Redmi brought over the Redmi 9C to India as the Redmi 9 earlier today. Before that, we saw the Redmi 9 Prime debut – that one was based on the global Redmi 9. This leaves the Redmi 9A as the only Redmi 9 variant yet to grace India and according to a new tip from Ishan Agarwal, we’ll see it as the Redmi 9i.
Yes, that’s Xiaomi’s increasingly convoluted naming scheme in play but it makes sense given the previous rebadged Redmi 9 models. There’s still no exact word on the launch date and pricing of the device but according to the Redmi 9i might come with a slightly higher price than the Redmi 9A’s RM 359 (INR 6,360).
The Redmi 9A brings a 6.53 HD+ display, a 5,000 mAh battery and a single 13MP rear camera. It’s powered by the Helio G25 chipset with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage.
