000mAh battery powers the Redmi Note 9. It supports fast charging at 22W.
The base variant of the Redmi Note 9 (4/64GB RAM/storage) will cost INR 11,999 (US$160). Bumping up the storage to 128GB will set you back by INR 13,499 (US$180). The maxed-out version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of memory will retail at INR 14,999 (US$200). The phone will be up for grabs starting 24 July on Amazon and Xiaomi's official website.
