The Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi has been teasing its upcoming smartphone in India. After releasing Redmi Note 9 Pro Max and Redmi Note 9 Pro in India in March the company is now all set to bring Redmi Note 9 in the country on July 20. The handset has already been launched in the European market and will be joining its siblings here. The device comes with a hole punch design display, quad-cameras at the back and a 5,020mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support. Read on to know more about Redmi Note 9 price and other launch details.
Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi took to Twitter to announce the arrival of Redmi Note 9 in India. The vanilla variant of the Redmi Note 9 series is going to launch in the country on July 20 at 12 noon. Although its a teaser, the company has not announced whether a launch event will be held or not. We expect that this time Xiaomi might keep it simple with no launch event due to the anti-China sentiments in the country. We will notify you if the company decides to go with an online launch and other details.
The pricing of the Redmi Note 9 is also not clear but when launched in China in April this year two variants of the smartphones were introduced. The 3GB RAM with 64GB storage option comes at $199 that translates to Rs 15,100 whereas the 4GB RAM with 128GB storage has been priced at $249 that translates to Rs 18,900. It comes in three colour options Forest Green, Polar White and Midnight Grey.
