Xiaomi has started teasing a new Redmi smartphone launch on its social media accounts. It is expected to be the Redmi 9, which was launched in China earlier this month. The teaser shows a phone a bold text that says 'Prime' and reflects it as 'Nine', and is said to launch at 12 noon on August 4 in India.

The 'Prime' can either mean a new variant of the Redmi 9 or could also say that the phone is a part of Amazon's Prime Day launches which kicks off on August 6. We've even spotted the teasers on Amazon under Prime Day launches, which confirms that it will be available on Amazon. Some speculations also suggest that 'Prime' could be the Redmi 9C variant, a toned-down version of the Redmi 9.

As mentioned, the Redmi 9 was launched earlier this month in China alongside Redmi 9A and 9C. The Redmi 9 series succeeds the Redmi 8 series by Xiaomi and aims to offer value for money smartphones in the budget segment. 

Let's take a look at the specifications, features and pricing of the Redmi 9.

Redmi 9 Specifications and price

The Redmi 9 features a 6.53-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution display with a waterdrop notch cutout for the selfie camera. The screen is topped with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 for added protection. The phone is 9.1mm thick and weighs at 198 grams.

It is powered by MediaTek Helio G80 chipset with an octa-core CPU and Mali-G52 GPU and runs on MIUI 12 which is based on Android 10. This is paired with up to 4GB RAM and up to 64GB storage options to choose from. There's also an option to increase the phone's storage further by using microSD cards of up to 512GB.

The Redmi 9 features a quad-camera setup that consists of a primary 13MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera with 118-degree field-of-view, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera housed within the waterdrop notch cutout.

The phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back and comes with a 5,020mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging out-of-the-box.

Xiaomi has priced the Redmi 9 in China at CNY 799 (roughly Rs 8,500) for its 4GB RAM + 64GB storage option. The company also launched two more variants of the Redmi 9 in China. These two models include 4GB and 6GB RAM, coupled with 128GB onboard storage. The phone comes in three colours-- Grey, Green and Purple.
