Redmi 9 has been spotted on China's regulatory body TENAA's website with more RAM and storage than the two Redmi 9 variants recently unveiled. The TENAA listing comes with model number M2004J19G that belongs to the Redmi 9 and it shows the phone with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. This is more than the already unveiled 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB variants. This suggests that the phone may launch in China with an additional RAM and storage configuration.
The Redmi 9 TENAA listing indicates that the phone may get an additional 6GB + 128GB variant, along with the 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB variants. The phone is yet to launch in China and this listing suggests that when it does, it will come in three configurations unlike the Redmi 9 unveiled in Spain last week. Additionally, the phone has been listed with six colour options namely, Black, Blue, Green, Pink, Red, and White. To recall, the Redmi 9 originally launched with just three colour options – Carbon Gray, Sunset Purple, and Ocean Green. As this listing shows just a new RAM and storage configuration of the Redmi 9, other specifications remain the same. The TENAA listing was spotted by GizmoChina.
Whether this variant will make its way to India or not, remains to be seen.
