Qualcomm has introduced new processors in its Snapdragon 4 Series and 6 Series mobile platforms. Even MediaTek has introduced new gaming-centric chipsets in the form of Helio G70 and G80 for mid-range devices. We could see these chipsets make their way into Redmi 9 series this year. The Redmi series has helped Xiaomi unseat Samsung as the market leader in India’s smartphone market. However, it now has new competition from Realme and Vivo in this price segment.

The leaks so far hint at Redmi 9 launching MediaTek Helio G70, which was made official last month. There are also reports that the device will have 4GB RAM and 64GB storage option. However, we might see the smartphone jump to 6GB RAM or 128GB storage this year. The big change is expected to come in the form of a bigger display. This will be a big change in the making for the Redmi series. In the past, we have seen Xiaomi use Qualcomm chipsets primarily for these range of devices.

With Realme C3 set to launch in India on February 6, Xiaomi will need a new Redmi 9 or Redmi 9A to stay competitive. Realme is already teasing the device with a bigger display and better performance. While Xiaomi remains in the lead, Realme remains the fastest growing smartphone brand. Realme has established itself with the C-series and number series in the market. Xiaomi seems to be paying heed and is preparing to fend off the new rival with the upcoming Redmi series.
