Xiaomi Redmi 9 Power introduced with a large battery, improved cameras and a Snapdragon 662 processor
Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Redmi 9 Power, its Indian re-brand of the Redmi Note 9 4G that it released in China in November. The device has received a price rise from its announcement last month, though. While Xiaomi charges CNY 999 (~US$153) for the entry-level edition in China, the Redmi 9 Power starts at INR 13,999 (~US$190) in India.
There are no hardware differences between the Redmi Note 9 4G and the Redmi 9 Power, though. Xiaomi equips both a 6.53-inch and FHD+ IPS display, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC, 4 GB of RAM and a 48 MP primary camera. There is also a 6,000 mAh battery and up to 128 GB of storage. Currently, Xiaomi is not selling any 8 GB of RAM SKUs in India, as it does in China with the Redmi Note 9 4G.
Nonetheless, the Redmi 9 Power represents an improvement on the Redmi 9 that Xiaomi released in India earlier this year. Not only does the former have a larger battery, but it has better cameras and a more powerful chipset.
The Redmi 9 Power will be available to order in India from December 22. Xiaomi will sell the device in Blazing Blue, Electric Green, Fiery Red and Mighty Black. Prices will start on launch day at INR 10,999 (~US$150) for the 64 GB model and INR 11,999 (~US$163) for the 128 GB SKU.
