Xiaomi will likely launch the Redmi Note 9 with updated specifications that will allow the brand to compete with new mid-range devices in the Rs 10,000 to the Rs 20,000 segment. It is likely that the brand could adopt a new Snapdragon 700 series processor for the phone. Moreover, the phone could also feature a 64-megapixel camera and probably a quad-camera setup on the back.

The Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro were great value-for-money devices. However, the phones did miss out on a couple of features like an AMOLED screen. The Redmi Note 8 series also used a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It remains to see if Xiaomi will be updating the new Redmi Note 9 in these areas as well.

It will also be safe to assume that Xiaomi will implement some form of fast charging in the Redmi Note 9 that will bring it up to speed with competition like the Realme X2, and even the upcoming Realme 6 series.

We could also see the next budget Redmi device launch along with the Redmi Note 9. The Redmi 9 will succeed the Redmi 8. According to rumors, we could possibly see the Redmi 9 be powered by a MediaTek Helio G70 chip. According to another report by 91Mobiles, Xiaomi might even launch the Mi 10 series in India alongside the Redmi Note 9 and Redmi 9 series. However, this is not yet confirmed by the brand and remains to be seen.
