Xiaomi launched a number of Redmi Note 9 phones earlier this year, but the company hasn’t yet introduced its lineup in the country, and it looks like this is finally happening.
According to the prolific Chinese Leakster Digital Chat Station, the pipeline has two phones, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G Standard Edition and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 5G High Edition. The former is small in size and has modest specs, but the latter can bring powerful cameras, chipsets and fast charging.
The Vanilla Redmi Note 9 5G features a 1080p resolution 6.53 inch LCD with a punch hole in the upper left corner of the 13MP camera. Around the back is a triple camera with a 48MP primary sensor.
The spec sheet also lists a 5,000 mAh battery with a 22.5 W fast charge, which weighs 200 grams.
More powerful phones may have a 6.67 inch panel and 1080p resolution. It’s also an LCD like the Vanilla brothers, but with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. The front camera will be 16MP, but the main thing is where it gets interesting-a 108MP shooter with Samsung’s HM2 sensor.
The Pro (or other one it’s called) variant chipset is said to be the Snapdragon 750G, which allows a 33W fast charge with a 4,820mAh battery. This phone is a little taller and heavier-214 grams.
Whether any of the original Redmi Note 9 phones with LTE connectivity will reach China is still a mystery, but the odds seem low.
