Redmi Note 9 is coming to India on July 20, according to a report. The phone has already been released in several countries by the Xiaomi-owned tech brand. Indian consumers may soon get their hands on the device as the launch is expected to be in the third week of this month. Launched in April, the Redmi Note 9 features a quad rear camera setup and a powerful 5,020mAh battery. Back in May, the phone's Indian variant was reportedly spotted on Wi-Fi Alliance's website, leading to speculation that an India launch may be imminent.
When the Redmi Note 9 was launched in April, India was excluded from the list of global markets it was released in. At the time, the phone's 3GB RAM + 64GB storage option was priced at $199 (roughly Rs. 14,900) while its 4GB RAM + 128GB model carried a tag of $249 (roughly Rs. 18,650).
Powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 octa-core processor, the phone features a 6.53-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,340 pixels) IPS display. It comes with a quad rear camera setup, which houses a 48-megapixel Samsung GM1 primary sensor along with an additional 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and two 2-megapixel lens.
