Also, Xiaomi’s India website has also updated event page for the Redmi 9 with a countdown timer to the launch event time. But to recall, Xiaomi originally launched a Redmi 9 phone in Spain back in June and that has already been launched in India as the Redmi 9 Prime. So, as of now there is not much information available for the upcoming Redmi 9 for India. But if reports are to be believed, then this model could be a slightly tweaked version of the Redmi 9C that was originally launched in Malaysia back in June.

Redmi 9: Expected specifications for India unit
The Xiaomi Redmi 9 is expected to launch with a 6.53-inch LCD display with HD+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio, just like the Redmi 9C. It’ll ship with Android 10 OS-based MIUI 11 out-of-the-box. This one is a more affordable version, so it is likely to keep the MediaTek G35 octa-core SoC, just like the Redmi 9C Malaysia unit. For additional storage, the devices supports microSD card slot.
