The prospect of a Redmi 9 has not been heard of since late 2019, whereupon it was slated for a MediaTek processor rather than the Snapdragon one found in its predecessor. Now, a Twitter leaker purports to know which one. In addition, the 9 is now alleged to have quad cameras in a familiar circular housing.

What with the K30 series and all the hype around its Pro variants' launch, a successor for the Redmi 8 seems to have gone by the wayside. A reliable Twitter leaker claims to have heard it is in development nonetheless, and now has concrete SoC and rear camera specs to show for itself.

Sudhanshu Ambhore asserts he has learned from a source that this phone is destined to rock the MediaTek Helio G80 processor. In addition, it will have quad rear cameras in a module quite like that of the higher-end K30. They will be made up of 13+8+5+2MP lenses, which may give the 9 wide-angle, macro and depth-sensing modes.

Therefore, despite this potentially considerable step up compared to the pre-exising 8, it seems this phone may still remain in the budget category in 2020. Finally, the Redmi 9 is now rumored to have at least 2 color options: the shade of purple seen in an image posted by Ambhore, along with an on-trend green option.

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.
