Redmi 9A or Redmi 9C may be headed to India as Redmi 9. Xiaomi India boss Manu Kumar Jain on Wednesday teased a new product carrying 9 in its moniker. While Jain didn't reveal the actual product, the upcoming phone could be Xiaomi Redmi 9A or Redmi 9C under the Redmi 9 branding, given the Chinese smartphone maker has already launched Redmi 9 as Redmi 9 Prime in India. To recall, Redmi 9A and Redmi 9C were originally launched in Malaysia back in June.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Xiaomi's Jain teased the arrival of Redmi 9 in the country. Jain recapped the various devices with 9 in moniker that Xiaomi has launched in the country this year and asked his followers what could be next - strongly hinting at Redmi 9. As Xiaomi has already released the Redmi 9 as Redmi 9 Prime in the country. It is very likely that we are going to see Redmi 9A or Redmi 9C as Redmi 9 in the country.
