Earlier Xiaomi has launched an affordable Redmi 9A this year with a large display, larger battery capacity, and an adequate amount of RAM – up to 3 GB RAM and 32GB of storage. Later, the Chinese manufacturer launched the device in India under a new name aka Redmi 9i – and this time it offers 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
Now, Xiaomi is again focused on upgrading the device reportedly – the entry-level Redmi 9A is now getting announced with 6GB RAM and 128 GB storage in China, and the phone costs the equivalent of $145.
The Redmi 9A has only one camera on the back – 13 MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and 1080p video recording. There is a single selfie shooter as well, sitting behind a waterdrop notch – and it has a modest 5 MP sensor as well.
The chipset of the phone is Helio G25, but the spec that is really intriguing is the 5,000 mAh battery, charged at 10W through the micro USB port. Xiaomi is launching the Redmi 9A tomorrow in China for 999 Yuan.
The big question is why, since the same amount of money in China gets you a Redmi 10X 4G with a hefty chipset, better display, better camera, and proper fast charging for a tad bigger battery. It seems Xiaomi will also introduce this device in other markets just like it did before with a different name.
