Xiaomi Redmi 9i Full Specs, review and price


Where To Buy

Xiaomi offshoot Redmi launched the Redmi 9 as Redmi 9 Prime in India last month, followed by the Redmi 9 which is similar to the international Redmi 9C. Today the Chinese phone maker launched the Redmi 9iin India, which is a rebranded Redmi 9Alaunched earlier this month in the country.

The only difference between the Redmi 9A and 9i is that the latter comes with more RAM and storage, which makes us question the need for a name change. Redmi could have just announced it as a Redmi 9A with more memory.

Anyway, the Redmi 9i is powered by the Helio G25 SoC and runs Android 10 with MIUI 12 on top. It’s built around a 6.53″ HD+ display that has a notch up top for the 5MP selfie camera.

The back of the phone flaunts an Aura 360 Design and houses the 13MP primary camera joined by an LED flash. Under the hood, the Redmi 9i packs a 5,000 mAh battery that charges through a microUSB port at up to 10W.
