Redmi Note 9 series may get new models on November 11 celebrated as Singles' Day in China, Xiaomi Vice President and General Manager of the Redmi brand Lu Weibing suggested through a teaser posted on Weibo on Monday. The Redmi Note 9 5G and Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G are expected to be among the new models in the Redmi Note 9 series. Both phones purportedly surfaced on TENAA last week. The rumour mill claimed that Xiaomi could launch as many as three new models in the Redmi Note 9 series, with one of which may feature a 108-megapixel primary camera sensor.
The teaser posted by Weibing doesn't provide any clear details about the new models arriving in the Redmi Note 9 series. However, it does mention that the official announcement could take place on Singles' Day on November 11.
If we look at past reports, the Redmi Note 9 series is tipped to be getting three new models, with one featuring Samsung's ISOCELL HM2 sensor that has 108-megapixel resolution. The new models are likely to be different from the existing ones in the series that so far has the standard Redmi Note 9, along with the Redmi Note 9 Pro and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. The changes may include a 120Hz display along with AdaptiveSync support, at least in the top-end model.
