Redmi 9 Power India launch has been set for December 17, Xiaomi on Thursday announced through a tweet posted by the Redmi India account. The company called the smartphone a “power packed” model in the portfolio. The new Redmi-series phone was earlier rumoured to debut in the country on December 15. Redmi 9 Power is speculated to be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 4G that was recently introduced in China. However, the smartphone may feature some changes to meet the preferences of Indian consumers.
Separately, Amazon has created a microsite to highlight that Redmi 9 Power will be available through the online marketplace. Xiaomi also recently teased the phone through a dedicated microsite on Mi.com. That development revealed a 48-megapixel primary camera sensor and suggested fast charging support on the upcoming Redmi model.
The microsite on Mi.com has now been updated with additional details. It shows that Redmi 9 Power will come with Hi-Res Audio and feature four colour options.
As per earlier reports, Redmi 9 Power will be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 9 4G that was launched in China last month, alongside Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G. The phone is tipped to have two storage variants — 64GB and 128GB. It is also expected to have 4GB RAM as standard.
Redmi 9 Power is likely to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC and include a 6.53-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,340 pixels) display, if we consider it as a rebranding of Redmi Note 9 4G. The phone could also pack a 6,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.
