India was the debut country for Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max earlier this year. But it will be one of the last regions to get Redmi 9 as Xiaomi India has finally announced its launch date to be August 4. The handset will be exclusive to Amazon and will be available during the annual Prime Day sale (August 6-7).
Xiaomi or rather Redmi India is teasing the Redmi 9 with “Prime” word for every feature. Also, the company is using #BackToPrime, which suggests the handset to retail as Redmi 9 Prime in the country.
For those unaware, the last Xiaomi phone with such branding was Redmi 4 Prime from 2016 but it did not launch in India. Anyway, this is just a speculation and the “Prime” word used in the teaser could mostly mean “Amazon Prime Day” sale and nothing else.
Having said that, the company recently launched Redmi Note 9 in India starting at ₹11,999. Therefore, we expect the upcoming Redmi 9 to retail at a lower price than that. For context, the 4GB + 64GB variant costs CNY 799 ($114) in China and RM 599 ($141) in Malaysia.
The highlights of the handset include MediaTek Helio G80, quad-camera setup, FHD+ display, and 5,020 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.
