Redmi 9 Power, Mi 10i launching in India soon
Xiaomi India will be adding these two handsets to an already exhaustive collection of affordable smartphones across various price ranges. The Redmi 9 Power will join the Redmi 9 series whereas the Mi 10i will expand the Mi 10 series.
The Redmi 9 Power is simply a renamed Redmi Note 9 4G from China and hence, will offer the same specifications as the latter. You can expect a Snapdragon 662 chip at its heart paired with a massive 6000mAh battery. The phone also gets a completely new design theme that’s unseen on a Redmi device.
The Mi 10i, on the other hand, will sit in Xiaomi’s premium smartphone lineup and will be its third 5G device for India. Essentially a Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G underneath, the Mi 10i will offer some of the flagship features at a lower price. Highlight features on the Mi 10i include a Snapdragon 750G chip, a 108-megapixel main camera, and a 120Hz 6.67-inch IPS LCD display.
The Mi 10i could be priced competitively to take on the recently launched Motorola Moto G 5G, which also features the Snapdragon 750G chip. The Redmi 9 Power could be priced on lines of the Redmi 9 Prime as well as the Motorola Moto G9.
